Banyan Tree Shanghai Spa Launch/Release


Banyan Tree Spa brings its award-winning blend of Asian therapies to greater heights with the launch of the Spa at Banyan Tree Shanghai On The Bund, Shanghai's first all river view hotel.  This marks the second outlet in Shanghai following Banyan Tree Spa's debut in the city in 2003 and the group's seventh spa in Greater China.

A Sensory Experience at Banyan Tree Spa

Located in Shanghai's iconic Bund district, the Spa is close to both historic landmarks and the new cultural and commercial centres of the cosmopolitan city.  Spanning over 1,300 square metres over three floors within the urban resort, the award-winning spa features 11 exquisitely appointed treatment rooms including two Imperial Rooms with a Rainmist facility or Thai Massage area, four Double Deluxe Rooms and five Single Rooms. The name of each room is inspired by the 24 Chinese solar terms. For a rejuvenating wellness experience, the spa is complemented by a beauty salon, nail bar and Banyan Tree Gallery. 

Embracing the local culture and traditional Chinese healing philosophy, Banyan Tree Spa Shanghai On the Bund's design concept is themed on the Five Elements, which are translated into unique colours and inspirations.

The Spa showcases a contemporary design combining sleek lines with traditional materials. Warm lighting, an inviting reception area which exudes elegance with a clear glass panel embedded with grey criss-cross textured patterns, a beige sofa and silk floral-motif throw cushions are just a few of the comforting touches.

A Spa stairway leads down to treatment rooms with sunlight streaming in from a skylight overhead.  The walkway of treatment rooms is framed on one side by a two-storey wall of vivid green plants which embraces nature, with a contrasting dark wooden wall opposite which features symmetrical vertical metallic strips.

Treatment rooms draw reference from the Five Elements of gold, wood, water, fire and earth in their design.  The Water-themed rooms feature clean horizontal lines across the ceiling and crystal-blue lighting; Gold-themed rooms include classic matte gold accents; Fire-themed rooms showcase vibrant red hues; and Wood and Earth rooms feature soothing neutral tones.
