During the six-step facial, a skilled technician cleanses, exfoliates, and performs optional extractions.

It's shaped like a cupcake, smells like strawberry shortcake, and even has a dusting of sugar. But you can't eat it, because it's a soap. Cleansing confections such as these are available at Elemental Spa's beauty emporium, where hundreds of bath and body products tempt clients as they arrive for beautifying spa services. The spa's team of experienced aestheticians deliver manicures and pedicures with China Glaze colours, and experienced massage therapists enact tension-erasing massages. Spa denizens can recline in mocha-coloured treatment rooms to be pampered before relaxing in the steam shower with a rainwater head or in the adjoining candlelit jacuzzi. Outside, a colour-changing bubble wall and speakers emanating the sound of whales meditating lead clients to the expansive beauty boutique, where fizzing bath bombs, shea-butter-enriched soaps, and hydrating lotions take on more than 120 scents.
