One of the newest additions to the Budapest’s selection of spas, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Budapest debuted this past March. Set on the hotel’s eighth floor, the two-treatment-room spa features a glass roof that bathes spa-goers in natural sunlight, an indoor swimming pool, a Thermal Suite, and a state-of-the-art gym with 24-hour access. Capitalizing on its location, the spa entices guests with two treatments created by ESPA exclusively for the Hungarian property.
The sauna and decorative touches (below) all add to the spa's appeal.
Serenity on the Danube ($170, 1 hour 40 minutes) uses traditional European massage techniques to relieve stress and muscle tension. Designed to uplift and clear the mind and restore the body, it also includes a consultation, body and skin analysis, custom facial, and use of the spa’s Thermal Suite.
The Royal Palace Ritual ($220, 2 hours 10 minutes) is a re-energizing full-body experience involving a consultation, a salt-and-aromatic-oil exfoliation, a hot-stone massage, and time in the Thermal Suite.
“We are dedicated to creating something unique and special in our hotels around the world, and our new spa represents this approach perfectly,” says general manager Nicolas A. Kipper. “It offers a welcoming retreat from the outside world, connected by a total sensory experience. We believe that this combination will make it an attractive spot for all who would like to experience the ultimate spa moment.”
