The Post Oak Hotel (Houston, TX) recently introduced The Spa, a 20,000-square-foot urban oasis complete with seven treatment rooms, including a couples suite with an en-suite bathtub and shower; tranquility pools with body-contouring hot-stone daybeds; aromatherapy-infused steam rooms, high-temperature and low-humidity saunas; multi-sensory thermal showers; a Technogym fitness center; and tranquil lounges with zero-gravity chairs.
The spa has partnered with Cinq Mōndes, the French pioneer in spa rituals and treatments cultivated from unspoiled regions around the world. Therapists will undergo an intensive eight-week training to learn the ancient traditions. Exclusive to the spa is the Rituals of Five Worlds ($420, 2 hours), a signature treatment featuring a warmed steam poultice massage and gentle body stretching combined with a medicinal Javanese fusion of bergamot, ginger, and lemongrass to release muscle tension. It also involves a therapist performing cranial acupressure while another performs foot reflexology.
“I have traveled the world seeing the most beautiful spas with the finest amenities,” says owner Tilman Fertitta. “Houston deserves a unique, first-class spa, and I was inspired to bring one to my Post Oak Hotel.”
