Sanítas Vanilla-Bergamot Body Treatment
Length: 60 minutes
Natural Perks: Packed with vitamin B, vanilla contains anti-inflammatory properties and helps improve skin tone.
Details: Products from Littleton-based skin-care company Sanítas anchor this deeply hydrating treatment. A vanilla-bergamot sugar scrub kicks off the session, followed by a heated body wrap and a scalp massage. Consider Sanítas’ vanilla-bergamot body butter the icing on the cake (and you) during the final 25-minute massage.

Organic Seaweed Leaf Wrap
Length: 80 minutes
Natural Perks: Used to treat conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne, seaweed helps naturally smooth and moisturize skin while improving its elasticity. Seaweed also contains antiaging and anti-cellulite properties.
Details: A finely ground seaweed exfoliation removes dead, dry cells before a seaweed body wrap packed with minerals, vitamins, and amino acids helps restore skin. While cocooned, enjoy a relaxing scalp massage.

Candy Cane & Champagne Manicure
Length: 50 minutes
Natural Perks: Champagne contains grapeseed extracts loaded with vitamins C and E and skin-brightening tartaric acid. A natural antiseptic, peppermint helps alleviate stress, combats dry skin, and can reduce pain and relieve sore muscles.
Details: The Ritz extends champagne toasts beyond the glass—all the way to your wrists—with this manicure. After a bubbly and fizzy peppermint soak softens your skin, a sweet-cream sea salt scrub sloughs off the stuff you don’t need. Indulge in a hand massage with whoopie pie–scented lotion (yes, we said whoopie pie) before picking your shade from more than 25 colors.

Length: 50 minutes
Natural Perks: Lavender is a soothing anti-inflammatory herb that calms scalp conditions and promotes relaxation, while antibacterial honey assists with wound healing and reduces blemishes.
Details: Thank the Brown Palace’s rooftop beehive for the honey-lavender ointment being massaged into your tootsies. The honey is extracted from the hive and turned into Bee Royalty lotion (a custom blend found only in the spa). The local concoction serves as the finale following a relaxing lavender foot bath, an exfoliating polish, and a purifying lavender foot mask.
