Yes, I believe they are still in Aman Spa Connaught, but they have never been in FS London, which uses The Organic Pharmacy as its chemical-free option. FS 10 Trinity has Amala as its chemical-free option.

Le Meridien Seoul (ex-RC Seoul) is using Dauphin products at their new spa. Don't recommend going there for a while as the whole property SHOULD NOT be open!! Unfinished rooms, dusty construction smell and teething staff problems.

This is all very out of my wheelhouse, but based on my visit today of Aman Sveti Stefan's spa, they are still using Sodashi products.

Some of those old Sodashi-Aman products must be past their use-by date by now, surely?

How is Jena's signature facial?

Not really liking MO Marrakech's lineup

Relaxing and Rejuvenating: Spa, Swimming Pools and More at the new FS Kuwait

At the heart of the two-storey wellness complex is the Spa at Four Seasons – a temple of indulgence and results-oriented therapies offered in ten treatment rooms plus two bath suites. Spa Director Melissa Rodriguez is particularly excited to introduce the ancient Greek practice of psammo therapy to discerning Four Seasons guests: “Our unique beds of fine alpha-quartz sand envelop guests in warm sand, melting tensions away and promoting total comfort. We also have a private hammam for Turkish-style bathing rituals.”

An extensive spa menu offers custom treatments featuring MCCM, Sodashi and Biologique Recherche products, and there’s even a selection created just for young adults, while other treatments are specifically tailored for men.
Nice to see them keeping up the Sodashi front!

Best Spa experiences I have had in Marrakech were at FS Marrakech. Although not my favourite chemical-free brand, they do have ILA facials and the therapists are very good indeed.

@sydakllon

I'd be inclined to give my vote to FS Marrakech too. The former regional director of spa put a lot of heart and soul into that spa. Everything is spectacular there.

Of course it doesn't come as a surprise I would vote for FS Marrakech as well... try ILA's Gold Facial.

FS Marrakech is currently interim managed in the Spa, and will soon see a new menu. Stay tuned...

It's okay... avoid Jena Spa for now until new spa is built.

MO Marrakech has a typical MO line up... not too interesting, but Nectarome is OK! FS Marrakech has Nectarome amenities for the villas and special guests. Quite fond of them (although not 100% chemical-free, much better than most).

I don't.

Years ago, FS had Dr Hauschka, which was very good, but these days, the best you can find is Amala at MO NY. The Spa at The Greenwich is quite nice, but they use Red Flower, which is not entirely chemical-free.

I second that... my spa experiences in NYC are limited to MO and Park Hyatt. Park Hyatt has had a strange concept with massage tables full of sand. Can you imagine? They abandoned that concept a while ago and now stick to their odd 'atelier spa' marketing nonsense.

The spa at MO NY is quite good, but I don't associate NY with spas in general.
