Nothing says Spring like a deep tissue massage and cocoon like room to unwind in. This season one of the world’s top spas has revealed the results of its brand new revitalization. Sanctuary Spa at Sanctuary Resort and Spa has completed a top-to-bottom refurbishment and expansion that has introduced a fresh new look and a brand-new feature, the Women’s Quiet Room. An intimate retreat, the celebrated spa features separate his and hers full service spas, with a total of 12 indoor and outdoor treatment rooms and a private, stone-walled outdoor treatment room affectionately referred to as the Sanctum.
Here’s a look at a few more of my favorite new additions…
The spa has gained more than 1,000 square feet and features a Women’s Quiet Room aka: my new hangout! The steam room is doubled the size of the original to let in more natural light and capitalize on the nearly 365 days of sunshine in AZ. Plan to spend a few hours here before or after your treatment…trust me!
The new Quiet Room is a windowless cocoon-like room that offers spa visitors a tranquil alternative to the more social environment of the women’s lounge. Sculpted ovals suspended from the 11-foot ceiling cradle a one-of-a-kind, eight-foot-long light fixture crafted of paper and wood by artist William Leslie and titled “Wave after Wave.” Sheer, off-white luminescent panels create privacy between the 12 chaise lounges, each of which is covered in a subtle neutral tone and complemented by a small side table – perfect for a cup of tea retrieved from the stone-topped cabinet that serves as a refreshment station. Are you relaxed yet?
The Foyer has a new look and and the women’s lounge and locker areas have gotten a total face lift. Seating has been increased in the women’s waiting area so now you can bring ALL your girlfriends for a spa day! The lounge’s long exterior wall is an expanse of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass bifold doors that maximize natural light and sheer drapes soften the light and billow when the doors are opened. There are a ton more changes from the women’s showers to the luxurious jacuzzi, but I’ll let you experience those in person!
We can’t forget about the men! The Men’s Spa has kept its original footprint but has taken on a new vibe with all new finishes and furnishings!
