When it comes to pampering, Ritz-Carlton knows how to take care of their guests. We’ve pulled together a list of our Top Five Favorite Ritz-Carlton Spas. Let’s see which spas made the cut.

1. New Orleans

“In this small and intimate 147-room hotel, you would not expect to find a 25,000 square foot spa featuring nearly 100 services and 22 treatment rooms. Picking the services I wanted to experience from such a varied menu was daunting. However, I was fortunate to confer with spa director Daisye Sudran, who is responsible for development of most of its services.”–Maralyn Hill. Full article…

2. Sarasota, Florida

“I’ve always been intrigued by the circus.  And being that Sarasota is the winter home of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, I promised myself I wouldn’t leave until getting stepped on by an artist.  Let me clarify.  It’s a good kind of being walked on.  Soft, plump feet applying just the right amount of pressure into your back, as the artist (or in this case the massage therapist,) hangs from silk drapes and performs magic.  It’s the latest and greatest spa service called the Aerial Silk Massage being offered at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota.“–Mary Haban.

3. Wolfsburg, Germany

“Upon arriving at the peaceful, solitude of The Ritz-Carlton Spa, I enjoyed its relaxing atmosphere. The spa offered two steam rooms and two saunas, separated by a men and women’s section. I went on to my treatment and highlight of my visit—“Renew Rose Anti-Aging Body Ritual,” for 90 minutes of delight.”–Maralyn Hill.  Full article…

5. Lake Tahoe

” After a short but sweet alfresco nap, I scurried down  to the vast Spa, for a fabulous facial, while my sis hop-scotched between the outdoor lap pool, indoor sauna, steam rooms, whirlpool, and, her fave, the rain shower experience. She wouldn’t divulge the secret but simply described it as the Timothy Leary of showers.”–Janice Neider. Full article…
