Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead has announced a new spa concept, which features a menu of new signature treatments and a collection of partnerships with luxury brands like Knesko and Deborah Lippman, according to an article on FTN News.

Atlanta is known for being a “city in the forest,” and fittingly, the new spa program invites guests to discover a transformative wellness experience while enjoying pampering from new acclaimed luxury partners.

The spa’s new treatments are aimed toward encouraging guests to live life to the fullest and focus on being present. These treatments invite guests to forge a deeper connection with themselves and their surroundings.

New treatments available at the Waldorf Astoria Spa include:

  • The Forest Therapy experience
      • This treatment utilizes an essential oil blend of evergreen, pink pepper, cypress and juniper—from Aromatherapy Associates, which is one of the spa’s partners—for a tension relieving massage. Following the massage, guests receive a mud, as well as a scalp massage. Proceeds from this treatment will be donated to Trees Atlanta, an organization working to address Atlanta’s tree loss, protect its forests and create new green space.
  • A Walk in the Woods
      • This full-body treatment offers a personalized journey to discover and address one's specific needs by combining massage techniques to the desired pressure and body therapies that can include warm stones, exfoliated sea salts and aromatherapy oils.


Biologique Recherche

An international skincare brand from France with a reputation for astounding effectiveness using pure, concentrated and raw ingredients, as well as innovative and meticulous protocols and procedures.

Bringing its renowned treatments to an Atlanta hotel for the first time, Waldorf Astoria Spa will offer treatments including the Custom Biologique Recherche Facial, a 50- or 80-minute treatment where specially trained therapists analyze each individual’s skin. Tailored, state-of-the-art “skin cocktails” are then formulated for a completely personalized facial that achieves the most effective and immediate results.


Knesko Skin bridges science and spirituality with revolutionary Gemclinical skin care technology. Developed by Reiki master and company founder Lejla Cas, together with a team of doctors, its serum-infused collagen gel masks use precious gemstones and minerals to activate the chakras and help rejuvenate skin.

Founded in 2004 by Shel Pink, Spa Ritual is inspired by clean beauty, spa culture and the art of self-care. Spa Ritual is a sustainable, vegan beauty brand.

As part of the new spa menu, guests can partake in Spa Ritual’s Sound of Color Manicure or Pedicure, which begins with a fragrant breathing ritual to calm the body for meditation and introspection. The technician will then introduce The Sound of Color iPod device that includes a meditation session guided by a guest’s nail color of choice for an integration of beauty, health and wellness.
