9-hour transit, just want to eat well close to the trains

We are scheduled to arrive at 3pm and transit for 9 hours. The flight leaves shortly before midnight. Read through some recommendations regarding the maglev train into town.

Can someone recommend a relaxing itinerary/destination not far from where we need to catch the train/s back that has nice restaurants and maybe something relaxing such as a spa/massage? We are ladies on way back home from 3 tiring weeks in Europe and just off a 10 hour flight. Would really appreciate a good/relaxing/not necessarily expensive place for a good meal and to sit and kill a few hours (not so much sightseeing as we've toured Shanghai before).

Thank you, TA's!

Take the Maglev train to the Longyan Station (end station), transit to subway line 2, exit Lujiazui station. There you'll find a couple of shopping malls with lots of restaurants inside. A couple of them faces the Bund so you can have a relaxing dinner.

At the Maglev, you can also switch to line 7, take it 1 station to Huamu Road and go to the Kerry Parkside mall. There is a Dragonfly spa there... very popular with the expats in town. There's also a range of restaurants and an international supermarket in the basement. You can Google Kerry Parkside for their official website and see everything they have in there.

Oh one more thing. Definitely do not try to get a cab at the end of the Maglev. This area is notorious for taxi scams. It'll be best to take the metro or walk down the street and hail a cab.
