Soak your winter blues away@Chun Hui Yuan Hot Spring Resort

Chun Hui Yuan bucks the trend in the world of Beijing hot springs, forgoing kitsch adornments and faux tropical scenes for something more stylish, with classic wooden trellises and sleek stone furnishings dominating the decor. The baths are divided into three areas - one indoor, two outdoors - and vary in size with plenty of options for both couples looking for a bit of privacy and large groups. The Garden Baths garner the most attention: ten steaming open-air pools offer different types of aromatic-infused waters to help relaxation; stay here into the evening for a soak under the stars. The next-door Lakeside Baths shouldn't be missed either, offering views of Chun Hui Yuan Hotel's grounds beyond.

Alongside the 30-odd baths, Chun Hui Yuan has a heated indoor swimming pool, hot stone resting beds, steam rooms and saunas - the "hot" sauna even has a plunge pool and television for optimum chill time. There's an onsite spa offering a range of treatments, including a foot massage and a whole-body oil massage.
