A tranquil world awaits at the Banyan Tree Hangzhou, a resort located at the edge of Xixi National Wetland Park. Here, weary pleasure seekers can try the Gui Shi Hot Stones massage, said to promote the flow of qi, or luxuriate in the Oriental Bath Experience, which offers a choice of yin (cold) or yang (warm) body scrubs derived from indigenous materials such as longjing tea. Stay at least a couple of days for full effect—the resort’s soothing natural environment is a tonic in itself.
