There are two kinds of escapes—those involving parachute leaps from exploding enemy zeppelins and the other kind. Today’s Groupon falls into the latter category: for $25, you get $50 worth of spa services at Gold Canyon Golf Resort. The resort is located about 10–15 minutes southeast of Apache Junction off US 60 (about 45 minutes from downtown Phoenix), and 17 hours from Laramie, Wyoming.
Gold Canyon's spa features a full range of bliss-basting services to put clients at ease. Try a sports-specific massage technique such as the Eagle (60 minutes, $70) or the deep, muscle-melting techniques of the Superstition hot-stone therapy (60 minutes, $90). Slip into a volcanic-clay body wrap to revitalize the outer covering of your bonesuit (90 minutes, $135), or moisturize your emotion maker with a hydrating mineral-mask facial (60 minutes, $85). Prep and pamper nails with a Gold Canyon spa manicure ($30) and pedicure ($50), and roam the wilderness with meticulously groomed keratin. For a manly man-sperience at the manspa, indulge in a gentlemen's facial, which addresses issues specific to beard-prone skin and finishes with a warm, soothing towel (60 minutes, $85).
Gold Canyon Golf Resort offers numerous other amenities (not included with this Groupon), including an attractive golf course, a fitness center, and several restaurants. Even if you feel like doing absolutely nothing, the breathtaking vistas of the cactus-dotted American Southwest will keep you staring at canyon walls rather than stucco walls.
Good for spa services only.
