Zen infused villas beside natural hot springs in China’s tea capital, Anxi

Unique Qualities

  • Individual villas set in peaceful gardens
  • Restorative hot spring therapies using fresh tea leaves
  • Tea and incense ceremonies from China’s past

The hotel in detail

Among the tea terraces of southern China you’ll find Elite Spring Villas – an exclusive resort celebrating historic Chinese culture. With heritage-inspired buildings set beside tranquil pools, this boutique hotel immerses you in the sights and sounds of nature. Leave the outside world behind and let the peace of this Zen retreat soothe mind, body and soul.

Stroll along pathways between gently bubbling fountains to your private villa. Each offers a contemporary take on authentic Chinese design, with atmospheric touches such as calming sandalwood incense. Expect spacious living and sleeping areas, and luxury hot tubs in some villas. Enjoy a dip in the open-air pool or a relaxing soak in the tea-infused hot springs. Then experience an authentic tea ceremony using freshly picked Anxi leaves. Local ingredients are also on the menu at the restaurant, where you can sample Min and Yue regional delicacies.

When you’re ready to explore, hop on an Elite Spring Villas bike to cycle through the hills of Anxi. Take a tea-tasting tour to try revered varieties such as Iron Guanyin, a variety of Oolong tea. Or go slightly further afield to Qingshuiyan, a hillside temple built almost a thousand years ago.
