Inner peace begins with external tranquility at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Kyoto. Here, a bubbling waterfall complements seven treatment rooms, including one spa suite, where modern Japanese design evokes a serene atmosphere.
Unwind within the sleek relaxation room as you sip Matcha green tea. Or let your cares melt away in the 20-meter swimming pool, the steam room or the dry sauna.
At this Kyoto day spa, restoration follows with a curated menu of treatments that celebrate local traditions. The signature Ryokucha Serenity Ritual, for example, incorporates antioxidant-rich green tea leaves from the city’s Uji region in its body, foot and scalp massage. The Kyoto Bamboo Ritual, meanwhile, utilizes heated bamboo stalks and warm oil to improve flexibility.
The Spa complements these regional influences with luxury ESPA products, which are crafted with the finest botanical and marine ingredients.
