The word Egypt conjures up images of Anthony and Cleopatra, kings, queens, pharaohs, sphinxes, pyramids and the treasure that lined their walls.Until February 25, 2004, experience the first exhibition of ancient art from the Egyptian national collection to tour the U.S. since Tutankhamun and Ramses, some 20 years ago.
In conjunction with the exhibit, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, New Orleans will offer authentic treatments used in the days of the ancient pharaohs and queens of Egypt. Relive the legend of Egypt`s most famous queen with Cleopatra`s Indulgence Package.
It begins with a manicure and pedicure, followed by a warm paraffin to replenish moisture into the hands and feet. Cleopatra`s Body Contour & Bath is also part of the package. This luxurious enveloping treatment or wrap draws toxins away from the body.
This is followed by an aromatherapy bath of essential oils that leaves the skin silky smooth.
Sample the Egyptian Coffee Scrub, a traditional beauty treatment that is stimulating, aromatic and refreshing. This is an excellent skin cleanser and improves circulation and skin tone.
Along the lines of the coffee scrub is the Sea Salt Body Scrub. The body is softly scrubbed with sea salt to open the pores and remove dead skin cells.
To finish the beautification process, select from the menu of services offered in the adjoining salon. Have your hair cut, colored or perhaps just have your makeup applied, which was a favorite of Cleopatra and of all the Egyptian queens.
For the pharaohs, The Ritz-Carlton Spa New Orleans offers the Royal Four Hands Massage. Two expert technicians perform a symphony of movements in synchronization over the entire body. This is truly a treatment fit for a pharaoh.
