Get glow­ing skin at Four Sea­sons and spas with a twist


This sa­lon doesn’t just do your stan­dard file-and-pol­ish man­i­cures and pedi­cures – there are all kinds of wacky and won­der­ful treat­ments too. Th­ese in­clude the candy land pedi­cure, where you can squish your toes in ‘gum­balls’ and have your feet mas­saged with choco­late, and the snow­man man­i­cure, where you soak your hands in cool­ing “snow” and build your very own lit­tle frosty friend. Al­ter­na­tively, you can have a man­i­cure or pedi­cure in­spired by mer­maids, uni­corns and other myth­i­cal crea­tures.

While you wait for your treat­ment, you’ll get to take your pick from the candy bar – filled with retro sweets – and sip on a com­pli­men­tary mock­tail, cof­fee or hot choco­late with marsh­mal­lows. This is a great op­tion for a birth­day party or bridal shower.

The spa in Re­nais­sance Down­town is home to six spa­cious treat­ment suites that are each linked to a dif­fer­ent sense: sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and in­tu­ition. At the smell suite, you’ll join your ther­a­pist at the alchemy bar with cof­fee beans, herbs and spices and work to­gether to make the per­fect scrub for you. Mean­while, at the sound suite, you’ll let the guided sing­ing bowl med­i­ta­tion lull you into a deep state of re­lax­ation while ly­ing back on a heal­ing vi­broa­cous­tic lounger.
