Under the sage direction of Dr. Brian Young, the staff at Beauty Island Spa cultivates healthy complexions, eases aches, and whittles silhouettes with spa services for men and women. The spa’s island theme is reflected in its relaxation-inducing treatments and tropical atmosphere fostered by décor including peach-hued walls, plush white leather chairs, and palm trees inhabited by shipwrecked families. Aestheticians put their beautifying know-how to use as they administer innovative treatments such as LED therapy to help diminish the symptoms of rosacea, acne, or aging.
True to its name, Restaurant Pacific traverses the Asian continent with dishes that borrow from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and other culinary traditions. Chefs transform fresh ingredients and spices into time-honored traditional recipes but also create their own interpretations of classic flavors. The menu includes sushi and sashimi, Chinese chicken dishes with zesty seasonings, teriyaki steak and Mongolian beef, and spicy Korean and Japanese noodle soups. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available.
Natural beauty and modern med-spa technology converge at this spa and boutique situated a stone's throw from the Portland waterfront. Guests can anchor their boats and then dock themselves comfortably at the pedicure bar, where toes enjoy a refreshing dip in jade-colored basins before being softened with mandarin ginger essential oils. Leafy green walls flanked by potted palms and vases filled with tall grasses reflect the spa's preference for all-natural skincare lines, including products by Éminence Organic, while jet-black furniture and sharp track lighting hint at the cutting-edge services––including laser hair removal and pixel skin resurfacing––that await inside private treatment rooms. Still, the spa is most proud of its specialty organic treatments, including a blueberry-soy slimming wrap that aims to improve circulation and activate the lymphatic system and a champagne-mimosa sugar scrub that bids bon voyage to dead skin cells as it hydrates and tones the body.
Customer comfort is given top priority, and guests are invited to unwind pre- or posttreatment in the spa's relaxation room, where complimentary tea, wine, and water are always available. The staff also encourages clients coming to the spa from work to bring a change of clothes so they can head home afterward in their coziest sweatsuit or velour overalls.
