The Spa at Alyeska
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.
Why You’ll Love It: Our greatest strength at Alyeska is our staff. We are a petite space working with amazing products, but our team is the heart of our business. Our team's dedication to their clients' well-being is what our guests love most.
Key Features: Our spa features a Vichy room with a Scots Hose. The Scots Hose is a unique type of Thalassotherapy that is similar to having deep tissue work with water.
Bonus: We have treatment rooms with a view that occasionally includes bear and moose.
Insider Tip: Book mid-week! We typically sell out on the weekends and while we pride ourselves on our peaceful atmosphere, our waiting area is calmer on weekdays.
Snacks Served: We offer guests a variety a herbal teas, tinctures and fruit-infused water.
Splurge: The Moisture Drench Package. This is the "go-to” for soft, supple and luxurious skin. This package includes a restorative scalp treatment, gentle and refining body scrub, and full-body massage using Morrocanoil’s Replenishing Intense Hydrating Treatment. The package is made complete with our Yonka Hydralessence Facial. You’ll be glowing!
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.
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.
Featured Products: Anthony, Archipelago, Aromatherapy Associates, Butter London, Hydropeptide, Jane Iredale, Moroccanoil, Naturopathica, Patchology, Phytomer, Sothys, Triggerpoint and Yonka.
