What better way to unwind than with a weekend getaway to the spa-filled state of Arizona? Before you go berserk on misbehaving kids or collapse under pressure from work – calm your nerves, overindulge your senses, and decompress with these Arizona spa getaways.
Willow Stream Spa
Right from the get-go, it’s easy to take it easy here. Ready yourself for rejuvenation in the desert-themed atrium and then get whisked away to a tranquil treatment room where you can enjoy expected menu items like facials and body scrubs, as well as exclusive goodies like the Arizona Aloe Body Wrap. After you’ve been properly pampered, head to the adults-only rooftop, which has a pool and fantastic view of the McDowell Mountains. Don’t forget to take a yoga class in the multi-faceted fitness center or partake of some whirlpool relaxation. The Willow Stream Spa overshadows the surrounding hotel resort, so save money and ensure your vacation is luxurious from start to finish with a nearby Scottsdale vacation rental.
Centre for Well-Being
Spiritual spa goers will find themselves at home at the foot of the Camelback Mountains. Start your day in the sauna, steam room, Swiss shower, Jacuzzi, meditation atrium, or all of the above, and then spoil yourself with a variety of services that range from pedicures to astrology sessions. Beginners are advised to buy the well-rounded Sanctuary Package, while veterans can sign up for innovative treatments like the Acussage, a combination of massage and acupuncture. Before the day’s over, get your heart rate up with a Tai Chi lesson and then cool down with an herbal tea from the Waters Bar. The Centre for Well-Being lives up to its name, with Native American-inspired amenities and services that promote physical and mental health. A Scottsdale rental makes a better and more budget-friendly home base than a hotel room at the Phoenician Resort, where the spa is located.
Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain
While many Arizona spas sport a Southwestern vibe, the Sanctuary – a healing hideaway in the Camelback Mountains – is where you can discover your inner Zen. Everything about the spa, from the décor to the menu, is influenced by Asia. The indoor and outdoor treatment rooms, Watsu pool (for soon-to-be-moms), meditation garden, and unique offerings like the Thai table massage and Luk Pra Kope treatment package, all help to make the Sanctuary experience one-of-a-kind. A special treat for couples is the Sanctum, an indoor/outdoor suite for romantic massages and even meals! Find a Paradise Valley vacation rental if you want to wake up close to this spa.
The Golden Door Spa
Arizona’s take on the Escondido, California original is distinctly Southwestern, with a hint of Japanese. Reflect and relax with yoga in the Movement Studio, a cardiovascular workout in the Fitness Center, or a refreshing facial. Make sure to visit the centripetal Labyrinth, grab a bite to eat at the café overlooking the desert, and drop by the boutique for the facility’s acclaimed skin care line. The Golden Door Spa is located just outside Scottsdale, in Carefree, Arizona.
Consider Sedona’s New Day Spa for all the standard services plus quality massage therapists, but for a very cheap price. With a Sedona rental, you can recharge your batteries even if you’re on a tight budget.
Thanks to these enticing Arizona spa getaways, you can destress for a day, or two or three, and return home a much calmer, healthier you.
