The spacious August Moon Spa is a tranquil respite from the stress of everyday living. The six Asian-themed treatment rooms, designed by local artist Kumi Korf, draw inspiration from the five elements of nature–earth, water, fire, air, and wood–and each has a private whirlpool tub. The spa offers a full menu of healing services bringing Eastern and Western therapies together, including massage, facials, body wraps and scrubs, vinotherapy, and spa day packages. (It’s hard to imagine anything more relaxing than August Moon’s Vichy shower waterfall treatment or the aromatherapeutic Five Elements August Moon Bath!) Specialized face and body treatments are also available for teens.

If you’re looking for an intense indoor workout, you’ll enjoy the uninterrupted views of the valley from the exercise room. The spa’s steam rooms and sauna are available to all hotel guests.
