This destination resort spa – the largest of its kind in the world – was named one of the world’s best spas for 2012 by Conde Nast Traveler. Mission Hills Volcanic Mineral Springs and Spa is home to the largest natural springs reserve in Southern China. The property measures an incredible 21 acres, with a 215,000-square-foot spa. The magnificent Spa at Mission Hills is the central defining feature of the expansive mineral springs complex. The iconic main spa structure is comprised of soaring, semi-circular bamboo. The soaring spaces make a powerful design statement, while the use of locally-abundant lava stone and bamboo firmly grounds the design in the nature and topography of Hainan Island. This impressive structure is surrounded by 473,000 square-feet of lushly landscaped gardens, more than 150 springs and water features, and treatment venues inspired by the five continents – Asia, Oceania, North & South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa – which comprise the Volcanic Mineral Springs. Featuring 61 treatment suites, the Spa takes its design inspiration from the traditional Hakka Earthen Fortress Villages of Southern China.

“SB Architects has helped us realize an inspired vision for the design of Mission Hills Volcanic Mineral Springs and Spa. The visual and experiential impact truly befits the largest spa destination in the world.”
