Escape to the Intercontinental Century City’s spa for head-to-toe pampering. Located on the second floor, this hidden oasis may not have the most extravagant lounge or locker areas, but the luxury spa’s biggest draw are the treatment villas. Don a plush cotton robe and slippers and your therapist will whisk you away to your designated private villa. Here, the therapist will have you choose from a selection of aromatherapy massage oils to apply to your temples. Once inside the 1136 square foot bungalow, you are greeted with luxe amenities including treatment beds, a large shower, lounge area with TV, private restroom and a Kohler bathtub with light therapy. Whether you choose a body treatment such as a scrub, wrap or soak—be sure to pair it with one of the indulgent massages from traditional Swedish (50 minute/$135) and Shiatsu (50 minute/$140) to the Thai Herbal Bolus massage (50 minute/$150), where bolus filled with herbs are massaged into the body to relieve tension and the Jetlag Restore massage (50 minute/$150), which helps the body recover from aches through improved circulation. Check the website for weekly deals including 20% off treatments Monday-Friday for local residents. What’s more? In addition to the full hotel gym, the spa offers one-of-a-kind workout classes on the rooftop helipad, such as yoga and Zumba (free for hotel guests, $15 for non-hotel guests) and complimentary 2-hour valet parking with any spa visit.
• Tip: Ask for Alice. The veteran masseuse uses her skills from her training in Taiwan with magical hands that can expertly open any knot in your shoulders or even help a cold or sore throats through reflexology. Alice does wonders when it comes to relaxation, even reminding you how to breathe through her deep tissue strokes.
