Milan’s subterranean spa enclave

Milan's riotous pulse of high fashion, industry and commerce hushes behind the doors of Park Hyatt Milan's subterranean enclave The Spa by Sisley.

The recently refurbished spa underpins the luxury boutique hotel’s mission to provide an intimate oasis of relaxation and tranquility steps from the city's bustling downtown. The spa, on the lower level of the 19th-century palazzo-style hotel, is decorated in cream-colored Italian travertine limestone with black marble inlay and pastel Venetian stucco.

The Look

The intimate Milan spa is crowned by a whirlpool laid in 250,000 24-carat gold-leaf tiles, and seats up to four people under atmospheric lighting. The absence of a swimming pool reinforces the spa's mission to create an intimate, rejuvenating, tranquil domain. Beyond the whirlpool’s frosted-glass partitions, relaxation area loungers accommodate guests as they depart two steam rooms, one for men and one for women.

Three treatment rooms are outfitted with showers. Its largest — a two-person private spa room – is popular among couples, families and friends for its simultaneous treatments and private, aromatic Turkish bath.

The Treatments

Massages and facial and body treatments were developed as part of the exclusive partnership the hotel has with the luxury French beauty house, Sisley. You’ll likely find what your skin needs here — the products aim to firm, hydrate, purify, calm and smooth travel-weary skin.

The spa menu also includes holistic therapies such as an 80-minute hot stone massage that uses smooth, heated basalt stones. A beauty salon menu offers grooming services such as waxing, manicures and pedicures.

Among the seven packages, the two-person Sparkling & Beauty Immersion by Sisely provides 90-minute facials using Sisley Les Soins Phyto-Aromatiques, followed by an aperitivo voucher at the sleek Mio Bar or the airy lobby lounge on the ground floor.

Deep muscle, slow-flow and exfoliating body massages range from 50 to 80 minutes. The luxury spa’s most popular body treatment is an 80-minute session using Sisley Hydratation Intense Anti-Age formula with marjoram, lavender and sage oils.

Facials aim to pamper dehydrated skin, clear blotchy complexions and brighten pallid palls. The spa’s cult favorite therapy is Sisley Les Soin Phyto-Aromatique Jeunesse Repulpant à la Rose, a black rose-scented mask rich in anti-aging ingredients.

The Extras

The fitness center, matched in warm travertine limestone and black marble trim, has the latest Technogym cardio and strength machines, including a Kinesis rack, treadmills, ellipticals, cross trainers, exercise bikes, wellness tools and weights. A trainer is available on request for a personalized regiment.
