asia’s very best at the asiaspa awards

611A2784[4]_sAs usual it was an amazing night of glitz, glamour and gold at the white and gold themed AsiaSpa Awards. On the pool deck of the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, sadly no one took a dip (that I saw) but it made for a luminous location. And it was great to see a few new names make it in to the list of established spas.
