The special course includes a full-body treatment using the spa's original oil; back exfoliation with a gentle scrub for the party season; shirodhara, a form of ayurveda medicine that involves gently pouring warm oil over the forehead, which will lead to deep relaxation; and an aroma-scented, relaxing bath.

The original Joule hamper contains various Christmas gifts, such as the kashbear (a teddy bear made of Kashwere, a cashmere-soft polyester material); bath salts, perfume and a candle by fragrance brand Zents; and Joule's original tote bag and balancing body oil.

Also, free access to the fitness gym and swimming pool is included in the package, which costs ¥50,000 and is available for three female guests per day. A reservation is required. Joule Spa is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Located in the hotel's penthouse, Joule Spa is a place for customers to recharge while enjoying panoramic views of Shinjuku skyscrapers or Mount Fuji.
