Spa of the Week: The Ritz-Carlton Spa by ESPA at The Ritz Carlton Hong Kong


A bustling metropolis like Hong Kong boasts some of the most luxurious hotels in the world. So, it is no surprise then that the city is also host to some of the world’s finest spas, which provide the perfect retreat for Hong Kong’s well-heeled dwellers and visitors alike. At 1,588 ft. (484 meters), The Ritz-Carlton Spa is one of the highest spas in the world.

Recommended for Men – Therapeutic Massage
We recommend this fantastic treatment priced at $218. This massage may last 80 minutes but its effects last for much longer. This massage uses specific techniques to release muscular tension. It uses firm pressure that works deeply into the muscles and connective tissues to release aches and pains.

Recommended for Women – Tri-Radiant Boost
We recommend this fantastic treatment priced at $308. Carefully incorporating ESPA’s innovative TriSerum, the 110-minute “Tri-Radiant Boost” is a luxury treatment that instantly boosts skin health while improving the tone and texture of the skin, delivering immediate silky and radiant benefits. The treatment begins with a 50-minute body massage using the powerful TriSerum and ESPA Deeply Nourishing Body Cream. The dedicated therapist performs the ESPA advanced pumping and lifting massage techniques, resulting in instant improved elasticity and skin complexion. It is then followed by a 50-minute bespoke regenerating facial using smoothing and lifting movements which improve skin texture and tone, diminish fine lines and give the skin a youthful lift at the same time.

If you are in the mood to splurge – Radiance Jade Facial
Honestly, what is worth splurging on is the Radiance Jade Facial. This revitalizing and brightening facial helps refresh tired skin, giving a noticeably brighter and naturally radiant appearance. The treatment begins with deep cleansing and exfoliation to remove dirt and debris from the skin, followed by a face massage using ESPA Super Active™ Skin Radiance Moisturiser to revive and uplift the skin. ESPA Super Active™ Skin Radiance Mask will then be applied, revealing a supple complexion and restoring the skin’s natural glow. The guest will at the same time enjoy a soothing head and shoulder massage which helps relieve muscle tension. The treatment also includes the use of jade stone rollers to ease and rejuvenate the eyes. Jade is a traditional oriental gemstone which is believed to heal, discharge toxins and remove negative energy. Our therapist will gently massage around the eye with an iced Jade stone roller to stimulate blood circulation and reduce under-eye puffiness for a refreshing look. This one is priced at $270.
