The Top 10 New Spa Treatments

From bustling cities to mountain escapes and island retreats, we’ve searched high and low to find the latest treatments just waiting for you to try (but don’t wait too long as some are just for this season and will soon be gone!).

Conrad Algarve

Conrad Fire and Ice Treatment, The Spa at Conrad Algarve
This signature treatment, performed in a brand new spa, uses locally sourced lavender, sea salt, organic oils and mud to help restore balance in the body. It begins with a foot bath and scrub, followed by a full face and body exfoliation. Ice cold stones are used to massage and stimulate pressure points, while also working deep tissue muscle and aiding lymphatic drainage. A warm mud pack is then applied to the back, before the cold stones reappear to give a firming, lifting facial. The entire experience, which lasts two hours and 15 minutes, is all about relaxation and a good old-fashioned detox.

23 Carat Gold Facial Ceremony, Dolphin Square Spa, London

23 Carat Gold Body Ceremony, Dolphin Square Spa, London
The super healing and anti-ageing powers of gold are put to the test during this opulent, two and a half hour-long treatment. It begins in the Hammam with a gold cleansing ritual to prepare the skin. The body is then treated to a full massage with oils and gold minerals, after which a luxurious 60 minute facial sees a gold and honey massage balm applied before a gold face mask, which tightens skin and acts as a natural face lift. The treatment finishes with a dusting of gold powder over the face, shoulders and arms for the perfect post-spa glow.

Bhutanese Hot Stone Bath, Uma by COMO, Paro, Bhutan
What better way to relax in the beautiful surroundings of the Paro Valley than with this traditional Bhutanese therapy in the recently opened Uma by COMO. The 90 minute treatment uses river rocks placed in hot water which crack and steam releasing key minerals that relieve deep-set aches and pains. The treatment finishes with the signature COMO Shambhala Massage, using a house blend of oils and long, calming strokes.

The Spa a Mandarin Oriental, Paris

The Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Treatment, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Paris
The capital of fashion and beauty brings you this 90 minute facial designed to smooth, firm and improve overall quality of the skin. It begins using Kabuki pencils to remove make-up before continuing with a firming Guerlain massage, which stimulates and tones the neck and décolletage. The treatment uses Guerlain’s targeted Orchidée Impériale skincare range, known for banishing the signs of ageing while leaving the skin silky smooth and ready to face the world again. The Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Treatment is available until 31 December 2012.

ESPA Cellular Renewal Enzyme Facial

Rich in natural fruit acids such as pumpkin, and AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), the peel removes dead skin cells, encourages cell regeneration and evens out pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. The following massage plumps and tones skin while relaxing and easing the mind.

The Spa by Clarins, The Residence Maldives

PURE Massage, The Spa by Clarins at The Residence Maldives
Everyone likes to be spoiled on holiday, so head to the newly opened Residence Maldives where the only Clarins spa in the archipelago is ready to brush, need and shower you with treats. Try the nourishing PURE treatment, which uses warm infused virgin coconut oil to massage the scalp and shoulders, working out knots and relieving tension. It also promises to banish headaches and leave hair with a super healthy, glossy shine.

Palace Hotel Tokyo, Swimming Pool, Evian Spa

Vitalising Signature, evian SPA TOKYO at the Palace Hotel Tokyo
The people who bring us ‘health through water’ recently opened their first spa in Japan. Harnessing this philosophy, treatments are dedicated to cleansing, purifying and restoring a natural balance. Inspired by the Japanese philosophy of Seitai, or ‘properly ordered body’, this treatment sees pressure applied to master trigger points using fingers, thumbs and elbows to intensely stimulate and improve the flow of energy throughout. A Swedish-style deep tissue massage brings the treatment to an end. The Vitalising Signature is available for either 50 or 80 mins.

Milk and Honey Wrap with Mini Facial at The Spa, Bellagio

Milk and Honey Wrap with Mini Facial at The Spa, Bellagio Las Vegas
When the chips are down or you simply need a time-out, head to the Bellagio’s spa for this relaxing seasonal treatment. Skin is exfoliated with warm milk and sugar in a Vichy Shower before being wrapped in a milk and honey mask. While the wrap works its magic, the mini facial cleanses and hydrates. The 45 minute session is available until 31 October 2012.

Spa by Cinq Mondes, Five Hotel & Spa, Cannes

Rituel Fleur de Bali Treatment, Spa by Cinq Mondes at Five Hotel & Spa, Cannes
Your summer glow may be fading but thankfully the experts at Cinq Mondes have been busy creating a new range of skin saving products to ensure a clear and bright complexion this Autumn. The refreshing 50 minute treatment uses a Phyto-Peeling gel mask that simultaneously exfoliates and smoothes to leave skin luminous and soft, while receiving a face, neck and scalp massage.

Lipoglaze Cryo-Lipo machine

Lipoglaze, USA and UK
A slightly alternative spa treatment, this ‘lunchtime liposuction’ promises visible results in just 50 minutes. The Lipoglaze Cryo-Lipo machine (pictured) removes fat cells from the body by gently heating, then rapidly freezing target areas. This causes the fat cells to crystallise and permanently destroys up to a third of fatty deposits per session. The non-invasive treatment quickly removes fat, leaves no scarring and causes no pain. Why wouldn’t you?
