A cool and modern Charlotte spa
Sponsored page. This property is not Star Rated.
Though Charlotte is a major city — especially one of the biggest in the Southeast — the upscale spa options are few before Thankfully, when Forbes Travel Guide  The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte debuted in 2009, it also introduced the Queen City to The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Charlotte.

The modern décor and luxurious amenities set the tone for the Forbes Travel Guide spa’s extensive menu of lavish services, which utilize some of the property’s extraordinary features such as the organic honey harvested from The Ritz’s onsite beehives. One of the spa’s biggest attractions is its swimming pool, which when visited in the evening, boasts one of the most magical, expansive views of Uptown Charlotte.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Ritz-Carlton Spa features clean lines and sleek detailing in both the guest suites and lounge areas.
  • Though modern and cool, the lounge areas are truly warm and inviting. This feat is achieved not only through the gracious hospitality of the spa staff, but also the gentle lighting, soft music, and delightful scents pouring throughout the 13,000-square-foot space.
  • The Ritz-Carlton Spa offers three couples treatments, which can be had in the spacious couples suite.
  • While The Ritz-Carlton Spa features several beauty and skincare lines in its retail shop including Archipelago, MoroccanOil, and Me! Bath, spa aestheticians utilize Eminence Organic Skin Care in many of its treatments.
  • Aestheticians like to incorporate the property’s harvested honey into their treatments, such as the Honey and Chocolate Detox Ritual (a 110-minute luxurious body treatment that includes exfoliation and a body mask).
Things to Know
  • The best way to reserve an appointment is to call the hotel directly. From there, an operator will put you through to the spa where you can make a reservation.
  • Keep in mind that if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, the Southern respite requires that you call at least 24 hours before your scheduled service to avoid being charged the full fee.
  • If you’re planning on experiencing the spa with a group of people, the cancelation policy differs — you must cancel at least four weeks in advance.
The Treatments
  • There are several options to choose from when it comes to massage treatments. For starters, The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte Signature massage is the most traditional of all of the massages available.
  • A classic Swedish massage, the Charlotte Signature is coupled with one of five organic aromatherapy oils making it a wholly relaxing experience.
  • Another tranquilizing option is the Eco-Green Body Treatment, which purifies the body with a fine grain scrub and earthy body mask. A hot-scalp oil treatment and intuitive massage complete this service.
The Facilities
  • The welcoming 13,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Spa comes with five treatment rooms, one of those being designated for duos.
  • Women can melt away in the Himalayan Salt Vault, an experience that replicates the restorative benefits found in natural salt caves and grottos around the world.
  • One of the most popular places to relax is the Aqua Lounge, which boasts a pool for swimming and a whirlpool for soaking.
  • A 24-hour fitness center, which includes a movement studio and an area with free weights.
  • Guests of the spa will also find pleasure in the mani-pedi studio.
