Inside, the contemporary spa design showcases ESPA’s signature feature: an uncompromising attention to detail. Inspired by the opposing elements “Fire & Water,” the spa’s palette of deep colors and shimmering details throughout. The stunning six-story spiral staircase, covered in black Cristallino tiles and bordered by a gold mosaic, serves as a focal point of the spa.

The spa’s range of Ayurvedic-influenced treatments use ancient techniques of marma point massage and herbal medicinal oils to treat the body’s Dosha and restore balance to mind, body, and spirit. In addition, ESPA created a selection of highly effective signature treatments specifically for ESPA Riga that includes the use of amber, the precious stone of the Baltic Sea.

Riga is one of the key trading ports of the Baltics and is traditionally known as a trade and business hub between East and West. Leisure travelers enjoy culture, history, breath-taking architecture, and now, world-class spa experiences. As, ESPA’s first stand-alone spa, ESPA Riga is not connected to a hotel, but ESPA’s preferred accommodations are at Reval Hotel Elizabete.
