Inspired by the beauty of its lakeside environment, the neutral, soothing design will feature rich wood tones and natural stone and marble to create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort. Design elements like the neutral textured walls, mosaic tiles, gray oak and pops of deep rich green pay tribute to the natural splendor of the resort’s surroundings.

The comprehensive spa menu features personalized body treatments including body wraps, masks and scrubs, specialized massages that cater to all types of wellness goals and custom-tailored facials. The spa will feature renowned brands including Zents, ESPA, Eminence, Dr. Dennis Gross, Red Flower, London Town and facial treatment service, Glo2Facial. New signature treatments draw inspiration from the elements of earth, water and air, each designed to provide a unique sensory experience and a nod to its lakeside destination.

  1. Forest & Clay Restoration treatment uses a combo clay body scrub and an abstract CBG shroom wrap to draw out impurities, detox the body and ground the mind. While wrapped, guests will enjoy a relaxing scalp, foot and shoulder massage while the body uses natural heat to draw out impurities and hydrate the skin.
  2. Botanical Renewal is an 80-minute treatment designed to stimulate blood flow and invigorate the body through a scent journey that fills the air. This unique wellness journey includes a layering of seven natural and organic floral scents (inspired by Lake Oconee) through a body wash, scrub, soft body buff, nourishing glow, silk cream and mineral foot soak to leave the skin feeling hydrated, light and airy.
  3. Gua Sha Lymphatic Treatment is an 80-minute detoxifying treatment focused on movement and flow inspired by the lakeside destination and aquatic influence, the service starts with a light dry brush to drain lymphatic pathways and then uses a gua sha with magnesium gel to continue movement through the body. The service concludes with a long stroke massage and relaxing water sounds.
  4. Deep Rest Therapy is a 50-minute treatment designed to promote deep rest including a back, neck, scalp and foot massage with relaxing lavender essential oils and an anti-anxiety weighted blanket to slowly induce a deep restful state. Tech is at the forefront of this treatment, with Therabody smart goggles used to receive biofeedback from the body for a heated eye and temple massage for further deep relaxation.

The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee also invites guests to experience holistic wellness activities with a unique rotating schedule including water meditation, lakeside yoga, guided hikes and more wellness-led activities. For a deeper wellness journey, the spa will unveil a dedicated wellness retreat in 2025 for a multiday wellness workshop with curated spa treatments, wellness activities, keynote speakers and more.
