Sprawling golf and spa retreat at the foot of Purple Mountain, a three-hour drive from Shanghai
In Jiangsu Province, a three-hour drive from Shanghai, Sofitel Nanjing Zhongshan Golf Resort is a sprawling five-star retreat at the foot of Purple Mountain. The 140 guestrooms feature blond wood furniture, chunky fabric wall tiles and Chinese silks and they all have balconies overlooking the mountain or the 27-hole Nanjing Zhongshan International Golf Course. The spacious rooms start at 650 square feet and come with separate dressing areas and bathrooms with tubs and rainfall showers. Beyond the fairway, the resort is home to tennis courts, a large indoor pool and a fitness center. Finish off an active day with a treatment in the spa; treatments combine traditional Asian therapies and French L’Occitane products. Dine on Asian-European fusion dishes at Le Pavillon, Italian pastas at Basilico or traditional Cantonese cuisine at Zijin Court and sip a post-dinner drink at La Veranda, a Euro-style lobby lounge and cigar bar.
In the Area
Nanjing has twice served as China's capital and this university town is an interesting mix of crumbling ruins, super-size shopping malls and wide leafy boulevards lined with chic apartments. The Linggu Temple is home to the Beamless Hall, built in 1381 entirely out of brick and stone with no beam supports. Nanjing Museum, modern China's first national museum has an impressive array of artifacts dating back to the Neolithic period, the building itself was constructed in 1933 in the style of a Ming temple. Head to the Great Nanjing Eatery, an old-style teahouse, for local snacks like duck blood soup with rice noodles, or Cosima Restaurant to mix things up with tapas and a glass of sangria. For a shopping fix, Aqua City is Nanjing's newest mall and Librairie Avant-Garde is a huge indie book store in a disused bomb shelter.
