PRESS KIT: Nature Elevates Spa at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe
OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. – Summer 2014 – A vacation just isn’t a vacation without a bit of mental and physical pampering. Even the most ardent adventurer needs some down time and the Spa at Squaw Creek at Resort at Squaw Creek is the sanctuary everyone seeks to relax and rejuvenate.
The Lake Tahoe spa’s offerings are simple, yet essential and luxurious. They subscribe to the less is more theory, and it’s worked, garnering it a place among Conde Nast Traveler’s list of top five resort spas in the nation. Quality treatments are the focus of the Spa at Squaw Creek. They’re given with such skill and technique, guests will feel as if they’ve stepped off a cloud when they leave.
Atmosphere and ambiance are the spa’s true highlights. As with the rest of the resort, it’s not about pretension, it’s about perfection. In the Sierra Nevada, nothing comes closer to perfection than nature, so designers brought all the calming elements of the outside in. Birch tree trunks emerging from river rock bases create privacy and solitude while water features soothe weary souls and busy minds.
Mother Nature is also integrated in the body treatments. Orange blossom sugar scrubs and royal coconut milk and honey treatments balance out the glow-inducing, body-firming Moroccan body buff and mud and seaweed wraps.
The facilities include a spa boutique, year-round heated swimming pools, comprehensive fitness center, men’s and women’s dry saunas and steam room, and ten treatment rooms with memory foam beds to help sink guests into blissful comfort. The spa features San Francisco-based Tara with its definitive line of quality natural products.
Spa hours vary by season (but are generally 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and reservations are strongly recommended. For more information, or to book an appointment, go to www.squawcreek.com or call 800-327-3353.
