Canyon Ranch Becomes Spa of Choice for Oceania CruisesJune 26, 2009 By: David Eisen
Canyon Ranch is expanding its brand on the high seas. Already the spa operator for Cunard Line, Canyon Ranch will now design and operate the spa, beauty salon, wellness and fitness facilities on Oceania Cruises' Marina, which is set to debut in late 2010, and on its three sister ships by September.
Canyon Ranch SpaClub will have 16 massage, body and skin-care treatment rooms, a gym and weight room with more than 50 pieces of cardio and weight training equipment, a juice bar, men's and women's locker rooms, thalassotherapy pool, two whirlpools and Thermal Suite.
Later this year, Canyon Ranch SpaClub will debut fleet-wide on Marina's sister ships Regatta, Insignia and Nautica.
"We wanted to bring this world-renowned experience to the guests on our existing ships as soon as possible as it presented us with the perfect opportunity to enhance our acclaimed product and further the evolution of our brand," said Bob Binder, president of Oceania Cruises.
Oceania Cruises will also feature culinary offerings from Canyon Ranch's Spa Cuisine, which will be available at breakfast, lunch and dinner in both the Grand Dining Room and Terrace Café.
Canyon Ranch SpaClub will incorporate unique water features throughout, emphasizing the healing and therapeutic benefits of water and heat. A thalassotherapy pool will feature airbed recliner lounges, neck fountains, deluge waterfall, air tub and body massage jet benches.
Adjacent to the pool will be an extensive co-ed Thermal Suite featuring an herbal sauna, Finnish sauna, reflexology basins and an aromatic steam room. Also onboard will be the Rasul Ceremony, a Canyon Ranch SpaClub signature treatment, which incorporates medicinal mud and steam.
