Nestled within one of Hong Kong’s most luxurious addresses, the Island Shangri-La has launched this new wellness concept. The poetically-named sanctuary has been designed by renowned Spanish interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán to bring lush elements of nature—think: curving walls in light wood, inlaid marble floors with stunning geometric patterns and bursts of vibrant greenery dotted throughout—to the calming space.
From relaxing facials to physiotherapy, osteopathy, and more, the urban oasis promises to soothe the stresses and rigours of modern life with an extensive offering of holistic experiences and therapeutic treatments. With a total of 10 deluxe treatment rooms, you will be spoilt for choice when you check in for a relaxing treatment or two. For the couples who enjoy the treatment experience together, Yun Wellness also boasts two rooms designed especially for the purpose.
“Our new oasis in the heart of Hong Kong offers all-round well-being at every stage of life. From busy
residents looking for movement classes to postpartum mothers seeking a supportive community, our wellness practitioners and welcoming space will guide you on the path to becoming a healthier and more vibrant you,” said the centre’s wellness director Dr Tal Friedman.
I tried the 90-minute Men’s Million Dollar Facial, which promised to cleanse and heal the skin while controlling excess oil and sebum with the use of products from top Swiss skincare label Dr Burgener. In the expert hands of my treatment therapist, my dehydrated skin—from several weeks of travelling between countries with different timezones and climates—looked revitalised, glowing and felt moisturised.
Yun Wellness at the Island Shangri-La is the first to launch, and is set to roll out across the group’s other properties across the globe in due time.
