Spa Profile: The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Rancho Mirage
The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Rancho Mirage is set on a beautiful hillside and draws from the natural healing powers of the desert. It incorporates stone, wood and other natural elements into its decor, and indigenous herbs and plants into its treatments. It is located at The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage, a luxury hotel in California’s Palm Springs Valley that offers world-class dining, upscale amenities and event spaces, and more.
The Spa’s holistic approach to wellness includes massage, facial and body therapies, in addition to yoga and meditation spaces, plunge pools, and a full-service salon. Guests can enjoy private terraces with stunning Palm Springs valley views from one of the many treatment rooms for the ultimate desert spa getaway. Spa Director Shelly-Anne gives us a look inside the gorgeous spa:
Why You’ll Love It: Guests love the tranquil desert-hillside setting and the holistic treatments inspired from local indigenous herbs and plants.
Key Features: Amenities include access to locker rooms, steam room, dry sauna, whirlpools and relaxation lounges as well as aromatherapy showers, flowering tea, and a cold plunge (on men’s side). The facility also includes a co-ed relaxation area with a Jacuzzi, which is very different from most spas.
Bonus: Guests are served a complimentary glass of champagne post-treatment.
Spa Snacks: Date Almond Confection Rolls and flowering white tea infused with blueberry. All guests are served complimentary champagne after their treatments. And if they are celebrating a special occasion, a Ritz-Carlton Rubber duck is theirs to take home.
Splurge Treatment: Spirit of the Mountains. It includes exfoliation, warm stone massage, a detoxifying wrap, and a scalp treatment. This treatment provides balance through the use of desert herbs and mineral salts, and is designed to cleanse, calm and soothe the body and mind.
Insider’s Favorite: Spirit of the Mountains or Date Scrub put you in a state of pure relaxation.
Featured Brands: Body Bliss, Eminence, ESPA, and Natura Bisse.
