An Oasis in the Desert

Ras Al Khaimah is the bucolic countryside counterpart to Dubai’s bustling big city. With white-sand beaches, jagged mountains and terracotta sand filling the desert dunes, the beautiful landscape is a study in contrasts. Inspired by the surrounding otherworldly beauty, wellness journeys at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert are truly bespoke and designed to foster self-reflection, clarity of mind, and overall well-being. At the heart of it all is the spa’s exclusive Rainforest experience, which combines European hydrothermal culture with Middle Eastern bathing rituals to create a rejuvenating sanctuary in the Arabian desert.

Time-Honored Traditions

Paying homage to the beauty of the region, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Langkawi invites you to reconnect with nature and tune into the infinite abundance of the lush rainforest and the soothing energy of the sea. The signature Lulur Hammam Experience draws on centuries-old rituals once performed in the palaces of Central Java to deeply cleanse and regenerate the skin. A full body foam massage and nourishing marine mud treatment maintain healthy skin and wellbeing, while a deeply relaxing scalp treatment melts your stresses away.

The Spirit of Aloha

Kapalua is home to the six bays favored by Maui’s benevolent Chief, Pi’ilani. It is here that the people were blessed with the spirituality of the culture, an abundance of sea life, water sports and a beauty that only nature could create. Inspired by these ancient Hawaiian traditions, therapies at The Ritz-Carlton Maui, Kapalua Spa embrace indigenous plants and customs for a holistic approach to wellness. Lush gardens create a tranquil outdoor setting where guests can unwind before or after a therapy, and they infuse treatment spaces, both indoors and out, with a sense of calm.

Spa - Onsen

The Power of Water

Hidden in Japan’s northern Kanto region, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko offers a pristine haven where nature is revered. Here, your wellbeing is enhanced not only by the sublime setting but also by the extensive indoor and outdoor hot-spring facility, where cares slip away in healing geothermal waters. Days spent adventuring are capped off with a soak in a private onsen, which draws hot spring water directly from Nikko Yumoto Onsen. Known to help those recovering from nerve and joint pain, as well as combat fatigue, the spring has been a revered destination for over 1,200 years.
