Ahh, an afternoon at the spa. One of the most relaxing attributes of the Beijing spa is its low price compared to spa fees in the West. In China, enjoy a relaxing full body massage for under $50, or soak in the soft salty aromas of the traditional bath for less than $30. A facial will cost you half what it does back home, and a foot massage will not only relax you, but only slightly lighten your wallet at around $25 USD.
The most popular chain spa is Dragonfly. You'll find dragonfly retreats all over the city and all over China. With trained masseuses, you are sure to get a good deal that is also safe and secure, without the fear of any hidden 'treatment's lurking as the massage comes to a close. These professionals really know their stuff, and the rooms are clean, well lit and ready to receive customers.
Bodhi and Quan are two less popular joints, but only because they are less prevalent in terms of coverage. Dragonfly really has a massive portion of the reputable massage business market share in China. These two options are similarly priced and offering similar services.
The hotel spas are 5-star quality and you are not likely to get much savings there. However, that isn't the point of the spa, is it! The Rits-Carlton has an impressive spa, as does the Peninsula and Westin. All cater to Western standards and have additional amenities like gym, pool and sauna access.
