Spa Profile: Anda Spa at Hotel Ivy
Hotel Ivy, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Minneapolis is a historic landmark located in Minnesota that connects guests to the Convention Center, Nicollet Mall, and Guthrie Theatre with seven miles of skyway. Featuring 136 rooms, 10-foot floating ceilings, a cutting-edge fitness center, and the city’s premier spa destination, the pet-friendly property offers guests the ultimate in comfort and understated elegance.
Anda Spa is Hotel Ivy’s newly redesigned wellness retreat, a 17,000 square-foot space that features nine treatment rooms, a couple’s suite, a self-serve café, as well as a wide variety of hydrotherapy offerings in its luxurious quartz spa and sauna. We spoke with Spa Director LeAnne Erickson, who shared her favorite spa treatments, splurge-worthy services, and more.
Why You’ll Love It: The thoughtfulness from the beginning to the end of the customer journey.
Key Features: Technogym fitness center, quartz spa featuring light therapy experience showers, whirlpool, co-ed dry sauna, steam room, aura meditation lounge, and relaxation lounge.
Bonus: Anda Spa is rooted in balance with a strong focus on mind, body, and spiritual well-being. Every treatment ritual will begin with a Naturopathica Aromatic Alchemy to set your intention for the treatment ritual and close with our “re-boot” to bring you back into your senses.
Insider’s Tip: Nourishing the spirit begins from the inside out. As a massage therapist and esthetician myself, finding harmony in life or “unplugging” from the world even briefly awakens my senses. Massage in my personal self-care practice isn’t a luxury—it’s a necessity for living a well-balanced life.
Snacks Served: We feature a grab-and-go café with a wide variety of local purveyors such as NorthStar Kombucha. In addition to our café, we feature Gem Elixir. Quite simply, it's any water enlivened and restructured by the natural vibration of gemstones. Each product incorporates a sealed glass gempod or vial filled with a unique gemstone blend, providing a modern, hygienic way to transform everyday water into gem water in just 7-10 minutes. The unique gem blends are designed to transform your water and support your mind, body, and spirit.
Insider’s Favorite: The Night Spa: Suite Serenity. Couples are invited to step away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and rediscover each other with our bespoke Night Spa, where our lovely Anda Spa is exclusively yours. Begin your evening journey by soaking in the quartz spa or detox in our crystal sauna together before your Alchemy Aroma Journey to create a custom scent used in a restorative ritual.
The journey continues with an invigorating dry brushing to stimulate the senses before being cocooned in a warm shea butter wrap with an indulgent hot oil scalp treatment and side-by-side, full-body massages. Following your journey, we invite you to sip from our selection of Rishi Teas infused with rose quartz (the crystal of universal love) to conclude this restorative bonding ritual.
Splurge Treatment: The Ultimate Zen Ritual. Re-center the mind and pamper the body from head-to-toe with our most indulgent experience. Featuring an ultra-hydrating scrub, full-body wrap, hot oil scalp ritual, and full-body massage, this luxurious treatment brings healing to each part of the body, while a personalized aroma-sensory element awakens the deepest parts of the mind…and a Zen state of relaxation and wellness.
Unique Treatment: The Rose Quartz-Infused Bath Soak features an elixir created exclusively for Anda Spa with soft Sambac jasmine, French lavender, Rose Absolute, and Ylang Ylang blended with Dead Sea Salt, kaolin clay, cocoa butter, and vibrationally-attuned rose quartz to instill feelings of peace and deep inner healing.
