I love a luxury hotel. For me a luxury hotel is the kind of place that I never want to check out of. A space that I would prefer to live in than my own house, and believe me, there are surprisingly few hotels that I stay in that I would like live in on a permanent basis.
Imperial Springs in Conghua, China is one of these “chop my arm off to live here” places. Located in the foothills of the scenic Conghua Phoenix Mountains, a holiday destination for the worlds’ elite, this resort is tucked away picture perfect pavilions hovering above meandering waterways and secluded pools. In fact, the Imperial Springs hotel (a member of Small Luxury Hotels) looks as stunning as a Chinese painting – it is as if you are walking through a willow pattern plate!
Beyond the hotel, the mountains and lakes of Conghua beckon. The area’s ancient hot springs offer the chance to take a rejuvenating soak in the mineral-rich waters, an anti-aging must do!.
