How To Create A Luxury Hotel Spa Experience At Home
Aman’s constellation of properties take inspiration from their unique locales; think Amangiri in Utah’s otherworldly desert aesthetic, Aman Kyoto’s modern approach to zen, or Amandari’s ethereal earthiness that blends seamlessly into the lush Balinese jungles of Ubud.
Similarly, beauty and wellness products by Aman draw on nature and ancient wisdom to soothe, heal and transport you to another time and place.
Aman offers self-care at home in three parts: Aman Skincare, a full range of oils, serums, face mists and masks; a trio of candles, each inspired by an Aman destination; and SVA, a collection of supplements that combine traditional, holistic healing with contemporary science.
We particularly love the Purifying Quartz Scrub, which combines quartz and kombu; and the Nourishing Jade Mask, a protein- and collagen-rich treatment that reduces fine lines and restores skin tone.

The Ritz Carlton
Smell is the sense most closely tied to memory, and Ritz-Carlton’s collection of home fragrances might just be your ticket to reliving moments at your favourite property—a romantic anniversary at The Ritz-Carlton, Central Park or a balmy night at The Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage, perhaps.
Featuring candles, room sprays and reed diffusers, each scent is unique to a Ritz-Carlton destination. 50 Central Park for example, smells of elderflower, black tea and ripe strawberries. Black Orchid’s mix of florals and spices was specially designed for its Hong Kong and Shanghai properties. Ocean Mirage, with notes of bergamot citrus and oakmoss, is inspired by The Ritz-Carlton, Bal Harbour Miami.
To take your reminiscing and hotel-grade pampering a step further, you can also buy the plush bathrobes and bedding used in all Ritz-Carlton properties.
Daylesford in the Cotswolds is a charming, cottagecore utopia in the English countryside consisting of a bed and breakfast, quaint cafes, an organic farm and Bamford Wellness Spa. Its eco-conscious founder, Lady Carole Bamford, pioneered organic, responsible farming in the region when she introduced Daylesford Organic more than 40 years ago.
More recently, she’s ventured into wellness with Bamford’s line of artisanal skincare, developed in collaboration with the spa’s on-site beauty therapists. Approaching skincare as she does food, Bamford uses only natural and, where possible, organic ingredients. The collection includes skincare essentials, bath oils and hair and body products.
Outside Daylesford, Bamford products can be found in Asia at Swire Hotels’ The House Collective, which includes The Upper House in Hong Kong, The Temple House in Chengdu, The Middle House in Shanghai and The Opposite House in Beijing.
