Take some much-needed couples time with your partner and treat yourself to a couples spa day.
When you’re busy raising a family, working, juggling everyone’s schedules and more, it’s hard to carve out some time together as a couple. And experts will tell you that your marriage should come above everything else in order to have a happy family life. So we think booking in a special stress-relief day for just the two of you is exactly what’s needed! We’ve found the best of the best, so here are our picks for you and your partner to enjoy together.
The luxurious spa at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is always an indulgence, and one that can be made all the more special by experiencing it with your other half. With three couples’ suites available, not only will you be able to enjoy your treatments together, but you can also relax in a private steam shower, jacuzzi or detoxifying Ganbanyoku bed (depending on which room and services are booked). There are four couples’ spa packages to choose from depending on whether you’d prefer massages, body scrubs and more.
Enjoy a “Spa Within A Spa”, a wonderful luxury for couples to enjoy. With the Time Together treatment, you’ll enjoy a bespoke massage in the private spa suite for two with sweeping views over Victoria Harbour. You’ll also get access to a whirlpool for two and unlimited use of the pool along with a healthy poolside meal.
If you want a spectacular view as the backdrop to your treatment, look no further than the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong. Its Harbour View Spa Suite Retreat package is unlike any other in Hong Kong. You’ll be treated to a three to four-hour couples’ spa experience (ranging in price from $7,050 to $8,950) from selected massages and facial treatments and, best of all, you will enjoy one-hour access to a private couples room which is perched high above Victoria Harbour and the South China Sea and comes with light snacks and beverages.
The two couples’ treatment rooms at Wellness at the Murray are a great way to unwind with your other half. Indulge in any of the spa’s relaxing massages or beauty rituals and then top it off with your private steam and sauna facility. There’s also a delicious (and healthy!) snack bar so you can revitalise with some nutritious treats after your treatment.
If the indulgent experiences of the five-star hotels are proving to be beyond your budget, take a look at Sense Of Touch. There are three locations in Hong Kong (Central, Repulse Bay and Tseung Kwan O) and all offer a signature couples spa treatment. Each location offers its own variations but all include a relaxing massage to ease those weary muscles along with either a facial or body treatment.
Recharging with your partner is the perfect way to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Lush’s signature treatments are a special combination of music, massage, fragrance and holistic techniques designed to rejuvenate the body and mind. Whether you’re after a couple’s massage, body scrub or facial, most of Lush’s treatments can be accommodated in the double treatment room.
