1. Spa Ojai 

Ojai Valley Inn reopened after completing a $5 million renovation, which included stunning new Spa Penthouse Suites with a modern luxury design. The spa is also opening back up with a renewed outlook on sustainability. The 31,000-square-foot Spa Ojai has 24 treatment rooms, public spaces and two luxurious penthouse guest suites. The new technology and sustainability-forward design allows guests to pass through a tranquil courtyard with a running fountain before entering the spa. Once indoors, visitors will find luxury lockers, new flooring, vanity stations, additional shower space, tiling and lighting throughout the space for a relaxing and peaceful environment. The women's side of the spa includes a dedicated quiet room, and the men's side includes a plunge pool.

Ojai is also debuting a newly expanded serenity lounge with soft, cozy furnishings that complement the warmth of the space. Upon reopening, Spa Ojai also reintroduced its signature Kuyam experience for individuals and small, private groups. This is a Chumash Native American Indian word meaning "a place to rest together," and it is a unique, detoxifying experience that combines therapeutic, self-applied desert clay with essential oils.

4. W Osaka 

W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott Bonvoy's portfolio, showcased the first ever W hotel in Japan, W Osaka. The hotel features a minimalist exterior with colorful interiors, which acts as a nod to the Edo period when excessive displays of wealth were prohibited. Upon arrival, guests enter an illuminated tunnel inspired by the Japanese art forms of origami and kirigami. On the third floor, the hotel features a social hub Living Room. 

On the fourth floor of W Osaka, FIT offers the latest in fitness equipment, as well as a yoga room with a view. WET is the hotel's indoor pool space with an LED ceiling to illuminate and amplify the fun. For guests who live by the brand's 'Detox. Retox. Repeat' philosophy, AWAY SPA allows them to restore and revive with five private treatment rooms. 

5. The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa

In February 2021, the Beverly Hills Hotel Spa reopened its doors after a seven-month extensive refurbishment and redesign. The new design of the spa evokes a sense of serenity while maintaining the playful attitude and chic sensibility that the hotel is known for. Notable changes include the relocation of the reception from its former home in the promenade, allowing for a private check in and check out experience. The retail vitrines are now prominently on display in the promenade filled with luxury spa products, and a relaxation room has been added for guests to enjoy before their treatments. 

The spa has four treatment rooms for body and facial therapies and one duet suite that can accommodate two guests at the same time. The spa also added a nail suite, including two pedicure chairs and a manicure area featuring natural light from the citrus garden. The locker rooms will have steam showers and other spa amenities to help guests unwind and decompress. All treatment tables are equipped with warming heaters and a comfortable cushion system that envelopes the body. The spa includes advanced technology, natural luxurious ingredients and internationally inspired wellness rituals to provide a range of treatments to their guests.
