Onboard Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas, guests can purchase something called the ultimate thermal suite pass. Royal Caribbean Blog reader Christie McLarty decided to try it for herself and share the experience with everyone!
We purchased the ultimate thermal suite pass for two for the week.
The cost was $250, and included use of the razul/mud room and a private jacuzzi (later referred to as bathing suite). You had to schedule these with the spa and each lasted an hour.
For both services, you check in with the front desk and wait in the relaxation room until a staff member brings you to the room and explains everything in detail before leaving you alone for the remainder of the time. They knock on the door when you have ten minutes remaining.
The razul room consisted of a few steps to exfoliate and cleanse the skin.
The first was a salt scrub. You apply this to yourself or your partner and then rinse it off in the shower. Afterwards, you apply several facial cleansers and masks from Elemis.
These were slightly confusing because the directions on the back of the bottle were for the spa, not for an average consumer such as "apply as per Elemis training." We tried to figure out what to do with each one.
Next, you apply a thin layer of the green mud mask to each other or to yourself. You then sit in the steam room for about 15-20 minutes. It goes through several cycles of steam until a nozzle at the top kicks on and washes the mud off of you.
If the nozzles don't get all the mud off, there are spray shower heads to finish rinsing off. There are towels and robes to use afterwards. The mud mask had a cooling effect similar to icy hot.
The jacuzzi was more like a two person private bathtub. She stated that she put elemis detox products in the bath and this may cause us to sweat. She showed us how to operate the tub and then left us alone.
There was a shower to use after and elemis facial products left out as well. Since we had just finished with the razul treatment, we skipped the facial cleansing. I brought an iPad and we caught up on some shows that I had downloaded.
It was very relaxing and I would definitely do it again. Hope this helps someone!
