Pamper Potential

Bordering one of Asia oldest rainforests, Brunei five-star Empire Hotel & Country Club has introduced some of the region most exotic spa treatments. Chocolate, native herbs, essential oils and jungle spices are on an eclectic menu of  jamu traditional medicine ingredients incorporated by therapists trained according to ancient Indonesian tradition in Bali, Bintan, Batam and Jakarta. New offerings include the sumptuous traditional Javanese health and beauty ritual lulur, which has been used by brides-to-be of Royal families for centuries. Applied daily for 40 days prior to nuptials, it is designed to cleanse, smooth, soften, and rejuvenate skin. Another exotic treatment is the Tropical Body Rub of sea salt, coconut flakes serving as extra fibre to remove excess estrogens, soybean oil, orange essential oil and pineapple fragrance as a smoothing anti-inflammatory to dissolve abnormal tissues.

Perfect for a spa weekend away, Brunei is only three hours flight time from Hong Kong. www.theempirehotel.com
