Within its first three months since opening, The Spa at The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston has received a Forbes Five Star rating for its essential treatments, first-class service and lavish offerings. It is the only Texas spa rated Five Stars by Forbes and one of 31 in the nation.

“Being the only Forbes Five Star spa in the state is an incredible honor,” says Daisy Tepper, apa director at The Post Oak Hotel. “Tilman had a boundless vision for this spa and our team worked hard to deliver an over-the-top wellness menu with revolutionary experiences that reflected the diverse cultures of Houston.”

The 20,000-square-foot spa offers body scrubs, facial treatments, rituals, massages and exclusive products from Cinq Mondes, Aromatherapy Associates of London and Jacqueline Piotaz. They also offer the latest innovations in skincare techniques including the six-in-one In-Skin facial system that was only available in Los Angeles until now.

The Spa has received glowing reviews from Houstonians and hotel guests for its couple’s suite with en-suite bathtubs and showers, tranquility pools with body-contouring hot stoned daybeds, aromatherapy-infused steam rooms, multi-sensory thermal showers, quiet lounges with zero gravity chairs and more.

The U.S. Travel Association has called the current moment the “Great Travel Depression,” in light of the economic effects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
