Some of the best spas in Santiago are found in hotels. In fact, two of the city's best offerings when it comes to pampering are the following:
AKO Wellness & Spa, Grand Hyatt Santiago:
Located in its own building in the hotel grounds, the AKO spa is a refuge in the city. A newly refurbished sauna area opened July 2013, and there's also a large fitness area and exercise room for classes. Treatments range from massages - Swedish, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Hot Stones - to facials and special Mapuche rituals. The latter begins with a herbal jacuzzi to warm you through before an hour-long massage. Relaxing, nourishing and hydrating, this is the perfect start or end to any trip. Also, watch this spot: a new mani-pedi parlour is opening which will be Chile's only parlour to use Yves Saint Laurent products...

Ritz-Carlton Boutique Spa:
This mini spa has everything you need for some express pampering when staying in the city center. The therapists are sweet and welcoming, and the menu includes chocolate and grape wraps as well as a quirky Rapa Nui massage. However, the real winner here is the four-hand massage in which two therapists work their magic in sync, rubbing away any reminder of a long flight. A total treat for the body, mind and soul!
