Best Massage

The Oriental Spa at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental. There are two things I love about the Mandarin’s spa: the amethyst crystal steam room and the Japanese hot stone therapy. Absorbing the energy from the crystal in their spa room calms me down and allows me to communicate with myself and find peace. Hot stone therapy is more like a deep-cleansing therapy that allows you to detox and revitalise. It’s a very good de-stressing activity.

I think Hong Kong’s best-kept beauty secret is Joyce Beauty’s Central treatment suite. They do facials using products from some of my favourite niche skincare brands like 111 Skin and Omorovicza. Also, the Balenciaga robe is ace.
