The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco Unveils Spa L’OCCITANE by the Bay

The new 6,200 square foot spa is a beautiful extension of the L’OCCITANE brand, now found in 3,000 boutiques worldwide. Every treatment, ingredient, and ritual is drawn from a page of the L’OCCITANE grand herbarium – a resource of hundreds of essential oils and natural ingredients. Each treatment entails an olfactory journey that begins with soothing and energizing aromas. Sensorial textures, relaxing music, and herbal teas complete the voyage within each of the 30 treatments offered.
Founded by Olivier Baussan more than 40 years ago, the L’OCCITANE en Provence brand delivers Provencal-like immersion; each scent and each skincare and body care formula delivers pleasure through beauty and well-being. In the hands of trained spa professionals, those same formulas now deliver the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation. You’ve not truly experienced the benefits of L’OCCITANE’S Immortelle products, for instance, until you’ve had this customer favored line applied by a L’OCCITANE expert, of which there are 12 at the new Spa. (Try either the Immortelle Divine Secret or the Immortelle Secret of Youth facials; each will leave your skin glowing.) Their iconic Lavender and Verbena products are even more alluring and enchanting when incorporated into proprietary professional treatments and techniques. And the brand’s intensely nourishing Shea products take-on transportive qualities when incorporated into a Shea Nurturing Massage. Three world-exclusive treatments are also offered: Jet-Lag Revival, Micro-Climate Healing, and Tech Tension Relief.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Spa L’OCCITANE by
the Bay to The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco,” says Bruce Gorelick, the hotel’s General
Manager. “L’OCCITANE’s award-winning history of luxury and service dovetail so
well with The Ritz-Carlton brand by creating unrivaled, authentic spa
