WGM discovers exactly why ESPA at The Ritz-Carlton Macau is such a highly decorated venue for restoration and relaxation.

With its recent recognition at the 10th Annual SpaChina Awards as Most Attractive Spa Treatment of the Year, Espa at The Ritz-Carlton Macau is one of the most highly regarded spas in the region.

“Winning the award for Most Attractive Spa Treatment of the Year is a true honor and a testament to our committed service,” said Rauf Malik, Vice President of Operations for JW Marriot Hotel Macau and The RitzCarlton Macau. “This marks the fourth consecutive year in which our spa has been recognized and I am immensely proud that we have continued to reach new pinnacles for success in creating a luxuriously stylish setting in which our guests can relax and rejuvenate with the finest treatments and intimate personalized service.”

The Ritz-Carlton Macau has a unique partnership with luxury skin care brand Carol Joy London, a brand renowned across the globe for its technological breakouts in anti-aging. Available exclusively at The Ritz-Carlton Macau, it provides a massage-based facial that is deeply hydrating, lifting and detoxifying.

Beginning with a brightening pearl power exfoliation, this treatment rejuvenates and instantly brightens the complexion with the use of regenerating clinically proven refined golden millet oil, caviar algae and myofascial massage techniques. The treatment then proceeds to the chilled jade roller massage which will tone the skin and help product absorption. To cap off the experience, guests will be catered with a glass of complimentary champagne and caviar canapés, both to be enjoyed inside the relaxation room.

The treatment rooms reflect the unique character of Macau by infusing elements of design noted in traditional Chinese and Portuguese architecture. Staying true to its branding, the interior design of the various rooms all feature a balanced use of natural materials such as dark timber, oak and onyx and use different lighting effects to make the perfect place of sanctuary and to set the relaxing ambiance.

Signature treatments include pearl river chi. This is a nurturing treatment combining powerful marine elements to hydrate the skin and relax tension. Another is jade river. It utilizes the natural benefits of Jade to awaken the senses and brighten the skin. The reflex Meriden massage is inspired by traditional Chinese medicine to help regulate the flow of energy. Finally, the Macau body smoother ritual combines a body wrap and massage to restore equilibrium and bring deep relaxation.
