When Silversea's elegant new Silver Spirit sets sail this month, guests will discover a spa experience that goes beyond the traditional pursuits of restoring inner peace and balance to offering the latest cutting-edge anti-aging beauty therapies.
"We designed The Spa aboard Silver Spirit to be the ultimate environment for relaxation and rejuvenation," said Christian Sauleau, Silversea's executive vice president of vessel operations. "It adds yet another dimension of luxury and personalized wellness options for our guests, who already enjoy an unmatched level of service and all-inclusive amenities."
Guests entering The Spa will discover a welcoming retreat from the pressures of today's hectic lifestyle. At 8,300 square feet (770 square meters), The Spa will be the largest in the Silversea fleet, featuring a beauty salon, fitness center, nine spa treatment rooms, two sauna rooms, and two steam rooms. Of special note is the debut of the ceramic-tiled Thermal Suite (pictured above), an exclusive spa area furnished with heated lounge chairs. With its connecting private Hammam—Turkish bath—Chamber, it serves as the setting for the Private Hammam Experience, one of several new treatments to be rolled out aboard Silver Spirit. In addition, an outdoor relaxation area will be open to all guests at no charge and will offer bar service so guests can enjoy a complimentary fruit smoothie, champagne or cocktail while soaking in its expansive whirlpool.
New Medi-Spa Program
Among the new spa treatments and services that will be introduced aboard Silver Spirit is a selection of physician-administered facial treatments using such popular wrinkle-reducing agents as BOTOX Cosmetic and the dermal fillers Restylane and Perlane. Guests can consult with the medi-spa physician on board to determine a personalized treatment plan. Medi-spa treatments are the perfect complement to traditional spa therapies, offering guests the added benefit of returning home looking as refreshed as they feel.
New Oriental Medicine Program
** Acupuncture Therapy: Experienced and fully accredited acupuncturists will offer programs designed to aid weight loss, relieve stress, manage pain and benefit many other physical and psychological conditions.
** Chinese Herbal Medicine Program: Almost all acupuncture programs utilize Chinese herbs. These herbs are termed "whole food" as they consist of dried bark, leaves and flowers of specific plant life that aid the body in its self-healing process.
Other spa highlights include these ALL NEW treatments:
** Private Hammam Experience: One of the most innovative treatment additions is the Private Hammam Experience, where guests can indulge with an ancient Arabian body scrub ritual performed by a therapist in their private Hammam Chamber.
** DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Scrub Bar: This fun and unique Scrub Bar Experience is a new spa feature that enables guests to choose their own exfoliating blend of scrub ingredients before they begin the DIY process with just a few easy steps to soothe sore muscles, slough away dead skin, and produce a smoother, more polished glow.
** Silversea Facial: Debuting aboard Silver Spirit, this signature Silversea Facial is designed to nourish, soothe and revitalize all skin types with its indulgent alchemy of expert touch, medicinal plants, rose quartz and a pure silver leaf mask.
** Bamboo Massage: The Spa aboard Silver Spirit also has the pleasure of introducing the Bamboo Massage, a warm, soothing massage that will awaken the senses. Imagine bamboo shoots of various sizes soaked in essential oil rolling, sliding and massaging the body's muscles.
** Thai Herbal Poultice Massage: This energizing, rhythmic massage utilizes scented herbal poultices that are heated and applied to the body at pressure points to relax the muscles and release tension.
** The Happy Couple: The Spa offers a relaxing and enjoyable opportunity for couples to reconnect in a stress-free environment. Whether it's a couples massage or customized package for two, The Spa can cater to all couples who need an escape.
