The best spa treatments for men
While some men are still apprehensive about visiting the spa, more and more are embracing it! In-the-know men understand that the spa is not just about indulgence but about feeling good and taking care of themselves. Popular choices include facials, massages, body scrubs and stretching treatments, so we’ve highlighted some of the best resorts in Mauritius for spa-loving men to seek out…
According to Angsana Balaclava, their best treatment for men is the Angsana massage, which lasts a full 90 minutes followed by 30 minutes of refreshments and relaxation. The massage was created exclusively for Angsana Spa and works on the body’s key pressure points to strengthen inner ‘qi’ or energy, releasing muscle tension to leave you feeling restored and revived.
Sun Ambre Resort
Ambre Resort’s C-Plus energy treatments are a particular favourite with its male guests. The Detoxifying and Revitalizing Facial works with pure vitamin C to restore loss of energy and vitality in men’s skin, whilst eliminating toxins. It strengthens the skins defences against pollution, stress and free radicals.
Alizee Resorts caters for both men and women’s sense of well being, with the Vitality Facial especially designed for men. The treatment decongests and visibly reduces redness, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple with a fresh and luminous complexion.
One & Only Le Saint Géran
For men, One&Only Le Saint Géran strongly recommend the 120 minute ESPA Stressbuster body treatment. Designed to relax the body and mind, this holistic treatment begins with a body exfoliation before the placing of stones along vital energy points of the body. This is followed by a full body massage using carefully selected essential oils and hot stones to release tight muscles, followed by an acupressure head massage. The complete treatment ends with gentle stretching to help release deep tensions in the neck and shoulders.
Sofitel So Mauritius
Sofitel So Mauritius suggests the four-hand technique So Hibiscus massage, or an original ‘Bois Chéri” intensive anti-aging facial treatment using locally-grown tea from the Bois Chéri Tea Plantation. Or go all out with the 60 minute 4 Teas Ceremony; an all-over treatment that combines body massage with a hydrating facial, also using different teas from Bois Chéri.
According to LUX* Resorts & Hotels, men prefer the Thai-style treatments which use deep pressure and stretching to improve flexibility and joint soreness. LUX* Resorts & Hotels also offer a specialised men’s facial featuring their own signature products that rehydrate the skin and leave it looking refreshed and revitalised.
The 60-minute Givenchy Man Facial is a specific treatment for men whose skin needs to combat stress, too much sun or the overall ravages of time. The treatment combines light textures with highly effective super-concentrated formulas to provide maximum results, and according to Le Touessrok’s experienced therapists, it’s Givenchy Spa’s best treatment for men – so take the time to re-ignite your good looks.
