In the serene embrace of Hakone’s natural splendor, the esteemed Hyatt Regency Hakone Resort and Spa has unveiled a refreshed Spa IZUMI treatment menu on November 1, 2023.
Ideally located at the base of the majestic Mt. Fuji, this luxurious retreat resides in the heart of Japan’s famed hot-spring district, providing a tranquil escape merely 90 minutes from Tokyo’s bustling center and offering convenient bullet train access to western Japan, including the historical city of Kyoto.
The rejuvenated spa menu is a tribute to the region’s stunning landscapes and the therapeutic hot springs that Hakone is celebrated for. Among the novel additions is the “Onsen Leg Relief,” a treatment that transcends the typical spa service by leveraging the therapeutic qualities of the Owakudani hot springs.
This innovative offering utilizes the sulfuric spring water, rich in sodium, to alleviate leg swelling and fatigue often associated with long-distance travel. Through wraps drenched in this mineral-infused water, applied from feet to thighs, guests will experience the dual benefits of thermal therapy and sodium absorption, promoting circulation and rejuvenation.
For a more secluded and personal wellness experience as opposed to public bathing, this treatment is an ideal choice, especially for visitors looking to soothe the strains of extensive travel.
In addition to the Onsen Leg Relief, the spa’s hallmark Fruitherapy session has been transformed to incorporate organic elements, featuring a scrub redolent of local citrus and pads packed with brown rice and fruit leaf essences. This treatment is designed to unlock the body’s innate restorative capabilities, fostering damage repair and cellular renewal.
Spa IZUMI prides itself on being a comprehensive spa with eight generously proportioned treatment rooms, which include a pair of rooms for couples. The facility also boasts a tranquil relaxation room, gender-separated onsen baths, and changing areas.
The hot springs on the property are fed by Ōwakudani, offering sulfate springs with slightly acidic properties acclaimed for their beauty-enhancing benefits and heat-retaining characteristics that augment the spa treatments.
Rooted at the foot of the Gora mountains, Hyatt Regency Hakone Resort and Spa is recognized among Japan’s premier hot spring destinations. The hotel extends heartfelt hospitality reminiscent of a welcoming home, with 80 expansive guestrooms starting at 56 square meters, options for pet-friendly accommodation, and an inviting Living Room with a warming log fireplace.
The resort also features Dining Room – Western Cuisine, Dining Room – Sushi, a private dining area, and the distinguished Spa IZUMI, complemented by spacious onsen baths for the ultimate relaxation experience.
