Spa Luce is truly an urban oasis. As you push through the rotating door of the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, you immediately notice a change of atmosphere: from chaotic to chill. Elevate up to the fifth floor, enter Spa Luce and journey to a space of even greater relaxation.

The white walls and welcoming layout of the reception area prepare you for what’s to come. Presuming you’re a spa newbie, a great introduction to a life of taking care of yourself (well) is the Spa Luce Custom or Signature Facial. Both are customized for you based on a professional skin analysis.

Get ready to be deeply cleansed and gently exfoliated (most people’s favorite part – finally someone can pick your face without your parents yelling at you). Highlights include a much-needed, rarely received neck, shoulder and arm massage, plus throw in a hydrating hand treatment and anti-aging eye mask (You’re never too young.).

Throughout the entire soothing treatment, your skincare specialist can explain what products they’re using (and what they’re made of that makes them smell so good) and how you can better look after your skin. They can alert you of sun damage or spots that need extra hydration (like the always-troubling circles under the eyes).

Spa Luce also offers massage treatments, “facials” for your bikini area and back, waxing, tinting of lashes and brows, nail therapy, a boutique gallery with skincare and bath products, and after or before your treatment you can dip in the eucalyptus-infused steam rooms and rooftop pool. Be sure to arrive 20 minutes before your treatment so you can take a breather after battling the Hollywood & Highland traffic (human and car) and sip on the refreshing lemon-infused water while lounging in your comfy robe in the stillness of the waiting room.

Spa Luce is located inside the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, on level five. For more information, visit
