Tuesday 9, November 2010
SpaFinder, Inc., the global spa resource, has announced that the Ritz Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon has won the prestigious Readers’ Choice Award for favourite spa in Portugal.
Readers cast a record number of votes in the eighth-annual Awards, which are considered the most thorough and independent assessment of spas worldwide.
“Winning a Readers’ Choice Award is truly a remarkable achievement. There are more spa-goers around the globe than ever before, and competition within the spa industry is at an all-time high. To be recognised by our readers is an extraordinary honour for everyone at the Ritz Spa,” said Susie Ellis, president of SpaFinder, Inc.
All of the 1,500 square metres of the Ritz Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon is focused on relaxation. The overall feeling throughout is one of serene exoticism – from the multi-sensory ambience and minimalist design to the oversized beds and enticing scents.
The combination of skilled therapists and three different ranges of skin care products, including ESPA, SUNDÃRI and Sodashi (an organic, chemical free brand) all expertly maximise the benefits of physical and mental calm, resulting in a heightened experience for both body and mind.
The Spa is comprised of a welcoming reception, 18 metre long indoor pool and lounge area with oversized pool lounges, treatment rooms and a relaxation room. Mood-enhancing music and the exotic aromas of oils, incense and petals are complemented by seasonal fruits, herbal infusions and natural features influenced by Asian design. Guests are immediately enveloped in a relaxing ambience from the moment their Spa journey begins.
Spa Manager Rita Botelho said "As the Spa industry grows, we are thrilled to be named the number one Spa in Portugal. To be selected by readers is for us a double award; these are clients who have been at our Spa and enjoyed their experience. Their testimonial and their vote is a true recognition of our work."
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
