With a brand name synonymous for exceptional levels of service and care, The Ritz-Carlton has now extended its talent for crafting tasteful and personalized journeys into the realm of spas. A new concept for The Ritz-Carlton Spa is being implemented around the world beginning with 20 hotels and resorts that include New Orleans, Fort Lauderdale, Amelia Island, Moscow, Vienna, Cairo and Budapest. Tailored experiences that artfully integrate individual guest needs into treatments will be anchored in local culture, employing natural and organic solutions.
“The Ritz-Carlton Spa concept is designed to extend even more of the unique and personal opportunities for wellness and indigenous experiences that our guests and global travelers seek,” stated Hervé Humler, President and Chief Operating Officer, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. A selection of the artful moments brought to life can be seen on this newly released piece of film.Guests in Europe and the Middle East were among the first to experience the newly launched concept at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre. Drawing on the quintessential Dubai experience, The Desert Reviver treatment takes inspiration from the city’s desert landscape and climate. A stimulating sand-based exfoliation is followed by a hot-stone massage that evokes Dubai’s sunny climes. The journey comes to a close with a cooling ritual that brings to mind a dip in the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf.
Treatments at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain are steeped in Middle Eastern traditions. Using regional ingredients such as Argan, Rose and Dead Sea salts, the spa pays homage to the sands of the East Arabian Peninsula, “the land where the sun rises” and the mystical, rugged ranges of North West Africa, “the land where the sun sets”, to create a selection of Arabian rituals that hark back to ancient beauty rituals and natural methods. Her Secret Sanctuary, features a series of age-old traditions, including the rose steam bath and black olive and lavender soap cleanse, to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and nourish the body whilst easing the mind. For a treatment that brings the sheen back to the skin, On The Banks of the Dead Sea, harnesses the highly re-mineralizing and detoxifying properties of Dead Sea salts to repair and restore.
