Skaná Spa at Turning Stone

Relaxing treatments combine with American Indian Culture to create an amazing spa experience.


The Oneida Indian Nation-owned Turning Stone Resort Casino has established itself as a premier resort destination in the Northeast. Located between Utica and Syracuse in scenic Central New York, you’ll find the award-winning Skaná Spa in The Lodge, an exclusive 95-suite AAA Four Diamond award-winning luxury hotel, which combines an Adirondack Great Camp aesthetic with contemporary comforts. The 33,000-square-foot spa, named with the Oneida word for peace, invites discerning spa-goers to indulge in up-to-the-minute spa treatments, as well as those inspired by the rich, therapeutic healing traditions of American Indians.
Golfers can take advantage of three championship 18-hole golf courses masterfully designed by Tom Fazio, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Rick Smith to incorporate the area's rolling, verdant terrain to stunning effect. An 800-seat cabaret-style Showroom, and 5,000-seat Event Center host top-star entertainment with music, comedy and theatre, and the high-energy casino, provides excitement around the clock.

The treatment menu and the spa design at Skaná are founded on American Indian healing principles and cultural influences. ("Skaná" is the Oneida word for peace.) The 33,000-square-foot facility has 12 treatment rooms, including a private VIP suite, full-service salon, fitness center and therapeutic co-ed mineral pool. With a welcome area inspired by a traditional longhouse, Skaná nestles an indoor herb garden adjacent to the private VIP Suite. Light cuisine is served in the informal spa cafe.

Modern treatments combine natural products (including Naturopathica and Kerstin Florian) and herbs, such as sweet grass, cedar and sage, used by American Indians for centuries to promote harmony, health and beauty. Signature spa treatments, including the Sage Stone Massage, focus on the use of herbal and mineral wraps, warm stone therapy and reviving soaks to restore balance and harmony. Treatments begin with The Balancing Waters Ritual, incorporating benefits of the steam rooms, saunas, whirlpools and co-ed mineral pool.
