San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
One of the leading women’s magazines in the United States has just ranked the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa as one of the country’s Top 10 Most Relaxing Resorts.
Redbook magazine praises the San Antonio spa resort for its unique treatments inspired by traditional healing remedies of the indigenous Curanderos culture and suggests guests “splurge (for) the 105-minute Spirit of the Curanderos Energy Spa Journey.” All treatments at Lantana Spa start with the traditional Los Siete Nudos, or “Seven Knots,” ritual in which participants tie seven knots in a red ribbon, each signifying a stress or worry they are carrying. At the end of their spa journey, visitors leave behind the ribbon as a sign of feeling refreshed and renewed.
Rejuvenating treatments offered at the Hill Country spa include massages, body scrubs and wraps, facials, foot baths, waxings, manicures and pedicures. Guests are encouraged to try the JW Marriott signature Restorative Organic Massage, Heated Stone Massage, River Birch Sports Massage, Spirit of the Curanderos Energy Spa Journey, Texas Herbal Remedy and the Lavender Salt Glow, Texas Caviar Facial, Custom Purifying Facial and the Texas Hill Country resort’s signature Active Organic Facial. Treatments for two and other all-encompassing packages are available.
The Lantana Spa is composed of three relaxation lounges, a private outdoor spa pool and whirlpool, men’s and women’s steam rooms, saunas and inhalation rooms. Spa patrons can also access the state-of-the-art fitness center containing cardiovascular and weight machines and free weights. Weekly classes for yoga and Pilates are also available in addition to personal training and private instruction. Although complimentary healthy snacks are provided, guests can visit the Replenish Spa Café serving dishes and drinks designed to complement the relaxing and stress-free environment of Lantana Spa as well as support local artisan and organic farmers.
For travelers seeking to unwind outdoors, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa also has two of the Lone Star State’s most beloved golf courses, the AT&T Oaks Course and the AT&T Canyons Course. The San Antonio golf resort’s 36 holes were designed by Pete Dye and Greg Norman, two of the sport’s most innovative architects.
Relaxation is paramount at the San Antonio resort, where guest rooms reflect the area’s natural tones and textures that blend with lavish amenities and comfortable bedding. Pillow-top mattresses topped with custom duvets will lull weary travelers into a sound night’s sleep, while resort bathrooms boast separate tubs and showers with granite accents for a refreshing morning. Complimentary bottled water, coffeemakers, mini-refrigerators, plush bathrobes, 37-inch LCD TVs and iPod docks are among amenities that will have guests feeling right at home.
