Inspired Spa Treatments
Elevate Your Sense of Joy.
Elevate Your Altitude | 120 Min.
Ease into mountain heights with a high-altitude oil infused with peppermint, ylang ylang, tangerine and fennel. A vigorous massage technique stimulates oxygen flow through the tissues and Himalayan salt stones increase circulation and improve sleep. A concentrated oxygen boost following the treatment allows the effect to continue long after you’ve left.
Summit of Serenity | 120 Min.
This aromatherapeutic treatment promotes relaxation and focus. First, a chamomile and olive grain scrub to refresh the legs and feet. Pure frankincense is then used to rebalance the chakras and release cranial pressure. Finish out the treatment with an ayurvedic scalp massage and effleurage back massage. The perfect antidote for stress and over-stimulation.
The Athlete’s Retreat | 120 Min.
Ideal for adventurers and athletes, this sports-style massage reinvigorates and refreshes.
Specialized massage techniques are applied to the legs, ankles and feet to reduce swelling. Placement of Himalayan salt stones during the massage alleviates inflammation, draws out toxins and balances ions in the surrounding environment, resulting in a deep, profound state of relaxation.
Shinrin Yoku Ritual | 120 Min.
Scientifically proven to immediately lower blood pressure, increase circulation and boost the immune system, this forest bathing ritual begins with an immersive walk through our nearby evergreen forest. A tranquil, guided meditation clears the mind and primes the body for relaxation, followed by a Himalayan warm stone massage, in which hand-blended evergreen and pine oils induce deep serenity by removing toxins and rebalancing ions.
All of our massages are tailored to your body’s personal needs. The experience can also be enhanced with our hand-blended aromatherapy oils. Please communicate one of the options below to our spa concierge as a starting point for your journey.

Himalayan Salt Stone Massage | 25* / 50 / 80 / 105 Min.
Stones from the ancient seas beneath the Himalayan mountains are warmed to a moderate temperature and used to balance the body’s electromagnetic field, central nervous system and meridians. These stones will gently soothe away stress, tension and pollutants in the air and in your body.

Renew your energy and spirits after a long day of travel. An exfoliating dry body brushing begins this treatment, followed by tailored massage techniques that alleviate the effects of travel by boosting circulation and draining excess fluids.

Applied to the skin and inhaled, the essential oils involved are chosen to ease the body’s transition into your new time zone, providing an enlivening or relaxing effect while simultaneously detoxifying and stimulating the senses.

An invigorating dry body brushing invigorates the skin and prepares it for a targeted mud application, packed with organic nutrients, vitamins and amino acids, hydrates the skin and draws out impurities. Drainage movements and pressure to reflexology points promote metabolic function, eliminate toxins and encourage further elimination of fluids.
Fresh Start | 50 / 75 MIN.
Replenish your energy levels with zesty citrus oils. Excellent for those who are detoxing, overworked or tired. An exfoliation with finely ground olive grains refines the pores and reveals fresh new skin. You are then enveloped in layers of gels that remain on the skin, leaving it profoundly hydrated. A stimulating scalp massage and rejuvenating stretches leave you feeling fresh and invigorated.
