TAW--I posted on this thread, but in 2004. Since then I have returned to Red Mountain several times for girlfriend retreats. It is a perfect place for that! They redid the rooms and the spa, and it is very nice. The spa has a ton of treatments...almost too much. But they are good. Just hard to narrow down all the choices. I think the only negative about Red Mountain is if you fly into Las Vegas. It is fine for flying into, but after spending time at the spa, the LV airport is a jolt to the system, lol!

Laurenzo........we went to One and Only Palmilla last year for our anniversary. We are headed back again in August for the 24th anniversary. We also went to One and Only Ocean Club several years ago. It's nice but nothing like Palmilla.

jetset--Most of the time we opted for the guided hikes in the mornings. They have changed the hikes and there are now 3 levels instead of 4. We always go for the hardest ones. The hikes are different each day, with different guides. We have done a few hikes on our own, basically just walking from the resort up into snow canyon and then doing our own thing.

They have cooking demonstrations which are REALLY good! The chef is great, and the demo's are limited to a handful, so you need to sign up as soon as the sign ups are posted.

The treatments...there are SO many. Our usuals always unclude the hot stone and the swedish, but we have also done the reflexology which we liked. I have also done the marine algae detox wrap and my girlfriend did the mountain glow as well as a custom aroma massage. We have had regular manicures and pedicures, as well as the raw earth pedicure (worth it!). Tiffany is my favorite person at the spa. I don't know how many years she has been there, but after having her the first time, I request her each time and she is still there and still great.

The tai chi and yoga classes are a lot of fun as well.

I have gone with a group as large as 13 down to just 2 of us. There are a few couples, but mostly it seems to be women.

mms~ fantastic details.. I almost had a friend talked into going, but she thought it was church affiliated despite my pleas to change her mind..

so this year, solo or not, I want to go. Thanks again, J.

jetset--I don't know if they are church affiliated, but the area is obviously heavily Mormon. When we went the first time, we had to bring our own alcohol. They have wine now that you can purchase with your meal, and they have some nice wines such as Silver Oak. Anyway, we met several ladies who were there by themselves and having a great time. Either way, GO! Heck, maybe I will go, lol!

Hi,
Which spa would you recommend for a day guest?
I recently went to a very nice spa and as a day guest you could use the facilities all day which included a fitness center,purifying bath ritual, infinity pool, relaxation room and spend the day in a cozy robe! Do either of these spas have this type of atmosphere for day guests? i've looked at their websites, but hard to tell from that, so would like to hear from anyone who has been there.
