Share Article

The votes have been tallied and spa goers from around the world have spoken, naming Spa of the Rockies a SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Award winner for Best Mineral and Thermal Spring Spa. The official award will be presented to Spa of the Rockies in Las Vegas at the annual International Spa Association (ISPA) conference on November 8.

Spa of the Rockies features treatments that focus on health and wellness

We feel privileged and honored to be able to meet the high standards of SpaFinder readers.

With its one-of-a-kind amenities, Glenwood Hot Springs has been a famous Colorado destination for well over a century. In 2008, the resort opened Spa of the Rockies, a modern spa focused on health and wellness that occupies a renovated 123-year-old historic bathhouse. Though only open for three years, SpaFinder readers have selected Spa of Rockies as one of the Top 10 Mineral and Thermal Spas in the world.

On September 27, SpaFinder, the global spa resource for millions of spa enthusiasts, announced the results of its 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards, naming Spa of the Rockies a top pick among readers. “With over 80,000 spas worldwide, for Spa of the Rockies to be named a SpaFinder Readers’ Choice is a tremendous tribute and a result of the dedication and hard work of our Glenwood Hot Springs staff,” said Kjell Mitchell, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer for Glenwood Hot Springs and Spa of the Rockies. “We feel privileged and honored to be able to meet the high standards of SpaFinder readers.”

The 2011 awards were based on votes submitted worldwide at SpaFinder’s global consumer websites, including, and by readers of SpaFinder publications. Voters were asked to cast ballots only for spas they’ve personally visited within the past three years. Spas from six continents and 44 countries were nominated. “SpaFinder was the first to offer people the opportunity to vote for their favorite spas in diverse categories, providing a fast, accessible way for spa goers to make decisions based on what’s important to them,” said SpaFinder President Susie Ellis. “They have become an important consumer guide, as well as an industry accolade.” Readers’ Choice Award winners will be featured in the annual NewBeauty SpaFinder: Guide to Global Spa, Wellness & Beauty, and can be found now at
