We list 6 other reasons why you should visit the Ritz-Carlton Spa this month.
1. The Ritz-Carlton is the epitome of luxury. As is its spa.
Designed by Pritzker prize-winning architect Kevin Roche, the five-star hotel epitomises modern luxury that promises an unparalleled stay experience. It is the same too at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, which features premium La Mer facials, and several signature spa experiences. Leaving will be the only problem you will find.
2. The Ritz-Carlton Spa is the first hotel in Asia-Pacific to partner with La Mer.
This means guests will enjoy a host of pampering La Mer facials and treatments. And that includes indulging in the benefits of the brand’s legendary Miracle Broth created by physicist Max Huber from nutrient-rich sea kelp and other natural ingredients. Exclusive to The Ritz-Carlton Spa, the Miracle Broth Facial, which was developed by celebrity aesthetician Joanna Czech, uses no less than 13 La Mer products, including Micellar Water, Illuminating Eye Gel, Miracle Broth, Crème de La Mer and Soft Cream. The luxurious treatment aims to reenergise, nurture and deeply hydrate the skin for a more youthful appearance.
3. Enjoy soothing live cello music while receiving a massage.
Talk about a pampering good time. Guests who choose the Cello Concerto treatment — one of the spa’s three signature experiences — indulge in a 60-minute body massage that is synchronised with “live” classical music played by a cellist in The Ritz-Carlton Spa Suite. The session also includes a complimentary 30-minute bath experience and requires a 48-hour advanced reservation.
4. Combine your love your for gems with a rejuvenating massage.
Not just coveted in the world of jewellery-making, lapis lazuli stones take centre stage in the spa’s Hot Lapis Stone Massage. A therapeutic treatment that uses warm lapis lazuli stones, the 60- to 90-minute moderate to deep pressure massage soothes tired aching muscles to leave you feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated. The blue semi-precious gems are said to strengthen the neck and vocal chords, aid in the balanced functionality of thyroid glands, and enhances the mental ability.
5. You can learn more about the art of massage.
Apart from receiving a wonderful massage, you’ll also be able to take something home with you — knowledge. Sign up for a Spa Masterclass to learn more about the holistic art of massage which you can then perform on a loved one. Begin your educational journey by choosing between three-, six- and nine-hour sessions with their experienced therapists. Additionally, The Ritz-Carlton Spa comprises a host of facilities such as 10 treatment rooms (including The Ritz-Carlton Spa Suite for couples), a mineral pool, hydro-jet Jacuzzis, sauna and steam rooms, as well as the Le Salon Rose which provides hair, nail and make-up services.
