Aman Spa at the Connaught
One of the big attractions of a stay at the Connaught is its Aman spa, which is small but knowledgeably formed. This is a splash-out kind of place for special pampering occasions. The service is on a par with some of the best spas in Asia and it offers expert 2.5-hour spa 'experiences' for absolute indulgence.
