It is 40 kilometers from Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport and takes only 30-minute car ride from there. Built beside the Jialing River, with Jinyun Mountain Forest Park standing behind, the resort is located close to an ancient hot spring temple with a history of 1,600 years. This area is the birthplace of Chinese hot spring culture and is filled with a profound historical and cultural atmosphere. The poetic tranquility makes it even more beautiful.

From the very beginning of every Brilliant Resort & Spa’s construction process, environmental planning was acknowledged as the most important thing. During its construction, Brilliant Resort & Spa stuck to low-carbon and environmentally friendly principles, as a result of which, all the constructions are a perfect mix with Nature. Tall trees go through the roofs, the buildings and trees come together reflecting a beautiful scenic painting on each window. Everything in Brilliant Resort & Spa is based on Nature and Nature embodies the resort’s exquisiteness.
Brilliant Resort & Spa, Chongqing serves as a good example of how to preserve old buildings with profound historical and cultural value. A great number of these buildings including Shu Fan Lou, Qing Room, Bamboo house, Brilliant Lou and Farm were constructed during the period of the Republic of China. Taking care not to change their original appearance, Brilliant Resort & Spa, Chongqing has successfully renovated these buildings and endowed them with new tasks to inherit traditional local culture.
Shu Fan Lou was built in 1930, featuring stone walls, wooden stairs and a tile roof. Adjascent to Jinyun Mountain with Jialing River flowing in front, visitors are able to overlook the colorful sails of the boats on the river. Which is how this building got its name. Many leaders of the Communist Party of China such as Zhou Enlai, Zhu De, Dong Biwu, Liu Bocheng and important members of the Kuomintang government once stayed here. Huang Yanpei, a Chinese educator, industrialist, politician, and one of the founding pioneers of the China Democratic League, once wrote a poem that expressed the leisure and carefree feelings when he was here. Plenty of high quality wines and cigars are stored in Shu Fan Lou, which is the wine cellar of the resort and also the site of the Shitou Bar.
As a part of the presidential villa in the resort, the Qing Room once served as the exclusive place where Soong May-ling, the wife of Chiang Kai-shek, spent her summertime. The quiet and secluded Qing Room is surrounded by the mountain on three sides with one side facing the river. The shape of the cliff where the Qing Room located is like the shape of qing, a traditional Chinese musical instrument, and when the waves of the river roll in, its sound is also like the qing, which is why people now call it the Qing Room. The revamped Qing Room features 3 separate rooms which are all fully equipped. It is definitely a wonderful and unique experience to try the outdoor hot spring built on the cliff.
Built in the same period as the Qing Room, the Qing Garden tells a story with a theme of changes. The pits in the cobblestone road and the moss growing on the edge of the pool show how the seasons are changing. The spring water falling from the cliff is like a water curtain hanging in the air. With twisted roots and gnarled branches, the tall Ficus beipeiensis are rare plants, with strong roots fastened firmly to the rock of Jinyun Mountain. You will find the amazing power of Nature and Time in Qing Garden.
Walking on the cobblestone path, through the narrow space of the passageway, you will find yourself being in a unique spot at Brilliant Resort & Spa, Chongqing – the Natural Limestone Cave.

The entrance of the cave is so narrow that only one visitor can enter at a time. The scene inside is definitely breathtaking.
