Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest Launches New Spa Treatment Featuring Omorovicza Skincare. Experience results-oriented new treatment at The Spa, to enjoy in summer.

          

Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest is enhancing its menu with a new Spa treatment using Hungarian luxury spa cosmetics Omorovicza.

Omorovicza’s story began more than 2,000 years ago when the therapeutic properties of Hungary’s thermal waters and thermal mud were first discovered and the world renowned baths were built. Today, Omorovicza harnesses this ancient health and beauty phenomenon with Mineral Cosmetology and takes natural, anti-ageing skincare to a new level.

Gold Sugar Scrub - the Ideal Holiday Skin Smoother

This luminous Omorovicza treatment begins with an invigorating golden sugar body polish, followed by a soothing massage performed with aromatic ylang-ylang oil enriched with shimmering gold particles. Guaranteed to leave the body soft, smooth and hydrated, this treatment is perfect for that special occasion when one wants to look their radiant best.

With gold particles, cane sugar and ylang-ylang, this sugar body scrub gently eliminates dead skin cells and refines the texture of the skin, leaving it radiant and soft. Skin looks as goods as it feels with this exquisite luminous shimmer oil with light reflecting gold particles. Absorbing quickly, it restores and repairs tired, dry and damaged skin leaving one silky smooth and luminous.

“I am confident that our guests are going to be pleasantly surprised if not deeply impacted, by the way our new Gold Sugar Scrub treatment imparts such a profound sense of luminous rejuvenation.” says Spa Manager Zsofia Hellinger.

The existing Spa menu presents treatments based on local traditions, such as Hungarian Moor Mud Therapy or the Classic Hungarian Body Wrap.

Inspired by Budapest’s ancient spa traditions, Four Seasons Gresham Palace Budapest dedicates its entire top floor to a superlative Spa and Health Club. The Spa features seven treatment rooms, including a couples' suite, a unisex sauna, separate steam rooms for men and women, an infinity-edge lap pool and a whirlpool. Separate locker facilities for men and women, and fitness centre complement the relaxing Spa experience.

The Spa is open from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm daily to Hotel and non-Hotel guests. The Gold Sugar Scrub is available for HUF 26,000 for 30 minutes.

For reservations, call +36 (1) 268-5500 or book online.
