Man Seeks Solace


Hong Kong is notorious for its fast-paced and stressful lifestyle, which gives us gents every reason to sneak over to Macau for a spot of he-pampering. From anti-aging facials that make you look as young as you feel to aromatic body massages conducted by a bevy of well-trained beauties, here’s our favourite spa treatments in the Vegas of the East.



Banyan Tree Macau


Want to have the kind of smooth face strange women in the street can’t resist grabbing and licking? Try the Fire Facial offered at the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa Macau, which draws on Asian traditions that date back centuries. As powerful as it sounds, the Fire Facial, priced from MOP1,360 (US$167), includes a 90-minute treatment which actually helps purify your lady catcher while restoring its equilibrium, as well as a 30-minute refreshment and relaxation session (of how the mind wanders). Designed especially for oily skin, the treatment features the use of a purifying mask, which can deeply cleanse and reduce impurities and facial shine, leaving you a radiant and healthy complexion that’s guaranteed to turn heads.





Mandarin Oriental Macau


Those likely lads looking for a holistic indulgence won’t regret the four-hour Gentlemen’s Retreat at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Macau, which boasts the use of natural body and face care products by UK-based Aromatherapy Associates. Designed to work on muscle movement and flexibility as well as relieving built-up tension, the Gentlemen’s Retreat encompasses a choice of body massages, ranging from the signature Oriental Essence, which centres on all stress areas of the body, to therapeutic, aromatherapy and traditional Thai. There’s time for a customised facial and a foot treatment followed by a spot of spa cuisine. Priced at MOP3,980 (US$488) on weekdays and MOP4,280 (US$524) on weekends.





St. Regis Macau, Cotai Central


Whether you play sports for pleasure or as part of your cheese grater regime, skip the muscle aches that can affect your performances at the The Iridium Spa at the brand spanking new St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central. The Fitness Body Care Program can ease your pain and restore your muscles to their optimal condition. Starting off with a signature tea service and soothing foot ritual, the two-hour-and-50-minute program includes a body scrub and a therapeutic massage, which focuses on removing “exercise-related” toxins from your muscles and relieving tension through specific stretches we don’t recommend you do alone. Priced from MOP2,200 (US$270).





Studio City Macau


At Zensa Spa at Studio City Macau, you can find a wide selection of result-oriented spa journeys for modern men, dedicated to stimulating your chakras and purifying your mind and body (well, at least attempting to). Try the 60 or 90 minutes Aromatic Sensation treatment, which ensures your body can receive the attention it so rightly deserves; performed by a small army of experienced therapists – the equivalent of wellness ninjas – this nurturing massage blends a variety of aromatic oils with personalized massage techniques to ease muscle tension, stimulate circulation and restore flexibility. When the massage is over, you can even take home a small bottle of essence oil for those late night recruitment drives. Priced from MOP980 (US$120).





Wynn Macau


We all like to look our best, especially as we grow a little longer in the… tooth. Wynn Macau has partnered with luxury skincare brand Hommage to offer an anti-aging treatment for men at The Spa at Encore. Dedicated to reviving and rejuvenating tired skin, the 60 or 90 minutes Age Defense Facial Treatment begins with a deep cleansing facial with Hommage cleansers “Purify” or “Balance”, followed by an exfoliation with Black Diamond Exfoliant “Reveal”. A well-trained therapist will then give you an upper body, neck and shoulder massage while your face is regains its youthfulness under a revitalizing mask. Priced from MOP1,200 (US$147).
