I was supposed to visit the other sauna, CE (for Central Escalator)... supposedly very well established. Until i started getting comments from readers about the Towel Club. The journalist in me smelled a story here. So i followed me lead...
their lobby and reception interiors already blew me away. WOW. and they are strict about this being 'members only'. so i had to pay the $49 membership fee and $98 entrance. membership is good for one year. (something tells me ill be back in HK this year! hehehe)
the interiors really look great. probably the best designed (and the newest) among the saunas in HK. plenty of lockers. its bigger than ABC because of the jacuzzi. i honestly felt dazed going around it because there aint no signs! the lounge (which was the 1st i discovered) looks out to the jacuzzi/shower area! that's a nice touch. you could actually check out who's in the pool while pretending to be reading or doing email (yes they have two internet stations).
common shower area for 6 pax in front of the jacuzzi. really dark wet sauna. maze had mirrors (embarrassingly, i bumped into one of them!!! i thought it was a hallway. ang dilim kaya!!!) looked very clean.
clientele - very young. it turned out that twinks get in for free on wednesdays. i really didnt see much to look at (twinks arent my type). just one caucasian. about two south asians, maybe. one was okay but quickly disappeared from view.
i was kinda disappointed because i didnt have choices. and yes, i didnt 'partake' at all. but i suppose on other days this place would be hot. the place looks really great. if only for the interiors, id recommend a visit!
