Milan is Europe’s third largest city – and the biggest city that is not a capital. While it may not be Italy’s bureaucratic centre, it’s certainly the country’s visionary brain, pushing international boundaries in fashion, art and design for centuries. A city break here is a treat for the senses, so why not go all out and stay in one of these top spa hotels in Milan.
Right in the heart of Corso Buenos Aires, Milan’s buzzy shopping district, the Worldhotel Cristoforo Colombo offers 128 tranquil rooms to relax within after some retail therapy. Don’t leave without visiting the Hado Spa, a tranquil, intimate space with a Turkish bath, sauna and hammam. If you book one of the suites, your stay comes with a complimentary 30-minute body massage including eye contour treatment and Aleppo black soap scrub.
Soft lighting and comfortable chaise lounges placed around the pool enrich the atmosphere of this wellness centre at one of the most renowned hotels in the world. Everything at the Mandarin Oriental has an Asian element, from the decorations to the choice of treatments. Try the Oriental Qi, an essential oil massage that works on the meridians of the body, or the traveller’s package, a series of massages that includes jet-lag cures to remove fatigue and reactivate circulation after long flights. Couples can book a massage for two in the VIP suite.
Inside the Enterprise Hotel, Le Terme di Kyoto spa is a tribute to Japan, employing warm tones such as red, black, beige and green. The wellness itinerary includes an immersion in the hot tub, followed by 10 minutes in the steam bath with aromatherapy. One of the treatments is the Cherry Blossom Ritual, which is a scrub with cherry blossoms and rice powder, followed by the application of a cherry blossom butter all over the body. The treatment ends with a relaxing full-body massage.
