About Mohonk Mountain House

Housed in a Victorian castle, Mohonk Mountain House is one of the last great 19th-century mountain resorts. But, while keeping its original character, the resort has added many 20th-century amenities, including a new spa. Built into the bluff, the spa, completed in the late summer of 2005, uses the latest environmental technologies (including a special heating and cooling system) and its treatments are just as progressive, using products such as Eminence and Naturopathica. The spa's fitness center offers everything from aerobics to meditation to ai chi (a combination of stretching, tai chi, and meditation that takes place in a pool).

Major Disappointment
Rarely do I write a review, and never a bad one. However, after my recent and first visit to this spa, and having read prior to coming that Conde Nast voted it #1, I was very much taken aback by what I found. I'm a true spa connoisseur on many levels. When my finance offered to do something nice to reward ourselves, he booked the Mohonk to impress me. We rarely have alone time together, and we both were looking forward to a splendid day. When we tried to book a bath service, we were talked into using the "mineral pool." What mineral pool are you talking about? This is an outdoor hot tub! The marketing of this experience is highly exaggerated. The place was cold, loud, terrible service, non-existent spa fare and refreshments...sorry, I don't like getting water out of a faucet. Yappy young spa attendants wouldn't shut their pie holes, massage therapist that fumbled with a non-popular massage type, I could go on, but I'm just worn out after writing a letter to the spa director. So disappointed, and I wouldn't recommend this place. Save up for a real destination spa. This place is dated, and worn out.

Beautiful Spa

Favorite part of Mohonk Mt House
No visit to Mohonk Mountain House is complete without a visit to the Spa. The staff is friendly and professional. The waiting area is comfortable and the view is beautiful. The whole area is peaceful. I have tried many different treatments and they all have been wonderful! A perfect place to " rest, relax, renew"

Amazing Spa Experience
Visited here with my sisters and just loved every minute of it. We had facials in the morning and massages in the afternoon. Everything was amazing from the treatments to the staff to the incredible views. Can't wait to go back!

Mohonk Spa
I have visited this spa twice. Both times the ladies at the spa desk have been snobbish and unhelpful. It seems the attitude is not that they are there to be of service but rather to explain rules....of which there are many. I hope someone will be able to explain the concept of friendliness to them. I have bought services for two of my daughters, because I did not want to disappoint them. However, I have been disappointed twice and will not try again...or recommend. PS Found out today that although the Mohonk spa comes up on the Spa-finder website, when I walked in with $200 worth of spafinder gift certificates, these are not accepted at Mohonk...this was explained as..."you can read this in small print on the website"...Sure enough, it's there...small print!

They Don't Accept Spa Finder Gift Certificates
I got married on Saturday and stayed at Mohonk after to get some spa treatments. A friend had gifted me a gc to spa finder because she thought it was a participating did I when I researched it. When I went to pay they said they "have a relationship with spa finder but dont accept their gift certificates". I though that was annoying...wish when I looked up Mohonk it told me that as it is misleading. Spa was ok. I loved my facialist and the products used were awesome but its small and kind of basic. Loved the bathing suit spinner and mineral pool although it was a bit small. Mohonk Mountain house is crowded and has a Pocono like feel so be warned. Rooms are awesome though. Especially the Victorian Room which has a fireplace.

super relaxing
Have been going to mountain house every year for past 16, thrilled when they opened the spa! It is beautiful, clean and relaxing. Great for couples,my husband and I go together, relax in mineral bath and co-ed lounge. It is a wonderful get away I always look forward to. Staff is professional and they have wonderful treatments. Highly recommend.

Wonderful atmosphere
I have been to a few spas but this is my favorite. I usually go with friends or family and what makes this better than most is the facilities. You are welcome to lounge around in a seat, the mineral hot tub or the steam room. This is not so in other spas offering day trips. I do think it is a little expensive, and they do add the gratuity, but I have never gone away unhappy. I have had facials and massages, trying different types. Family members have had body wraps, treatments. None of us have ever been unhappy. We love to sit and relax for the day. The only thing is we wish they would offer a light lunch.

Heard so much about the Spa. what a JOKE! I could not believe they added an 18% tip to my bill. NEVER NEVER again. the lobby of the Spa looked more like an over crowded flea market with all the CRAP they had on sale.

New York Heaven!!--Michael Manis Jericho NY
I have visited Mohonk Mountain House several times but only recently stayed for two nights with my wife. We took complete advantage of the spa and wellness afforded us. The staff was excellent and accommodations were great. A more tranquil environment cannot be found in NY. Visit and enjoy this place. Michael Manis Jericho NY

Great area
I've been to this spa twice. First as an overnight guest and second, just for the day. It is located in beautiful surroundings, but very expensive if you choose to stay.

Fab Mountain Retreat!
I went here for a girls' getaway and it was amazing. But maybe there needs to be a few more dollar signs on that price rating! This place is very expensive. * Accommodations: First rate! This hotel presents a wonderful old fashioned mountain lodge charm not easily found this far from the Rockies. Make sure you grab a drink and sit on the back porch to enjoy and relax! * Things to do: We are lean mean hiking machines and we hiked the 10-mile ridge right nearby (Minnewaska (sp?)). Also we ran around the gardens and visited the ice rink (closed for the season but a must-do for us come winter). Also you can head into New Paltz for some interesting shopping. * Food: Breakfast was so-so but dinner was terrific. * SPA: The all-important spa review! The facilities were amazing and very unique. I had the Sports Massage which eased my sore muscles very well and the moisture drench facial. I was well treated to a QUIET and relaxing spa experience. The staff was professional and made me feel welcome. This place hires top-notch service personnel.

relazing with nature
My husband and kids took me here for Mother's Day and I honestly am a changed woman from that weekend. I spent the Saturday in the spa while they hiked the trails around the resort. On Sunday we had a lovely Mother's Day Brunch and took a horse and buggy ride around the property. I came back so refreshed that I have made a lot of lifestyle changes in the last 90 days. The only thing I didn't like was the bed was a bit small so I guess that means I need a few more lifestyle changes !!! The setting is exquisite - 1 hour from New York City by car or train. It is a bit expensive but less than many others with less character. GO and explore this amazing place.

Luxury in a mountain setting close to NYC
The variety and quality of the massage offerings, the heavenly beauty indulgences, the GORGEOUS facility complete with mineral pool, swimming pool, steam name it...and the delightful staff make Mohonk a get-away like no other. The setting of this hotel is rejuvenating in itself. I'd return in a heart beat!
