The luxury isn’t just in appearances, either. Upon arrival, a friendly consultant greets each guest, handing off a plush robe, slippers, and keys to a private locker for stashing away belongings or a long workday's bad vibes. From there, guests can head into the day spa, where zen-like spa rituals aim to soothe both body and mind. For instance, licensed massage therapists can dispel stress and muscular tension with an aromatherapeutic massage before patrons sink into a cozy pedicure couch for an indulgent foot and nail treatment topped off with vegan polish. While women enjoy Jane Iredale makeup applications, men can head to the gentlemen's oasis for a facial specially tailored to freshly shaven skin. Flanked by vibrant golden walls, the hair salon welcomes both men and women to take a seat at a mahogany station, where they can admire their freshly snipped locks in a small rectangular mirror.
