You can walk in the footsteps of explorer Marco Polo and watch the pandas… Try your hand at adventure in this sacred place where old and new worlds magically meet.

Last but not least, they are the sanctuary of the Sichuan Giant Panda, which you can get up close to during your visits. On nearby Mount Emei, visitors can admire the world’s largest stone-carved Buddha. This short list is just a taste of the many unique experiences and cultural discoveries the region has to offer.

A Taoist symphony in your suite
Among its many practices, the wisdom defended and embodied by Taoism is reflected in the mantra “follow the same path as nature“. A return to our roots, to authenticity as an ideal of carefreeness, spontaneity and individual freedom, a return to the cycle of nature.
As a result, the resort’s rooms, suites and detached houses are all furnished in noble materials, bright, sober tones, with exposed beams and high ceilings for an atmosphere of calm and lightness.
The suites are designed to be enjoyed individually or to create memories with family and friends, forming a kind of private community. For example, a set of four suites can open onto a central courtyard, like a private garden. 102 suites welcome you with their own view, garden or private courtyard, depending on how your stay suits you. From 78 m² to 120 m² in some cases, the suites with garden or courtyard are little jewels in themselves.
19 villas with private garden or pool are also available at the resort. Just like traditional houses…but much larger, from 212 m² for the smallest to 330 m² for the largest.
All villas have two bedrooms, while the larger ones have a private kitchen and dining room, a games room and magnificent outdoor spaces or terraces.
The Presidential Villa features 4 suites and a dedicated room for your butler. The villa’s swimming pool is heated. Fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, library, wine cellar, spa room on site. All bathrooms overlook the outdoor gardens, and this villa offers the ultimate in exclusivity and privacy.
A 1,700 m² spa to restore unity
As throughout the resort, this alliance between contemporary and Taoist tradition is perfectly orchestrated. For the Tao, all things are unified and connected. At the Six Senses Qing Cheng Spa, all ten treatment rooms overlook waterfalls and gardens– a true connection to nature! Treatments combine local rituals and Six Senses signature treatments for an enriched approach to well-being.
The spa also features a men’s and women’s sauna and hammam, a communal relaxation area, a Tai Chi garden, a yoga and meditation studio, not to mention the aforementioned gym and indoor pool.
In terms of treatments, treatments such as Gua Sha promote circulation and reactivate the body’s metabolic functions. Thanks to an ancestral treatment technique that uses palpation and stimulation of the epidermis by pressure from a rounded-edged instrument, a kind of pebble, you’ll discover Sha. The sha hand is the one that applies pressure. This treatment may cause tiny red spots that fade quickly. This is a good sign that your sha has been effective and is boosting your blood circulation! Blood stagnation is considered pathogenic in Chinese medicine.
Tui Na is a Chinese manipulative technique based on Taoist principles. It helps restore the body’s overall balance, balancing Ho (support, compensation) and Sha (support, power) as in certain Shiatsu practices. Moxibustion, a traditional Chinese treatment discovered over a thousand years ago, uses moxa (dried plant material) to stimulate pressure points, invigorate and balance qi (energy) and treat existing or developing health problems.
And let’s not forget Sublime Skin Deluxe Lift, a deep-acting anti-aging facial that regenerates, prevents and corrects.
True to its connection with and roots in the surrounding natural environment, Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain makes the most of local plants in its treatments , such as the green tea scrub with natural rice pearls, or even local honey.
At the spa, you can also discover the healing properties of many of the herbs, spices and ingredients used in spa products during wellness workshops at the Alchemy Bar.
Yoga and tai chi prolong the beneficial, anti-aging effects of your treatments. Tai chi classes are held at the magnificent Puzha temple, followed by a Zen tea ceremony. Don’t hesitate to contact us to choose the treatment rituals that suit you best. Preventive Chinese medicine is at your fingertips in this award-winning spa to activate the healing powers of Taoism while aligning your qi.
