New Signature Services at the Ritz-Carlton Spa, Jamaica


The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Rose Hall has combined regional influences and local flavors to create signature services and specialty treatments where the å‘Land of Wood and Waterå’ comes to life at this indigenous Wellness Centre


Jamaica’s rich history, diverse culture and time-honored traditions are the fundamental elements behind the 8,000 sq-ft spa which now captures the lush, tropical environs of Jamaica at the Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort, Rose Hall.


From its West Indies d├ęcor to the spice-infused scents present throughout the facility, all elements of this sophisticated spa have been strategically created to capture the island’s tropical feel while utilising its vast natural resources.
   
Whilst the natural mahogany wood furnishings and soft Caribbean colours featured are reflective of the destination’s mountainous countryside side and rich vegetation, there is now a variety of specialty regional products offered in conjunction with unique signature services that include:


The Sugarcane Body Scrub - this signature treatment represents Jamaica. Delicious Jamaican sugarcane and the finest white sand are combined to create a rich foaming cream that is applied to the entire body to assist in healing while softening the skin. Moisturising cream made of papaya, mangoes, wild yams and exotic oils work to rejuvenate the tissues and induce relaxation.


The Plantation Facial - combines sugarcane and allspice, two popular native ingredients, to create a powerful glycolic (natural sugar) skin treatment.
