They say a Hong Kong second is a New York minute – but this fast-paced city has a tranquil side, too. Above the frenetic streets are pools and spas, chill-out spaces and tai chi classes, as hotels vie to help their guests unwind from their busy lives. Here are the best spa hotels in Hong Kong, all bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Kerry Hotel

As if the Victoria Harbour setting wasn’t uplifting enough, the 546-room Kerry knows how to boost your wellbeing. The 25m (82ft) outdoor pool is heated in winter, while inside you’ll find a hot whirlpool bath, sauna and steam rooms. As the spa is open late, slink off before bed for a Signature Asian Blend Massage, which combines Thai pressure points, Balinese and Malaysian strokes and Chinese energy flow, with restorative and balancing effects.

2. Grand Hyatt Hong Kong

In the harbourside commercial district, the Grand Hyatt focuses on fitness for busy guests, with a state-of-the-art gym and classes such as tai chi and yoga by the pool. Combined with the 11th-floor Plateau Spa, which offers Chinese-inspired therapies in ensuite treatment rooms, it’s one of the most impressive wellness retreats in Hong Kong. Take some time to relax in the courtyard after the spa, in the soothing sun-dappled shade of the trees.

3. Hotel ICON

The Angsana Spa at Hotel ICON is the award-winning sister brand of spa resort innovators, Banyan Tree. Natural ingredients and aromatherapy are at the heart of the treatments, which are finished off with a relaxing footbath as you sip herbal tea. Treatment rooms are far above the ordinary, as each has a jacuzzi and separate shower room. You might find yourself keen to work out, too, since the double-height gym and outdoor pool come with an inspiring harbour view.

4. Cordis

Above busy Mong Kok, you can cool off with ice pops in cabanas and laps around the outdoor 20m (65ft) pool. You can’t help but feel Zen when you’ve partaken in tai chi with the resident master and had a treatment at the Chuan Spa, where ancient Chinese medicine informs the menu. The Chuan Bathing Ritual takes you on a watery journey, with a herbal steam room followed by a Japanese onsen shower.

5. Rosewood

Chain Hotel

The Rosewood takes a whole-lifestyle approach to wellbeing. The fitness centre features a 25m (82ft) outdoor infinity pool, private coaches, group classes and state-of-the-art equipment, all with mighty harbour views. Setting it apart are the assessment sessions, which are short (around 45 minutes) but high-impact, designed to reflect on your self-care, reduce stress, manage your energy and promote a mindful work-life balance.

6. The Murray

Set apart from the cluster of Central District skyscrapers, the Murray offers far-reaching views and plenty of space to sprawl in the modern rooms. The spa, which focuses on medically inspired massages, is the only one in Asia to partner with Dr Barbara Sturm’s coveted skincare line. The hotel is also a master of mindfulness, offering everything from calligraphy, tea ceremonies and gong therapy to yoga, tai chi classes and guided nature hikes.

7. The Landmark Mandarin Oriental

Spread over two floors of one of the most prestigious hotels in the world is the serene Oriental Spa, itself one of the top spas in Hong Kong. Arrive an hour before your treatment to make the most of the heat and water experiences, including experience showers, an ice fountain, amethyst crystal steam rooms, saunas and vitality pools. The couples spa suite, which you can book for up to five hours, is the ultimate retreat from the city bustle, with a vitality tub, dual massage beds and shared futon.

8. The W Hotel

On the 76th-floor rooftop of the W, you will find the highest outdoor heated swimming pool and jacuzzis in Hong Kong. A few floors below, the large Bliss Spa has 80 treatments on the menu in nine harbour-view rooms. This international chain is famed for its sprinkling of fun, hence the movie-while-you-mani station and Wet Weekends, which include access to the heat and water facilities and two glasses of Veuve Clicquot while you soak up the sun.

9. The Mira

In vibrant Tsim Sha Tsui, the shopping and entertainment district of Hong Kong, the Mira caters for spa-loving groups. Cocktails and canapés put an indulgent spin on your treatments when you book a bespoke SPArty package with your friends. In the treatment rooms relaxation is taken seriously, with personal light, sound and temperature settings. Or simply flop in the MiraSpa, alternating between the heated waterbeds, sauna, steam room and infinity pool.

10. Four Seasons Hotel

The Four Seasons brand is known for innovative spas, and the Hong Kong branch lives up to the hype. It’s geared up for holistic experiences; from soothing spa treatments to sound therapy and guided meditation. Take yourself on a restorative journey with their half-day Well Feeling package, where a full-body massage using a warm herbal poultice is followed by a mini facial, a tea ceremony or bath therapy, then lunch on the pool terrace.

11. The Langham

It may have opened almost 140 years after its London counterpart, but the Langham lavishly captures a sense of bygone eras, down to the chandeliers and Rococo swirls. Tradition meets state of the art at Chuan Body + Soul wellness centre: there’s a split-level fitness club and outdoor pool, plus a menu of spa treatments inspired by Chinese philosophy. Try the Chuan Balancing Massage, which uses acupressure to promote the circulation of the body’s life force (Qi) and aid healing.

12. The Ritz-Carlton

Once you zip up the 80-second lift to the Ritz Carlton, which tops the International Commerce Centre in Kowloon, you may never want to leave. The Ozone rooftop lounge delivers a skyline panorama, live DJs and Sunday brunch, and there’s an indoor infinity pool with a mirrored ceiling and LED lights. Facing the harbour on the 116th floor is the spa; book the Harbour View Spa Suite Retreat to sip bubbles in a hot tub before your personalised massage.
