10 Luxurious Spas in Hong Kong

January 21st, 2011 by

As the most vertical city in the world and with a population density well over 6,000 per km2, Hong Kong is a place where it pays to know a good massage therapist. A frenetic hive of activity, Hong Kong throbs with a vertigo-like pace that thrills and, indeed, exhausts even the most ardent adrenaline fiend.

This, of course, is where the best spas in Hong Kong come in.

The Peninsula Spa by ESPA
Salisbury Road,
Kowloon, Hong Kong

The Peninsula is synonymous with genteel colonial charm in Hong Kong and is the most historic hotel in the special administrative region. ESPA, a haven of wellness sensibility, is a plush destination in the city, with fourteen distinct treatment rooms that overlook Victoria Harbour.

All the rage in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, New York City and London, Strip Ministry’s fun and iconoclastic approach to hair removal has garnered the international chain a cult-like entourage of fans. If a Brazilian or “boyzilian” is not your idea of a peaceful day at the spa, take heart. Hong Kong’s two funky Strip Ministry outlets offer other services as well.

Plateau Spa at Grand Hyatt Hong Kong
1 Harbour Place
Wan Chai, Hong Kong

In hyper-competitive Hong Kong, restaurants, hotels and, indeed, spas, must embrace a singular focus in order to emerge from the pack. In the case of the Grand Hyatt’s plush Plateau Spa, the angle is “results-oriented” treatments. A recipient of several “Best of” polls, the Plateau Spa is perhaps the most comprehensive in the city.

1 Austin Road West
Kowloon, Hong Kong

For a nonpareil luxury spa experience in Hong Kong, head to the 116th floor of the International Commerce Centre, where the 860 m2 Ritz-Carlton awaits.

Victorian Spa Hong Kong Disneyland
Hong Kong Disneyland
Lantau Island

Mickey Mouse and massages? You bet! If you can wrap your head around the concept, the Victorian Spa at Hong Kong Disneyland on Lantau Island is a serious contender for best in the city. If you prefer to maintain that meditative state post-treatment, skip the theme park and zen out at Tian Tan Buddha Shrine.
