Georgetown Oasis of Wellness
Spas & Wellness
Overlooking the historic C&O Canal in Georgetown,
The Four Seasons Hotel harbors an oasis of wellness
and beauty. Enter from a secluded courtyard, and
feel the energy. The look is upscale health club; rows
of treadmills and bikes with canal view. But beyond

the relaxation lounge is a newly expanded spa
unique to Washington.

P rivacy is the keyword. Like many celebrities who stay at the Four
Seasons Hotel, spa guests get personal attention. One look at the
spa menu confirms celebrity status; nowhere else does lifestyle luminary
Kate Somerville meet culinary star Michael Mina. Kate pioneered the
field of Paramedical Esthetics at her West Hollywood clinic and helped
develop the foundation for Medi-Spa concepts that integrate skin and
medical strategies for health and wellness.
Your transformation starts with a clinical evaluation of your

Spa guests at Four Seasons enjoy the widest range of services
in the area. Thai massage is a specialty. Mothers-to-be enjoy pre-natal
massage. Personalized programs include access to the members’
whirlpool and locker rooms with grooming amenities, steam room and
sauna. Within the eight treatment rooms is a luxurious spa suite, offering
total privacy as you enjoy a massage or body treatment, and Jacuzzi
bath/shower without leaving your personal oasis.

Spending an afternoon or morning together, spa guests gather in
robes for lunch. Your personal program can be pre-arranged to include
treatments and meals.
Treatments with organic skincare products by Naturopathica are
exclusive to Four Seasons. For men, the spa offers a barber and shave
on request, using ultra-lubricating shaving products by Hommage. The
spa boutique stocks Kashwere clothing, men’s gymsuits, luxurious
bathrobes, shaving kits, and a personal Klean Kanteen for drinking water.
The final touch: George’s Salon for hair and nails adjoins the spa.
Going green is the new mantra at Four Seasons. Gone are bottled
water and paper cups. Fresh-squeezed fruit juice, spring water, tea and
coffee are complimentary, along with springwater from dispensers. With a
leafy setting and canal views, The Four Seasons Washington provides a
serene retreat from busy Pennsylvania Avenue, steps from the world-
class shopping and attractions of Georgetown or a jog along the canal.
