$59 for a 75-Minute Brazilian Rainforest Body Wrap or a 90-Minute Ultimate Facial ($130 Value)
During Brazilian Rainforest body wraps, aestheticians clear away dead skin cells with a mandarin-orange body polish, then cocoon clients in a serum rich in propolis, a resinous material derived from the forests of Brazil. The formula's antioxidants refresh pores before a noni gel firms the skin and scalp treatments calm minds. Finally, olive oil and warm coconut milk moisturize physiques. This service is not recommended for guests allergic to bee products.
Alternatively, ultimate facials commence with exfoliating microdermabrasion. Then, gemstone masks tighten the skin and combat fine lines, and hydrating mineral masks revitalize complexions.
Zen Day Spa
Mixing beauty and business comes as naturally to Trang Warden as it does to any dealer of fine art. Her father was a man of great entrepreneurial spirit, and her mother was the owner of a San Francisco salon, giving Trang the seeds of two complementary passions. After earning her business degree and gaining a job at a Fortune 500 company, she still worked weekends at a spa with her sister, honing a talent she’d discovered with a part-time manicurist position at age 17. Today, she continues to blend commerce with cosmetic savvy—though now in one place: Zen Day Spa.
At the wheel of her beauty haven, Trang pampers hands, feet, and faces with an extensive treatment menu that relies on botanically sourced products from brands such as Epicuren, Murad, and Yonka-Paris. Tropical scents waft from mani-pedi stations, where toes soak in a signature jelly bath sprinkled with rose petals and nail technicians massage limbs with a papaya-pineapple scrub. Other body therapies incorporate volcanic clay and propolis mined from plants and flowers by bees wearing hardhats in Brazilian rainforests.
