While we love jet-setting around the globe to explore the best wellness retreats there are on the market, it’s not always possible to take a week’s holiday or a long-haul flight. Between work and family commitments, we’re sometimes lucky to have a night or two to ourselves. Luckily, Hong Kong’s wellness market is thriving, particularly in the luxury hospitality sector, making a staycation in the city the perfect way to retreat at home. Check out our favourite spa hotels in Hong Kong for an urban retreat right on your doorstep.
