rivacy is the keyword. Like many celebrities who stay at the Four Seasons Hotel, spa guests get personal attention. One look at the spa menu confirms celebrity status; nowhere else does lifestyle luminary Kate Somerville meet culinary star Michael Mina. Kate pioneered the field of Paramedical Esthetics at her West Hollywood clinic and helped develop the foundation for Medi-Spa concepts that integrate skin and medical strategies for health and wellness. Your transformation starts with a clinical evaluation of your complexion. The Kate Somerville multi-dimensional strategy for achieving healthy skin incorporates a cleansing facial with patented light therapy, calming spray of pure oxygen, and moisturizer. The skin health experts help you plan a regime for home use and on the road. Spa guests at Four Seasons enjoy the widest range of services in the area. Thai massage is a specialty. Mothers-to-be enjoy pre-natal massage. Personalized programs include access to the members’ whirlpool and locker rooms with grooming amenities, steam room and sauna. Within the eight treatment rooms is a luxurious spa suite, offering total privacy as you enjoy a massage or body treatment, and Jacuzzi bath/shower without leaving your personal oasis. Savor spa cuisine by Four Seasons Executive Chef Douglas Anderson in the sunny lounge, poolside, or outdoors on the terraces. Spending an afternoon or morning together, spa guests gather in robes for lunch. Your personal program can be pre-arranged to include treatments and meals. Treatments with organic skincare products by Naturopathica are exclusive to Four Seasons. For men, the spa offers a barber and shave on request, using ultra-lubricating shaving products by Hommage. The spa boutique stocks Kashwere clothing, men’s gym suits, luxurious bathrobes, shaving kits, and a personal Klean Kanteen for drinking water. The final touch: George’s Salon for hair and nails adjoins the spa. Going green is the new mantra at Four Seasons. Gone are bottled water and paper cups. Fresh-squeezed fruit juice, spring water, tea and coffee are complimentary, along with springwater from dispensers. With a leafy setting and canal views, The Four Seasons Washington provides a serene retreat from busy Pennsylvania Avenue, steps from the worldclass shopping and attractions of Georgetown or a jog along the canal.
