In general, when traveling a long distance, I attempt to arrive a day early so I have time to rejuvenate. And my first goal checking into The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg was no different – I promptly made a spa appointment for their signature treatment the following morning and set off to enjoy a high tea.
In the morning when arriving at the peaceful, solitude of The Ritz-Carlton Spa, the relaxing atmosphere was refreshing and relaxing. Complete with a well-equipped modern workout facility overlooking a view of the docks and canal, and one of the spa’s most famous aspects, its floating pool in the harbor basin (the floating pool maintains a constant temperature of 29 C/84F.)
The spa offers two steam rooms and two saunas, separated by gender. After a good steam, I went on to my treatment (and highlight of my visit!) —“Renew Rose Anti-Aging Body Ritual,”(115Euro) for 90 minutes of delight.
My therapist started with a fine regenerating body polish, during which she dry brushed my entire body. A mud packaging followed, and as the mud dried, I enjoyed an intense foot massage—sheer heaven. After rinsing free the mud mask, I returned to the massage table, for a full body massage with pure rose jasmine oil. Jasmine is known for calming your skin and pores before the Collagen-rebuilding Rose Plus Anti-Aging body cream is applied.
Before I left, I learned about The Organic Pharmacy products used. They are exceptional. The spa offers massages, body treatments, and facials. So, you are able to schedule whatever you desire. Not all spas offer a four hands massage. Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg Spa does, and I know for a fact, this treatment is delightful (60 Min / 136 Euro; 90 Min / 188 Euro), and a massage you will never forget.
Another very important aspect focuses on therapists. They enjoy the facility so much that its turnover is minimal. Most have been there since the very beginning. This provides continuity of teamwork, which was evident in my treatment. This is a spa that I felt offers exceptional services for a fair charge.
I walked away, knowing I had achieved my goal of being alert and ready to start my whirlwind schedule that afternoon.
