Sanctuary for the soul

Drawing upon the rich heritage of the space, this urban spa is perfect for a post-shopping detox

The Temple House might have opened its doors in May last year, but it continues to be one of the most talked about hotel openings in Chengdu. Even if you're not planning to stay the night, the hotel's handsome Mi Xun spa will grant respite of a different sort. Occupying 900-square-metres, the spa is housed within a heritage building that retains much of the original Western-Sichuan architecture of old.

Mi Xun Spa

The building might be steeped in history, but each of the eleven treatment rooms at Mi Xun are utterly modern. Here, treatments for the face and body incorporate products from international spa brands such as Natura Bissé and Meseostic. Mi Xun is also the first spa in China to bring in the innovative THÉMAÉ range which harnesses the natural benefits of tea to deliver a holistic wellness experience. Men are also well catered for with a dedicated barber salon offering pampering shaves and facials. 

At the end of your treatment, you can adjourn to the tea house to sip on a freshly brewed cup of premium tea — crafted according to Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, no less — to complement the effects of the treatment.
