This month marks the opening of the newest and largest full-service spa in the U.S. Virgin Islands -- Journeys Spa at Wyndham Sugar Bay Beach Club & Resort in St. Thomas.

The $1.5 million, two-level facility will be the first spa in the USVI to offer hydrotherapy treatments. To commemorate the opening of the spa, the resort will officially change its name to Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa.

The April 29, 2002 opening of the Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park South included the introduction of the La Prarie at the Ritz-Carlton Spa. The Swiss skincare company now offers New Yorkers a variety of spa treatments to address what Lynne Florio, president of the new spa, says is the "great American craving for the perfect spa."

The Sports Club Company, Inc. recently signed a lease to develop a new Sports Club/LA in Beverly Hills, California. The planned 40,000 sq. ft. club will offer a number of spa services, including massage, facials, and full-body treatments, as part of a "destination cityspa."
