Guests arriving to The Raven Spa may find themselves feeling like they've traveled a thousand miles away from their everyday cares. The aesthetic is both spiritual and indulgent, with stone statues that stand sentinel beside a plush purple couch and lush, sun-drenched drapes and glistening chandeliers holding court over an eastern-inspired communal massage chamber. A colorful patio overflowing with exotic flowers welcomes visitors to sit and soak in sunlight streaming between red and white umbrellas, creating a peaceful oasis for quiet reading or self-reflection. "Whoever comes here feels like it's their own," a front desk manager told LX TV's 1st Look, "Our whole goal is to take you away from whatever's out there."
The spa's international decor also mirrors its diverse menu of services, which includes acupuncture, facials, and hammam––a traditional Turkish soak that corrals plant extracts and herbs to nourish and detoxify the body. Therapists work out imbedded muscle kinks through seven varieties of massage including traditional Thai massage, which combines rhythmic kneads with yoga-like stretches and Hawaiian lomi lomi massage, which often sees practitioners using their elbows to nudge tension until it gets the hint and leaves.

At Strada Salon & Day Spa, expert stylists trim, color, and style hair in the main salon. In the spa, technicians ease muscular aches with 10 varieties of massage, such as Swedish, aromatherapy, and lymphatic drainage. A team of aestheticians rejuvenates complexions with facials, treats nails to manicures and pedicures, and whitens teeth with 45-minute Theraglo treatments. Meanwhile, double-board-certified Dr. Gul A. Zikria oversees Strada's med-spa wing, where certified physician's assistants help him polish up external beauty with Botox, fat grafts, laser hair removal, and other medical treatments.
The scents of eucalyptus, lavender, and sandalwood that linger in the air at The I Spa can be traced back to an essential-oil blending bar, where clients can customize their own relaxing fragrances. These fragrances eventually make their way into massages that cater to individual aches and pains with techniques drawn from 10 distinct modalities.
“Customization” seems to be the principle that unites and guides every treatment that takes place at The I Spa. This is evident not only in the massages, but in the skin analysis that precedes each facial, allowing the spa’s aestheticians to craft unique blends of products from Jan Marini and Eve Taylor.
Regardless of the treatment, it’s not difficult to relax amidst the spa’s tile walls, gauzy curtains, and tropical flowers. Each treatment room is equipped with a vacant iPod dock that allows clients to play their own self-recorded impersonations of Phil Collins cooing like a pigeon.
