Spa treatments for the manliest men

1. Cameron’s Mint at the Spa Village Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

If one too many golf swings have taken their toll on you or you’ve overdone it at the gym, Cameron’s Mint will heal your aches and pains in the most refreshing, invigorating way by getting your circulation going and boosting your energy levels. Three consecutive treatments – a stimulating mint tea bath, a mint and thyme body scrub, plus a mint muscle relief body massage – will have you fighting fit in no time.

2. Real Beer Bath at Chodovar Beer Spa, Czech Republic

It’s every beer lover’s dream come true: a bathtub full of beer that you can lazily soak in while it evens out your blood pressure and purifies your skin with a potent cocktail of Vitamin B, proteins and saccharides. This particular beer is made by the Chodovar family brewery, and froths over with active beer yeast, crushed herbs, and Il Sano mineral water. It’s heated to a comfortable 34 degrees – the only time when warm beer is welcome – but of course, you also get to sip a cool glass of natural, non-pasteurised Chodovar as you bathe.

3. Cut-Throat Razor Shave at Ruffians London, United Kingdom

The finest wet shave to end all shaves is most likely to be found in London, where some of the best barbers in the world are willing to fight it out for your custom with the sharpest razors. Ruffians’ barbers are steady of hand, delivering a terrifyingly close shave in 45 minutes with the aid of a traditional badger brush and foam, as well as its own sandalwood-scented, ionic-charged precision shave gel.   

4. The Jack Hammer at Hammer & Nails, United States

Putting the ‘man’ in ‘manicure’, Hammer & Nails is a veritable man cave in the heart of Hollywood that lets you sink into an oversized leather chair and put your feet up. The highlight of their Jack Hammer hand and foot treatment is a decadent Tennessee Whiskey & Brown Sugar Scrub to exfoliate and moisturize your limbs and digits, followed by a warming paraffin treatment and their signature hand and foot grooming techniques to get your nails in order.
