NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – March 27, 2019 – This week, The Spa at Pelican Hill® unveils a newly designed collection of customizable therapies for both locals and guests of The Resort at Pelican Hill®. Fresh treatment protocols, top product lines and the latest spa technologies heighten the spa experience at Newport Beach’s only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa.

“The Spa recently marked a decade since opening, and this moment feels right to mindfully evolve our offerings with new ingredients, products and therapies,” said Pelican Hill Managing Director Tom Donovan. “Most of the menu features brand new massages, body therapies, facials and salon services, while a handful of popular legacy treatments like Body Gelato, Coastal Renewal and Global Traditions now feature subtle enhancements.”

Among the most luxurious and effective new treatments available, The Spa features:

Zen Awakening Experience
Our most indulgent body therapy treatment features a luxuriously customized and blended aroma journey with a full-body sea salt and shea butter scrub, ultra-hydrating quench body wrap, hot oil scalp ritual and full-body massage.

Awaken + Glow Facial
Created by Uma specially for The Spa at Pelican Hill, this ancient yet revolutionary technique uses pure Ayurvedic ingredients and Marma point therapy to release stagnant energy and reveal lit-from-within skin.

HydraFacial™ with Naturopathica
Technology meets nature with this cutting-edge treatment for all skin types using HydraFacial™ technology. Our 50-minute treatment includes one HydraFacial™ custom booster and your choice of targeted eye or lip treatment. Our 80-minute treatment adds lymphatic drainage, LED light therapy and Hydrafacial PERK™ (your choice of lip or eye treatment.) to the 50-minute treatment.

Additional specialty treatments include a new Prenatal Care massage, a Couples Massage experience and a Golfer’s Tune-Up Massage that uses HyperVolt™ therapy to loosen joints, relieve inflammation and reduce pain. Also debuting on the revamped menu, serum-infused Knesko™ Gel Mask add-ons for eyes, lips and décolleté enhance any massage, body therapy, facial or salon service.
