As you have already read I am a huge fan of Four Seasons Silicon Valley. What’s not to love it’s literally an hour drive from San Francisco and is a Four Seasons in Southern California. You’re speaking my language.
During my recent stay I had the privilege of enjoying a visit to Four Seasons Spa to experience their Espresso Limón Slimming Wrap: This detoxifying and firming treatment is guaranteed to leave your body looking sleek and smooth. It begins with a body brushing to stimulate lymphatic drainage and detoxification followed by a house-made crushed espresso bean exfoliation. A European inspired Espresso Limón Slimming Oil is then applied to purify and tone the body.

Enjoying some sunbathing by the pool before my treatment. One of the perks of the Spa (for non-hotel guests) is the acess to the fabulous rooftop pool. I was a hotel guest so enjoyed the pool on the first day of my arrival and day two (pre spa).
Relaxing in the lounge pre spa treatment.
The treatment room has two beds, one for the first portion of the treatment where you are scrubbed and massaged and the second bed where the wrap treatment is applied and you’re wrapped in a tinfoil-esque blanket (similar to what runners wear to stay warm after a marathon) and a heated bed. This treatment was definitely like nothing I’ve ever done and I loved both the relaxing element of it (the message) and also the impactful tightening benefits the wrap provides.
Pre treatment views. These are all the goodies used in my Espresso Limón Slimming Wrap treatment. Stay tuned as this treatment has resulted in guests losing up to 5 inches off their bodies.
Before the slimming gels are applied I was scrubbed with these two brushes to move all the dead skin so the treatment can penetrate deeply. As much it doesn’t sound relaxing to be scrubbed it was. It was gentle enough that it felt like a massage/rub and then my skin was ready for the slimming treatment to deeply penetrate. Bring it on!
After the scrub, I switched beds and rested on another massage table where I was rubbed with the slimming treatment and wrapped in a tinfoil type of material (similar to what runners wear after a long race). This was super soothing. During the 20 minutes, or so as the treatment penetrated I received a neck, head and shoulder massage. Literally there wasn’t a moment that I wasn’t being rubbed, scrubbed, massaged or pampered. This treatment is out of this world!
Deep in rest and all smiles…
Upon concluding the treatment you’re guided back to the relaxation room for either an espresso or a glass of sparkling wine. I was really feeling the healthy day experience so opted for the coffee (surprising, right? I was even surprised I was able to refuse a glass of Champagne).
This was my first time seeing something like this in a spa relaxation room and I loved it! Although I didn’t get a chance to color I think this is such a great idea. Kudos to Four Seasons Silicon Valley for sharing this with their guests. I’ll be sure to color next time….
Thanks to Four Seasons Silicon Valley for my hosted hotel, dining and spa stay. As always I only write about experiences, hotels and meals I enjoy and believe are amazing experiences I want my readers to know about and hopefully experience themselves.
