From collagen-boosting microneedling to a massage with custom-made glass tools, these innovative treatments help guests to relax and rejuvenate while enjoying some of Italy’s most beautiful destinations.
Signature spa treatments on offer include:
‘Murano Massage’ at Belmond Hotel Cipriani
Positioned beside the lagoon on the tip of Giudecca Island overlooking the Doge’s Palace, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is a true Venetian legend famous for its exquisite interiors and incredible cuisine. The hotel’s Casanova Wellness Centre is located in the gardens where the legendary lothario once wooed his lovers and offers a tempting array of delightful treatments.
Due to popularity, the 50-minute Murano Massage has been permanently added to the spa menu after a preview run last season. Combining tension relieving Swedish techniques and circulation boosting cross-fibre muscle techniques, the massage uses specially made spherical glass rollers from the Venetian island of Murano – famed for centuries for its glass-making – to treat acupressure points in the neck, back and feet. Additional tools include a 2cm glass spoon for the eye contour and a 3cm roller for the face. Guests can opt for either a soothing, soft massage or a more intensive treatment to ease tight muscles.
‘Ritual of Longevity’ and ‘Cell Premium Microneedling’ at Belmond Hotel Splendido
Set overlooking the picture-perfect harbour of Portofino with its luxury yachts bobbing at anchor, Belmond Hotel Splendido is one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats. Its Wellness Centre is a relaxing hideaway using luxurious products including Aromatherapy Associates and Sothys.
The new Ritual of Longevity is an all-Mediterranean wellness experience featuring regenerative Shea oil and melatonin-rich, detoxifying cherry extract. The 80-minute treatment begins with an exfoliating foot bath using scotch broom-scented volcanic minerals, followed by a body cleanse with black soap. The final step is a massage, applied with shea and cherry oils enriched with the essences of lavender and sweet fennel.
Belmond Hotel Splendido has also launched the anti-ageing Cell Premium Microneedling Treatment. Lasting 50 – 80 minutes, this special treatment uses a microneedle roller to remove damaged collagen in skin cells. Following this, a concentrated serum of plant stem cells stimulates the production of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
‘Ritual of Happiness’ at Belmond Hotel Caruso
A former 11th-century palace set on cliffs beside the Amalfi Coast, Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello seems to drift on a ‘balcony’ above the Mediterranean Sea and boasts a stunning infinity pool that appears suspended in the clouds. The pampering Caruso Wellness Centre offers a range of detoxifying treatments.
The Ritual of Happiness gives guests the chance to indulge in a complete wellness experience using beautifully perfumed artisan soaps from Sicily, refreshing mandarin essential oil and the anxiety-busting essences of cedar, bergamot and mint. The soothing 80-minute treatment includes a foot bath with balancing star anise soap, a cleansing body exfoliation with jasmine-scented volcanic pumice and a body massage with smoothing apricot butter.
Another new treatment, the relaxing 40-minute Frankincense and Blue Camomile Feet and Legs Ritual, begins with a mineral-enriched camomile foot bath followed by the application of lavender and rhassoul clay to the legs and feet. The treatment ends with an expert massage using olive butter to help release tension.
‘Chiuri Chiuri Body Scrub’ at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo
Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo sits adjacent to Taormina’s Greek Theatre with unrivalled views of the coastline and Mount Etna. The hotel’s Wellness Centre offers complete relaxation, using all-natural signature products that capture the soothing scents of Sicily.
The 25-minute Chiuri Chiuri Scrub exfoliates the face and body using a special salt powder mixed with orange blossom scented oil for soft and silky skin. This fragrant signature treatment will leave guests feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
‘Sweet Almond Warm Body Ritual’ at Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea
Located in Taormina Mare, Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea is set on its own exclusive beach down in the beautiful Bay of Mazzarò. The hotel’s Wellness Centre perfectly captures the rejuvenating essence of Sicily, offering a range of treatments that draw on fragrant orange flowers, amber, sandalwood and jasmine.
The 50-minute Sweet Almond Warm Body Ritual is a nourishing treatment. After an exfoliation with natural olive oil black soap, guests can unwind with a relaxing massage using with moisturising almond body butter, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.
