The Intercontinental Hong Kong Spa has a great location on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong and has top-notch facilities.
We had arranged for a 3 and 1/2 hour treatment, that included a 90 minute massage, scrub of the season and 30 minutes mineral bath, plus lunch by the pool. The lunch was prepared from a special spa menu. You were able to sit in a secluded area of the pool where you could look out across the harbour to the skyline of Hong Kong. Other treatments at the spa are typical of most, but include many with an Asian wellness theme. Our treatments were in a granite spa suite, that included a jacuzzi, sauna and steam shower, as well as massage table. Very nice, comfortable and quiet.
As you enter the Intercontinental Hong Kong Spa, there’s a large reception area and well equipped exercise area as you enter. Walls of glass overlook the large pool area. Changing areas and locker rooms are nice sized. Treatment rooms are separate from the spa entrance. As you leave reception, you walk outside to a separate building that’s just steps away. From the moment you enter, it’s like being in a whole different world. It’s super quiet, with treatment rooms along a dimly candle lit corridor.
The outdoor pool was large and they have a unique outdoor whirlpool. It’s a two level whirlpool. At the top, you have a large whirlpool separated by glass. One side is very hot and the other side ice cold. Both spill over into a moderate temperature pool below. You have phenomenal views of Kowloon Bay and Hong Kong.
Pricing is comparable to most premium spa in Hong Kong. Expect to pay $200 USD and up for a regular treatment, with packages approaching $500 USD or more.
