Travaasa Hana – one of our featured spa resorts!

For most of us, it’s been a long and bitter winter and now that temperatures are warming up, Spring fever is in full swing! With the longer and warmer days ahead of us, we’re often so caught up in the abundance of activities that we often forget to take care of ourselves. This spring, treat yourself to a five-star rejuvenation at one of these top spas at member-favorite resorts!

Travaasa Hana

Travaasa Hana might be a newer resort, but it’s already making quite a splash with guests! This newcomer to the Hana coast seeks to immerse guests in all the natural splendor of Hawaii with a mix of cultural experiences, organic indulgence and a lowered dependence on technology. Keeping with the spirit, Travaasa Hana offers spa treatments that focus on natural Hawaiian treatments and ingredients. Organic oils, wraps, clay and salt scrubs help guests connect with nature, and the staggering variety of treatments ensure that there’s an option no matter whether you’re looking for a detox or muscle relaxation.

In addition, Travaasa Hana offers three distinct Day Spa packages. The Hana Couple’s Escape offer both partners a full body massage, foot soak, clay foot mask and a nourishing scalp treatment all in a shared spa suite. The Total Balance package allows guests to select one sixty minute facial and one ninety minute massage of their choice, while The Journey package combines the best of Travaasa Hana’s facials and healing massages into one experience. Those interested in the packages should be aware that prices do not include gratuity.

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa

Disney resorts are synonymous with the best in family entertainment, but many first-time travelers overlook the luxurious spas that Disney Vacation Club resorts have to offer. Disney’s Spa at Saratoga Springs Resort consistently pleases both first-time guests and long-time members. Styled after New York’s mineral springs, the Spa at Saratoga Springs offers massage therapies, facials, body wraps, a whirlpool, heated loungers and a steam room. Ambiance is a defining feature; spa suites are outfitted with soft, golden lighting, comforting music and utterly tantalizing aromas (the apple sugar body scrub is a favorite!)

The Spa at Saratoga Springs encompasses dozens of individual treatments, four complete packages as well as enhancement and add-on services to customize your experience. Keeping in line with Disney’s traditional family friendly approach, kids aged 4-12 also have access to their own specialized treatments – Magical Manicure and Princess Pedicure. This makes the Spa at Saratoga Springs perfect for families wanting some extra pampering together!

The Westin Mission Hills Villas

Set against the sweeping Californian mountains just minutes away from Palm Springs lies the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort and Spa, including the timeshare division Westin Mission Hills Villas. This mountainside retreat also houses an onsite golf course and spa with a focus on the healing powers of the desert. Earthy tones set the atmosphere and the scent of green tea in the air hints of relaxation to come.

The Spa at Mission Hills offers the standard assortment of spa services – massage therapies, facials, bath and body treatments as well as tanning, waxing and nail services. Where the Spa at Mission Hills really shines is in the extras offered – Hatha yoga classes let you learn some of the relaxation techniques to take back home, and the Spa for a Cause charity events ensure you don’t need to feel guilty for indulging in a little extra me-time.

The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas

Westin’s ever-popular Maui destination wraps up our rundown with Spa Helani, part of Westin’s Heavenly Spa line. This reimagining of the standard spa service seeks to mix new and up-to-date technology with the natural spirit of every Heavenly location to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Spa Helani truly captures the essence of Hawaii – the couples treatment suite is tucked away in a ‘treehouse’, and private cabanas are tucked away among fountains and foliage.

Spa Helani’s focus is on sensuality – every sense is indulged. The sight of the naturally-styled treatment rooms and the view from the lanai is gorgeous no doubt, but the true beauty of Spa Helani is found in the senses of scent, taste and touch. Helani-exclusive oils and scrubs are employed and exude the aromas of lemongrass, passion fruit and sea salt. Guests are offered a complimentary white tea blend and have the option of enjoying specially selected dishes ranging from light salads to seafood sandwiches and tacos. Touch certainly isn’t left neglected either – Helani boasts dozens of skilled therapists, and the WestinWORKOUT Fitness Center is ideal for when you want to push your body to its limits.
