With Mission Hills Resort Golf Club in China already recognized as the world’s largest golf club by the Guinness World Records, the resort now is aiming to build Asia’s largest spa complex.

With 52 treatment rooms complete and more on the way, the renovation of Mission Hills Spa will be spread over more than 200,000 square feet and encompass a hydrotherapy destination spa, spa villas and two resort day spas. Highlighting the renovation will be the Mission Hills Spa Academy, where professional instructors from around the world will direct training including facial and body treatments, hydrotherapy and seaweed treatments.

“Mission Hills is dedicated to providing its guests with luxurious amenities and upscale facilities, both of which have been maintained through the enhancement of our golf and spa complexes,” said Ken Chu, vice chairman of Mission Hills Group. “With the renovation of Mission Hills Spa set to be complete in 2006, Mission Hills will once again set an industry standard as China's largest spa complex.”

Founded in 1994 and just 30 minutes from the Hong Kong border, Mission Hills Golf Club, China, offers 10 signature golf courses designed by golf legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Vijay Singh, Greg Norman and Annika Sorenstam.

The resort features luxury accommodations, its spa complex, meeting and convention facilities and nine restaurants and lounges. More than 30 tournaments and events have been hosted by the facility, including The World Cup of Golf, the Mission Hills Tiger Woods China Challenge and the inaugural Dynasty Cup.
