Ritz-Carlton Spa in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles
It has that old Hollywood vibe while being in an urban area with a breathtaking view. Once you arrive at the spa you’re greeted with an off-white open lobby and tasteful, simple decor. There are multiple treatment rooms, a couple’s suite, a relaxing sanctuary (co-ed) and multiple lounges that feature some eucalyptus-infused steam rooms. There’s also a small boutique and a hair salon.
Ritz-Carlton Spa Treatment Options
You get to choose from a variety of different treatments, but the most popular options are the CBD Healing Massage, Pedicure and Facial. The healing massage begin therapy with a little drop of CBD tincture under the tongue. This is of course not necessary, but it does enhance the feeling of calmness and serenity, which helps with the ultimate goal of relaxing with a full-body massage.
The CBD Pedicure has a similar approach, letting you choose from two different CBD-infused bath bomb soaks: they have lavender and citrus. Lavender is the perfect way to clear your mind. Then pedicure itself is fairly traditional — exfoliating with CBD oil, cuticle care and nail polish.
Finally, a highly-recommended treatment is the CBD Facial, which features cleansing, a chunky mud mask (even the decolletage and shoulders get some of the prominently featured CBD oil), and a facial massage.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa offers what they call a Garden to Glamorous Seasonal Scrub, which follows that ‘farm to table’ philosophy using natural ingredients they grow from their own garden, right on the rooftop. It’s a full-body exfoliation with fragrant herbs, which they explain has restorative properties. They also offer the Crystal Clarity Collection, which cashes in on the crystal therapy trend while incorporating some Rose Quartz crystal massages.
Amenities in the Ritz-Carlton Spa
Lounges have a peaceful ambiance and offer complimentary drinks like fruit-infused water, champagne, healthy snacks and even different kinds of honey for your tea! All of this is found in co-ed or women-only lounges while you wait for your next treatment. You could also request a wine list, if that’s what you enjoy.
Ritz-Carlton Spa has three steam rooms and the added eucalyptus steam was highly relaxing. Overall, it’s a quite relaxing and enjoyable experience in an excellent spot in Downtown LA — absolutely worth the price.
