Regent Seven Seas Explorer which will be one of the most luxury cruise ships ever sail will feature a lavish Canyon Ranch SpaClub.

Debuting at Canyon Ranch SpaClub on deck 10 will be a selection of ultra-luxurious treatments developed by Canyon Ranch in partnership with lifestyle and beauty experts, Red Flower, and premiering exclusively on Seven Seas Explorer before expanding across the fleet.

“With a sophisticated design and featuring exquisite, one-of-a-kind treatments, the Canyon Ranch SpaClub will provide our guests with a tranquil haven for personal enrichment and relaxation,” said Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “We’re building the world’s most luxurious ship and wanted to establish a new standard for spa elegance, and once our vision is complete, the spa aboard Seven Seas Explorer will be the most luxurious at sea.”

Upon entering the Canyon Ranch SpaClub guests transition to a retreat exclusively dedicated to complete relaxation and renewal. The cocoon served as the overarching inspiration for the team at RTKL, interpreted not only abstractly in the spa’s aesthetic details, but also envisioned as a metaphor for the rejuvenation guests experience during their spa visit.

The reception area helps ease guests into a place of greater relaxation, decorated with crisscrossing light-grained wooden bands that evoke the silk wrappings woven into a chrysalis and radiating a warm and welcoming softness. Decorative light fixtures cast small twinkling lights off an abstract Swarovski crystal sculpture, forming dappled reflections on the marble floor to evoke an aura of woodland twilight.

Guests enter the treatment foyer which offers heated loungers with seating surfaces perfectly contoured to promote ergonomic relaxation and to warm the skin and tissue into a deep state of relaxation. Guests are beckoned into one of eight fully equipped treatment rooms where stress and toxins are purged and washed away with one of Red Flower’s signature treatments designed exclusively for Seven Seas Explorer. The Red Flower therapeutic body treatments on Regent Seven Seas will be exclusive to the new ship and then to the entire fleet.

Part of the spa, but located on a private outdoor deck, is an inviting teak-deck terrace filled with plush, partially covered lounge chairs that surround an infinity-edge plunge pool. The pool serves as a dramatic focal point as it contours to the stern of the ship. Guests are treated to incredible views across the sea to the horizon as they soak in the therapeutic waters of the pool.

Adjacent to the spa is a full-service salon with four hair, two manicure and two pedicure stations where guests can receive a little extra personal pampering in preparation for an elegant dinner at one of Seven Seas Explorer’s gourmet restaurants or for a night out on the town during a shore excursion.

From the spa, a dramatic circular staircase transports guest to the fitness center on the deck six. Guests immediately encounter a center with free-weights and weight-lifting machines, along with an impressive collection of cardio workout equipment. The center of the facility offers ample space for cycling, yoga and Pilates classes.

Seven Seas Explorer will be 56,000 gross tons and will make its debut in the summer of 2016. The new vessel comes at a time when the luxury cruise market is expanding including new ships from Viking Cruises.
