People with stressful jobs often struggle to relax, as do people who misguidedly built their home in an industrial pressure cooker. Outsource unwinding with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get one essential service at Hiatus Spa + Retreat (up to a $100 value), plus 30% off add-on services and a waived H-Circle membership initiation fee at the time of booking.
The wind-powered Hiatus Spa + Retreat pampers clients in 18 private rooms and a nail-therapy lounge, earning D Magazine's reader's choice awards for best spa and best mani-pedi in 2011 and attention for its green policies in Daily Candy. Licensed aestheticians get tough on blemishes during 50-minute facials, cleansing visages with aromatic steam, acupressure, and blackhead-sniffing police dogs.
During 40-minute Body Glow exfoliations, staffers rub down epidermises with a cocktail of essential oils, custom aromatherapy, and Dead Sea salts before a rainfall shower rejuvenates organ wrappings. Warm neck wraps and zero-gravity chairs ensconce patrons during the mani-pedi’s hand and foot massage, and vegan-friendly products by SpaRitual color nails. In relaxation outfits of fluffy robes, plush slippers, and pants crafted from cumulus clouds, patrons sip a free cup of tea before their sessions.
Hiatus Spa & Retreat
From mid-morning until as late as 9 p.m. seven days a week, the therapists of Hiatus Spa & Retreat practice the art of wellness in 17 private treatment rooms that tend to be as inviting as they are serene—a combination that has won the spa awards for best day spa, best massage, and other categories in D magazine's readers' choice polls. And whatever service clients to choose to experience, they'll reap the benefits of high-end products and equipment: massages incorporate custom-blended aromatherapy oils, facials achieve thorough exfoliation with Clarisonic brushes, and pedicures take place in zero-gravity chairs with heated neck wraps.
Hiatus Spa + Retreat's earthy interior reflects its commitment to both relaxation and green initiatives. Organic and plant-based products from Aveda come standard with spa services, and nail products are vegan-friendly. Hiatus also relies on eco-friendly infrastructure, including a wind-based power source, recycling efforts, and a custom water filtration system that eliminates the need to supply bottled water or divert a mountain stream through the lounge.
