explore 7 Super Spas Here’s where you’ll come away feeling your very best. By Blake Miller ★ illustration by Michael Witte Sometimes a spa is just a spa. And other times, it’s an experience. These seven standouts offer more than the usual pedicures and mud wraps. Instead, you’ll find yourself immersed in relaxation rooms, engaged in ancient rituals, or captivated by dreamy environments. The Aman Spa at Amangiri Canyon Point, utah There’s a reason celebrities like Brad and Angelina escape here for privacy. The resort is set on 600 Diversions Pursuits of Pleasure picture-perfect acres adjacent to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and the Grand StaircaseEscalante. Guests check in miles before they set eyes on the 35-room luxury property. Unlike other spas that boast dozens of treatment rooms, Amangiri is all about providing guests an ultra-private experience. Case in point: Though the spa is 25,000 square feet, there are only five treatment rooms, each walnut-lined and candlelit. Even if the resort and spa are at full capacity you’ll feel like you’re the only one there. The Highlight: The Mesa Pool Suites. There are only two of these, making them the most coveted rooms on the property. Each suite boasts a large daybed in the arrival courtyard, a private sky terrace where you can sleep outdoors, and a private plunge pool. Expect one of the spa’s therapists to perform Watsu, a gentle form of water therapy that combines elements of massage, shiatsu, muscle stretching, and dance. june 2013 37
