Experience Bliss at the Spa at Four Seasons Houston
Airy and bright, the spa at the Four Seasons Houston takes the fine art of relaxation to an entirely new level. A sense of tranquility is immediate, thanks to the calm lighting and simple layout. My partner and I took the opportunity to indulge in a variety of treatments from the property’s diverse menu of beauty services.
My wonderfully skilled nail technician, Chloe Di Leo, treated my hands as if they were her own during my Signature State Pedicure. Gentle essential oils were applied before my skin was thoroughly exfoliated. A rich, creamy mask felt positively regal; I could practically feel my skin soaking up the moisture.
Up next: a Healing Hot Stone Pedicure. Hot stone treatments are nothing new to the spa world, but I was a virgin to the experience. The therapy eases muscle stiffness, reduces tension and even boosts spirits. Chloe applied pleasantly warm stones to my feet, massaging with just the right amount of pressure. The light pace and serene movements felt almost hypnotic after a while.
My boyfriend especially enjoyed the Classic State Pedicure. A soak in reviving sea salts, combined with hyper-moisturizing essential oils, left his tired feet supple and remarkably smoother. Again, Chloe’s treatment was blissful and precise. During his Relaxing Massage, masseuse Jamie expertly applied aromatic chamomile and geranium essential oils to his skin, followed by an oversize hot towel to lock in the moisture. Gentle strokes, combined with focused attention to his head, shoulders and back, left him in a state of utter placidity.
The spa alone stands out for its refined air and subtle extravagance, and there’s something wonderful to be said for a place that leaves you feeling infinitely relaxed as you head back home. (And yes, we're already planning our next visit.)
