The lowdown: Fancy a facelift minus the incisions, sutures and tons of downtime? Allow us to introduce you to The Standard Spa’s Repairer Energy facial, which improves the skin’s texture and tone through the use of non-invasive micro-currents and Parisian Biologique Recherche products. “It really makes the skin glow and look fantastic!” Spa Director Mina Gough says.
The ‘hood: Nestled on the third floor of The Standard Hotel, the soothing sanctuary is a stone’s throw away from the Venetian Islands.
The vibe: Think sleek and chic — with a heavy dose of holistic happenings. “We believe it’s integral to nurture the inside of the body as well,” Gough says. From acupuncture, yoga, pilates, hydrotherapy, life coaching, hypnosis to juice fasts, the spa covers it all wrapped in a Zen-sational package.
The highlights: Indulge in the Repairer Energy facial ($165 for 60 minutes) with aesthetician Andrea Vieira. “This is our most popular facial because not only is it relaxing, but it’s results driven too,” Vieira says. The added bonus? Spa guests also receive carte blanche to the property’s “adult playground” boasting a pool, hamam (pictured here), Jacuzzi, gym and relaxation lounge.
