Personalized, holistic treatments at the 21,000-square-foot Spa Avania (meaning tranquil in Greek) are inspired by natural light, music, diet, exercise, and the body clock: energizing treatments for morning, balancing and rejuvenating ones for midday, and calming ones for evening. Spa interiors feature volcanic stone water sculptures, black granite, earth slate, and cherry woods, and hues of sage green, sand, and bronze. There are 19 treatment rooms, including the couple’s Avania Suite, which comprises a private patio with whirlpool, rain shower, private restroom, and indoor shower; there is also a beauty salon, sauna, steam area, and hot and cold plunges at this artful indoor/outdoor oasis. A full menu of calming, hydrating and anti-aging facials, clay and Monticelli mud wraps, and massage modalities such as hot stone, sports, Thai and reflexology is available to help create a spa experience choreographed to the body’s ideal timing.
The 24-hour fitness center features LifeFitness equipment with built-in LCD workout displays and digital TV monitors, and private and group exercises classes are offered. Music plays underwater in the outdoor coed heated pool, which contains French Celtic minerals, and the spa's serene outdoor spaces also include a lotus pond, a cascading waterfall, and a trellis-covered relaxation area.
