The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston has announced the opening of The Spa.
The Post Oak, Houston’s only AAA Five-Diamond hotel, is owned by Texas billionaire Tilman Fertitta, owner of Landry’s Inc. restaurants, and the NBA’s Houston Rockets.
According to a media release, The Spa is a 20,000-square-foot urban oasis on the hotel’s 5th floor that offers unique treatment rooms, including a couples suite with an en-suite bathtub and shower; tranquility pools with body-contouring hot stone daybeds; aromatherapy-infused steam rooms; high temperature, low humidity saunas; multi-sensory thermal showers; and a state-of-the-art Technogym fitness center.
“I have travelled the world seeing the most beautiful spas with the finest amenities,” said Fertitta in a statement. “Houston deserves a unique, first-class spa and I was inspired to bring one to my Post Oak hotel. We offer only top-of-the-line products and services that you won’t find anywhere else in the country. Whether you are a Houstonian or a hotel guest, you will want to visit our spa.”
The media release states that The Spa promises to indulge guests with an unparalleled wellness menu that features exclusive products, aromatic oils, body and facial treatments, massages, rituals, and the latest innovations in skin care techniques.
For this, The Post Oak Hotel has partnered with Cinq Mondes, a leading Paris spa brand creating rituals and treatments cultivated from Brazil, Japan, Polynesia, Bali, Switzerland, Morocco, India, and Thailand.
Among the exclusive treatments designed for The Spa is the “Rituals of Five Worlds.” The Ritual features a warmed, steam poultice massage and gentle body stretching with a Javanese fusion of lemongrass, ginger and bergamot to ease muscular tension. The treatment includes dual-therapist cranial acupressure and foot reflexology with fragrant Moroccan eucalyptus and cinnamon to “awaken the senses.”
“Nowhere else in the world can someone receive our Rituals of Five Worlds treatment,” said Daisy Tepper, Spa Director at The Post Oak Hotel. “With more than 145 different languages spoken in Houston, we were inspired to develop a diverse and cultured experience that pays homage to ancient traditions from masters around the world.”
Another unique treatment is the“Ko Bi Do Lift.” Inspired by a Japanese wellness ritual, this is said to be “a highly effective and non-invasive face lift that begins with an in-depth purification of the skin. An intense massage lifting technique is performed, exercising the facial muscles and contouring the face for a toned, plump effect.”
Yet another exclusive to The Post Oak Hotel is the German-engineered and Italian-manufactured In-Skin facial system; a two-hour treatment featuring microdermabrasion, oxygen, LED lighting, radio frequency, electroporation, and air massage.
Tepper said, “This In-Skin technology was only offered in Los Angeles until now. We know the importance of technology in today’s world, and this In-Skin treatment is truly a one-of-kind experience. Guests see immediate results.”
Other partners include Jacqueline Piotaz, known for revolutionary and environmentally-friendly skincare products made in Switzerland; and Aromatherapy Associates of London.
With the latter, The Spa takes personalization to another level with a “Bespoke Aromatherapy Journey.” This journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with the guest to develop a specialized formula of aromatherapy oils and practices specifically for that individual.
Signature massages and treatments for men can also be found at The Spa at The Post Oak, including “The Modern Man’s Facial.” This treatment first softens the skin, heals bumps and revitalizes complexion using a potent multi-layer peel and anti-stress massage.
