A Sarasota sanctuary
This exclusive spa, for use only by guests of the resort and members of The Spa & Salon at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, combines state-of-the-art design with European technique. More than 100 treatments make up the comprehensive menu, but massages, masques, scrubs and body treatments are the specialty. Ten varieties of facials cater to clients with varying skin types.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • To maximize your experience, this Four-Star sanctuary also offers three add-on “enhancements” you can combine with any massage.

  • The health-focused spa will have you feeling trim and slim in just 60 minutes with the Slimming Silhouette Body Wrap, a popular wrap treatment that specializes in removing fat cells and localized cellulite from the body.
  • You also can’t go wrong with the Sapphire Sea Wrap, an invigorating treatment that uses pearl-body exfoliation and is followed by a cocoon of pearl and kelp body mud that replenishes damaged skin with essential nutrients.
