What happens in a spa resort?

The most common services offered on the hotel's spa menus are massages, manicures, pedicures and facials. Depending on the facility, hotel spas may also come equipped with steam rooms and saunas for guests to enjoy between treatments. At the spa, you can receive massages, facial and body treatments, and have access to all the facilities, which tend to be luxurious than a day spa. There may be healthy options on the menu and in a spa cafe, but at a resort spa, you can eat a 20-ounce steak and polish it with a pitcher of martinis if desired.

You're there to have fun and relax, not necessarily to grow and be healthy. The spa is usually open to locals who want to book a treatment. What is it? Fully immersive and often all-inclusive, a destination spa focuses on wellness and alignment of mind, body and spirit through spa services, healthy meals, fun activities, informative classes, and endless opportunities to work up a sweat. What is it? Here, the spa is just one of the amenities offered by the property.

The resort may offer fun activities to do, such as cooking demonstrations and horseback riding, but it doesn't have the extensive list of fitness classes or the educational component of a destination spa. What is it? As the name implies, this is your best option when you don't have much time. A wide range of pampering services are offered, but there are few, if any, fitness and wellness activities. Herbal tubs complete many of our private treatment rooms for the most pleasant getaways.

Spa guests also enjoy access to the resort's indoor pool and hot tub, where they can be pampered with a transformative journey for body, mind and spirit. Salon services include professional hair treatments, styling and nail care. Choose from a rejuvenating selection of personalized day spa packages, including personalized services, treatments and a full spa vacation experience.
