Hotel Galvez & Spa on Galveston Island

August 18, 2014 on 12:03 pm | In Beachbooker, Spa Resorts, Texas | Comments Off



Goddess Swimwear from Today ShowGracing the coast of the Gulf of Mexico since 1911 is the renowned “Queen of the Gulf,” the Hotel Galvez & Spa®, a Wyndham Grand® Hotel and National Trust Historic Hotel of America. Following the 1900 Hurricane that devastated GalvestonIsland, prominent Galveston businessmen raised $1 million to construct the hotel as a symbol of recovery. Several multi-million dollar renovation projects by the current owners have returned the Galvez to its rightful place as “Queen of the Gulf Coast.” Hotel Galvez is the only historic beachfront hotel on the TexasGulfCoast.

Getting there:
The closest commercial airport to Galveston is Houston’s William P. Hobby, which is 45 minutes away. Hobby offers daily service via AirTran, American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue and Southwest. Private shuttle service begins at $35/pp.
Hotel Galvez Shares History Via Audio Tour and Hall of History
Hotel Galvez is the only historic beachfront hotel on the Texas Gulf Coast. Its longevity lends itself to an interesting history. In celebration of this history, the hotel recently released a free multimedia tour app for iPhone and Android smartphones. The free Hotel Galvez app provides a 25-minute history tour and a 20-minute ghost tour with scrollable images, numeric keypad entry and a keyword search function. The tour was produced by Acoustiguide Inc. (Espro Acoustiguide Group) which also produced the audio tour at Galveston’s popular Bishop’s Palace and the Tall Ship Elissa which are operated by the Galveston Historical Foundation.
In addition to the new audio tours, the hotel offers a Hall of History located in the lower level of the hotel. The Hall of History is a permanent exhibit, which is open to the public, that offers a history on the hotel and Galveston as well as a display featuring various items related to the hotel’s history.
Hotel Galvez Opens New Galvez Bar and Grill
Hotel Galvez & Spa completed a $900,000 renovation to its lobby, restaurant and bar in May 2013 and opened its newly branded Galvez Bar & Grill. While the hotel’s wicker furniture in the east and west promenade remains intact, the lobby is updated with new flooring, furniture and lighting. The hotel’s restaurant boasts a new look and new menu for guests. Galvez Bar & Grill features fresh local Gulf seafood from Pier 19 and Texas regional cuisine as well as an extensive bar bites menu featuring sliders, flatbreads and Campenchana (Mexican seafood cocktail). As part of this renovation, the hotel has also expanded its popular bar which has its own fascinating history. The bar, which is not original to the hotel, was purchased by hotel owner George Mitchell from the Old Galveston Club, which was known as Galveston’s last speakeasy. In addition to this spring renovation, hotel owner George Mitchell and the Mitchell family completed an $11 million guest room renovation for the 2011 Centennial. The owners replaced the Gulf facing windows throughout the hotel with divided light windows reminiscent of the hotel’s original design and updated all the guest rooms and suites. Additionally, the hotel added a new 9,328 sq. ft. outdoor green space called Centennial Green, which is available to special events and wedding ceremonies. Link to release.

Pathways Spa is privileged to have been able to preserve some traditions from the Ancient Kingdom of Thailand in a selection of natural body treatments for the enjoyment of guests.

World’s Best Spa Expands With Opening of RIMBA Rooftop Spa by Thermes Marins Bali

August 3, 2014 on 11:34 am | In Asia, Beachbooker, Indonesia, Spa Resorts | Comments Off



Goddess Swimwear from Today ShowVoted the World’s Best Spa Resort by Conde Nast Traveler Readers, AYANA Resort and Spa is home to Thermes Marins Bali, renowned for unique treatments and ocean-front spa villas. Now, this iconic spa has expanded with the opening of a Rooftop Spa at RIMBA Jimbaran Bali, within AYANA’s 90-hectare cliff-top gardens.
RIMBA Rooftop Spa by Thermes Marins Bali expands upon the 22,000 square meter wellbeing center at AYANA, adding six rooftop spa rooms to the existing 36 treatment rooms, Spa on the Rocks villas perched amidst the ocean, beauty salon, reflexology lounge, and the world’s largest Aquatonic® Seawater Jet Pool delivering the ancient therapeutic benefits of French thalassotherapy.

While offering the same world-class signature treatments as the spa at AYANA, the RIMBA Rooftop Spa provides a new location for guests to enjoy their wellbeing experience, with a ‘back to nature’ design that differentiates it from AYANA’s traditional Balinese architecture. L

eading interior design consultancy, P49 Deesign in Thailand, was commissioned to create a modern, luxurious haven of tranquility unlike any other spa, maximizing the natural environment and magnificent rooftop views across RIMBA’s gardens, multi-layered pools and out to the ocean.

“The design concept of RIMBA Rooftop Spa is ‘back to nature’,” said Carl Almeida, partner at P49 Deesign. “The layout has been planned in such a way that guests will feel like they are taking an adventure into nature, slowly seeking and entering the hidden forest as they move from the reception area, into the corridor, treatment rooms, and relaxation area.”

P49 Deesign achieved this ‘back to nature’ concept through clever use of materials such as bamboo, warm earthy colors, and design elements like the curving corridor inspired by the shape of a leaf, textured walls reflecting the pattern of tree bark, and floors reflecting the rippled form of water droplets.
To celebrate its opening, RIMBA Rooftop Spa is offering a complimentary Aquatonic Seawater Jet Pool thalassotherapy experience (Treatment time up to 2-hours, valued at Rp399,000++) for all bookings of the following packages:
• Enchanted Forest: 60-minute Aromatic Petal Massage, Body Scrub (sandalwood, hibiscus and frangipani) and Flower Bath.

Total treatment time 100 minutes, Rp2,150,000++ per person

Goddess Swimwear from Today ShowA subtle aroma of peppermint, muted hues of natural stone and wood and the understated elegance of sumptuous surroundings….. The moment you set foot inside Body Temple Spa at Bali’s New Canggu Club, you will feel any tension simply ebb away.

Recently opened and located on the quieter, lower level of the Canggu Club, this is the third and latest offering from Body Temple, with two sister spas already enjoying a steady stream of repeat clientele at Semara Resort Seminyak and Semara Luxury Villa Resort Uluwatu.
With intensive international staff training programs, the highest quality Themae and OPI products and a fully inclusive spa menu encompassing waxing, nail services, unique body treatments, spa packages and event a specifically designed spa menu just for the littlies, Body Temple makes good on its mantra to create an experience unique to you and your needs on any given day.

The spa uses exquisite, all natural and ecocertified tea based products from Themae, a Paris based company priding itself on the professional and stringently controlled development of quality cosmetics holding the promise of results and total wellbeing. As their comprehensive spa menu suggests, Body Temple aims to detox, rejuvenate, relax and energise with body treatments and therapies specifically designed to do just that!

However it is not merely the green, white, red and black tea elixir based balms and locally developed (and 100% edible!) body treatments which provide the basis of this exotic spa experience. Director of Spa and Wellness and one who is clearly passionate about Body Temple’s array of natural treatments and therapies, Genevieve Turgeon explains, “Staff have undergone over 280 hours of training from Themae itself in order to ensure clients receive an holistic experience encompassing age old Asian techniques, elegance of movement and fluidity in each and every treatment”

Expert techniques, well-designed facials, massages and body treatments, unparalleled service and top quality products all combine to create an experience that is unique to you and your needs on a given day.
