Dragonfly @ Xinle Retreat

star star star star star 177

206 Xinle Road, Xuhui District

The Xinle Retreat is the often busy flagship branch of this staple popular Westernized chain. The 'retreat' version adds a little extra in the way of tranquility and even adds a VIP love nest. It’s fairly consistent and offers the full and broad range of massages & beauty services. Everything from nails and foot massage to waxing and all-over massage. Massages here are not as brusque as the average walk-in Shanghainese foot rub place. Dim lighting, calming soundtrack and pleasing aromas are the order of the day at Dragonfly. The treatments are good, solid and nothing too fancy - the prices, in comparison to some of the city’s more premium offerings, reflect that. They have quite a few locations dotted across the city, with each one being fairly consistent. The retreats are a great way to relax after a long day exploring. You may want to book a few hours in advance to ensure you get the service you want as the locations downtown are often busy.
