How does a pedicure in a homemade beer bath sound? Or an invigorating full-body exfoliation infused with the finest ingredients including coffee and cocoa beans? Ingredients such as these are known to comfort and entice taste buds, so it should be no wonder why these mouthwatering ingredients are used to soothe and rejuvenate the skin as well! We’ve compiled a list of gourmet spa treatments that are made with some of the most tasteful ingredients, making them practically good enough to eat!
A spa treatment can’t be considered truly luxurious until there’s caviar involved! At Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa in The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, guests can indulge in a Caviar Luxury spa package. The package includes deep-surface, lavish Skin Caviar Luxe creams to assist in firming and revitalizing the skin, 60 minutes of a decadent Caviar Massage followed by a 90 minute Caviar Firming Facial!
Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel London sure knows how to cater to the taste buds with their British Beer & Barley spa treatments. At the London hotel, guests can get pampered in a Blissful Barley Body Wrap or a Pale Ale Pedicure! The Blissful Barley Body Wrap includes Epsom salts, hop flowers, sesame seed oil and rough grist barley to help circulation, ease swelling and restore vitality to worn out skin. After the body wrap treatment, guests can sit back and relax with a glass of refreshing British beer and a barley snack!
If that doesn’t sound tasty enough, soak your feet into a beer-filled pedicure treatment instead! The Pale Ale Pedicure allows guests to delight in a hot malt drink and barley snack before the treatment even begins! The pedicure starts with an invigorating blend of Epsom salts, hop flowers and sesame seed oil to exfoliate the feet before they are soaked in an energizing beer bath (using Hooky Gold Ale from Oxfordshire). Guests will then undergo a pressure point foot massage with Ninkasi lotion and receive a nourishing barley and sesame seed foot wrap.
Coffee and chocolate: two amazingly addicting ingredients that we all love to hate. But when you incorporate them in a lavish spa treatment, they’re practically impossible to resist! At Spa Grand Velas in the Grand Velas Riviera Maya Resort, guests can indulge in a delightful Coffee & Cocoa Experience. The treatment includes a coffee exfoliation followed by a relaxing circulatory massage with chocolate oil, allowing your skin to be totally revitalized!
At The Oxford Club, Spa & Salon, satisfy your sweet tooth with the spa’s Signature Almond Joy Experience! This exclusive candy bar-themed treatment nourishes and moisturizes the skin and includes a full-body exfoliation with Sanitas Coconut Sugar Scrub with a decadent chocolate body masque (completely calorie-free!), all while you unwind in a warm body wrap. After taking a revitalizing shower, guests can return for a warm almond oil massage!
The Oxford Club, Spa & Salon continues the tasty treatment trend with its Signature Milk & Honey Bath Experience! This unique treatment begins with a warm milk and honey mask and sugar scrub to exfoliate, soothe and rejuvenate the skin. Guests will then slide into the spa’s double slipper antique claw foot bathtub and revel in a nourishing milk bath featuring a cool stone face massage and soothing scalp massage! The bath is followed by the spa’s extravagant milk and honey body butter treatment which firms and hydrates the skin.
