Things to Know

The Treatments
• The Valmont Facial is one of the spa’s most popular treatments offered year-round. This Swiss-developed collagen mask is like a “biological facelift” that aims to recover the skin’s natural resilience, suppleness and radiance.

• The Cherry Blossom Ritual is another favorite and involves a warm, gentle exfoliation followed by a generous foot rub and a full-body massage with cherry blossom shea butter.

• Walk in the Woods is the luxury spa’s four-hour signature experience and if you have the time, it should not be missed. Designed to give your mind a breath of fresh air, it includes a pedicure, manicure, facial, body scrub or Swedish massage, and a glass of champagne.

• Gentlemen may enjoy the Dogwood experience, which includes a therapeutic massage and a men’s facial, which soothes away tension by using hot towels and incorporating a scalp massage.
The Facilities
• You have all-day access to the spa’s luxurious amenities, including relaxation lounges, locker rooms, an outdoor meditation courtyard, steam room, a eucalyptus sauna and therapeutic current pool.

• The spa boutique carries some of the best and well-known beauty products in the world, all of which are featured on the treatment menu.
