Situated on cloud 72 (rather than cloud nine) of the W Hong Kong hotel tower, this spa offers incredible views over Victoria Harbour. It’s a funky, modern approach to the formulaic spa model, eschewing mystical ambience – you won’t find any chanting rainforest frogs in the mood music here – in favour of urban chic. You’ll be welcomed with a brownie buffet and cucumber lemonade before heading off to your choice of facial, massage, body, nail care and waxing treatment (all using Bliss products). Don’t forget to pop into the harbour view vitality pool!
