The spa also offers spa parties and the services of a wedding planner and professional photographer, and beauty products and diverse skincare lines address skincare issues with moisturizers, cleansers, and masks.
Since opening its doors more than 20 years ago, Sundays Sun Spa—formerly known as Sundays Tanning Salon—has become the go-to place for guests looking to get bronze and lean in a spa-like environment. Curtains and crawling vines line the earth-toned studio, where certified staff members fastidiously maintain each piece of equipment with a 10-point sanitation procedure. Airbrush artists craft custom tans with a gold-plating mist made from natural, paraben-free ingredients. Their selection of high-pressure horizontal and standing UV beds sport fresh lamps for quick doses of color. To help slenderize bodies, they power up the Formostar infrared-body-wrap system, which is designed to boost metabolic rates and diminish cellulite while burning calories during a relaxing treatment.

Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights.
