ESPA Life at Corinthia, the latest spa by industry leader Sue Harmsworth MBE, opened July 2011 as the largest spa in the UK. Measuring over 37,000 square feet and covering four levels, the spa is now ESPA’s worldwide flagship. It is also the first location to offer the brand’s new ESPA Life concept, an integrated wellness approach that incorporates complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into a luxury spa environment. Not only is it the first of its kind for ESPA, but it is the first city-center luxury spa in the world to offer CAM programs to its guests. ESPA Life features extensive spa offerings for both men and women, including new age-defying facials and a ‘Rush Hour Beauty’ menu with treatments created for maximum results within a short period of time. The expansive spa facilities, open to all hotel guests as well as members of ESPA Life, feature an entire floor of thermal options including an impressive 30-foot indoor silver steel swimming pool, an amphitheatre sauna, and exquisite black mosaic steam rooms. There are 15 treatment “pods”, one private spa suite for larger spa parties, and a spa lounge serving nutritional yet delicious cuisine.

Centered on an expansive, lagoon-style pool, The Westin Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal Costa Rica is adjacent to the championship Robert Trent Jones II golf facility. Inspiring wellness with its signature Westin The Spa, the resort features beautiful gardens, luxurious suites, thatch-roofed bungalows, as well as breathtaking vistas. The Spa presents its signature treatment The Shells. With unique sea ingredients, using two Costa Rica endemic shells, hot, soft Pacific sand and coconut oil, the expert therapist introduces to the body to a calm and relaxing atmosphere. "The shells are filled with the sand from our beach. The treatment starts with an aromatic ritual that equilibrates the mind and body and then the therapist starts the massage using warm coconut oil", said Martha Solorzano, the Manager of The Spa.
