Open since 1994, The Hotel Alyeska is located in Girdwood—an upscale resort town in the state of Alaska. The chateau-style resort, which is set in a lush valley surrounded by mountain peaks, hanging glaciers and ocean views, is also home to The Spa at Alyeska, a luxury wellness destination that offers an impressive range of treatments including massages, facials and body treatments inspired by the Alaskan wilderness and nature. Jessica Moore, Spa Supervisor, gave us a special tour of the world-class spa and shared a few insider tips about the luxury wellness resort.

Most Unique Treatment: The Thai Bolus Treatment! This unique exfoliating experience taken from traditional Thai massage techniques seduces the senses and imparts exquisitely silky skin. After marine oil and salt gently polish the skin, warm fragrant linen bundles filled with marine salt crystals and lavender buds are applied to deliver warmth throughout this stretching massage. Inhale hypnotic perfume as the sachets are pressed onto aching muscles and energy meridians. This specific method soothes tension and focuses on pressure points to restore total body balance.

 Hiking is a popular activity at Alyeska Resort.

Insider Favorite: A staff favorite, the Sea Silk Body Mask is ideal for instant revitalization. This treatment is a remineralizing body wrap. A combination of essential oils (ylang-ylang, sage, sandalwood, basil and lavender) and trace minerals balance the body whether in need of relaxation or invigoration.
