The Peninsula Hotels has announced a comprehensive spa program highlighted by the upcoming launch of new spas at The Peninsula Hong Kong and The Peninsula Bangkok.

Working with international spa consultancy ESPA, headed by Susan Harmsworth, The Peninsula spas will include treatments drawing on Eastern and Western wellness and relaxation philosophies, emphasizing a back-to-basics approach with authentic treatments delivered by trained therapists.

The first Peninsula spa by ESPA will debut at The Peninsula Hong Kong in May. The 11,000-square-foot spa will be built on two floors of the hotels’ tower and will offer sweeping views of Victoria Harbour.

The spa will feature 14 treatment rooms, including four rooms with floor-to-ceiling harbor views, two spas-within-a-spa private suites for VIPs or couples, domed hamman-style steam rooms, saunas overlooking the harbor, tea lounge and relaxation rooms.

In December, The Peninsula Bangkok will unveil a full-service resort spa built amid the lush gardens in a three-story Thai colonial-style building overlooking the Chao Praya River. The spa will feature 18 treatment rooms, including two “personal spa” VIP suites with river views and kang beds for lounging, two rooms with private gardens, four couples’ rooms with vitality pools and balconies overlooking the river, a tea lounge and relaxation rooms with river views.

Next year, The Peninsula will open its brand-new Peninsula Tokyo, overlooking the gardens of the Imperial Palace. Offering the largest hotel rooms in the city, the hotel will also feature an extensive Asian spa when it opens in September.
