Mission Hills, the world’s largest golf club, launches on a grand scale its own signature spa brand with three locations scheduled to open within the coming nine months. With an investment of USD 15.8 million, the Mission Hills Spas are set to be among the largest in Asia offering the most comprehensive facilities, treatments and services in the region.
“Our goal is to become one of the leading spa destinations, offering the best of leisure and wellness products,” says Ken Chu, Vice Chairman of Mission Hills Group.
Three distinct spa concepts are specially designed for its golf club’s expansive lay out sprawled over a 25 square kilometer area: Clubhouse Spas - Spring Hill and Forest Springs in two locations throughout the Shenzhen and Dongguan Clubhouse; Resort Spa - Spring Valley in the Country Club, Shenzhen; and Destination Spa - Wellsprings nestled in the highlands of the National Park Reserve in Dongguan.
Destination Spa - Wellsprings scheduled to open in the spring of 2007, will feature some of the most elaborate and exquisite bathing rituals harking back to the Greco-Roman origins of spa—aquatonic pools, tepidariums, samarium, and caldariums.
Ranging in size from 1,400 to 12,000 square meters, each spa will have its own distinct interior design concept, but all will promote the Mission Hills philosophy of a lifestyle of leisure and wellness. The spas will feature water and heat facilities, marine-based, thalassotherapy-inspired treatments, traditional Chinese healing practices, and in some locations, a teens’ spa—all aimed at drawing people to China’s burgeoning spa scene.
Due to the size and scale of this undertaking, Mission Hills has developed its own In-Spa Academy with the capacity to train hundreds of therapists.
With its golf courses and luxurious residential properties onsite, Mission Hills will be on the forefront of the trend toward communities designed around the theme of healthy living. “The addition of our own signature spa brand complements the overall Mission Hills experience,” says Peggy Liong, Spa General Manager.
Accredited by the Guinness World Records(TM) as the World’s Largest Golf Club, Mission Hills features ten 18-hole golf courses designed by legendary golf masters. It is also the only home to the Mission Hills David Leadbetter Golf Academy in China, and offers a five-star Mission Hills resort and luxurious residential developments.
