Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead Unveils New Spa Concept, Spa Menu and Partners for 2020

ATLANTA - Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead is pleased to announce a new spa concept, menu of treatments and partners at its coveted Waldorf Astoria Spa. Paying homage to Atlanta’s reputation as a “city in the forest,” the new spa program invites guests to discover a transformative spa and wellness experience within while enjoying a dose of pampering from new acclaimed luxury partners. 

Inspired by the lush, green canopy that embraces the city, Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead brings the “city in the forest” concept into the experience at the Waldorf Astoria Spa, which is a true oasis offering respite from the rigors of urban living, stress and travel. The new menu of treatments invites guests to cultivate a deeper connection to their surroundings and themselves, encouraging them to travel in the present moment and live life to the fullest. “We are thrilled to unveil our new and environmentally connected spa concept and menu,” says Jessica Shea, Senior Director Spa & Fitness Operations, Americas. “Created with community brands and exceptional global partners, our inspired treatments bring the best of wellness to Atlanta.”      

Among new signature treatments is the Forest Therapy experience, which utilizes a unique essential oil blend by spa partner Aromatherapy Associates of evergreen, pink pepper, cypress and juniper to provide a tension-releasing massage, followed by a warm, grounding mud mask to recharge through hands and feet and a luxurious scalp massage. As part of Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead’s commitment to giving back and preserving the environment and Hilton’s Travel with Purpose corporate responsibility strategy and 2030 environmental goals, proceeds from the Forest Therapy treatment will be donated to Trees Atlanta, a local organization working tirelessly to address Atlanta’s tree loss, protect its forests and create new green space.

Additional new treatments include A Walk in the Woods, offering a personalized journey to discover and address a guest’s specific needs. This full-body treatment combines massage techniques to the desired pressure and body therapies that can include warm stones, exfoliated sea salts and aromatherapy oils.

Alongside the new concept, Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead is delighted to announce new partnerships with several of the spa industry’s leading luxury brands, who bring a series of new advanced skin care therapies, body treatments, nail services and more to the spa experience. Coupled with longstanding partners — Georgia-based Sapelo Skincare and Aromatherapy Associates — new partners include: 

Biologique Recherche

With forty years of excellence, this leading international skincare brand from France has a reputation for astounding effectiveness based on a clinical approach to beauty care using pure, concentrated and raw ingredients, as well as innovative and meticulous protocols and procedures. Bringing its renowned treatments to an Atlanta hotel for the first time, Waldorf Astoria Spa will offer treatments including the Custom Biologique Recherche Facial, a 50- or 80-minute treatment where specially trained therapists analyze each individual’s skin. Tailored, state-of-the-art “skin cocktails” are then formulated for a completely personalized facial that achieves the most effective and immediate results. 


KNESKO SKIN bridges science and spirituality with revolutionary GEMCLINICAL skin care technology. Developed by Reiki Master and company founder Lejla Cas, together with a team of doctors, its serum-infused collagen gel masks use precious gemstones and minerals to activate the Chakras and help rejuvenate skin. Guests of the Waldorf Astoria Spa can enjoy KNESKO Collagen Face Masks as part of a facial enhancement experience. 

Spa Ritual

Founded in 2004 by Shel Pink, Spa Ritual is inspired by clean beauty, spa culture and the art of self-care. Spa Ritual is a sustainable, vegan beauty brand. As part of the new spa menu, guests can partake in Spa Ritual’s Sound of Color Manicure or Pedicure, which begins with a fragrant breathing ritual to calm the body for meditation and introspection. The technician will then introduce The Sound of Color iPod device that includes a meditation session guided by a guest’s nail color of choice for an integration of beauty, health and wellness. 

Deborah Lippman

Celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippman has created some of the healthiest and most luxurious hand and foot care products in the fashion business, including the innovative alternative to gel manicures, Gel Lab Pro. Guests of the Waldorf Astoria Spa can opt for a Deborah Lippman Manicure, which includes a whipped marshmallow hand scrub and shea butter, avocado hand cream, or a Deborah Lippman Pedicure, which includes a sugar and sea salt self-heating scrub and a nourishing acai and kokum butter foot cream.
