The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain has separate male and female locker rooms and relaxation lounges. The relaxation lounges at the spa are situated within each locker room. The locker rooms have an area with lockers and changing space complete with a vanity with a hair dryer, hairspray and other amenities. There’s another section with restrooms, showers and more vanity space with other items you might need, including hair ties, shower caps and combs. Down the hall is the relaxation room, which has comfortable loungers with white and green cushions and small side tables filled with magazines. Set your feet up and relax until your therapist comes to get you for your treatment. The resort keeps citrus trees, so expect to see some kind of citrus fruit to snack on (we had minneolas, a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit). You can also help yourself to apples, dried fruits, nuts and fruit-infused water or hot tea at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa. Couples can relax together in the reading nook, which has a fireplace and comfortable seating and is located just outside of the relaxation areas. Separate male and female wet areas with a dry sauna, steam room and outdoor Jacuzzi are also off each relaxation room. In short, there’s plenty at the spa to keep you busy before your treatment so be sure to arrive early to take advantage of it all.
