Summer is here in Hong Kong, meaning it's hot, hot, hot. With humidity at its peak and stressful, sweaty work commutes, it's crucial to find some downtime to relieve from the warm weather. We've found the best luxury massage treatments to indulge in this summer to beat the heat and rejuvenate at the city's best spas.
LANDMARK Mandarin Oriental's East-meets-West approach – differing from its more traditional sister property Mandarin Oriental – makes it a contemporary haven for wellness seekers in the city. Nestled away on the fifth floor of the hotel, The Oriental Spa feels worlds away from any downtown bustle, amplified by its expansive space which features everything from an authentic hammam and Morrocan Rasul to a sleek indoor swimming pool and amethyst-crystal steam rooms. The Summer Rejuvenate package is the perfect solution to weekday blues, a 90-minute session that combines the signature Citrus Boost Facial and Back and Shoulder Massage to refresh and energise against the summer heat. For those seeking a moment of total relaxation, book the spectacular Sanctuary Suite to spend an hour alone (or with a plus one) at the spa's largest treatment room, featuring a private jacuzzi, sauna, futon bed, treatment beds and dressing room.
