New cosy Monterey spa offers holistic wellness approach

by Jane Kitchen | 15 Oct 2018

The Sanctuary Beach Resort has opened a new spa aimed at both locals and guests at the 19-acre California property. The Spa at Sanctuary offers a customised, holistic approach to wellness, and features a design palette of sand, grey and sea blue designed to stimulate relaxation.

The spa design, spearheaded by Farouki Farouki, echoes the natural scenery of the spa’s locale on the California coast. Accessed through the resort’s main Lodge, spa guests are greeted in the newly constructed spa lobby, which features a large front desk area highlighted by natural, wooden accent beams, warm custom gold light fixtures and polished concrete flooring.

The Spa at Sanctuary has three treatment rooms, and treatments centre around traditional massage and facials, as well as exclusive, custom treatments focusing on body care and total wellness.

Body Care Treatments include the Salt Wood Spa RX, a sea salt exfoliation that is designed to aid the body in releasing toxins while unveiling a healthy glow. This treatment uses a custom, seasonally inspired, farm-to-table salt blend created daily by chefs at Salt Wood Kitchen & Oysterette.

The Detox + Hydrate Body Care Treatment is a detoxifying brush exfoliation designed to support the lymph system and promote natural healing through a nutrient-rich body mask, chakra stones, anti-aging face massage and full body massage.

Inspired by the sea, the Pacific Ocean Body Care Treatment includes a basalt stone face massage, a mineral-rich seaweed body mask and full body massage.

Additional wellness services include private yoga, guided meditation, active stretching, guided nature walks, and Stillness, an experience that uses multiple therapeutic modalities to recharge spiritual energy and disconnect from life’s stress.

A curated selection of luxurious spa products is available for guests to purchase. Among these products is Privai Skincare’s Discovery Kit full of naturally inspired, botanically based skincare essentials for all skin types; the Lux Collection Therapy Spa Wrap with lavender scent and OSEA for Parachute Sleep Time Bath Salts made from Himalayan Pink Salt to soak away stress before bedtime.
