From the moment guests arrive at the new Fairmont Spa Century Plaza, a fully immersive experience awaits. From a sanarium for dry heat relaxation and detoxification to a Himalayan salt room to ease stress and an aromatherapy steam room to stimulate the senses, the spa at the new Fairmont Century Plaza offers relaxation beyond imagination. The spa and wellness program has been carefully crafted by Magdaleena Nikolov—general manager of spa, wellness and retail—along with world-renowned wellness experts including Dr. Oz Garcia—a leading authority on age reversal and healthy aging— and London-based rejuvenation and anti-aging treatment pioneer Dr. Rita Rakus. Technology-driven treatment devices such as Normatec have entered the scene to deliver the most innovative experiences available. “Normatec utilizes dynamic air compression with a patented pulse massage pattern that employs three key techniques: pulsing, distal release and gradients that effectively mimic the muscle pump of the legs and arms,” shares Nikolov. “This technique enhances the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs, relieving muscle aches and pains and increasing circulation.” Those looking to target stress, sleep and mental health can book biohacking sessions co-created by Garcia and Nikolov. “These treatments include a curated sequence of combining elements like infrared technology, neuroscience technology and meditation, all while in an anti-gravity state, bringing the ultimate in mental and physical restoration,” explains Nikolov. From $700 per night, Century City, fairmontcenturyplaza.com/wellness/spa

Located on the fourth floor, all rooms and suites now include Alo Yoga mats, Deepak Chopra meditations, Lather bath amenities, a circadian light system suited for energizing or calming before sleep, water purification in showers and air purification systems—perfect for the health-and wellness-focused guest. The hotel’s award-winning spa offers unique treatments with wellness at the forefront, including BioMeditation therapy, a detoxifying and balancing relaxation that removes conscious and unconscious anxiety. For fitness enthusiasts, the floor’s private fitness suite hosts a Peloton bike, a treadmill, a rowing machine, weights and more. “People love the exclusivity of working out solo or with an expert personal trainer in the new private fitness suite,” says general manager Michael Newcombe, who notes a perk of staying on the Wellness Floor is the ability to book the private gym.
