Highly-anticipated spa incorporates modern treatments in a historical setting
Milan, 17 July 2012 – Amongst brick walls and 200-year-old vaulted ceilings in a 15 th century former convent, renowned designer Patricia Urquiola has created a relaxing and luxurious atmosphere removed from the noise of the city. The new Four Seasons Hotel Milan Spa, opening mid-July 2012, is a peaceful sanctuary, with seven treatment rooms, a swimming pool, a Turkish bath, sauna, Scottish shower, fitness studio and signature hair spa.
Under Urquiola’s direction, the interior design incorporates materials that are native to Italy and unique in design, from warming stones to wooden walls, etched with a beautiful pattern. Through a combination of warm colors and design techniques, like serigraphy, the Spa creates a relaxing environment for guests.
Four Seasons Hotel Milan invites its guests to experience luxury product houses La Prairie and Sodashi at the Spa. La Prairie combines the science and innovation of the 21 st century with the art of cosmetics and thermal spa experience to develop offers that extend beyond traditional spa treatments. For example, the Spa offers the very exclusive Caviar Firming treatment, which uses caviar pearls to firm the skin and make it soft and silky. La Prairie products will also be used in a range of massage and relaxation techniques at the SPA.
Sodashi is the ideal choice for those seeking a Holistic and organic approach to beauty, as these products offer a combination of natural elements, plant extracts and essential oils. One treatment available at the Spa is Samadara, anti-age ritual that takes advantage of the Ayurvedica philosophy to reactivate the vital energy of the skin, hydrating, regenerating and nurturing, using Sodashi products. The elasticity and consistency of the skin improves, diminishing the signs of age.
In addition to these products, the Spa features a contemporary hair spa by the renowned Rossano Feretti, creator of the innovative “Methodo” cut. The fitness area, which offers a personal trainer and yoga lessons, is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment from Technogym.
The new SPA will be open exclusively to hotel guests. In the late fall, the Spa will be open to non-guests. For more information about the Spa, visit http://www.fourseasons.com/milan/.
