Like most people, you’re probably trying to save money – especially if a getaway to a place like beautiful Vail, Colorado, is on your radar. But that doesn’t mean you can’t pamper yourself when you get off the mountain side. Vail can be an expensive town, but if you know where to look, its resorts are filled with spas that do offer great deals.
Vail is filled with luxury spas that are within financial reach of the average person. Here are some of our favorites:
The Arrabelle’s luxury RockResorts Spa offers a surprisingly affordable treatment menu for a venue known for splendor. Located in one of Vail’s most picturesque settings, with modern, environmentally conscious amenities, RockResorts was voted one of the top 20 spas in the world by a Conde Naste readers poll in 2012.
Among the top offerings? Indulge in their rich, dark chocolate, softening body mask that nourishes the skin while fighting the aging process. Your skin will be left hydrated with a warm, creamy, caramel body milk. You can score this 50-minute pleasure for just $150.
The Golden Leaf Spa at the Vail Marriot is the perfect place to warm up and rejuvenate after a cold day on the slopes. They offer an extensive a la carte spa menu, but the very best deals are the full packages. The Extreme Defrost package, for example, offers healing water, a signature facial and 50-minute Swedish massage.
Aria at Cascade
The Aria Athletic Club at the Cascade resort is the Vail Valley’s largest fitness club and spa. Their spa has it all – half day, full day, mini-packages, full packages and individual treatments. The best deal at Aria has to be their Mountain Spa Manicure/Pedicure. Why? Because you get a complimentary glass of fine wine.
Vail Mountain Lodge
Vail Mountain Lodge’s Vitality Center has some of the most unique spa packages of any resort. Take their Thai Herbal Therapy, for example. A relaxing bath featuring essential oil of ginger is followed by steamed herbal poultices filled with organic ginger, lime and tumeric being pressed and rolled into the muscles to ease soreness, stiffness and inflammation. Then dive into a deep state of relaxation with a massage with Thai herbal oil. If $280 seems pricey, consider that the pleasure lasts for 100 minutes.
