Glenwood Springs, Colo. (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
Spa of the Rockies at Glenwood Hot Springs was recently recognized as a winner in the 2012 SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards in the category of Best Mineral or Thermal Spring Spa. Though Spa of the Rockies is the newest addition to the 125-year-old Glenwood Hot Springs, best known for its two enormous hot springs pools, the Spa of the Rockies is steadily gaining a devoted following with spa-goers worldwide. This marks the second time in two years that Spa of the Rockies has been voted a SpaFinder Readers’ Choice.
“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award. It’s an honor to be selected two years in a row and rewarding to know that our guests have an outstanding experience when they come to Spa of the Rockies for a treatment,” said Megan Swanton, director at Spa of the Rockies.
SpaFinder unveiled the results of the annual Readers’ Choice Awards on Monday, October 15. The 2012 awards were based on votes submitted worldwide at SpaFinder’s global consumer websites, including SpaFinder.com, and by readers of SpaFinder Wellness digital publications. Voters were asked to cast ballots only for stay and day spas they’ve personally visited within the past three years. Spas from six continents and 44 countries were nominated. According to SpaFinder, with a growing worldwide spa community the competition for the awards becomes fiercer with each passing year. In 2012, its tenth year polling readers, SpaFinder tallied more votes than ever before in the Awards’ history.
“Working your way to the top of a global industry crowded with tens of thousands of hotel, resort and destination spas is nothing short of an extraordinary feat,” said Susie Ellis, president of SpaFinder Wellness.
At Spa of the Rockies, the health and wellbeing of guests is the top priority of every member of the spa staff. Spa services including massage, Vichy and other body treatments, reflexology, facials and nail services use potent biodynamic and organic products from around the world. Also, with the world-famous Glenwood Hot Springs Pool just steps away, many Spa of the Rockies guests choose to incorporate a pre-treatment soak in the hot springs. The mineral-rich water is still considered sacred by the Ute Indians, and for over 100 years visitors from around the globe have enjoyed the relaxing and healing properties of the thermal springs.
