Arizona day spas are known throughout
the country as some of the most elegant in the nation.
The dry desert air of the Southwest, as well as the availability
of large stretches of land has made the Southwestern United
States an ideal location for day spas of every kind.
Arizona day spas are numerous, but by far the most widely
recognized spa in Arizona is the Golden Door Spa near Phoenix in Scottsdale.
Featuring more types of treatments than any other spa
in the region, the Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa
is the perfect place to slough off tired cells along with
the tiring work week.
The Boulders Resort and Golden Door
Spa was the first of its kind to take up residence in
this part of Arizona, which is perhaps one of the factors
lending fame to its name. More than just a spa,
the Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa also features
two impressive golf courses and extensive accommodation
for overnight guests. The Golden Door Spa also features
more than 7 restaurants, 2 tennis courts, 2 Jacuzzis and
4 swimming pools. The resort also offers a business
center, bike rentals, room service, babysitting, laundry
service, dry cleaning and an exercise room. Guest
of the Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa will also receive
a discount off of the price of golf on the resort’s
Although this resort has many amenities to its credit, for most travelers the favorite is the Golden Door Spa itself, which covers more than 33,000 square feet of space. The Golden Door Spa has 24 separate treatment spaces and has a long list of possible treatments. The spa features a Movement Studio with classes on Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi for participants at every level. Among Arizona day spas, this is also the only resort and spa featuring two unique rooms, The Labyrinth and The Watsu. The Labyrinth is a large maze inspired by local Native American traditions with a focus on leading a path to tranquility. The Watsu is an underwater experience that focuses on bringing guests “back to the womb”.
The spa also features more traditional
ways to relax, including the Golden Door Café and
Tea Room which serves light snacks and beverages, as well
as a full service beauty salon where guests can change
their look or spend time refreshing themselves after a
day spent relaxing at the spa. Nearby spas, including
the Canyon Ranch
Spa, the Miravel,
and Mii Amo also
feature a number of spa services for travelers who may
be looking to extend their vacation with a visit to multiple
spas or resorts. However, tourists hoping to find
the largest spa with the widest range of services will
want to visit the Boulders Resort and Golden Day Spa.
For family vacations, Boulders Resort can also be a great
choice, since it features babysitting, activities for
children, and golf along with the services provided by
