FOUR SEASONS Buenos Aires launches unique Journey SPA treatment


Four Seasons, Buenos Aires, The SPA

Four Seasons Buenos Aires, one of the leading luxury hotels in the Argentinean capital, launches an innovative and unique concept of a SPA treatment. The new Journey Through Argentina has been conceived to illustrate the complex climatic regions of Argentina, the Northern part of the country which has a warmer climate, while the Southern part which is colder due to the proximity to mountains.

The focus on North is applied to the upper part of the body, including face, neck and back, while the focus on South is applied on the legs. For the treatment, the SPA uses exclusively natural ingredients from Argentina – the Yerba Mate, a plant rich in minerals and vitamins which has a powerful natural antioxidant effect, is used for the upper part of the body. The Yerba Mate is cultivated in the North East of Argentina close to the Iguacu Falls.

For the legs and feet, organic soy oil is applied, to provide a gentle sense of warmth and relaxation and then, a traditional local cream is applied to induce a refreshing feel. The traditional cream is made of natural ingredients such as mint and eucalyptus

I was fortunate to be the first guest to try out the new treatment, which will be launched by the end of the year. My very special thanks to Rebeca and Laura - a highly trained therapist, with an exceptional gift to ”connect” with the guest.

I have had the Journey Through Argentina treatment on a rainy Spring day (November), following an exciting day at the Palermo Argentine Polo Open, THE most prestigious polo event in the world. The treatment is relaxing, invigorating and refreshing at the same time, leaving the skin hydrated and soft. The antioxidant ingredients work perfectly for any rashes, bruises or inflamations.

The SPA at the Four Seasons Buenos Aires, won ”Best SPA in South America”, awarded by SPA FINDER.
