NEW ORLEANS (press release) – The Spa at Windsor Court Hotel is getting its own rejuvenation treatment this summer, undergoing renovations that include the expansion of locker rooms, modifications to the relaxation areas and the addition of an extra relaxation and treatment room.
Scheduled for completion in early fall, other updates to The Spa will include new furnishings, lighting and artwork, as well as the addition of infrared saunas, which operate at lower temperatures and use infrared panels instead of conventional heat. Allowing users to experience a more intense sweat at a lower temperature, noted benefits of infrared saunas include detoxification, improved circulation, relaxation, weight loss and pain relief, among others.
“We approached the renovation as an opportunity to put ourselves in our guests’ slippers. Our team considered what guests already value about The Spa, but also how we could improve their experience and enhance our offerings,” said Spa Director Sharla Martin. “The results will be echoed through an energy and vibe that is brighter and modern, further complemented by more functional space.”
In addition to facility renovations, The Spa’s boutique will also introduce two new luxury brands to its already robust selection of products. Most notably, Diptyque, a Paris-based company famous for its face and body care, fragrances and candles, will not only be featured in the spa, but also as the official line of in-room amenities throughout the hotel. HOBO, the luxury leather line celebrated for hand-selected hides and flawless functionality, will also be available in The Spa’s boutique.
A departure from many typical wellness facilities that simply offer the trendiest items, The Spa at Windsor Court features only products that Martin has researched thoroughly and tried for herself. Ingredient quality, name recognition, media coverage, social media followings and reviews are all carefully vetted before she introduces a new product. The Spa’s current product lineup includes Tata Harper, SLIP, Skinceuticals, Mason Pearson and Lunya sleepwear.
The renovations, which began earlier this summer, are being led by Montgomery Roth Architecture & Interior Design. The makeover comes on the heels of a much larger, $15 million property renovation in 2018, which included modernizations of all 316 guestrooms and suites, a refresh to public spaces and the grand opening of the Waterman Poolside Bar.
During renovations, The Spa is offering a slightly limited menu of services and has temporarily relocated to a new part of the 4th floor of the hotel. For appointments and inquiries, call (504) 596-4736.
