Whether you love the British Royal family or not, there is one thing we can all be enamoured by: royal romance. As the most eligible bachelor and somewhat bad-boy of the British Royal family weds his awesomely stunning bride Meghan Markle on the 19th May, we are feeling the royal buzz in the BloomMe office and have decided to explore royal treatments in Hong Kong.
To get you in the mood, we have compiled a list of spas in Hong Kong we love. Just remember to BYO tiara/crown.
Princess Beauty is one of our best royally kept secrets (see what we did there?) Nestled in Gold Swan Building, everything about this spa is so luxurious and private that you’ll feel like it was built just for you. On offer in this spa is everything from facials to massages to a herbal tea after your treatment. They even have some amazing 3D lashes that can make you go from zero lashes to Bambi with mascara on, but in a way that leaves the lashes looking natural and fresh.
In addition to some amazing treatments, the treatment rooms in this salon also come with a fully fledged bathtub. How about sliding into a hot bath complete with floating flowers after a long day? At Princess Beauty, you are the princess. So make sure you’re treated like one.
Treatment we love
Hot Stone Detoxification Body Massage – 45 minutes @ $328 before discount
Have you started your obsession with hot stone massages? What better way to finish off your day with a hot stone massage that will instantly remove all tension and stress in your body. Expect fluffy towels and ridiculously good smelling oils during this massage, but be amazed by how affordable it is. Princess treatment on a university students budget.
Address: 5F, Golden Swan Commercial Building, 438-444 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay
The Feel Good Factor
If stunning decor is your jam, then the famous Feel Good Factor spa in Central is your new place of residence. Just like Buckingham Palace, this spa has some of the most intricate and decadent furnishings in Hong Kong. A favourite amongst yummy mummies and other people worthy of the glam squad, this spa offers all sorts of luxurious treatments for when you really want to be pampered.
You’ll be handed a beverage, a magazine, and most likely have a good conversation with the person next to you as you are scrubbed and polished to high heaven. Be sure to book ahead using the BloomMe app, as it gets crowded on the weekends.
Treatment we love:
Spa Pedicure – 90 minutes @ $550 before discount
The view from this spa is worth the appointment alone. Think tessellated and ever so divine tiles surrounding your throne as your feet are soaked, polished, scrubbed, shaped, massaged, and cared for in such a way that they may soon become your pride and joy.
Address: 2F, Winsome House, 73 Wyndham Street, Central
Airplay Blow Dry Bar Landmark
If you haven’t been to a blow dry bar, you are missing out on life, my friend! New to Hong Kong and quickly taking it by storm, this innovative way of being pampered is something to be seen. With lots of treatments on offer, we can’t help but swoon over the hair tools used in this salon. Somehow, they have managed to wrangled acoustics so that you can have a conversation with your best friend while getting your hair blow-dried. But best of all, the most royal part of all of this: you get a pink champagne to seal the deal. Book in before heading out for a special event, or even just brunch, and walk out like a celebrity.
Treatment We Love:
Half & Half / Updo @ $530/$680 before discount
Let the super team at this bar transform your do, with 12 different styles to suit any occasion completed in as little as 30 minutes. There’s even a team of makeup artists on hand should you wish to go all out!
Address: Shop 317, 3/F Landmark Atrium 15 Queen’s Road, Central
Le Spa Caudalie
Did you know that Queen Marie Antoinette didn’t actually say “let them eat cake”? What we think she meant to say was “let them eat grape(s)” because at Le Spa Caudalie you can do just that. Plus almonds, but maybe those were implied. This spa is famous for their Vinotherapie treatments, beds that you may actually fall asleep on, and staff so lovely that you’ll swear you’re in some royal day spa. With massages and facials that seem to be out of this world, Le Spa Caudalie is French luxury for the everyday queen.
With a huge selection of products and herbal tea ready to go, you’ll come for the service and skincare and stay for the hospitality and luxury.
Treatment we love:
Beauty Elixir Energizing Facial – 80 minutes @ $1240 before discount
Using Caudalie’s famed products and expert application, your face will be glowing with natural beauty after this 80 minute treat. Expect smoothing, toning, refreshing, moisturising, loving feels during this treatment, and make sure to relax even more afterwards with a tea and snacks.
Address: GF, 3 Gough Street, Sheung Wan
The Right Spot
When a young woman named Mary was having drinks with her friend in a bar in Sydney, she didn’t realise the man she’d met was Crowned Prince Frederik of Denmark. Fast forward to her wearing the crown, and we guess you could say she was in the Right Spot at the right time. That’s why we love The Right Spot in Central: only good things can come out of you being there.
Famous for their massages and staff, this urban luxury spa will offer you a gift for first time visitors, and send you on your way with a smile on your dial.
Plus until June 3rd, with BloomMe you can enjoy 30% off all facials & 25% off massages, manicures, pedicures, and hair removal from The Right Spot. Wowzah!
Treatment we love:
Foot Reflexology – 100 minutes @ $705
They say that everything is connected, and you’ll soon discover that the right massage technique in your foot will ultimately heal all your pains and stress within seconds. Enjoy top notch foot reflexology and 10/10 treatment for a next to nothing.
