Menu of Services

The spacious August Moon Spa is a tranquil respite from the stress of everyday living. The seven 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 rubs 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.

enjoyed our stay
I really like La Tourelle . I took my adult daughter there for some Mother /daughter relaxation time. The spa was wonderful ( clean , relaxing , nice staff) we both enjoyed our massages and felt very relaxed after. They also are close to some nice hiking. The rooms are nice but truthfully could use some updateing , still for the price this is one of the best places to just get away and get a quality massage. Would highly recommend.

A relaxing day
I am a grad student at Cornell. We wanted to try August Moon to take a step back from the intense workload of the classes. Three of us tried different massages and one of us had a facial and manicure. All of them were wonderful. Place is cosy and serene, staff is friendly and professional. Can't wait to go again...

Wonderful experience!
The accommodations were really nice. We stayed a King Room and considering the tempertures of Ithaca during winter, the room was TOASTY! The spa treatment was exquisite. We had the "Share the Experience" massage, a foamy seaweed soak and reflexology. The overall environment was peaceful. We can not wait to return.
