Wow-oh-wow - there is a new diamond in the valley!! February 5, 2010 | 148 of 299 people found this review helpful
When I signed up for a one night stay after finding the Ritz via this site, I didn't realize it was the new kid on the block. Here is where the Wow-oh-wow comes in. The spa facilities almost defy description. There is a co-ed endless saltwater pool with waterfall surrounded by outdoor beds for relaxing or catching a drink or snack. If you need to warm up, there are two huge gas fire pits with comfy chairs and tables. If you want to be free as a bird on in Dove Valley, you can enjoy an outdoor shower, steam room, sauna, resting area or hot tub as au natural as is comfortable in the separate gender specific areas. If the weather is inclement, you can still warm up by another gas fireplace with comfy chairs and reading materials in yet another co-ed relaxation room with a cedar patch on the ceiling that adds to a sauna feel without the extreme heat. Treatment rooms are beautiful and the facial & massage I had were tops!
All this is great. But for me, the beauty of this resort that goes well beyond the incredible beauty of this resort is that it is not only “family friendly”, they designed it for folks with kids who still want to enjoy a solitary spa experience. At the complete other side of the resort is a water slide and amazing cabanas that actually have dvd players, fridges and a small TV so you can bring your child’s favorite DVD – a must for me with a child too young to really enjoy the beauty of the resort.
They have summer camp like offerings so the kids can play while I play guilt free in the age 14 and older completely secluded, quite and restful spa.
There are plenty of onsite dining choices along with a fabulous restaurant (Core) with an open kitchen where you can watch the action – who needs theme parks?
I’ll be back with my daughter long before she is old enough to join me in a spa treatment – yay!!I would visit this business again? Yes
