While the Wellness Weekend occurs only once this spring, guests have other opportunities to experience the restorative features of the resort. The newest offering at the spa, the Ashiatsu Massage invokes a state of profound relaxation as a barefoot therapist walks across the body using highly effective strokes and deep pressure. The resort is the first in Lake Tahoe to offer this type of treatment, which is available as either a 50-minute treatment for $185 USD or an 80-minute treatment for $265 USD.

This April and May, spa guests will enjoy special pricing on three signature treatments: 50-minute Signature Organic Massage, 50-minute Organic Facial and 80-minute Signature Manicure and Pedicure. Treatments start at $129 USD each. The Spring Spa Getaway for Two, available between May 6th and June 13th, invites visitors to escape to the mountains and enjoy deluxe accommodations, a waived resort fee and choice of one Spring Spa Treatment per person, per day. The Spring Spa Getaway package starts at $399 USD per room, per night in deluxe accommodations.
