Owner description: A stylish and beautiful spa lounge since 2004 ~ French concession Hidden Gem. Down a quiet lane in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the French Concession, you stumble upon Diva Life. WOW! It’s so quaint and fun and Chinese but not Chinese at the same time… it’s just a wonderful location to while away an hour or a few treating yourself to a massage, facial, waxing, manicure or pedicure. The staff speak excellent English and are very eager to please. The manager Yvonne is extremely well tuned to western needs since she went to university in Boston, USA. Built in 1933, this historical three-storey complex was once the home of a Jewish wine merchant, H.L.MENKEN, who had moved to Shanghai from Russia with his family since 1930 due to the volatility caused by World War I. His father was once the publisher of a local Jewish daily back in St. Petersburg, since then, MENKEN had developed a broad interests and comprehension of art and wine. Soon after his move to Shanghai, MENKEN started his own business in wine trading and distribution. In 1934, MENKEN bought this house in the original French concession as his permanent residence in Shanghai and utilized the well as his personal wine cellar till the liberalization of PRC. This house has been fortunately well preserved and now is an English friendly Spa Lounge with international hygiene standard, which provides customers a truly sensational enjoyment in health and beauty field.

Reviewed March 5, 2013

Just 3 minutes walk from the trendy “Tianzifang,” down a quiet lane in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the French Concession, Diva Life provide many services, such as massage, facial, waxing, manicure or pedicure. It's so convenient to choose one or some of them which makes no need to go to other spas. The staff can speak both madarin and English fluently. The boutique house is said built in 1933, which decorated romantic purple, makes me feel comfortable and always enjoy a good time here.

“Spa treatment on a lazy Saturday - Girls only!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Diva Life is all about pampering girls. The walls are purple, the furniture is all pink and violet. Very boudoir-style. Make sure you'll grab the main lounge where you can hang-out with three girls (or even more). Therapists treating hands and feet simultaneaously, doing your nails, painting everything brand new.
We really enjoyed it!
