Retreat to The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles for an Urban Spa Getaway



If you’re an urban warrior seeking a luxury pampering experience, The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles’ spa is a great escape from the daily grind. Downtown is a Mecca of excitement, especially now that LA Live/Staples Center is the new hub, and sitting in the heart of all the activities is the chic Ritz spa.

Aligning with current wellness trends that use natural resources, Spa Director Kory Keith shared that their menu will offer many local ingredients. “Guests are looking for more culturally-grounded, indigenous experiences with an increased interest on where and how products are sourced, while still seeking to capture the glamour and pampering of a Hollywood lifestyle.”


Here are some of the new offerings:

Champagne & Shimmer – A revamping of the spa’s signature treatment inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Era, now uses a fully organic product line that incorporates seeds of locally-harvested grapes to exfoliate the skin before a final dusting of 24-karat gold shimmering powder.

Marula Ritual – A new, multiphase treatment utilizing African Botanicals from a Santa Monica-based wellness line that was shaped to capture the exceptional beauty and pure floral wealth of Southern Africa.

Garden to Glamorous – Seasonal treatments that embody the farm-to-table philosophy of using freshly harvested, natural ingredients, many sourced from the hotel rooftop garden.

Natural ingredients that are sourced from the hotel rooftop garden is definitely a noteworthy trend, and is going to be hot in the coming years. People are more and more concerned with the quality of the ingredients, both inside and out, not just with the food they eat, but what they put on their bodies. After all, your skin is the largest organ of the body and it drinks in the ingredients you put on the outside.

The Aroma Journey Massage as well as the Cloud Nine Massage are results-oriented treatments to soothe your body, mind and spirit. If you’re seeking something that is regenerating and revitalizing, the Vital Rejuvenation and Slim Wrap will leave you feeling lighter, eliminating toxins and producing a noticeable slimming effect.


The 8,000-square-foot spa has something for everyone, with impressive head-to-toe service and a warm, friendly atmosphere. The Red Carpet Ready package makes guests feel like a star and includes hair and makeup while just hanging out in the co-ed sanctuary with shagadelic d├ęcor will make you feel like you’re on a movie set. Dreaming and chic, the atmosphere whisks you away into an alternate universe with electric loungers that adjust your body while you nibble on snacks.

After your treatments, you can also watch video screens that stream beautiful shots of tropical paradise. This is a memorable virtual-reality experience, so give yourself the gift of time and do not rush through your post treatment bliss. If you do the detox wrap, it is best to drink your fill of pure water to replenish your body. There is also a private men’s and women’s lounge to do some deep meditation and resting pre-and-post treatment. The water therapy includes a eucalyptus steam room and cold plunge showers, so make sure you take the extra time to indulge in all the five star amenities.
