I’m not much of a camping enthusiast, but I just read about a tented experience that sounds pretty glam. ESPA recently opened its first tented spa at The Leela Palace Kempinski in Udaipur, India, which is known as the City of Lakes. The first branded ESPA in India, this beautiful retreat is composed of a series of traditional Rajasthan-style tents, complete with impeccably decorated interiors that are decked out with rich textiles, custom-designed furniture, and glass chandeliers. Divided into two areas, the relaxing respite gives guests the option of kicking back in any of the five single treatment-room tents situated within the Haveli Spa or the option of cozying up in a luxe Couple’s Suite or in either of the two Royal Palace Suites, each with its own pool and walled garden, which are located in the Lake Spa. In addition to private yoga and meditation, the spa will offer the Leela Udaipur Ceremonies, which combine classical European spa methods with the ancient philosophies of the native Ayurveda for indulgent experiences that are truly out of India.
Set to open December 22nd, Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve will be offering guests an exclusive hideaway in Krabi, Thailand. I was able to get a sneak peek at photos this morning during a breakfast meeting and the property looks absolutely stunning. With the Andaman Sea as a breathtaking backdrop, Phulay Bay, situated where the mountains meet the ocean, will be offering 54 elegant, spacious villas, featuring contemporary Thai decor and amenities such as private plunge pools and outdoor baths. While it may be difficult to leave the confines of the posh villas, guests will not want to miss the 11-treatment-room ESPA at Phulay Bay. Outfitted with expansive relaxation areas, a VIP treatment area with a private entrance, a vitality pool, and a café serving healthy local fare, the spa sounds like it will truly be an escape within an escape. We look forward to hearing more about it!
A good night’s sleep can be hard to come by in this day and age. Even trading in the stresses of everyday life for a relaxing getaway may not be enough to keep insomnia away. That’s why One&Only Palmilla (Los Cabos, Mexico) recently introduced the One&Only Spa Treasured Moments CD as part of its Wellness Spa Program by ESPA. Encouraging a deep restorative sleep, the CD was created in collaboration with Prescriptive Music, which provided guidance in choosing the specific sleep-inducing sound frequencies. Guests receive the complimentary CD, featuring a host of talented artists, on the first night of their stay as part of the resort’s turndown service with an invitation to check out the One&Only Spa. It’s certainly one way to lull guests asleep.
