Let Loose Together: 3 Couple Spa Treatments to Pamper Your Loved One
Got kinks in your relationship? Iron them out with a couple spa treatment.
The Chuan Spa at Cordis Hong Kong combines updated steam and sauna and outdoor jacuzzi facilities with the seasoned expertise of the international Chuan Spa brand. Couples can get a special Body Element Escape deal, which starts with a 45-minute Harmony massage, reducing tension and restoring balance; and follows it up with a 45-minute Thalgo aromatic bliss facial. All in all, that’s an hour and a half of utter bliss, plus some time to hang out in the sky-high outdoor jacuzzi. Body Element Escape $2,380 + 10 percent. Chuan Spa, 41/F, Cordis Hong Kong, 555 Shanghai St., Mong Kok, 3552-3510
Three floors under the Mira Hotel is a sprawling 18,000-sq.-ft. labyrinth of hallways, soft and purply lit, which takes you through the magnificent infinity pool and past the lobby of Mira Spa where blissed-out patrons recline sipping tea. The VIP suites are kitted out with a large jacuzzi, a rain shower/steam room built for two, and super-plush massage tables. Couples get a short consultation with their massage therapists followed by their own bespoke massage, which can include specially tailored aromatherapy and hot stones. The deluxe Indulgence suite looks straight out of a nightclub in the future, in the best way possible: ambient lighting, earthy details, clean lines and soft banquettes on which to slowly wake up from a long massage. Following a half hour of making use of their luxury splash facilities, the massage begins: The signature Mira Massage unravels every tense strand in your body with hot stones and a combination of Eastern and Western massage elements. Afterwards, spend as much time as you want emerging from your peaceful rest with a soothing ginger tea in their lobby. Weekdays $2,300, weekends and holidays $2,400. Mira Spa, B3/F, The Mira Hotel, 118 Nathan Rd., 2315-5500
Sense of Touch
For a convenient de-stressing session with your other half, a 2.5-hour couple spa booked at Sense of Touch’s Central day spa can’t be beat. At the top of the five-story spa is the Double Martini treatment room: Starting with a 60-minute massage, the therapists settle you in with light stretching motions before diving into an oil massage, concentrating on releasing deep muscle tension or detoxing your lymph nodes. After flipping over, an Elemis sensitive radiance facial for her helps tone and moisturize with a papaya peel cream and a soothing mask, while he gets treated to a simple but effective deep cleansing facial. It all wraps up with a relaxing 30-minute soak in the side by side wooden tubs, featuring Aromatherapy Associates bubble bath. For a quick pick-me-up in town, this couple treatment offers the most freedom of all of the spa’s offerings as you select the treatment according to your own needs, but for a more romantic mini getaway option, you may want to check out the Tseung Kwan O or Repulse Bay spa branches. 2.5-hour Couple’s Double Martini Ritual, $3,480. 1-5/F, 52 D’Aguilar St., Lan Kwai Fong, Central, 2526-6918, senseoftouch.com.hk
