Hong Kong

OM Spa, Hong Kong International Airport

A long layover in Hong Kong is now a blessing in disguise, thanks to the opening of the OM Spa at the Regal Airport Hotel. The contemporary space is equipped with mosaic steam rooms and outdoor massage beds. Choose from more than 30 treatments, including seed scrubs and jasmine milk baths, and take a dip in the hotel’s 70-foot-long indoor and outdoor pools. regalhotel.com.


Elemis Travel Spa, Heathrow International Airport

British Airways passengers at Terminal 5 need just 15 minutes to be fully reinvigorated. London-based Elemis has partnered with British Airways at their new lounges (or, as BA calls them, “galleries”). The four signature treatments (including a scalp, hand, and foot massage, and a facial) start with a lime-infused compress and take place in a state-of-the-art heated massage chair. elemis.com.
