The new Wanda International Resort Complex in Xishuangbanna, southern Yunnan province, has drawn on its location in the largest and most well-preserved rainforest in the northern hemisphere as inspiration for its new Shui spa.

The rainforest-themed spa is made up of five detached villas, each featuring a treatment room, “card room” (whatever that is), hot tub and outdoor swimming pool. 

Along with the Wanda International Resort Complex, two other properties—DoubleTree by Hilton and Holiday Inn—together form a new holiday destination.

The complex includes a theme park, a rainforest recreation and adventure park, a hospital, commercial center, a theater and a new resort village. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like seeing the words “adventure park” and “hospital” in the same sentence. Anyway, I’m sure it’s fine.

Wanda Vista Xishuangbanna Resort’s 26 buildings are designed to blend with their natural surroundings while emphasizing local Dai heritage and culture.

Its 151 guestrooms, comprising villas, suites and detached private villas, come with a private pool, tropical garden and open terrace.

Prices start at RMB1,080 ($1,300).
