Best Spa Services in Scottsdale, Arizona
Journeywoman enjoyed learning about the Willow
Stream Spa's massage for "almost mommies."
Using a table built specifically for the body of an expectant
mother, this pampering experience is designed with the safety
of mother and child in mind.
The Golden Door Spa at
The Boulders offers s a full program for "mothers-to-be."
To their prenatal massage, they add a Tranquillity Facial
as well as a cooling pedicure to assist with circulation in
mama's legs. Overall pampering is completed with a manicure
and rejuvenating hairstyling.
Seasons Resort in Scottsdale is thinking about their
young guests. "Each Saturday evening, beginning at 5 p.m.,
the resort showcases two kid-friendly movies back-to-back. Supervised
by Kids for All Seasons attendants, children watch their favorite
big screen stars while parents enjoy their own fun with peace
Each day the spa chef at Camel Back
Inn concocts a vitamin-packed calorie-conscious health
drink designed to fuel the body. When Journeywoman visited their
restaurant, an aloe vera, blackberry juice and acidophilus smoothie
was featured. It was surprisingly good -- I ordered a second
one after my workout.
Good to hear about this! At the Boulders' rugged 36-hole golf
course, women can extend their leisure activities by signing
on to the "Women-to-the-fore" plan . According to
the resort's press material, "their one-of-a-kind program
is designed to help new women golfers learn the game and to
ease the intimidation newcomers often feel on the golf course."
An unique potpourri sachet has been placed in each woman's locker
at the Four Seasons spa.
A most original, elegant touch!
It's hard to believe but The Phoenician
in Scottsdale has nine separate swimming pools. Journeywoman
is impressed with the main oval pool tiled in Mother-of-Pearl;
there's also an edgeless pool, children's wading pools and a
huge 165-foot water slide. A perfect way to for you and kiddies
to cool off when the Sonoran desert sun just gets too hot!
