 The Signature Treatment

The Hamman Ritual (80 minutes, $329) is by far the most popular treatment at The Spa at Condado Vanderbilt. The Spa is the only location in Puerto Rico offering the ritual of the Hamman which is an unprecedented experience weaving ancient purification rituals with modern techniques to help you connect with your inner self. Spa Director Dagmarie Sanchez describes the treatment in perfect detail.

“Starting with personal olive oil soap, Kessa mitt and Pestemal cloth —an authentic Turkish bath towel —in which to wrap you. Rest on the heated marble table and allow our expert therapist to exfoliate your body. Enjoy water cascading down your body as impurities are rinsed away, then rest on the warm marble table as showers of moisturizing bubbles rain upon you and a subtle spray of rosewater refreshes your senses. Finish in a hydro-sensorial rain shower to delight in a cooling mist, a Caribbean storm, and summer rain.”


Attracting new clients and encouraging clients to revisit is an easy task at the Vanderbilt Spa. Many travelers visit the Spa because it is the only spa that offers the Hamman Ritual on the island of Puerto Rico. “It’s artfully personalized and guests have a different, yet always equally powerful experience every time,” Sanchez explains. In addition to the Hamman, the spa also offers unique, on-trend treatments that help guests transition between seasons or those looking for a new experience. The spa focuses on distributing timely and seasonal offers through email marketing as well as sharing them on the hotel’s social media.

“After satiating all of the senses, the true treasure lies in the treatments rooms, where healing therapies transform guests into a renewed sense of wellbeing.”
