JW Marriott® Starr Pass Resort & Spa continues to make its mark as one of the leading resort properties in the world. In the April edition of Condé Nast Traveler, Starr Pass’ Hashani Spa was named one of America’s best resort spas, ranking 34 out of 99. The article highlights American-style spas, which combine a variety of cultural spa treatments with diet, fitness and pampering.
The ranking is a tremendous feat for a spa that opened its doors just five years ago. Hashani Spa joins the ranks of world famous spas in such cities as Napa Valley, CA, Telluride, CO and Grande Lakes, FL. Hashani Spa was inspired by the healing properties of the Sonoran Desert and named for the saguaro cactus (hashani is a Native American word for saguaro). The spa combines ancient healing techniques of the Sonoran Desert with the latest beauty and health technologies. The 20,000 square foot facility includes a fitness center, whirlpool, steam room and sauna, private couples’ treatment rooms and a movement studio that features a large outdoor terrace. Outdoors, guests can enjoy the spa's private pool and al fresco dining at Hashani Spa’s cafe, Blossom.
“We are proud to have been named to this prominent list in Condé Nast Traveler,” says Matt Brody, Starr Pass’ Director of Sales & Marketing. “Publications such as this are a benchmark in our industry and share the very best of what’s available to travelers. Readers of Condé Nast Traveler have experienced some of the finest establishments in the world, and for them to acknowledge Hashani Spa in this respect truly validates our dedication to providing a one-of-a-kind experience and world-class service.”
Hashani encourages greater mental awareness and emphasizes the powerful connection between the body, mind, spirit and, of course, the surrounding environment. Hashani’s doors open to the base of an extensive network of walking trails spa-goers can explore to absorb the natural healing properties of the desert.
