Golden Door Spa

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 golf course.

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 the spa.
