For our latest Hong Kong round-up, The Sybarite checks into the renowned Peninsula Hotel for some much-needed downtime, and brings you The Peninsula Spa experience.
The 7th floor of The Peninsula Hotel is like entering another world, far from the hustle and bustle of the city, a discovery that can make anyone realise why the hotspot is so widely recognised as a world-class hotel that truly embodies a sensory experience throughout. The palatial spa is spread across 12,000ft, and if what you seek is a luxurious, fascinating wellbeing experience, it is the perfect place. Think contemporary design, rustic woods and marble interiors, providing a true Zen-like escape from the outside world.
Discover a fusion of Chinese and contemporary spa elements in this experience. Start by enjoying refreshing tea and hot towels as you complete your personal survey for a dedicated aesthetician to understand your specific skin concerns. The 9th floor is home to the Hammam-style steam rooms, crystal steam room and a relaxation room where you can relax and unwind, whilst indulging in complimentary fruits and healthy shakes and drinks, all the while embracing Hong Kong’s stunning Victoria Harbor.
Treatments on offer include the ‘Haute Couture a la Carte Collagen Facial’ by Margy’s Monte Carlo – as recommended by The Peninsula. This facial includes a facial steam whilst algae patches are gently massaged into the skin, so that an Extra Rich Firming Mask can create an exceptional base layer of moisture helping to reduce fine lines. This 90-minute facial treatment will leave you feeling reutilised and renewed. (We fell in love with the effects so much we took home a bottle of Margy’s Eye Serum as The Peninsula Hong Kong is the only place carrying the Margy’s line).
Peninsula Spa Director, Enid Fernandez tells us that “Margy’s Monte Carlo is the best-kept beauty secret of many of the world’s most famous and glamorous women”, and after experiencing the products, the facial treatments, and the incredibly effective Ultimate Aesthetic Facial Treatment by Margy’s, we can see why. The spa “continually strives to bring customers the finest and most cutting-edge services from around the world”. Margie Lombard has kept ‘Margy’s’ low-key, unwilling to expose her brand commercially and rather keep it exclusive. The Peninsula Spa strives to find effective treatments from brands that don’t necessarily wish to enter cosmetics mass market and would rather focus on individual clients in a space that only The Hong Kong Peninsula can provide for its customers.
We highly recommend The Peninsula Hotel Spa for its service level of staff, overall aesthetical experience, curated treatments and state of the art rooms. From beginning to end, it was a wellbeing journey to remember and we know that we will be returning to get our regular Margy’s Monte Carlo fix.
