Find Your Bliss at Glenwood Springs Spas
There’s nothing like a full-body massage to put you at ease and help you decompress. As life gets busier, more hectic and stressful, people are turning to touch-therapy remedies—a term that includes an assortment of healing modalities such as massage, reflexology, body wraps and other treatments—for relief.
The Glenwood Springs Spa Tradition
No newcomer to the spa scene, Glenwood Springs has been a center for holistic wellness for over 130 years. Under the direction of visionary entrepreneur Walter Devereux, in 1888 the Glenwood Hot Springs welcomed its first guests to not only swim and soak in its mineral-rich waters, but to receive therapeutic, physician-prescribed massages. These took place in the landmark red sandstone bathhouse. A few years later, in 1893, the Hotel Colorado opened its doors as a destination hotel. Though the two properties are now separate entities, they continue to partner together to bring guests the same restorative combination of rest and relaxation.
Rocky Mountain Revival
The Hotel Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Revival Package is a tribute to those early days. While much has changed—improved comforts at the Hotel, including well-appointed rooms with air conditioning, exceptional dining indoors and out as weather permits and live musical entertainment on weekends throughout the year, for example—much has also remained the same. Visitors can still easily walk across the street to soak in the world-famous hot springs pool and though thoroughly modernized, the award-winning Spa of the Rockies is housed in the very same original red sandstone bathhouse.
In addition to comfortable lodging at the historic Hotel Colorado, the Rocky Mountain Revival Package includes your choice of any 60-minute therapy from the Spa of the Rockies’ ‘Massage Collection’ menu, as well as admission to the world-famous Glenwood Hot Springs, which is open daily until 10 p.m.
A Choice Assortment of Spas
Spa of the Rockies is just one of many options that wellness seekers have in the hot springs town. Reliable, stress-relieving therapies like Swedish, deep tissue, sports and warm stone massage are offered at many Glenwood Springs spas. Visitors can also opt for something a little more unusual. For example, with its indoor pool, Splendor Mountain Spa specializes in Watsu and water dance therapies, while Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves features tantalizing monthly specials that, in addition to spa services, also include admission to its steamy underground caves.
Located in the heart of Glenwood’s historic hot springs and spa district, the Hotel Colorado is within walking distance of most of the town’s spas. With a long-established history of hot springs and spas, finding your bliss is simple and stress-free in Glenwood Springs.
