Clinique La Prairie is continuing its international expansion with the forthcoming opening of a new longevity hotel-spa in Anji, China, in partnership with Sunjoy Group.

It is the fourth Clinique La Prairie overseas destination, following the unveiling of longevity hubs in Madrid, Bangkok, and an upcoming opening in Doha this summer.

The 12,850 sqm Chinese resort will open in 2023, and will offer one-week programmes designed to inspire guests to live a fuller, longer and healthier life.

The new Clinique La Prairie Health Resort will be situated around 180km from Shanghai West in a “secluded haven of peaceful waters and stunning mountains, with views that roll out across a serene lake, reminiscent of the Lake Geneva’s setting of Montreux”, the company said in a statement. The surrounding hills are home to tea farms, growing the famous Anji white tea.

The resort will feature seven villas, housing 29 rooms and suites, which are built around a core building that houses the Medical Pillar, the Wellness Pillar, the Movement Pillar and the Nutrition Pillar, plus masterclass lounges and a restaurant.Clinique La Prairie Anji, ChinaClinique La Prairie Anji, ChinaEquipped with the latest medical and wellness technologies, the Anji resort will deliver a range of Longevity, Master Detox, Beauty, Weight Management and Wellness programmes.

The CHF 40,200 (£35,000) Revitalisation programme will only be available at Clinique La Prairie Montreux in Switzerland.

Guests will have access to a state-of-the-art facility in China offering exclusive programmes and holistic wellness that are the foundations of Clinique La Prairie for 91 years. We are very confident we will offer an unmatched experience in China.”
