With a stunning two-story setting on the grounds of The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage, North America’s newest Ritz-Carlton Spa has unveiled a full menu of treatments and fitness offerings, with a focus on indoor-outdoor wellness.

The 25,000 square-foot destination spa offers treatments for hotel guests as well as area residents and visitors. Fifteen treatment rooms feature private outdoor showers and terraces, an al fresco co-ed whirlpool and relaxation area with waterfall and mountain vistas, an outdoor cold plunge for gentlemen.

Leading the way is the spa’s Spirit of the Mountains body ritual, presenting a soothing sequence of indoor and outdoor experiences designed to relax and renew. The 100-minute treatment is inspired by ancient healing traditions of the desert and includes a body exfoliation using natural mineral salts and healing desert botanicals, followed by a luxuriant visit to the treatment room’s private terrace shower.

A relaxing massage with lavender oil and warm desert healing stones follows, to be completed by a renewing body wrap and scalp massage.

With its calming use of indigenous prickly pear, arnica and fresh lavender, Spirit of The Mountains is part of the destination spa’s comprehensive menu of facial, body and massage treatments. Further signature choices include a unique black diamond-dust Rat Pack Facial for gentlemen; the carefully personalized Ritz-Carlton Tailored Facial; and the Quirogolf Massage -- an exclusive deep-body massage performed with heated golf balls and designed to deeply treat individual stress points.

For fitness enthusiasts, the  first-ever hotel installation of the OMNIA – Move, Train, Play experience offers multiple training modalities which can address group guests’ individual goals for strength, endurance, stability, flexibility, coordination and speed. Additionally, highly-advanced TechnoGym cardio equipment offers sophisticated display technology which allows guests to virtually run or ride at a city, scenic or trail location of their choosing.

The fitness center also offers personal training, movement studios and classes, spinning bikes, Pilates, yoga and one-on-one assisted stretching.

The spa’s visual design is accented by high-ceilinged white interiors, one-of-a-kind water and fire features, and a foyer chandelier featuring 222 suspended quartz crystals. Added features of the inviting sanctuary include a spacious beauty boutique, private whirlpools, rain showers and treatments, and eucalyptus-infused steam and sauna facilities.

Treatments at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Rancho Mirage may be reserved by resort guests as well as those living or visiting in the area, with access to the spa facilities available to those purchasing services. Additionally, a very limited number of exclusive spa memberships is being made available for purchase by area residents.
