This was one of my best spa experiences! I started the day with a Pilates class in the morning. After donning a robe, i headed to the steam room which was eucalyptus infused. I followed this up with a dip in the hot Jacuzzi Whirlpool for a few minutes. To cool my body off, I jumped into the Cold Pool and then headed to the inhalation Room.
What is an inhalation Room you may ask? It’s a room-temperature, eucalyptus-infused, holistic experience that helps your breathing ability. In the room, I found myself meditating and praying with a sense of gratefulness to be in this magical place.
Next, I meet up with a group of girls for a spa lunch. In the afternoon, I engage in a 90- minute Well & Being Renewal Body Treatment which included a gentle body scrub followed by a massage with essential oils to uncover fresh glowing skin. My second treatment was a 90-minute Anti-Age Correcting Facial, which incorporated a multi acid, exfoliate of the face, neck, décolleté and hands that helps with hyper-pigmentation and a hydration mask. The face mask was put over my eyes and lips, too, which was unusual at first, but I found myself falling asleep before it was over.
The Spa Mesa Rooftop Pool is not only a great place to get a tan but to enjoy the beautiful Arizona sunset. Part of the spa experience is the waterfall that cascades over the red Sedona-hued stones. The waterfall provides a hydro massage for your shoulders and back. I came back to the spa the second day just to indulge in the pool and the waterfall experience.
