It’s a tough brief, but Gayatri Bhaumik donned her fluffiest bathrobe to uncover Hong Kong’s best spa packages.
Blissing out at Hong Kong’s Four Seasons hotel.
Hong Kong’s summer spa packages are up and running after more than a month of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To welcome back their loyal customers, many of the city’s wellness destinations have put together exclusive offers, discounts and treatments – and they’re certainly worth checking out.
To continue curbing the spread of coronavirus, most spas have still not opened their heat and water facilities, but you can still nip in for a menu of indulgent treatments.
Spa at The Four Seasons
This sophisticated oasis of wellness has several exciting offers available just in time for summer. Most of us pay attention to the skin on our face, but what about our backs? If you’re planning to hit the beach this season, you’ll want to book in for the new Back Facial ($2,150-$3,3100). The deeply cleansing treatment will thoroughly refresh with a clean, steam, exfoliation, peel, and extraction.
The spa is also offering private Vibrational Sound Therapy sessions (30-minutes; $880) which incorporate Tibetan singing bowls and gongs. If you want the full experience, book the new Wellness Staycation package which includes a 15-minute sound therapy session along with a 60-minute energizing massage, 20-minute Shirodhara, and 10 minutes of Reiki healing.
The Peninsula Spa at The Peninsula
This is consistently named one of the best spas in Hong Kong, so it’s no surprise that this sophisticated spot has put together a great package for its grand reopening.
The Spa Birthday Pamper is the ultimate treat for your special day and is available from now right through until December 31.
The package includes a 75-minute Aromatherapy Massage ($1,680-$1,780) plus use of the spa’s lavish heat and water facilities that include Thermal Suites with harbour views, a sauna and crystal steam room, and the Asian Tea Lounge.
For an additional $288, you can also enjoy a Natural Peninsula Poolside Lunch at the hotel’s chic pool deck.
If you’re really looking to treat yourself, though, upgrade your package to the premium option ($2,280-$2,380) which includes a 75-minute Aromatherapy Massage and a three-course Contemporary European dinner at Felix by chef Juan Gomez.
P.S. We hear The Peninsula Spa will be debuting more exciting offerings later this year…stay tuned!
Bliss Spa at W Hong Kong
Is your skin suffering from wearing facemasks all the time? The new Diamond Cocoon Extreme Repair Experience ($3,980) will sort you right out.
Available at the cosy Bliss Spa at Kowloon’s W Hong Kong hotel, this treatment is an intensive 10-step, 90-minute facial that will transform your skin.
Created by Spanish skincare brand Natura Bisse, the treatment includes a 360-degree rotating pore clean, hydrating e-mesotherapy, and a cutting-edge prebiotic extreme repair formula. Like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, you’ll leave Bliss Spa with plump, glowing skin.
Base Camp Kerry Sport Spa at Kerry Hotel
Get away from it all and head out to Hung Hom for an day-long Urban Retreat ($1,250; until July 31).
It includes unlimited access to the gym and signature infinity pool, as well as a pampering 60-minute massage of your choice.
If you happen to be celebrating a birthday this summer, you could also book the Birthday Spa Retreat. This celebratory affair features a 60-minute massage, a 30-minute massage or facial, plus a birthday cake and Zents bath truffles – you can even bring a friend for the same price ($1,300 per person).
The Oriental Spa at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental
This lavish wellness oasis may be located in the heart of bustling Central, but it’s a haven of tranquility. It’s celebrating its reopening with an exclusive package that’s available until the end of May. Slip in to treat yourself to a 60-minute Oriental Essence Massage and a 60-minutes BGA Pedicure for just $2,168. You know you could use the stress relief and nail care right now…
ASAYA at Rosewood
This opulent integrated wellness centre at the glamorous Rosewood Hong Kong has a real treasure trove of treatments available, from facials and massages to personal training and posture correction. And, now that they’ve reopened their facilities, they’re offering 25% off all treatments until June 30 so you can really treat yourself to a slew of indulgent rituals. Try the 90-minute Rosewood Extreme 360 by Evidens de Beaute ($3,680) which has been specifically developed to smooth the signs of aging and restore radiance and hydration to the skin.
