Starwood reveals spa and wellness facilities at its first St Regis African resort

by Aoife Dowling | 04 Apr 2013

Starwood has unveiled the spa and wellness facilities at its first St Regis-branded resort in Africa.

Located in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Le Morne, St. Regis Mauritius Resort houses the region’s first Iridium Spa featuring 12 treatment rooms including two couples’ rooms, all with views of the Indian ocean.

Facilities at the 21,500 sq ft (2,000sq m) spa include a relaxation lounge, spa pools, a sauna, a spa consultation room and steam rooms, as well as a dedicated men's grooming salon and a 24-hour fitness club.

Set in a colonial style building, the spa uses beauty and skincare brands Valmont and Bella Luccè.

The Valmont rituals focus on anti-aging and offer different levels of each treatment from 30-minute express to 130-minute intense sessions.

The organic Belle Luccè rituals include signature treatments such as the two-hour Hot Guava and Coconut Milk Body Ritual. This treatment is full of potent antioxidants and vitamins to protect the skin from damage caused by environmental toxins and removes dead cells to promote new cell growth. It includes a body polish, mask and massage.

A range of massages are also on offer and include tools such as bamboos, coco cups and exotic wood stones.

Designed by South African firm Stauch Vorster Architects with interiors by Trevor Julius of design firm dsgn, The St. Regis Mauritius Resort is modelled on a Victorian sugar-baron's manor house set in a historical estate.

The resort features 172 guestrooms and suites. There is also a luxurious beachfront St. Regis Villa featuring a private entrance, four bedrooms with private pools and gardens, entertainment and dining areas, an infinity pool, a bar and private spa treatment room.
