Escape Reality at the Tranquil Remède SpaAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
The staff at Remède Spa face a major challenge every day: transport guests from the hustle, bustle, and occasional insanity of downtown San Francisco to a serene, peaceful hideaway that feels a million miles away. Somehow, they pull off the feat with flying colors.
Located on the 6th floor of the St. Regis hotel, Remède is a serious oasis for city dwellers and visitors alike with 9,000 square feet of sleek, sophisticated design and a lengthy list of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments. Did we mention you’ll be slipping on a robe that feels like it’s woven from clouds and indulging in Champagne and truffles?
Beauty treatments are specially customized to each guest’s needs, and select services integrate seasonally fresh herbs from the spa’s in-site garden. Facials, massages, body treatments, waxing, and nail services are all on the menu, but if you’re looking for something truly unique, try one of the signature experiences like the Purity Ritual, a 120-minute treatment that’s intended to rid the body of toxins through Dead Sea salt hydrotherapy and a focused abdominal massage.
Once you’ve been properly pampered, prepare to relax by the pool. Just try not to let the view distract you from a restful repose (just kidding, that would be impossible): the 50-foot heated indoor infinity pool overlooks some of the city’s best sites. Order lunch or snacks, or retreat to the locker room for some time in the steam rooms, saunas, and whirlpools.
On your way out, don’t forget to stop by the boutique to pick up products from lines like Laboratoire Remède, Bliss, Skinceuticals, Omorovicza, and more. And prepare yourself to go back to the real world — unfortunately it’s nothing as dreamy as this.
