Today our spa sojourn takes an international course (and in case you’re wondering, no jewelry is involved!) And, I have to toot my own horn a little here – this luxury hotel and spa is perfect to bring the five golden rings to life.
On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, Five golden rings.
Yep, you are invited to spa like a czar in Moscow, Russia’s Golden Ring Hotel. Skip the corporate owned franchises and enjoy true Soviet hospitality at this Russian owned palatial hotel where gold is omnipresent from the lobby to the rooms. The name Golden Ring, actually, refers to a ring of religious cities north of Moscow.
Like many spas from this part of the world, The Golden Ring’s Health and Beauty Centre focuses on results-oriented wellness therapies – as opposed to luxury treatments. The atmosphere is a little more clinical than one might expect, but don’t let this put you off visiting.
Many of the spa facilities are complimentary such as the gym and thalassotherapy (spa water therapy). Don’t forget to try their aroma-bath in a cedar enclosure developed by Russian scientists. The treatment combines aromatherapy with a sauna treatment – fragrance chosen by their European trained therapists – it’s included in your stay too. Other treatments may be prescribed by their staff based on your health concerns and preferences.
