Nestled in the grounds of ancient hot spring temples, the Brilliant Resort & Spa, Chongqing (Chongqing Bailian Wenquan Jingpin Jiudian) is the perfect tonic to the daily grind and is just 40 km from Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport.
The lush green surroundings and Ming and Qing dynasty temples set the perfect stage for the Brilliant Resort & Spa's 31 spacious rooms and suites, each of which features its own private outdoor hot spring, southeast Asian-inspired decor and tremendous river and mountain views. A 24-hour butler service is on hand to ensure guests' have the utmost enjoyable stay.
Two restaurants offer Chinese and Japanese cuisine with a focus on healthy eating and quality ingredients, accompanied by fine vintage wines and an extensive sake selection. The creatively-inspired can whip up their own creations at the in-house cooking school, alternatively guests can just relax and enjoy cocktails and fine river views in the Long Lobby Bar.
All of this is just a precursor to the main event of course, the hot springs and spa. Kick back and enjoy a range of products that run the gamut of well-being and relaxation techniques from across continents, from Swedish massage to Chinese Tui Na, rebirthing, meditation, Dead Sea therapy and Ayurveda. Set to the sound of Taoist temple bells, evening drums and the gurgle of the 1,600-year-old springs, it's a physical and spiritual experience.
