Take some much-needed couples time with your partner and #treatyoself to a couples spa day out.
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 Chuan Tao Ritual offers two and a half hours of blissful treatment for two that is meant to ease your tension and rejuvenate your skin. Starting with a full body exfoliation, you’ll then be wrapped in warm algae to start the detoxification. The acupressure massage is followed by a revival facial, and the end result is pure bliss.

The Eastern Experience ($6,750 on weekdays, $7,560 on weekends) here is a special one we can’t overlook. Offering a unique Japanese “Ganbanyoku”, couples who book in for this treatment will be treated to the Ganbanyoku hot stone therapy, followed by a sakura or yuzu-infused rinse. After that, get ready to be cleansed by an Azuki bean scrub (to rejuvenate and brighten your skin), as you’re then prepared for a 90-minute Chinese Meridian massage, which uses acupressure to address your Qi flow and relax you both.
Feel like you need more than just an hour and a half? Book a staycation at the Ganbanyoku Oasis room and you’ll get a city room view, a three-hour Eastern Experience for two, a 60-minute personal training session for two at its Fitness Centre, and daily breakfast for two (available until 30 September for $5,875 per room per night).

If you want a spectacular view as the backdrop to your treatment, look no further than the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong. Its Private Luxury Retreat With A View package ($8,900 for 180 minutes, $6,800 for 120 minutes) is unlike any other in HK. You’ll be treated to a massage and facial (choices of facial and massage vary) 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.

We like the sound of the Couples Double Martini Ritual ($3,480 for 150 minutes), as it begins with a 60-minute massage of your liking, and is follow up with a radiance facial (for her) and deep cleansing facial (for him). Afterward, take a relaxing bath in the tub made just for two.
The name says it all: “Double Serenity”. This 150-minute massage ($6,300 weekdays, $7,160 weekends) was created specifically for busy Hong Kong couples. Starting with a glass of champers and a bubble bath (hello, luxury!), you’ll get a full body polish with your choice of scrub, and a 90-minute “power of jade” massage using jade stones to “heal and ease stiffness”.
