Ritz-Carlton Hotel Group has announced the launch of a series of new spa treatments available in selected hotels around the world. Only twenty hotels in total participate in the new program. The hotelier says that these unique treatments are tailored to location of hotels and reflect local culture and traditions.
The first properties to participate in the new spa program are Ritz-Carlton hotels in Vienna, Moscow, New Orleans, Cairo, Amelia Island, Budapest and Fort Lauderdale. These hotels already offer unique treatments that may draw attention of both local guests and international travelers. The list of treatments sounds really unique. For example, the Ritz-Carlton Dubai International Financial Center offers treatment with a poetic name “Desert Reviver”. This is sand-based exfoliation followed by massage with hot stones and a cooling treatment in the end. Guests of The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota are also offered to enjoy exfoliation procedures, but at this hotel the full-body exfoliation is performed with apricot and orange oils, followed by application of orange infused cream. The Moscow Ritz-Carlton offers special massage with honey treatments, while guests of the Naples (Florida) hotel will be offered to attend “Time is the Essence” consultation. Probably, the most memorable treatment is offered at The Ritz-Carlton hotel in New Orleans, where guests are welcome to try a “Voodoo Massage”. Special voodoo music and aromas are used to create mysterious atmosphere.
