White Iris Beauty Spa (Florence)

Located a stone’s throw away from the famed Ponte Vecchio and the banks of the Arno River, White Iris Beauty Spa by Comfort Zone at Hotel Continentale (Florence) encourages guests to give themselves the gift of time. The compact subterranean spa surrounds guests with design elements of Tuscan wood, natural stone, and soothing neutral tones. In this calm space world’s away from the crowded streets above, spa-goers can select from a wide variety of treatments to fit in the busiest of touring schedules. Facials, body treatments, massages, and more incorporating Comfort Zone products are inspired by the purity of nature and pay tribute to Florentine style. New on the menu this year is the Tranquillity Pro-sleep Massage ($130, 60 minutes), which helps weary travelers adjust to a new time zone and avoid jet lag. This innovative massage focuses on three of the senses—olfactory, tactile, and hearing. It aims to bring about profound relaxation with a blend of essential oils, bespoke Tranquillity Sound, and Ayurvedic and Indonesian modalities with soft brushes. Spa-goers are sure to emerge from the spa rejuvenated and ready to explore the city of Florence and beyond.
