Time for Some Self Love

We know your idea of a detox might be sticking to spritzers during the week or perhaps replacing your martini olives with lemon twists to cut down on sodium, but sometimes we need to take things to the next level, to really flush out the toxins of urban living.

Keep it In-House

You may not know it but the history of the humble cocktail – the original mind, not frozen drinks topped with a rainforest garnish – is far less illustrious than you might imagine. In 1600s England, under King William of Orange, most people died of water-borne pathogens.

Coastal Cruising

There’s just something about summer that draws us to the water, to the coast, to the beach. We love the sand between our feet, the sun in our hair, the lack of clothing worn by the fairer sexy – it all just comes together perfectly.

Service to a Tee

As a younger gent you probably had a go at tennis from time to time – hell, you might have even been a force to reckon with. However, playing regularly in Hong Kong, with its hectic, demanding lifestyle and space shortage, can be a little tricky. And then there’s golf, the one sport where business talk and a certain level of intoxication is not only tolerated but expected. If you’re looking to brush up or learn either of these notoriously white collar sports from scratch, help is on its way.

The Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy will open in sunny Sai Kung at the end of the year, combining two world-renowned names in the games – the Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf, directed by Billy Martin, and the Bruguera Tennis Academy, directly by Bastien Liveriou. In a world first, these two competitive forces will offer players of all ages tailored programs to bring out your true (and sometimes deeply hidden) potential. The golf academy has a total of 75 hitting bays, three coaching studios, a 9-hole putting green and a 6-hole short game (your favourite, right?) as well as swing analysis and some cutting edge tech support, including the FlightScope X-2 Elite radar aid and K-vest 7 + K-Player sensors. If love and deuce is more your thing there’s seven outdoor courts and an International Federation standard indoor course for those T8 sessions, as well as Hong Kong’s first padel tennis court. After a hard match, treat yourself to a spot of sports massage, a dash of nutritional advice, or even a medical consultation if you pursued your return to stardom a little too enthusiastically.

Game on.
