Rocky Mountain-inspired relaxation
10 Treatment Rooms
Elevate all your senses at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Denver, which not only offers treatments like massage, facials and manicures, but it does them with a local twist.
To get to the state-of-the-art facility, head to the third level of Four Seasons Hotel Denver, where the outdoor pool is located. Walk past the floor-to-ceiling windows and the neat-as-a-pin fitness center to find the warmly lit, cork-paneled entrance. From there, if you can manage to not linger too long among the rows of high-end Kerastase, Clarisonic and Colorado-based Zents products for sale, you will find yourself on the path to relaxation and bliss. Enter your respective locker room and wind your way through the low-lit halls to the round and bubbling Jacuzzi. Or perchance you want a pre-treatment rinse in one of the private, multi-rain showers or steam before a facial. No matter what you do, the time is yours for indulging.
One extraordinary aspect to the spa menu at the Four Seasons is its dedication to Colorado-themed services. Using ingredients like evergreen oil, sugar instead of salt to hydrate you in the arid climate and locally made products, the Denver spa highlights facets of the region that many other venues neglect. Experience this firsthand with the evergreen massage, a 50- to 80-minute service that taps into the Native Americans' use of evergreen trees for the anti-inflammatory properties and to soothe pain from tired and sore muscles. This particular massage starts with "energy healing sticks" before the skilled masseuse goes into deep-tissue work. Another massage influenced by the Native Americans in the Western Slope is the Rocky Mountain hot stone, a treatment featuring heated river stones placed strategically on the body.
Newcomers to Colorado who feel the tiredness associated with high altitude and thinner air might enjoy the special High-Altitude, Full-Body Revival. During this 80-minute massage and reflexology treatment, you will experience the luxury spa’s own spirit-lifting essential oil, a blend that includes high-oleic sunflower oil infused with white pine, spruce, sage, balsam fir and frankincense. It also has a 5,280 massage, which tips a hat to the mile-high city and uses an azurite gemstone oil infused with herbs to help ease tension.
Of course the spa isn't just about massage — you can also get a facial, wrap or scrub. Off the Colorado-focused menu, the Mile-High Hydromax facial uses aloe, rose, evening primrose and calendula to keep the skin hydrated. If your whole body is in need of a moisture boost, get the honey-avocado wrap. The live enzymes in the locally harvested honey mixed with the lubricating magic of avocado butter will have you smooth and glowing, as if you were vacationing by the sea instead of up in the mountains.
While your body gets pampered at the downtown Denver spa, don't forget to primp as well. For those needing a quick updo, haircut or highlights, the full-service salon is located right next to the pool. And, across from that you have the cozy manicure and pedicure area, where the technicians will rub your hands and feet, moisturize with shea butter and then paint your nails just about any color from the OPI collection. Reserve a spot for yourself, a couple of friends or even a wedding party. Whether you want to take a private yoga class, have a dip in the pool or desire a long day of pampering, the options are plentiful at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Denver.
