Shiseido Spa Milan

Japanese pampering in the heart of Milan

After a long day of wandering around downtown Milan, take a time out from the glamorously buzzy fashion capital for some extra luxe rejuvenation at Shiseido Spa Milan. Make your way to the top floors of Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Excelsior Hotel Gallia, A Luxury Collection Hotel and treat yourself to a sophisticated journey of pure relaxation.

Open since May 2015, Shiseido Spa Milan is the only facility in Italy to carry the prestigious cosmetic brand’s name. Spread across two levels of the elegant hotel, the health club offers more than 10,700 square feet of relaxation for your mind, body and soul.

On the sixth floor, you can indulge in individual treatments or experience the intimacy of the Private Spa Suite, while on the seventh floor, you’ll find the majestic indoor swimming pool surrounded by peaceful relaxation zones, saunas, steam rooms and a stylish fitness area.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The Japanese virtue of omotenashi finds its home at Shiseido Spa Milan, where you are welcomed with warm hospitality and looked after with devotion.
  • Indulge in a reinvigorating swim on the top of the city. Soak up the panoramic view from the seventh floor of Excelsior Hotel Gallia while taking a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of exciting Milan.
  • Designed by Studio Marco Piva and furnished by B&B Italia, the space blends tradition and modernity by incorporating natural materials with chrome fixtures and elegant lighting effects.
  • Sip tea while relaxing in the peaceful caldarium (Roman-style steam room) and taste the delicious Hanatsubaki cookies, an exclusive perk of visiting Shiseido Spa Milan.
  • Lotus, rose and jasmine come alive in Shiseido’s velvety Ever Bloom scented body lotion. Buy a bottle to take the memory to take home with you.

Things to Know

  • Booking in advance is highly recommended. Exclusive enough to never be busy, the spa is even quieter on weekdays — reserve your spot on a Monday and you may get lucky enough to be the only one swimming.
  • Check in at the Milan spa at least 30 minutes before your treatment. It’s generally recommended to allow yourself more time before the service to experience the facilities first and then go home with freshly softened and pampered skin.
  • The best way to end your wellness journey is an aperitivo at Terrazza Gallia. Book your table around 6 p.m. and you’ll be seated in time for sunset.

The Treatments

  • Shiseido believes the secret of wellbeing lies in the balance of qi, our vital energy. Each treatment aims to realign your qi through techniques based on the stimulation of pressure points, aroma breathing and the use of oshibori, Japanese hot towels.
  • Among the most memorable treatments, the Timeless Ritual is a sophisticated combination of Shiseido’s techniques exclusively designed for Excelsior Hotel Gallia. Enjoy a back, neck and shoulder massage followed by a bespoke express facial, a hand and foot massage and an elegant makeup application or scalp massage.
  • The two-and-a-half-hour bathing ceremonies are an indulgence you won’t want to miss. Incorporating a Japanese foot bathing ritual, an exfoliation, a massage and a hydrotherapy bath, these sumptuous soaks will leave you feeling like royalty.

The Facilities

  • The Private Spa Suite, located on the sixth floor, is tailor-made for those seeking a more secluded experience. Accessible through a dedicated entrance, it features its own private Jacuzzi as well as a luxurious steam bath, dual emotional (or multisensory) showers and a sauna.
  • For those who enjoy being active, Shiseido Spa boasts a 24-hour state-of-the-art rooftop fitness center equipped with Technogym machines.
  • The latest facility being introduced to the Milan spa is the Golf Simulator. Links lovers will have the chance to virtually play their favorite sport in the comfort of Excelsior Hotel Gallia while exploring some of the most legendary and world-renowned courses, such as Old St. Andrews and Pebble Beach.
