Water is the inspiration for Revive Spa at JW Marriott Desert Ridge. In the bilevel lobby rotunda, water flows directly underneath the open skylight two stories above, emphasizing the grand proportions of the space. The spa, at 28,000 square feet, has 41 treatment rooms; additional amenities include indoor relaxation rooms with fireplaces and outdoor patios, sauna, spa boutique, steam room, and outdoor showers in the men's and women's locker lounges. Following treatments, guests are invited to savor organic fare at Spa Bistro or enjoy the Arizona sun at Revive's Sanctuary Pool.
Complementing its range of massage, facials, waxing services, and body treatments, Revive Spa offers its signature Turquoise Body Ritual and the unique Sami Zen energy treatment, which includes chamomile and pumice body scrub and concludes with a heated crystal stone massage; the 90-minute treatment is inspired by ancient therapies of Japanese Zen and Sweden's native Samers. Some services incorporate indigenous extracts, and many offerings—the Desert Rain, the Sonoran Sands Herbal Polish, and Mesquite Clay Wrap among them—highlight the spa's Sonoran Desert backdrop. Salon services are also available.
