Featuring unique treatments within an ultra-trendy atmosphere, a day at THEhotel's sophisticated Bathhouse Spa makes you feel like a star.
Bathhouse Spa is far from traditional. Featuring everything from dark slate and suede-covered walls to trendy fixtures and funky, brightly-colored furniture, it's like being at a nightclub without the loud music. Instead, guests hear the peaceful sounds of water trickling throughout the facility.
The fitness facility features state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment, as well as plasma TVs. For the guests' convenience, bathhouse features a separate men's and women's locker room adjacent to the gym. The locker rooms come complete with vanity areas and showers.
Reminiscent of the real outdoors, the hot and cool plunges in the men's and women's areas have actual stones on the bottom. Guests can also indulge in eucalyptus steam rooms, redwood saunas and a choice of hot tubs heated at different temperatures.
Refreshments include muffins fresh fruit, nuts, tea, juice and bottled water.
Exclusively for the ladies, bathhouse features four private rooms with bathtubs. The 25-minute service offers herbal, aromatherapy and mud soaks. Women can sit back and sip tea while enjoying their bath.
The 16,000-square-foot spa houses 12 treatment rooms. Each massage room includes a private shower so guests can rinse off after a service.
One of the spa's fun features is its Scents-of-You service. Come early and fill out a questionnaire relating to your personality as well as your body, mind and soul. After your answers are logged into the computer, it calculates a unique blend of essential oils catered to your needs. This special formula can be used during your massage.
To enhance your massage even more, add the Fire and Ice stone service. Here, a spa therapist uses both warm and cool stones to enhance your experience.
Lovers of chocolate and coffee can rejoice in the Yummy Mocha Java Sculpting Treatment. After experiencing a chocolate or cappuccino sugar scrub, the service follows with an organic mocha java masque (enhanced with green teas, marine algae and aloe vera), which increases firmness in skin. Finish off with a delicious-smelling cappuccino cream, which leaves the skin soft and silky.
The crème brûlée body treatment is one of the spa's most popular services. If you find yourself obsessed with the crème brûlée delicious scent, the equally tempting crème brûlée mani-pedi is also available. As an added bonus, each pedicure station comes with its own TV and headset.
Guests can purchase the products used in their service, including sugar scrubs, salt scrubs, body washes, shampoo and conditioners. Bathhouse Spa also carries their own signature line of beauty essentials.
To get to the bathhouse, take the elevator from THEhotel's lobby to the second floor. Once you step off the elevator, you'll see oversized, geometric furniture against the walls in the spacious front lobby.
After your spa visit at the hip and modern Bathhouse Spa, you'll leave feeling relaxed and glamorous.
