The best spas and massage places in Hong Kong

A sensory break from Hong Kong is sometimes necessary. After all, you must have eaten, shopped, and trawled through one too many night markets and hiked too much. Need a bit, or a lot of pampering? Hong Kong just happens to be one of the best cities to find a spa and massage that will unknot your muscles and calm your restless mind.

Mandarin Oriental Spa

A journey to the East is best taken with a full body massage based on traditional Chinese medicine. The décor in Mandarin Oriental Spa speaks of refined elegance, without elements that are too overtly luxurious. The treatments offered are quite extensive, some of which are unique and not something you’d easily find in your downtown spa back home. The Mandarin Oriental Signature Spa Therapy is one where your current state of mind and well-being is taken into account before your treatment, and the massage oil is created for you. Also, there is also the Imperial Jade Ritual that stimulates your acupressure points and releases tension, while Jade rollers are used to lift and tone your facial skin.

A sit in the Chinese herbal steam room completes the day, and you’d wish you were a hotel guest instead of having to go out into the city again.

How often do you get to go to a Feng Shui-friendly spa? This is your chance to experience harmony inside out. I-Spa is Intercontinental Hong Kong’s answer to your weary traveler’s body. If you have time and don’t mind splashing out on an almost four-hour ritual, I-Spa’s full day treatments will make you feel like complete royalty. Otherwise, a 90-minute Chi Balancing Massage will do the trick of revitalizing you.

If you’re lucky to be an in-house guest, join a complimentary Tai Chi Class or Yoga class at the stunning pool terrace where the pool seems to flow into the harbor.

Zenjoy Massage

If splurging on a spa in a five-star hotel isn’t sitting very well with the holiday budget, take heart that most people probably feel that way, and Hong Kong has no lack of great places to get more no-frills but equally rejuvenating massages. Zenjoy seems to be a place that both tourists and locals rave about. It’s professional, clean, and even has an area dedicated just for women. Try a Chinese Acupressure massage or a Lymphatic Meridian Massage to release tension and toxins. Prices are very affordable, which makes a return visit very plausible.

FLOAX Flotation Therapy

How about a different kind of spa- one that technically doesn’t actually do anything, but does everything that your body and mind needs? Sounds deep, but that’s what FLOAX does. Flotation therapy isn’t commonly found in Asia, but we’re talking about Hong Kong, a place that has a little bit of every part of the world.

FLOAX calls themselves the calmest space in the busiest city, and they may just be about right because flotation therapy is about sensory deprivation. Here, in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, you enter into a weightless existence in a floating pod with no sound, no sensation, and absolutely darkness. Some floaters do it to boost focus, creativity, and muscle recovery, while others may even experience psychedelic and enlightening experiences. And if you don’t get a life-changing message, at least your body and mind would have entered deep rest. Floats your boat?

Le Spa by Jan

Le Spa does the whole package- from facials to massages to slimming, waxing, and even makeup. It’s number one spot on Tripadvisor should probably be quite assuring too. Located very conveniently in Central, Le Spa offers the classic options like Deep Tissue massage and acupressure massage. If your problem of the day isn’t exactly tired muscles but you want to feel toned and sculpted, try their Thalgo body sculpting massage.

Le Spa also offers a much more affordable three-hour ritual than what you’d find in the hotel spas.
