SPA-GOERS JOURNEY TO EXOTIC LOCALES WITH NEW SPA RITUALS FROM SPA L’AUBERGE
As part of its new spa menu launch, Spa L’Auberge at L’Auberge Del Mar, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, has debuted a series of luxurious Spa Rituals inspired by healing practices from around the world. Invoking the cultures and traditions of faraway places, the Spa Rituals take guests on a sensual journey of each featured destination through results-oriented, full-body pampering.
“Our Spa Rituals offer the ultimate in a spa experience, nurturing the body at all levels,” said Leah Strohecker. “Through these journeys, guests get to discover another world while nestled in the seaside cocoon of our Southern California coastal location.”
The featured Spa Rituals currently include the Hamman Ritual, Japan Ritual and Moroccanoil Head to Toe. Each ritual includes a specialty body polish, nourishing body wrap and healing massage.
Inspired by the practices of a Hamman bath house, this treatment begins with a vigorous lemon coffee exfoliation followed by a detoxifying rhassoul clay wrap and luxurious scalp massage. Guests sink into a warming therapeutic full body massage with a healing blend of cardamom, sandalwood, sweet orange and jasmine, followed by a deeply moisturizing tangerine and fig butter. The body is left rejuvenated and limber, drenched in scent and moisture. The treatment is offered in 80 minutes for $185 or 110 minutes for $250.
The Japan Ritual seeks to renew and rebalance through the art of caring for the body as perfected in Japan. The treatment begins with a gentle exfoliant using a bamboo ginger-grass scrub, before the skin is softened with cherry rice blossoms. A luxurious massage with wild lime and plum blossoms precedes a gentle wrap to seal in the healing. Therapists use simple movements based on Japanese Meridian massage while blending layers of exceptional ingredients and pure scents deeply into the skin. Guests emerge feeling purified and energized, with skin that is softened and delicately scented. The treatment is offered in 80 minutes for $185 or 110 minutes for $250.
Moroccanoil Head to Toe
110 min $250
This luxurious treatment transports spa-goers to Morocco through the healing power of Argan oil. Rich in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants, Argan oil helps to nourish, hydrate and improve skin tone and texture. The Moroccanoil ritual begins with a full body exfoliation using a luxurious body buff. Next, guests relax deeply with a hot stone massage that penetrates an intensive moisturizing gel into the pores to nourish and improve skin tone and texture. A gentle wrap, plus a head and scalp treatment using a restorative hair mask, leaves spa goers rejuvenated and deeply hydrated from head to toe. The treatment is 110 minutes and is priced at $250.
Spa L’Auberge’s new menu offers a complete range of massages, facials and body treatments, as well as waxing and nail services. The new menu focuses on results-oriented, natural treatments while continuing to draw inspiration from the hotel’s oceanfront location. A major highlight of the new menu is botanical and seaweed-based skin treatments that utilize the new Ocean Rescue spa line and offer clinical results.
