Therapeutic Spa Treatments in Naples


The beds are like clouds that float you to sleep. The beach is just steps from your balcony. And the sushi served at DUSK, one of seven restaurants to choose from at the Ritz Carlton, Naples, FL, is some of the freshest and most expertly prepared anywhere.

These are things you would expect at a top luxury brand like the Ritz Carlton. But what you might not expect—and must experience—is the intensely therapeutic Intuitive Retreat, at the 51,000-square-foot Ritz Calton Spa, Naples, FL, where organic brands like Body Bliss, Laboratory of Flowers and Voya are featured. Some lovely ESPA facials and body treatments have just been introduced, while spa signatures like the Intuitive, which are hugely popular, are here to stay.

The four-hour treatment (recently expanded from two- to three-hours) is indulgent, but it may be the best gift you can give to yourself. The therapist’s job, according to Spa Director Michelle Kelthy, is “to ask the guests some questions, and pick up on what they need.” Are you running on empty? Dealing with a mother lode of stress? Need to detox? You are in good hands, no matter what.

Start with a seaweed wrap, and be bound, neck to toe, in strips of seaweed. A beautiful seaweed bath will remineralize the skin and reboot the nervous system. The mermaid soak could be followed by an aromatherapy massage, with powerful essential oils placed strategically on chakra points, or lymphatic drainage, reflexology, scalp massage and more. Hours later, the empathic therapist will offer recommendations on how to hold onto the healing benefits at home.

It’s guaranteed that you will emerge feeling refreshed, rebooted, rebalanced—a much more finely calibrated, in-tune version of yourself. -—Rona Berg
