Organic Treatments at the New Corbu Spa at Cambridge's Charles Hotel

The Charles Hotel, CambridgeAnd we thought farm-to-table cuisine was all the rage. Taking a cue from the success of Rialto and Henrietta’s Table restaurants at The Charles Hotel, the new Corbu Spa & Salon will offer organic treatments with ingredients plucked from the hotel’s onsite garden. Spa Director Pamela Baldwin Adami will even be mixing scrubs, lotions and potions in her own home. The new spa—slated to open in late summer—is named for renowned architect Le Corbusier, whose one building in North America (the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard) is situated just steps away from the spa.

Highlights of the 4,000-square-foot Corbu Spa: The “Room for Two” equipped with a Swiss shower, and body treatments that sound good enough to eat. (And they should be! Considering the restaurant chefs worked closely with the spa director to invent them.) Case in point: The Vanilla Mocha Slimming Treatment, utilizing a stimulating blend of coffee and cocoa combined with hempseed butter. Corbu will also launch the “Spa with a Heart” program- with a portion of the proceeds from special packages going to local charitable organizations like Partners in Health, MSPCA, the EcoLogic Development Fund, and the Steppingstone Foundation.
