The Spa aboard Silver Spirit Voted #1 by Condé Nast Traveler
(21 May 2012) The Spa aboard Silversea's Silver Spirit
was chosen by the readers
of Condé Nast Traveler
as the top spa at sea in the US magazine's 2012 Spa Poll. Silver Spirit
was the only
ship to score a perfect 100 for its treatments. The results are published in
the magazine's June issue.
Ellen Bettridge, Silversea's
president of the Americas, said: "We are delighted to receive this accolade.
The Spa aboard Silver Spirit was
designed to be
the ultimate retreat for relaxation and rejuvenation. This award is validation that we are succeeding
in providing a spa experience of unsurpassed quality, and one that we hope will
foster a truly holistic sense of balance and well-being for our guests."
At 8,300 square feet (770 square metres), The Spa aboard Silver Spirit is a sanctuary of pure bliss, featuring floor-to-ceiling
windows, nine treatment rooms, indoor/outdoor relaxation areas, and an outdoor
whirlpool. Guests may indulge in a wide range of restorative therapies
including facials, body wraps, massages and acupuncture. The ceramic-tiled
Thermal Suite is an exclusive spa area furnished with heated lounge chairs.
With its connecting private Hammam (Turkish bath) Chamber, it serves as the
setting for the Private Hammam Experience, one of several unique Silver Spirit treatments.
The Spa is
operated by Steiner Leisure Limited, a leading provider of spa services.
Condé Nast Traveler's 2012 Spa Poll results were derived from its 2011
Readers' Choice survey. Spas were rated excellent, very good, good, fair, or
poor on three criteria: Spa Facilities, Spa Staff, and Spa Treatments.
