It’s like no sea-going spa. Chic and lavishly designed, the Canyon Ranch SpaClub® will debut on Regent Seven Seas Explorer in July 2016, like the ship itself, embraces luxury as no other. Occupying space on deck five, the spa will offer a selection of posh pampering options developed by Canyon Ranch in partnership with lifestyle and beauty experts, Red Flower, and premiering exclusively on Seven Seas Explorer before expanding across the fleet.
Stepping into the spa will be akin to cocooning as it envelopes your mind, body and spirit. Decorative light fixtures cast small twinkling lights off an abstract Swarovski crystal sculpture, forming dappled reflections on the marble floor to evoke an aura of woodland twilight.
The bliss begins in the celestial treatment foyer warmed by heated loungers with seating surfaces perfectly contoured to promote ergonomic relaxation and to warm the skin and tissue into a deep state of relaxation.
From there the pampering starts with services such as:
- Red Flower Naturally Nourishing: A Ritual of the Arctic Sea, a 100-minute experience inspired by the spirit of the icy sea with ingredients rich in antioxidants and omegas 3, 6 and 9, sourced directly from the Arctic Circle. Muscle tension is released with a deep tissue massage using Arctic berry and evergreen oils after relaxing in an organic birch mineral hydrotherapy soak.
- Red Flower North Atlantic Journey, an 80-minute body-exfoliating ritual with organic sea salts harvested from the Atlantic Ocean, enriched with sea algae and aloe vera, and scented with Icelandic Moonflower. The body is then enveloped in a toning and hydrating wrap of Italian Blood Orange before a restorative massage with balancing French lavender.
- Red Flower Japan: A Revitalizing Ritual of the North Pacific, a 100-minute, six-part massage body ritual perfected in Japan that takes the therapeutic properties of delicate flowers and invigorating citrus oils and pairs them with traditional techniques for caring for the body. The treatment begins with a ginger grass and bamboo scrub followed by a nutrient-rich rice bran wrap and acupressure facial massage. A mineral soak infused with hinoki and chlorophyll oils and a shiatsu-inspired massage creates balanced energy.
- Red Flower Hammam: A Detoxifying Ritual from the Indian Ocean, a 100-minute ritual of deep detoxification. Guests are vigorously scrubbed with a blend of coffee, olive stones and fresh lemons, and wrapped in a rich rhassoul clay to draw deep impurities out of the body. This is followed by a float in Dead Sea salts and a cleanse with Moroccan mint tea and silt. Then guests are recharged with a Turkish massage using essences of cardamom, jasmine, bergamot, amber and clove.
After treatment options include the thermal suite where a variety of hot-to-cold experiences await, a state-of-the-art infrared sauna, an aromatic steam room, a cold room that maintains a constant temperature of 54 degrees Fahrenheit, and a menu of preset shower treatments with various distributions of water flow, chroma-therapeutic lighting and audio effects that mimic natural sounds such as thunderstorms or waterfalls.
There will also be an inviting teak-deck terrace fitted with plush, partially covered lounge chairs that surround an infinity-edge plunge pool, and a full-service salon for head to toe treatments. A dramatic circular staircase leads to the fitness center on the deck six that is stocked with free-weights, machines, and cardio workout equipment.
