The luxe 82-room Bulgari Hotel Shanghai has made its debut. A highlight of the new property is the decadent 6,500-square-foot Bulgari Spa, created in partnership with Goco Hospitality.
The spa features five single treatment rooms, a double treatment room, a foot massage room, and a couples’ spa suite that provides exclusive access to a Roman-inspired hot tub and private sauna, which are complemented by a 25-metre signature Bulgari indoor heated swimming pool and a vitality pool. A salon, a traditional Italian male barbershop, a juice bar, a gym, and a mind-and-body studio round off the comprehensive wellness offerings.
The spa’s treatment menu combines advanced beauty treatments alongside traditional local wellbeing rituals. The Bulgari Signature Journeys were inspired by the classic wellness traditions of the world. An ancient wellness practice from the palaces of Central Java provides an exotic and stress relieving experience, while the Intense Protection Ritual works to protect and restore the skin from a variety of environmental pollutants. Balancing Qi applies the deep wisdom found in traditional Chinese medicine—incorporating traditional herbs, Tai Chi movements, and acupressure to relax muscles, stimulate energy flows, and achieve mental and physical harmony.
“China is the world’s second-largest spa market, with more than $7 billion in spa revenues per year, and wellness trips grew at an average annual rate of 26.6 percent between 2013 and 2015, showing just how dynamic the spa and wellness market in China is right now,” says Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality. “The new Bulgari Spa is truly raising the standard of luxury spa offerings in China.”
