Set amongst picturesque karst mountains, rolling green hills and meandering rivers, Alila Yangshuo, opened in July, paves the way for an exciting journey into the area’s natural and cultural wonders. Descending through an ultra-modern spiral entryway into a luxurious cocoon, guests arrive at Spa Alila, housed in a unique underground location rebuilt from the old Molasses Storage Tank. The walls and floors are made from volcanic rocks to produce the jewelled hues in the cave-like interiors. Comprised of five state-of-the-art treatment rooms, the Spa offers a rich menu that combines traditional techniques originated from Bali with Yangshuo local ingredients. Trained in anatomical physiology, massage and meditation, Alila therapists blend the latest in organic and health knowledge with a warm and genuine care that flows from the heart through to the hands.
