Tell me, does the following description not make you want to immediately make a reservation at the Plateau Spa at Grand Hyatt Hong Kong?

“Living the spa life is not only possible at the Plateau Spa at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, it’s encouraged. So don’t just book for an hour or three; make it an overnighter. The Plateau’s 14 spa residential rooms have futons, low and minimalist furniture, and a glass-sided infinity bath for two. You could settle in for an in-room massage, then soak in the bath and wake up to a healthy, alfresco breakfast on the balcony or outside under the trees.” (via)

Yes, very much so.

The landscaping at Plateau Spa – complete with fountains, pools, and a waterfall – form a peaceful oasis. The environment is perfect for a quiet escape, whether you are staying for the night at one of the elegantly decorated residential spa rooms, or are in it just for a few hours of day spa treatment – both will transport you to another state of mind.

Treatment room

Upon entering the soothingly scented treatment room, a sense of relaxation settles. The hustle and bustle of Hong Kong? Out of sight, out of mind.

Treatment room

Each day spa treatment room comes with a giant dressing room area.

And a shower room, with June Jacobs toiletries.

I love the bathrobe at Plateau Spa, the same ones you can find in the rooms of Grand Hyatt Hong Kong. They fit snuggly to your body, so soft, so fluffy, so warm. I’d like to bring one home, please.

After showering and changing, sip on a cup of freshly brewed herb tea.

Or a glass of Acqua Panna.

I was then offered a selection of aromatherapy massage balms, from which I chose DETOX, a delightful blend of Lemongrass, Rosemary, Geranium, Sandalwood, Grapefruit, Basil and Clary Sage.

I scheduled to have the 90-minute Plateau Massage (1,380 HKD), a treatment that relieves tired muscles and soothes the mind with a combination of Shiatsu (Japanese), Thai, and Swedish massage techniques and essential oils. My therapist started the treatment by placing a hot towel over my feet, carefully adjusting the temperature to fit my preference. Then commenced the 90-minute massage session, and I barely remembered anything other than the soothing strokes, the warmly heated bed, the silky massage balm…It was a blur, but it was certainly a most blissful blur.

Heated bed, and hello there fishy

After the massage, a fruit cup to finish.

It was too cold on the day of my visit, but the outdoor pool would be enticing on a hot summer day, not to mention the steam room with harbor view. Plateau Spa is the perfect spot for a rejuvenating retreat, and whether you are living in Hong Kong or just visiting for the weekend, why not pamper yourself with a Plateau Massage? Stay the night if you have the time.
