Remède Spa at the St. Regis Hotel is not just a mere addition to the list of spas in San Francisco. It is the best thing you can do for your appearance, not to mention your state of mind. Just one step into the lavish surroundings and Champagne and truffles arrive. Then the customised, personalised pampering begins. Some spas have a way of inducing anxiety rather than erasing it by tacking on extra fees with every “suggested” ointment. Not so chez Remède. One fee includes a professional’s expert assessment of your needs as the treatment progresses. The approach is strictly high-end, state-of-the-art skin care-treatments include customised deep-cleansing facials, indulgent body treatments, relaxing massages, precision waxing and nail treatments, body bronzing, and more. Pampering here is straight up posh with chilled Champagne, plush throw blankets, and complimentary truffles from NYC chocolatier Jaques Torres. While the design is modern minimalist, the clientele is more opulent. Remède sPA draws San Fran’s socialite set as well as travelling celebs, so you can expect to relax alongside the rich and famous. No need to pack all of your toiletries: The women’s lounge is stocked with primo shower and skincare products from Laboratoire Remède.
