Renewed energy? Better balance? For every wish, there’s a spa treatment that fits the bill — find the one that’s right for you.
Get Back in Balance
Feeling stressed, foggy or simply out of sorts? The ancient Japanese art of reiki — which literally means “spiritually guided life force energy” — realigns the flow of energy in the body to balance physical and mental well-being, dissipating stress and enhancing mental clarity. Spa goers at Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve can try an hourlong reiki session as well as a variety of alternative healing therapies (including acupuncture and conscious breathwork), all designed to guide the flow of energy for an overall sense of peace, harmony and well-being.
Connect as a Couple
Whether you’re a pair of newlyweds or a seasoned couple leaving the kids behind, there’s no better destination for romance than Hawaii. Between rainforest hikes, lazy days of swimming and sunbathing, and nights spent stargazing, make time for a spa treatment that’s designed for two. Incorporating the long, flowing strokes of traditional Lomilomi, a couple’s massage at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Kapalua is a deeply relaxing experience that can be shared in the spa’s indoor couples suite or one of the open-air, private garden hale rooms. Pohaku wela (hot stones) may be added to further promote healing and restore balance.
Soak in Healing Waters
The onsen at The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko draws natural hot spring water direct from Nikko Yumoto Onsen, a renowned hot spring that’s been drawing solace-seekers since its discovery more than 1,200 years ago. Known to help those recovering from nerve and joint pain, as well as general fatigue, the water’s abundant metasilicic acid contains skin-rejuvenating properties to act as a natural moisturizer. Choose from indoor or open-air baths — both options allow you to take in the majestic natural environs surrounding the spa — and let the meditative sound of rippling water melt your aches and pains away.
Breathe in the Freshness of the Forest
With windows that allow you to gaze out into the piney treetops of the surrounding mountains, the spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe is the perfect place to destress and reset. Choose the Journey into the Forest treatment for the full effect — you’ll breathe in the essence of the woods though a blend of native essential oils designed to release deep stress and tension while stimulating your immune system. The treatment includes a full-body exfoliation, private soaking tub and full-body massage.
Revel in Omani Traditions
The Al Bustan Palace Spa by The Ritz-Carlton is a breathtaking wellness retreat tucked between the glittering Gulf of Oman and the rugged Al Hajjar mountains. Using ingredients from its own garden, the spa infuses Omani essences into its treatments, from garden date body scrubs to Frankincense oil massages. Try a Royal Arabian Hammam experience for the full sensory treatment, which will invigorate you from head to toe.
