Sense spa at Rosewood Beijing has opened, debuting an inspirational concept centered on the principles of simplicity, purity and well-being. The Sense spa in the Chinese capital joins 11 distinctive Rosewood Sense® spas worldwide, from Mexico and Caribbean resorts to New York and other world cities.
The Sense experience in Beijing is both holistic and authentic, from the use of exquisite natural bamboo linens to premium quality organic essential oils. The finest indigenous raw ingredients are paired fluidly with timeless health and beauty rituals. An integrated sanctuary, the Sense concept flows seamlessly through every touchpoint, from the interior design to the choice of exclusive product brands to the signature treatments that are perceptively customized to each individual.
Product brands include Germaine De Capuccini, a premium European brand, and Ba Yan Ka La, a homegrown Chinese range using certified organic ingredients harvested according to the ancient wisdom of the Chinese Lunar calendar. Some treatments use ingredients synonymous with Asian culture such as pearl, gold, saffron, and jade.
The surroundings of Sense incorporate the healing benefits of nature. The pool area is encased by a soaring domed glass roof – the only one of its kind amongst Beijing luxury hotels – that allows natural light to flood the space, while the flames of candlelight encircle the still water at night. Abundant foliage, akin to that of a tropical resort, fills the area. Private cabana alcoves within the comfort of a temperature-controlled environment, allow visitors privacy to absorb the nurturing atmosphere.
Spa suites are designed in keeping with the Sense concept to include some with open-air balconies and lush greenery. Five of the 11 spa suites are ultra-spacious at 65 to 91 square meters for the luxurious option of overnight stays.
Sense also offers the most sophisticated of amenities and facilities, from Gharieni treatment beds that convert into extravagant water spa tables complete with LED bars for color therapy to spa facilities that include a fitness studio with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment and a yoga studio.
The 32,000-square-foot Sense spa interior is a calming and cohesive universe of blonde woods, contemporary leather and bamboo furnishings, and intriguing contemporary artwork mirrored in reflection pools.
The comprehensive menu includes treatments for men, teens and pregnant women. Sense spa signatures include:
