“the fast and the furious...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

Asia Spa Zurich seems to be out for urban middleclass power-relaxers and sets the standards of facilities and communication accordingly. The concept for the HAMAM of this Beauty temple, however, does not live up to any known standards with regard to the oriental bathing ritual.
- you are dragged and dropped to another room any few minutes by the staff -- ways too little time allowed for only starting to relax.
- very unfriendly staff with poor communication skills.
- relaxation area after the hamam does not even deserve that name. -- too small and only uncomfortable little chairs.
- we recommend that after the hamam you better hurry up to pay before getting dressed and drying your hair or you will be charged for every minute in the changing room... Outrageous...

-- we recommend the Hamam Münstergasse if you really need a break !

“Only about the massage - in a word, overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Asia Spa touts itself as a luxury spa "over the roofs of Zürich". Fair enough - it does overlook part of the giant SihlCity shopping center and a bit of the A3 highway. As for luxury, well the prices are definitely up there. I've only experienced the massage packages, either as a gift card or as an occasional splurge. Let's just say that CHF 78.- for a 25-minute massage is a total rip-off, no matter how many incense sticks, free cups of jasmine green tea and "relaxing" New Age music are provided. I'd say the quality of the massages have varied wildly. From 3/10 to 8/10 over some 5 or 6 times I've been there is too irregular. I mean the atmosphere there is OK and all, but there is way too much attention given to making your average Crédit Suisse banker or bored housewife the feeling that they're "being taken care of individually". When actually... it's. Just. Another. Spa. Only more expensive... Now I can't judge of the gym or the saunas or any of the other offers, but as far as the massages are concerned, you can give it a try and be lucky, or feel ripped off and disappointed.
