The European-style spa has 26 treatment rooms, in addition to separate men's and women's lounges with saunas, steam rooms, baths, cold plunge pools, and, of course, Kohler fixtures. Bathed in yellows and greens, with soft music playing, the spa offers a soothing ambience, while sleek black-and-white tile and tumbled stone accents create a sophisticated touch.
