The Ritz Carlton Spa, New Orleans

Friday, October 16, 2009

I am a bona fide spa addict. Along with trying new restaurants, it runs a close second in my hobby list.

So when we moved to New Orleans, one of the very first things I did, after finding the local market, dry cleaners, and post office, was check out the spa-scene. {Side Note: There are a more local spas which I will be checking out and blogging about in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!} But I first decided to check out The Ritz Carlton Spa, New Orleans. I was greeted with an always welcomed glass of champagne by a super friendly gal who showed me all around the place. And let me just tell you a thing or two about this place, honey. If you opened the dictionary and looked up 'spa', this place would pop off the page at you ... it was simply lovely. It had a distinct New Orleans feel to it - the furnishings and the architecture of the place were spot on. It even smelled like you had just stepped into a magnolia garden. To top it all off, my 90-min swedish massage ranked right on up there with the best. Ah, I had found my perfect little escape right in the middle of the City!

Elle magazine has named this spa one of the Top 10 Spas in the United States. Self magazine has coined it a Top 20 Getaway. I've named it one of the best spas I've been to, a true spa experience.

Now here's the good stuff - Not a lot of folks know about this, but Monday through Thursday locals get a 20% discount on services! 20%! Grab a few girlfriends and make an afternoon of it - who doesn't like catching up with a great friend over pedicures, right? So get on in there and treat yourself ... you work hard, you deserve it!
