Let’s admit the fact that Summer 19′ is already coming to the end. Either you’re done with traveling or need a break from work, don’t forget to treat yourself at the end of summer and get ready for the next season. Hong Kong’s newest urban retreat Elu Spa just opened in the heart of Central. Located in Lyndhurst Terrance, it’s the retreat that should on your go-to list at the moment.
Elu Spa is all about the back-to-basics philosophy and all-natural treatments featuring a wide array of services, from facials and aromatherapy massages to body scrub and nail services.
Say hello to the other side once you step out of the elevator. With a scent of aromatic essential oils and warm greetings from the staff, the therapeutic feeling will hit you immediately. Once you walk into the lounge, you’ll find yourself in the most instagrammable spot at the spa. With a Hermes Avalon throw blanket and luxury brand books on the coffee table, you know that’ Elu Spa encapsulates a lifestyle. There’s no such thing about being too extra when it comes to spa, so don’t worry and make sure you have your camera ready for the gram.
Served with a cup of herbal tea in the lounge, you will be given a form to pinpoint the areas of muscle aches on your body and to choose different aromatic essential oils to be used in the treatment. What we like about Elu Spa from the very beginning was the attention to details and guests’s preferences, which reminded us of their core philosophy of “back-to-basics.”
If you’re looking to deal with stress and relieve physical aches, the Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience (HKD $1,800) is one of the best treatments to try. Focusing on your needs, the personalised experience will make you feel instantly better, from chronic muscle aches and joint stiffness to poor blood circulation and overactive mind by using deeply releasing massage techniques. We’re pretty confident that the treatment will help you relax and give you peace of mind (at least for 60 minutes!). If you also find your skin to be dry, add a 30-minutes Body Scrub & Wrap treatment to remove dead skin cells through exfoliation.
Sleek and minimalistic, Elu spa might not have many facilities but the attention to details and excellent quality of the products and treatments, make it a go-to retreat. PS: the washroom is also worth a visit before you leave. Full of Aesop products, it is perfect for a quick shower before you head to your dinner date.
