St. Regis Hotels & Resorts` new menu of in-room spa treatments, enables guests to stay in the seclusion of their room to relieve the stress and fatigue resulting from the complexity of travel today. Specifically intended for the harried traveller, the menu includes eight treatments designed to relax and restore inner balance, such as The Time Zone Equalizer, The After-Party Detox, Eye Zone Treatment and Massage, and The Aroma Journey/Balance Your Senses.
“Spending a considerable amount of time on planes and in airports, I personally understand the critical need for regaining balance and energy after travelling,” said Atef Mankarios, CEO of St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “Hotels need to constantly adapt to the changing environment. Today more than ever before, guests look to us as true caretakers, and we need to offer new ways to make their trip less stressful and more comfortable.”
To simplify the experience, the same menu and prices are offered at all St. Regis properties in North America. Guests can choose from eight spa therapies that incorporate all the senses, and turn the guest room into a serene and calming environment. Highlights of the in-room spa menu include:
Time Zone Equalizer - When body and mind are in different time zones, this body and scalp massage with reflexology utilises a blend of citrus and lavender oils to refresh and revitalise, assists in circulation and banishes the effects of jet lag. Followed by a bath prepared with a combination of herbs salts to detoxify and hydrate stressed skin. A CD of relaxing music plays during the massage and is left as a gift, as well as a bottle of water infused with vitamins and minerals.
Eye Zone Treatment/Massage - Massage with special attention to the eye area and temples and a rejuvenating scalp massage. A cooling eye pillow pack is utilised during the massage and a lavender blend is infused into the massage oil to relieve headaches and tension. A warm paraffin pack is applied to the neck area for additional tension relief. The gel pillow pack for the eyes and relaxing CD are left behind as a gift.
