Santa Barbara’s newest luxury property, Hotel Californian, has unveiled its new Moroccan-inspired spa concept, Majorelle. Having just opened in September, Hotel Californian is located adjacent to the city’s vibrant Funk Zone and steps from the Pacific Ocean and the Amtrak Station.
Under the supervision of talented Spa Director Emma Spencer, the 2,500-square-foot Majorelle at Hotel Californian, features an exotic, geometric blue-and-white tile lounge, together with four treatment rooms including one couples suite, steam rooms, an expanded fitness center and manicure and pedicure stations as well as waxing and reflexology services. In addition, Majorelle’s staff offers blowouts, updos and professional makeup application. The name Majorelle was inspired from the distinctively Moroccan blue found in the traditional tiles, windows, and doorways of Marrakech, which evokes a sense of active tranquility.
“Majorelle is a thoughtful concept that was designed with intention and passion,” said Spencer. “For weddings, we’re a gorgeous setting for the bride and bridal party to gather and for hotel guests, we’re a relaxing retreat destination with unique wellness options offered in a comfortable environment.”
Majorelle is focused on personalization and allowing each guest to enjoy a unique treatment and experience. Guests can awaken their senses in customized full-body treatments including:
TRIBUTE | BODY RITUAL - 2 hrs. / $380
For those that desire an experience that is both authentic and truly personalized, the Tribute begins with aromatherapy design in which the guest guides the creation of a signature essential oil product based on numerology or a desired outcome. The custom blend is then applied during a deeply nourishing scrub, wrap and massage with the medicinal benefits of a personalized aromatherapy. Following the treatment, guests leave with their product to continue care at home.
Coordinating the therapeutic benefits of topical and ingestible herbal remedies, a collection of specialized massages paired with beverages of infused teas, tinctures and honeys address common 21st century ailments. Guests are able to choose a pathway to enhanced Vitality:
Reduced physical and mental stress
Improved vitality and detoxification
Muscle ache and pain relief
Brighter, healthier skin
Majorelle also unveils an inspiring treatment menu featuring Body Bliss aromatherapy-based products and Naturopathica’s Ecocert skincare, made with proven natural ingredients and clean actives that nourish the skin and delight the senses. The spa offers a carefully curated collection of luxurious treatments inclusive of purifying facials, invigorating body treatments and soothing massages.
Beyond the confines of the spa, seamless integration of wellness is facilitated at the property through evening soirees, wellness events and lectures, upgraded amenities, rooftop yoga and fitness classes, mediation and innovative wedding packages as well as in-room massage and bath butler.
