Wellness Experiences
The Ritz-Carlton Spa´s wellness experience

Water Circuit

Inspired by the baths and steam rooms of Ancient Rome, our water circuit allows you to experience a variety of extreme hot and cold temperatures, helping to eliminate toxins and revitalize the immune system. The Ritz-Carlton Spa Wellness Experience includes a Turkish-style herbal steam bath, which can be flavored using essential oils with wonderfully delicate fragrances.

African Sauna

World of Showers

The “World of Showers” stimulates the senses by exposing the body to contrasting water experiences, from tropical rain or a hot shower with lateral jets – which massage different areas of the back and torso – to a Finnish shower that offers an invigorating blast of cold water. The cold cabin allows guests to cool down with refreshing Arctic rain between sessions in the sauna or Hammam.
