The Newly Opened Imperial Springs Resort, China

Imperial Springs Resort is a newly opened, supremely luxurious five-star property in southern China located on its own private 2.8 million square meter estate, an area larger than Monaco. Featuring traditional Chinese architecture, Imperial Springs is situated in the mountainous region of Conghua on the site of natural hot thermal springs long recognised for their healing qualities.

Imperial Springs' spacious 90 suites have access to a private swimming pool whilst the 37 villas offer a further degree of exclusive separate living with a private outdoor pool, a Jacuzzi and access to the hot springs. All guests receive 24 hour butler service.

•Phoenix Mansion, the presidential villa, with its own 28 guest rooms
•The Kingold Museum housing over 20,000 priceless Chinese artefacts

•A 27-hole championship golf course designed by Colin Montgomerie
•A choice of six restaurants each offering a different culinary experience

ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS – Imperial Springs' spacious 90 suites have access to a private swimming pool whilst the 37 villas offer a further degree of exclusive separate living with a private outdoor pool, a Jacuzzi and access to the hot springs. All guests receive 24 hour butler service.

Phoenix Mansion, the property's presidential villa, so named because it sits atop Phoenix Mountain, is as beautiful as it is exclusive, offering its occupants no less than 28 guest rooms.

The curated KINGOLD MUSEUM houses more than 20,000 pieces of beautiful and rare items of Chinese art and relics over two floors. From Chinese ceramics to paintings and wood engravings, the artefacts touch on many aspects of China's 5,130 year old civilization, and provide a unique insight into the local culture. Private tours can be arranged for guests.

The IMPERIAL SPA is incorporated within a beautiful, serene garden. Guests can choose from a range of pampering experiences including Chinese therapies designed to balance mind and body, as well as Thai and Turkish treatments.

The world class, 27-hole championship GOLF COURSE was designed by Colin Montgomerie and is located in the heart of the mountains, surrounded by clear freshwater streams. Meanwhile the prestigious Clubhouse is a fusion of Chinese decor and Western design providing unobstructed 180 degree views from its panoramic balcony.

The property's six elegant DINING options offer not only the very best Chaozhou cuisine, one of the most famous cooking styles of southern China, but also a selection of European and world cuisine.

Guests can also venture further afield by delving into the pristine mountains and verdant forests that surround Imperial Springs on guided walks, treks and cycle TOURS.

With calm and relaxation being of paramount importance, no cars are allowed on site which is why state-of-the-art golf buggies provide the transport of choice.

I like this. The "oooh, sportsball is happening . . ." condescension can get tiresome.

There are times when we all need some reality management . . . especially from a friend.

Very cool photo (no pun intended), shot from Trump Tower (posted by Trump Jr., actually). While not a Trump fan, I envy the view!

This sort of appealed to me as well since I stayed not far from here for a few days back in August, just a couple of blocks east. I spent a lot of time in Central Park (walks to museums, Shakespeare in the Park, etc), and seeing it like this now is fascinating!

Yes, they could have filmed parts of the movie here! They did film parts of the original Star Wars series near here.
