We know a place where you can experience some of the greatest flavors in Ecuador: chocolate, coconut, coffee, honey, wine, and grapes.  They are part of a menu that can be savored alone or shared with your companion.  And though they are all delicious, they are not for eating, but for enjoying in a way you could never experience in a restaurant.

The Amrita Spa, located inside Swissôtel Quito, offers a complete, restorative experience for the mind and body using an array of therapies and treatments, some of which derive their curative powers from culinary products, while others utilize manipulative applications such as reflexology and oriental and effleurage techniques.

Amrita, which in the Sanskrit language means “Elixir of Eternal Youth,” has a menu of treatments grouped according to customer needs.

Amrita’s ceremonial packages combine massages with natural and nourishing products, as well as other treatments such as facials and hydrotherapy. 

Chocotherapy is a treatment that offers tranquilizing effects that nourish the skin using one of nature’s richest compositions, the cocoa seed.

Coffee therapy is a novel massage that envelopes the body in coffee, a natural exfoliate, removing dead cells and maintaining fresh and soft skin.  

A similar process is undergone for those who want the Grape Cloak treatment.  Exfoliation, cleansing, and body reaffirmation are achieved using an exclusive grape mantle, followed by a relaxation massage utilizing a thermal blanket to eliminate toxins and fats.

All treatments, by nature, help to take away the tension of daily life, but a special menu of anti-stress therapies are tailored to specific needs.  Additionally, day spas, ranging from three and a half to five hours, encompass a variety of therapies, treatments, and massages, all with the goal of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Amrita, recognizing the healing power of togetherness, also offers packages for couples. Love’s Symphony begins with a massage in a rose petal bath in an exclusive VIP room, followed by exfoliation, body moisturizing, hot rock therapy, and reflexology.  Nuptial Therapy starts off with a rich, chocolate body wrap, moves on to body exfoliation and a relaxing massage with effleurage techniques combined with essential oils.

In the area of cosmetology Amrita offers dozens of facial cleanings, skin hydration and anti-aging treatments, some specially designed for men.  

One of the most popular therapies at Amrita is the Hot Stone Therapy, a series of massages using hot volcanic stones applied to the body’s energy points to increase energy and obtain profound relaxation.  This treatment is complemented with chromo-therapy and aroma-therapy. 

Finally, Swissôtel Quito offers not just relaxation through Amrita Spa, but also invigoration with their gymnasium and wellness center.  Enjoy a game of squash, squash, racquetball, or tennis or take a swim in the pool.  Afterwards the whirlpool, sauna, and polar pool offer a way to refresh and restore the muscles following your workout.
