A volcanically active nation, Japan’s natural hot springs have been cherished for their medicinal virtues for centuries. More colloquially, the word onsen is often used to describe the large wooden tubs used for ritualistic bathing at hot spring ryokans – bed and breakfasts but without the surly hosts and the dated décor.
We’re sure you’ll come up with your own…bathing rituals, at Cabana, which has opened atop The Pulse in Repulse Bay. Catering to Hong Kong’s fickle seasonality, Cabana is part beach club and part champagne-laced onsen. Boasting outdoor, water-facing hot tubs - ideal settings for you, your wing man and a bevy of new-found femme du jours to escape the winter chill – and sun lounges and shaded cabanas for the summer months, Cabana brings all the best elements to the party; there is free flow G. H. Mumm Champagne packages, scantily clad lovelies, resident DJs and BBQ buffets to feed an army. When it’s hot you can cool off and when it’s chilly, well, experts say close contact is the best way to maintain warmth.
And who are we to argue with that?
