Don’t think a bathing suit belongs on your Shanghai packing list? Then surely you haven’t been acquainted with the Peninsula’s heated Olympic-sized pool—in a spectacular light-filled atrium with an art deco fireplace, palm fronds, lounge chairs, and an adjoining outdoor terrace. A swim is one of the myriad ways to recharge your body and mind within the 13,445-square-foot spa. You can enlist the help of personal trainers at the 24-hour fitness center and book treatments ranging from chakra balancing sessions to Ayurvedic massage and scrubs. The Peninsula also uses cutting-edge therapies like KORE, a program that combines Eastern and Western techniques to identify and relieve pain.
