We can’t get enough of the best hotel spas in Hong Kong
1. Asaya, Rosewood Hong Kong
A wellness concept unlike any other in Hong Kong, we can’t get enough of Asaya at Rosewood Hong Kong. Set amid a beautifully designed space in Tsim Sha Tsui, step outside of frenetic Hong Kong and into a sanctuary of calm here. Whether you’re looking for the best facial in Hong Kong or an exceptional massage, you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to book in for time in the Bath House too so you can enjoy the recliners in the jacuzzi.

2. The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong
Following in the footsteps of its sister outlets around the world, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong takes back its spa outlets, which were previously managed by ESPA, to bring not only a brand new concept, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, but also new treatments with lines like MDNA Skin, Nubo and 111Skin.
The menu in Hong Kong specifically pays tribute to the venue’s status as the world’s highest spa by offering experiences that allow guests to feel they are ‘in the clouds’. If that’s what you’re looking to experience, look no further than the Perfect Harmony treatment, a 100-minute long luxurious facial and a body massage, leveraging on the powerful effects of the scarce Montecatini clay by MDNA Skin. But if you’re desperately seeking that all-important Hollywood glow, the spa’s Velvet Red Carpet Facial is a real skincare saviour, with NuBo’s cutting-edge technology in the White Diamond Ice-Glow Mask redefining facial contours and instantly rehydrating the skin. It’s definitely one of our favourite hotel spas in Hong Kong.

3. MiraSpa, The Mira Hong Kong
While there may be many hotel spas in Hong Kong, there’s nothing quite like MiraSpa. It’s a 21st century spa concept built around an urban sanctuary which offers an exciting and fresh range of results-oriented treatments. Featuring handpicked spa brands including Parisian cosmetologist Anne Semonin and the New York-based Somme Institute range as well as The Refinery – UK’s grooming standard for men. Moreover, we’ve been huge fans of the MDT5 Vita Fusion Facial by Somme Institute. This treatment uses precious jade stones to stimulate lymphatic drainage while a glycolic serum smoothes out texture and tone leaving you with a more luminous facial complexion.
Check out why we love staying at The Mira Hong Kong.

4. The Oriental Spa, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong
Hotel spas don’t get any more luxurious than this! Forbes Five Star rated, The Oriental Spa is a calming oasis in the heart of the city – perfect for the time-pressed to get a quick beauty fix. A standout on their extensive spa menu is the Jet Lag Cure – an indulgence to clear the mind and uplift the spirit of any harried traveller or even cures holiday blues! It’s essentially an intensive rebalancing body treatment designed to help fight the symptoms of jet lag from water retention and stiff muscles, to dehydrated skin and insomnia.
Wanting to look good from head to toe, we’d suggest the popular Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by Bastien Gonzalez, which is much more than your average mani-pedi. Expect tools that resemble dental instruments – but fear not, therapists are professionally trained and ensure you won’t experience any discomfort. The result is incredible: healthy-looking nails that are so shiny you won’t even need to wear any polish afterwards. When it comes to hotel spas in Hong Kong, it doesn’t get much better.

7. Plateau Spa, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong
If time doesn’t permit you to travel, you have come to the right place, as this is one of the best hotel spas in town. Plateau Spa offers a holistic, retreat-like staycation and is Hong Kong’s first residential spa. Depending on the treatments chosen, spa therapists will utilise products from any of three proven ranges: Omorovicza luxury skincare products, exclusive to Plateau in Hong Kong, harness the healing and anti-aging power of Hungary’s mineral-rich waters; Carita is an extremely popular French anti-aging skincare brand founded in 1937; and Thalgo, that works to identify, extract and concentrate the benefits of marine water, mud and algae to develop its spa and beauty products.
Those of you wishing to turn back the clock, go for the Cinetic Lift Expert, seen as a viable alternative to cosmetic surgery, and the first to combine ultrasound, micro-currents and LED lighting for visible results after just one treatment – say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles.

11. Angsana Spa, Hotel Icon
Drawing on Hotel Icon’s sleek design and natural approach from sister brand Banyan Tree Spa, we give a huge thumbs up to their idea of bringing nature indoors. The spa’s aesthetic beauty is interspersed with bamboo and charming Asian artworks showcasing bamboo motifs, and treatments place special emphasis on the use of natural ingredients such as native flowers, fruits, and you guessed it, bamboo!
The Bamboo massage is an absolute must-try as the bamboo’s smooth texture and its natural ability to retain heat is designed to soothe tense muscles and is suitable for guests who experience persistent muscle aches and pain. Spa aficionados can also look forward to the body conditioning treatments celebrating the use of natural and indigenous ingredients such as Avocado Smoothie. Rich in vitamins, mineral and natural oils, this creamy mask moisturises the skin and is especially suitable for dry skin. Latte Barley is a perfect treat for coffee lovers. The aromatic coffee cleanses and lightens blemishes while barley nourishes and softens the skin.

I-Spa, InterContinental Hong Kong (closed)
The feng-shui-inspired I-Spa rates high on any spa-goers list and why not, when it’s got the most stunning outdoor pool facility in Hong Kong. With a range of top-notch treatments, they use the latest technology for a slimmer, more toned and sculpted body and face with the newest model of the LPG Endermologie Integral M6 and K-Lift Age Management treatment. The former treatment specifically targets the stubborn hip and thigh areas, while The Cellu M6 body technique uses motorised rollers to help reduce cellulite and enhance firmness. The treatment ends with a firming contour moisturiser to hydrate the skin.
Alternatively, transform your skin with the modern age management treatment, the “K Lift” Youth Accelerator Facial which includes a deep cleansing and exfoliating multi-acid peel for the face and neck. Here, LED red light and impulse micro currents are utilised for an hour to help awaken cell functions, accelerate the skin’s repair mechanism and trigger DNA regeneration. The treatment concludes with the infusion of essential nutrients into the deep layers of the skin using cutting-edge transdermal delivery technology.
