Grand Hyatt Taipei Opens Luxury Spa

Twenty-six years after openings its doors, the Grand Hyatt Taipei has finally opened a spa.

The treatment menu features a variety of body scrubs and wraps, custom facials, massages, as well as a selection of two or three-hour signature journeys each designed to Calm, Revive, Heal and Renew depending on the guests needs.

Products by US skincare brand Kerstin Florian are incorporated throughout.

The Oasis Spa features three treatment rooms, including a couples suite, heated thermal baths, steam and sauna rooms, and a cold plunge pool, in addition to separate mens and womens relaxation lounges equipped with reclining leather armchairs.

Taiwan is famous for its geothermal hot springs located on the outskirts of the capital, said Sammy Carolus, the hotels General Manager. Visitors can now take advantage of our luxurious spa retreat and therapeutic plunge pools without having to venture out of Taipei city.

One of the spas signature experiences, Calm, uses moor mud from Hungary's Heviz Lake, the largest mineral lake in the world. The 180-minute treatment includes a therapeutic moor mud body wrap to promote circulation and release toxins, a Swedish-style deep tissue massage to knead away aches and pains, followed by a moisturizing moor mud mask to lift, firm and hydrate the skin.

Moor mud is an excellent way to detoxify and de-stress the skin, especially after a long haul flight. The mineral-rich, black mud was first used by ancient Romans for its unique healing properties. Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker are all huge fans, said Vicky Wu, the hotels spa manager.
