Regent Seven Seas Cruises has now revealed details for the new Seven Seas Explorer spa facilities. Located lower on deck five will be the upcoming luxury cruise ship’s Canyon Ranch SpaClub complete with treatments developed in partnership with lifestyle and beauty experts, Red Flower.
“With a sophisticated design and featuring exquisite, one-of-a-kind treatments, the Canyon Ranch SpaClub will provide our guests with a tranquil haven for personal enrichment and relaxation,” said Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “We’re building the world’s most luxurious ship and wanted to establish a new standard for spa elegance, and once our vision is complete, the spa aboard Seven Seas Explorer will be the most luxurious at sea.”
The team took inspiration from a cocoon when approaching the spa’s design, according to Regent, “interpreted not only abstractly in the spa’s aesthetic details, but also envisioned as a metaphor for the rejuvenation guests experience during their spa visit.” The reception area will even highlight a Swarovski crystal sculpture that refracts light.
Eight treatment rooms will offer guests a number of Red Flower treatments described by the cruise line below:
- Red Flower Naturally Nourishing: A Ritual of the Arctic Sea, a 100-minute experience inspired by the spirit of the icy sea with ingredients rich in antioxidants and omegas 3, 6 and 9, sourced directly from the Arctic Circle. Muscle tension is released with a deep tissue massage using Arctic berry and evergreen oils after relaxing in an organic birch mineral hydrotherapy soak.
- Red Flower North Atlantic Journey, an 80-minute body-exfoliating ritual with organic sea salts harvested from the Atlantic Ocean, enriched with sea algae and aloe vera, and scented with Icelandic Moonflower. The body is then enveloped in a toning and hydrating wrap of Italian Blood Orange before a restorative massage with balancing French lavender.
- Red Flower Japan: A Revitalizing Ritual of the North Pacific, a 100-minute, six-part massage body ritual perfected in Japan that takes the therapeutic properties of delicate flowers and invigorating citrus oils and pairs them with traditional techniques for caring for the body. The treatment begins with a ginger grass and bamboo scrub followed by a nutrient-rich rice bran wrap and acupressure facial massage. A mineral soak infused with hinoki and chlorophyll oils and a shiatsu-inspired massage creates balanced energy.
- Red Flower Hammam: A Detoxifying Ritual from the Indian Ocean, a 100-minute ritual of deep detoxification. Guests are vigorously scrubbed with a blend of coffee, olive stones and fresh lemons, and wrapped in a rich rhassoul clay to draw deep impurities out of the body. This is followed by a float in Dead Sea salts and a cleanse with Moroccan mint tea and silt. Then guests are recharged with a Turkish massage using essences of cardamom, jasmine, bergamot, amber and clove.
Spa amenities will include a thermal suite with hot and cold experiences to benefit circulation such as an infrared sauna, aromatic steam room and a cold room. There will also be a separate shower room with preset shower treatments and bonus lighting and audio effects. Outside on deck will be a teak-deck terrace with plush loungers surrounding an infinity-edge plunge pool, contoured to the ship’s stern (rendered in the header above).
Rounding out the spa facilities will be the adjacent salon and fitness center up one deck, accessed by a circular staircase.
Seven Seas Explorer will set sail on its maiden voyage on July 20, 2016. For more information, visit Regent Seven Seas Cruises‘ website here.
