Giant panda resting in a tree, Chengdu
Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountains, Chengdu
- A super-luxe eco-retreat with a resolute dedication to wellness
- Perfectly situated to reach the area’s acclaimed beauty spots and famous pandas
- Learn about the origins of Taoism
At the gateway to the sacred Qing Cheng Mountains, Six Senses exists with a proud commitment to be a sustainable and responsible (yet unapologetically luxurious) resident in this abundantly beautiful area of China.
Every room is a suite here, and an expansive one at that. Sure, you’ll love the organic bed linens, antique-inspired furnishings, rainforest showers and vaulted ceilings (and techies will go gaga over controlling the lighting, air-con and TV by smartphone), but the real reason the suites are so special are the beautiful views.
The enormous spa takes your sense of peace to yet another level. There’s a devotion to guests’ wellbeing here, where the Taoist spa therapies are complemented by tai chi and yoga to reset minds and bodies in the most beautiful and tranquil of surroundings. Quite simply, if you need to destress – this is surely one of the best places in the world to do it. Post spa, head to the Farm2Straw juice bar for vegetable and fruit smoothies that are boosted with organic honey, medicinal and vitamin selections, bee pollen, ginseng and ginger.
When it comes to food, guests are spoiled too. Three restaurants, two bars, a classic tea house, and a snacks and dessert house cater for all tastes. There’s an admirable focus on sourcing produce from the local community and from the hotel’s organic garden to meet Six Senses’ ambitious sustainability and community goals.
The sensational Six Senses Quing Cheng means feasting on healthy food, looking after our bodies and minds just that little bit better than usual, and getting out to see those amazing pandas.
