Menus of Services / Classes

The Spa at Mohonk Mountain House is carved into a natural glacier-formed stone bluff overlooking Lake Mohonk. More than 600 tons of quartz conglomerate stone excavated from the site was recycled into stone walls, fireplaces, and retaining walls featured throughout the spa's interior and exterior. In order to create a feeling of "outside from within," Saratoga Associates (the architectural firm that designed the new spa) incorporated more than 200 windows and local timber beams and cedar shingles are used throughout the 30,000-square-foot spa. Two 80-foot-long glass-enclosed verandas connecting to a solarium with a stone fireplace provide views of the lake. Other features include an indoor pool, an outdoor heated mineral pool, and 16 treatment rooms. The men's locker room has a TV lounge, while the women's features a tea bar. A 2,000-square-foot "green roof" terrace, located off the fitness level, is planted with native flora and fauna; it provides a natural insulation for the building below (cutting down on energy needed to heat and cool).

The environment also plays a strong role in the spa menu, which is made up of treatments using indigenous ingredients. The Signature Elements of Nature: "Mohonk Red" Massage begins with a relaxation breathing technique, followed by a massage with the spa's signature body and bath oil and "Mohonk Red" witch hazel. Acupressure, Swedish, and Hawaiian lomi lomi massage, and traditional Thai stretches are used. The treatment ends with a guided power nap and a face spritz, and spa-goers receive a complimentary flacon of the spa's signature oil to take home.

The spa's fitness center has a motion room for Pilates, yoga, qi gong, and other offerings. (When the weather is mild, classes may also take place on the green roof.)

Totally earned ranking of Best Spa!
I have been to many of the top spas in the country (i'm a spa snob) and this one takes the cake. The staff is incredible and attentive from the second you check in. The locker room is impeccable as are the facilities. The indoor pool is great especially when it's too cold to go in the lake. Now the good stuff...The spa lounge is the most relaxing and beautiful space. It overlooks the mountain and lake and isn't just a boring room with 4 or 5 chairs like most spas, its a whole lounge experience! I spent hours relaxing in the soft robe in front of the huge fireplace reading after i was done with one service and waiting for the next. I never once felt disturbed or rushed. My massage was perfection. My husband and I did a couples massage which was very nice and romantic. I also got an incredibly relaxing scrub. I get massages once a month and thier people are VERY good at what they do. It was a perfect experience with the nicest amenities I've ever seen. I've been to many spas at top resorts around the country and many in Vegas (the spa mecca) and they ALL don't even hold a candle to Mohonk. I have NO idea what that other reviewer is talking about. I can only assume they were wearing grumpy pants.

Amazing place to relax in!
I enjoy the solarium the best! Imagine lying in a comfortable chaise lounge, with the sun beating into this glass-enclosed space, looking out into the vast expanse of the hills in the distance. The therapist calls and you are invited into a warm, comfortable space where your aches and tension melt away under the expert hands and fingers of the therapist. This is followed by a dip in the hot tub and it is back to the chaise lounge for me. I look forward to my next visit to the spa at the Mohonk Mountain House.

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
This is one of the most beautiful spas I have visited. Peaceful and beautiful. The massage was amazing. Definitely worth a visit.

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 spa...so 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.

Really?
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 room......you 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!
