New Sense of Touch at Repulse Bay



Sense of Touch is one of our favourite spa chains in Hong Kong - consistency, fantastic service and reasonable prices are their hallmark, and the reason we go back again and again for their treatments (I'm a huge advocate of their waxing in particular!). When we heard they were opening a new location in Repulse Bay we were excited - we love heading out of Central for our pampering as it's a great way to relax.

The Sense of Touch in Repulse Bay has more of a day spa feel than their other locations due to the garden area. You feel that you could relax before or after your treatment with a cup of tea under the pagoda and let your troubles drift away... The treatment rooms are all beautifully decorated with fabulous wallpapers and each one is named after a spice. Our favourite is the couples room which comes fitted with an extra-large shower so that you can get in and wash the body scrub off your partner - oo-er! The treatment you want to book if you want to make use of this room is the "Love Is a Many Splendoured Thing" package, which includes the aforementioned scrub, a massage and a body treatment for two. This package costs $2980 for 120 minutes.

We had wondered in advance of checking out the new location how it would measure up against another Southside fave, "The Retreat". We think there's definitely room for two such heavy-hitters in the same area, especially as their positioning and vibes are so different. The Retreat is a more new-age-leaning with white futuristic decor, eco-cafe and innovative offerings, while the Sense of Touch is a sumptuous, cosy and glamorous cocoon against the outside world. The other great thing about the new Sense of Touch also is that as it is located in the Repulse Bay Arcade, you can pop in before or after doing your shopping, or grab a book from the Dymock's just across the street to read while you're having your pedicure done!

We'll definitely be making time for a lovely trip down South to enjoy more from the Sense of Touch team - the "Love Is a Many Splendoured Thing" package just begs to be tried out for a special Valentines treat!
