The Spa at The Post Oak Hotel

A lavish Houston escape

Slip away to Uptown Houston to find serenity among the tony shops, popular restaurants and buzzing bars at The Spa at The Post Oak Hotel. Opened in 2018, the 20,000-square-foot urban oasis stands out for its cutting-edge treatments, superior service and lavish touches.

Just like the ultra-luxePost Oak Hotel, the spa is a hub of carefully curated, exclusive amenities — it’s the sole facility in Texas to offer the six-in-one In-Skin facial machine, only available stateside in Los Angeles until now. Other features, like the crushed ice fountain to promote circulation or the out-of-this-world experience shower, leave a lasting impression.

Whether you’re a proud Houston resident or visiting, this chic retreat offers a well-balanced and luxurious escape.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The spa menu tells a story as diverse as Houston itself, focusing on specialty treatments (the personalized Prescriptive Scrub Bar) and cultured rituals (the Balinese or Royal Lomi massage) from around the world.
  • The Spa at Post Oak Hotel is the first in Texas to partner with French spa brand Cinq Mondes. Thanks to the exclusive collaboration, you can indulge in one-of-a-kind treatments like the two-hour Ritual of Five Worlds, which blends the best of the globe’s relaxation techniques.
  • The luxury spa utilizes only eco-friendly and socially conscious products, such as Aromatherapy Associates essential oils and Swiss-based Jacqueline Piotaz anti-aging serums and lotions.
  • Every aspect of the facility was meticulously selected and made, right down to the massage tables from Living Earth Crafts. These fully heated beds will leave you feeling pampered.
  • The spa’s shop is as extravagant as the luxury hotel, and locals and visitors can’t get enough — there’s a wait list for Culti fragrance diffusers from Milan.

Things to Know

  • If you’re looking for a romantic spa retreat, book early to reserve the couple’s suite. The suite is extra indulgent with a massive tub and steam shower.
  • Before or after your muscle-melting massage, you’ll partake in the spa’s tea program, where staff will handpick a blend based on your specific treatment and serve it on a tray in a mini teapot. Opt for this calming ritual post-treatment to also sample the housemade lavender sorbet.
  • Relaxation room refreshments include collagen flax-seed muffins, peanut butter protein bars, fresh-pressed juices and Pure Inventions’ (a natural supplement brand) coconut-infused water, all of which are made in house.

The Treatments

  • The spa’s In-Skin facial machine features six high-performance functions (air massage, microdermabrasion, oxygen-infusion, LED therapy, radio frequency, electroporation). The In-Skin Ultimate Radiant Complexion is a two-hour treatment with results so jaw-dropping that staff encourages you to take your own before-and-after pictures for un-edited proof.
  • Exclusive to The Post Oak Hotel is the Ritual of Five Worlds, a two-hour indulgence that blends various relaxation techniques and treatments from five countries. This experience culminates in a sumptuous massage by two therapists at once — one working on the head and the other simultaneously focused on the feet.
  • Gents can enjoy specially crafted treatments here. Savor a grooming session with On the Rocks, a refreshing combination of hand and foot exfoliation, an acupuncture massage, a nourishing foot wrap and nail buffing paired with your choice of Scotch, bourbon or tequila on ice.
  • If you have a difficult time relaxing, try the Ayurvedic massage, which uses a combination of slow and rapid kneading to promote sound sleep, relieve sore muscles and balance energy. This centuries-old Indian ritual uses warm vanilla and cardamom oils to piece the sensory tradition together.

The Facilities

  • The experience shower allows you to customize your rinse with three different settings (cold mist, Caribbean rain and Atlantic ocean), light options and various pressure settings and scents.
  • Relax and recharge in one of three zero-gravity chairs in the coed relaxation lounge.
  • Before your treatment, unwind in heated stone loungers, a vitality pool, an aroma steam room and a sauna. Between heated encounters, stop by the flaked ice fountain to rub the frozen crystals on your skin; the drastic temperature change provides a host of health benefits, such as skin tightening and increased circulation.
  • The Houston spa is on the fifth floor of the hotel, under the brand-new 24-hour fitness facility. Personal training sessions and yoga classes can be booked through the spa.
