Aestheticians at The Spa at Newport Marriott perform marine and aromatherapy-inspired spa treatments within spacious facilities, whicn include private treatment rooms, a full-service salon, and a lounge overlooking the glittering marina. Eight private massage and body-treatment rooms, elegantly appointed with flowers, natural-wood accents, and singing nymphs allow for relaxing, customized services. Clients can refresh themselves with a bite from the spa menu or with complimentary access to the fitness club and its mineral lap pool.
Every element of Tranquility at Doral contributes to its status as a great place to relax. The 2,000-square-foot facility looks every bit the part of a harmonious sanctuary: it’s filled with feng shui–inspired decor, elegant plants, and Buddha statues, and even includes a lotus garden and a patio for special events. Flickering candles illuminate the center's 10 treatment rooms, where aestheticians brighten and firm dry, oily, and aging skin with a handful of facial treatments and body wraps infused with chocolate, sea algae, and black pearl. The spa also offers advanced ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation for the skin, as well as tanning sessions in a standup SunDash 252 Radius booth. To relax before or after their treatments, clients can sip a glass of house wine as a technician sings a really slow version of "Bohemian Rhapsody."
Voted Best Day Spa 2010 by Rhode Island Monthly readers, Alayne White Spa beautifies and revitalizes guests. The Multivitamin Power Peel targets the face, neck, and décolleté (low-cut areas of the neck) regions, doing away with anti-aging aspirations, and instead adding luminosity to the skin and embracing facial wrinkles like the way a child embraces a ripe watermelon.
The salon and day spa at Moderne may not be far apart physically, but each one feels like a completely different place. The bustling salon is home to a trio of stylists who boast specialties in hair design, extensions, dimensional and corrective color, and Brazilian blowouts, which leave hair straighter, sleeker, and perfect for princes’ climbing attempts. This bustling salon floor slips away as guests enter the doors to the day spa, where they’re greeted by relaxing music. There, massage therapists perform deep-tissue and hot-stone massages, and a nail technician paints fingernails and toenails. The aestheticians can also custom-blend facials, peels, and back facials for clients.
A soundtrack of "relaxation music" fills the air with hymn-like vocals or a quiet instrumental hum, over which speakers layer the sound of trickling rain. Thanks to touches like these, the calming ambiance at Balancing Touch Massage starts to soothe away patrons' stress before massages even begin.
But only when massage therapists take charge do muscles truly start to melt. The highly trained staffers attack tension and soreness with customized sessions that include Swedish and deep-tissue modalities. Additionally, they enhance pampering with organic facials and body scrubs.
