These are some of the best spas in Hong Kong
1. Elu Spa
An urban retreat in the heart of Central, Elu Spa offers luxury treatments that will definitely relax you. Working with leading brands such as Aromatherapy Associates, Eminence and C Lab & Co, we tried the Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience and we were in heaven. What we love about this spa is the welcoming modern vibes coupled with the friendly and experienced staff. On top of that, you can head in for a couples escape, book spa parties for the kids, and there are also a range of specialist treatments for men on offer. The herbal teas and the blueberries are added bonuses.

2. Chuan Spa
Set inside Cordis, Hong Kong in Mong Kok, Chuan Spa is an amazing oasis of calm and tranquility. We think it’s one of the best spas in Hong Kong for a number of reasons, so sit back and get ready for it. The service here is just amazing, with a friendly and professional team who are just world-class, this coupled with the fact that they integrate the five elements of Earth, Wood, Fire, Metal, Water into their treatments makes them firm favourites.

Joyce Beauty Facial Treatment Suites is a Central haven for lovers of high end skincare with a fashion flare. Using luxury products, such as Omorovicza and 111Skin, the facial menu is full of temptations.

4. Angsana Spa
Located inside Hotel Icon, this is definitely one of the best spas in Hong Kong for total relaxation. The Angsana Spa signature massage is a one-way ticket to pure bliss, from the butterfly pea tea served pre-treatment to the wonderful massage services, and the fact that each Angsana spa therapist undergoes at least 350 hours of training based on a stringent Banyan Tree Spa academy curriculum. Walk in, float out.

5. Emmanuel F
As well as offering hair and makeup services, Emmanuel F in Central has an amazing selection of organic and eco-friendly spa treatments. Enjoy one of their signature facials, or get comfy on the ergonomic spa beds and let the massage therapists work on your tight spots. We think this is one of the best spas in Hong Kong, as they integrate sustainable interior design and practices into their studio to lessen their impact on the earth.

6. The Spa at Four Seasons Hong Kong
No list of best spas in Hong Kong would be complete without including the Four Seasons. From the Vitality Lounge, that includes relaxing pools that all guests at the hotel have access to, to the beauty treatments available to the public, this is the ultimate spot for exceptional service and complete pampering. Our absolute fave is the wonderful Jade Stone Therapy Massage, in which the stones emit negative ions to help boost your immune system – perfect for busy people in Hong Kong. Their Executive Grooming Facial for men is also super popular.

Walk into any Sense of Touch spas in Hong Kong and you’ll come out glowing and rejuvenated (at a good price, too!).

Sense of Touch even offers Male Grooming for the fellas who want to get a bit of pampering done. There are programmes for everyone from kids to mothers-to-be, to brides-to-be.

Looking for an urban sanctuary with a boutique vibe to get pampered at? Flawless Spa in Central is the place to relax. They work with amazing brands, including the wonderful Aromatherapy Associates, offering treatments like the Pollution Lift to cleanse and brighten your skin, skin needling and a selection of massages to help you de-stress and sleep better (the Ultimate Aromatherapy Associates 90-minute massage is a winner!) We also love getting our nails done here, with obligatory glass of bubbly, of course. It’s definitely one of the best spas in Hong Kong.
