An immense highlight was, during a recent luxurious resort vacation, the ESPA experience at the Ritz-Carlton Sanya, which is situated in the South China Sea. A mere ninety minutes flight toward the south of Hong Kong, Hainan Island is haled as one of the best tropical seaside resort destinations: it is famously nick-named the “Oriental Hawaii”. Taking prime position along a beautiful stretch of coast, the Ritz-Carlton Sanya is surrounded by majestic mountains, rainforests, nearby mangroves, and the endlessly long white sandy beaches of Yalong Bay.

Mindfulness restored, the initial assessment of skin type informed spa therapist Angle of the best remedy for its revival. ESPA’s treatments are based on a combination of ancient Eastern philosophies and the latest relaxation and rejuvenation techniques; natural skin-care products are designed to clarify, purify and revitalize the skin.

The gentle tunes of instrumental music, beautiful scent, and a deep sense of ritual being performed, this tailor-made men’s facial experience took centre-stage.
