Designed to nourish the individual in body, mind and spirit, this immersive three-hour spa experience incorporates three rituals, each developed to cleanse, restore and re-empower. It begins with a body scrub and wrap using jade powder, calendula oil and Himalayan salts to stimulate circulation and soften the skin, followed by a deeply relaxing full-body massage to dissipate muscular tension, and ending with a soothing face ritual that leaves the skin rebalanced and radiant.
