Tales of Cleopatra’s beauty have survived since her reign in Ancient Egypt. The Nile Ritz-Carlton Spa in Cairo borrows from the queen’s use of natural ingredients, adding luxury touches to her already decadent rituals. A soothing milk foot-bath, a sea-salt exfoliation and a warming mineral-rich mud cocoon are among the signature experiences at this hotel spa. Treatments include innovative facials, classic massages and purposeful body wraps. Of the nine treatment rooms, one is reserved for couples.
