Luxury and The Ritz-Carlton are synonymous. When it comes to the first All-Suite Ritz-Carlton, you know it’s going to be something very special. Located on the top floors of Galaxy Macau, a sprawling entertainment and gaming resort, The Ritz-Carlton Macau has opulence in spades. That continues inside the hotel’s ESPA day spa. Ten treatment rooms and three suites for couples are tucked into the low-lit, moody space designed to incorporate traditional Chinese and Portuguese architecture. The result is plenty of sumptuous waiting areas – hanging chairs, curved walls, dark timber four poster frames hung with sheer drapes to hide day beds and relaxation corners.
Treatments also draw influence from local culture, the Reflex Meridien Massage is inspired by traditional Chinese medicine reflexology and is focused on restoring energy flow. The Pearl River Chi whole body treatment draws on the environment, beginning with a spearmint body exfoliation, an algae body wrap and then an essential oil massage. The spa’s signature treatment is the Macau Body Smoother Ritual – a 120 minute body wrap and massage that has already won over the Hong Kong expat crowd.
