The Spa aboard Silver Spirit Voted #1 by Condé Nast Traveler

The Spa on Silver Spirit-Web2 (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.
