New-look for The Residence Mauritius spa

The Residence Mauritius has announced the unveiling of its new-look Sanctuary Spa, which has undergone an extensive EUR700,000 (£597,000, US$939,000) refurbishment.

Facilities at the 600sq m (6,458sq ft) spa include 11 treatment rooms, including two couples' rooms, which feature an Asian-influenced design with pebbled floors and lattice furniture.

Beauty and haircare treatments have been designed by France-based brand Carita, which has developed the Haute Beauté concept in reference to the Haute Couture fashion term.

Adults and children can now benefit from new treatments at the spa, including two signature treatments for parents - The Sanctuary Massage and the Ylang Ylang Couples massage.

The Sanctuary Massage comprises a combination of yogic breathing techniques, aromatic massages and Reiki, while the Ylang Ylang Couples Massage uses a signature aroma.

Meanwhile, a new gymnasium with cardiovascular equipment has been created as part of the revamp, with a personal trainer offering tailor-made programmes using Tai Chi and Yoga.

A spokesperson said: "The spa has been designed as a place of tranquillity and serenity where all stresses and strains drift away as soothing therapies and calming rituals come into their own."
