The wellness wizards at Le Petite Retreat day spa melt stresses and oust toxins with expert services in a resort-style atmosphere, which has garnered celebration from such noteworthy publications as Cosmopolitan and Vogue magazines. During 50-minute jade-stone massages for one or two, stress soothers apply pressure to troubled muscles with a combination of Swedish strokes, deep-tissue techniques, and smooth stones of varying temperatures, which relax tense tissue, ease inflammation, and turn lumps of body coal into diamonds. To keep endorphins oozing long after treatments conclude, each session finishes by kneading human posteriors with a variety of shiatsu and Thai massage techniques, shown to leave deeper, longer-lasting relief. Next, fortuitous feet go for reforming swims in impurity-ousting ionic footbaths. By harnessing positive and negative currents to stimulate the lymphatic system, the tarsal tub works to send toxins and daily stressors out of the pores and into the water without turning toes into ion-charged magnets. For an extra $50, couples can round out their relaxation with a 20-minute champagne bath.
In an indoor-outdoor space designed by a feng shui master and blessed by Tibetan monks, verdant palm fronds, eye-catching orchids, and elegant fountains make services feel more tropical than a cruise over the rainforest canopy in a toucan’s talons. A complimentary selection of organic fruits, purified fruit water, and natural herbal teas ensure jealous tongues don't dry out during treatments, and comfy robes, cushiony slippers, and soothing showers complete the therapeutic experience.
Appointments should be booked well in advance of the desired date.
