Waldorf Astoria Spa Atlanta

A city spa inspired by the forest

Although Atlanta is one of the South’s largest metropolises, it holds the moniker “City in the Forest” because trees and plants have sprouted up on nearly half of its land. This tree canopy shrouding the city inspired the concept and treatment menu at Waldorf Astoria Spa Atlanta.

Revitalizing and grounding treatments like Forest Therapy, Skin in Bloom and A Walk in the Woods bring you back to nature. And of course, they all come with Waldorf Astoria’s attentive service. Like many of the parks and green spaces that cover Atlanta, this expansive three-story, 13-treatment-room spa is a sanctuary in the city.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The Forest Therapy experience combines a healing mud mask and tension-busting massage using oil that blends evergreen, pink pepper, cypress and juniper. Our favorite part of the service is that proceeds go to Trees Atlanta, a local nonprofit committed to protecting the city’s forests and green spaces.
  • Surrounded by English gardens, the spa is a restorative oasis in the middle of busy Atlanta.
  • The 15,000-square-foot spa has an upbeat, modern design with lots of fresh white.
  • The Buckhead spa features products from international favorites like Biologique Recherche and KNESKO as well as local brands, like Georgia-based Sapelo Skincare.
  • For a uniquely Atlanta service, try the Peachtree Indulgence. After a skin-softening dry brush, your body will be scrubbed with sea salts and then massaged with warm peach oil.

Things to Know

  • Be mindful of the 18-year-old minimum age requirement in case you are traveling with family.
  • A 20 percent gratuity is automatically added onto all services, so there’s no need to bring cash or tack on tips at the end.
  • Check the spa’s website to find a list of online-only specials.

The Treatments

  • A Walk in the Woods celebrates the green spaces that surround the hotel. This full-body massage is customized for your specific needs and incorporates the use of stones, oils and scrubs to leave you relaxed, revitalized and ready for what’s next.
  • One size does not fit all, which is why the spa tailors its Biologique Recherche facial to your needs. The result is an effective regimen with immediate results.
  • Treat your feet to a Deborah Lippmann pedicure. Lippman’s luxurious hand and foot care products make this signature service special. The pedicure is capped off with an application of acai and kokum butter cream that leaves your soles soft and supple without a trace of grease.
  • Boost circulation and soften your dermis with Skin in Bloom. It starts with a body brushing, then you’re slathered with a vegan citrus cardamom mask and finally sealed with some lotion.

The Facilities

  • A visit to the Atlanta spa includes access to the indoor, 60-foot saline lap pool and terrace overlooking the gardens.
  • Detoxifying baths and hydrotherapy rituals round out the wet spaces.
  • The contemporary design and comfortable furnishings in lounge areas are reasons to stay and sit back for a leisurely day.
  • For twosomes traveling together, the couples suite is a spacious and bright location for shared bliss.
  • The hotel offers a spacious fitness center and yoga studio.
