White House

Hollywood, CA, has long enjoyed a reputation for being an epicenter of innovative design and creative vision. With the debut of Spa Luce, a 6,400-square-foot luxury boutique beauty destination, you can chalk up another winner for the city.

Situated in the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, a stone's throw away from the Kodak Theatre—home to the Academy Awards—Spa Luce's interiors boast an evocative palette of textures, surfaces and tonal subtleties, including hand-chiseled Jerusalem stone, smooth petrified wood, sleek teak wood surfaces and gently undulating sweeps of stucco walls, reminiscent of Santorini, Greece or Capri, Italy. The result is a mood-enhancing ambiance for soothing 21st century souls.

Luxurious and relaxing treatments that are ideal for both the spa beginner and seasoned veteran further set Spa Luce apart. Signature treatments include the Japan Ritual, a five-part massage treatment layering the therapeutic properties of flower oils and fruit essences with rich minerals from the earth and sea; and the Hammam Ritual, where spa-goers undergo a five-step process that includes an intense cleansing with Moroccan mint tea and silt and then a vigorous scrub with coffee, olive stones and fresh lemons.
