Chill in China at Mi Xun Spa

Mi Xun Spa opens in Chengdu China at The Temple HouseSpa lovers who want a break from the hustle-and-bustle of Chengdu will feel right at home at the new Mi Xun Spa at The Temple House (China), located just steps from the heart of the city’s busy retail area. Designed to mix modern sophistication with local heritage, the spa is found on the site of a former mulberry garden of the Daci Temple and is housed within a heritage building that dates back to the early years of the formation of the Republic. The 9,600-square-foot spa features 11 treatment rooms, including four standard rooms, five spa suites, and two VIP experience suites, as well as a tea house and a retail store. Treatments performed using Meseostic, Natura Bissé, Refinery, and Thémaé product lines honor local traditions but with a contemporary twist. A highlight is the Mi Xun Autograph Massage ($129, 50 minutes; $189, 80 minutes), which offers a combination of skilled hands and specially designed bamboo tools, sourced locally from Chengdu, to deliver a targeted massage for a thoroughly relaxing and invigorating sense-of-place experience. “Mi Xun aims to create a thoughtful and holistic spa experience,” says director of spa Kelly Coates. “All of our treatments are curated to deliver results, while the tea house provides a tranquil setting for guests to relax and recharge while enjoying healthful refreshments. The spa treatments and tea house experiences perfectly complement each other, and at Mi Xun, our guests enjoy the combined benefits of both to help them ease away the tensions of today’s busy city lifestyle.”
