Nestled in the hills of Carlsbad, the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club, and Spa is surrounded by lush landscapes and breathtaking views. The coastal-chic AAA Five-Diamond and Forbes Five-Star luxury resort is located on 200 lush acres overlooking the Batiquitos Lagoon and offers a variety of activities and amenities to keep guests active, entertained, and relaxed. Highlights include tennis, the the Aviara Golf Course, fitness center, and yoga. Visitors can also unwind in the game room or chill out poolside at the 3,200-square-foot multi-level pool complex.

The resort’s delicious dining options include casual cocktails and bites in the Park Lounge, fine dining at the Argyle Steakhouse, innovative Italian cuisine at Vivace, and California Bistro’s brunch buffet is not to be missed. For next-level relaxation, Aviara Spa offers tranquility and rejuvenation. We caught up with Spa Director Samantha Rhodes to learn more about the relaxing day spa where nature meets nurture.

Key Features: Our amenities include men’s and women’s locker facilities, each featuring a eucalyptus steam room, dry sauna, and whirlpool jacuzzi. All of our guests are offered lockers with spa robes, sandals, and laundry bags. We also provide jewelry bags for our female guests, as they tend to have valuable jewelry that needs safe keeping. Our marble showers provide our signature Plum, Persimmon and Coconut Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel, as well as the Eucalyptus Shower spray. We have a co-ed relaxation room known as the Solarium. The ceiling of the solarium is made of glass, which gives guests the feeling of being outdoors within the comfort of the spa walls.

Spa Snacks: We always offer a morning pastry and evening dessert in the Solarium. Our pastries are handmade by our amazing pastry team at the resort. Some of our most popular items are the coconut macaroons, pecan shortbread cookies, and caramelized banana cakes. We also have a selection of hot tea available to our guests in addition to organic African nectar iced tea, infused water, mixed nuts and dried fruit. At the end of each treatment, guests are offered a glass of water along with a delicious dark chocolate treat from Chuao Chocolatier.

Splurge Treatment: The most luxurious splurge treatment is definitely a combination of our Nurture at the Park Signature Massage and Facial. To start, our signature custom massage begins with macadamia and evening primrose oils, and finishes with a natural coconut sugar back scrub, paraffin foot treatment, and scalp treatment. Next, the Nurture at the Park Signature Facial provides a results-driven customized facial, enhanced with the age-defying benefits of our arctic berry peel and cold stone facial massage. A warm paraffin hand treatment reveals smooth supple hands as the feet are softened with a natural foot polish. These two treatments paired together are truly an indulgent head-to-toe experience.

Most Unique Treatment:  The most unique treatment is the Grounded Sole Massage. With this service, we focus on the parts of your body that connect you to the earth: your feet and legs. Hydrating shea butter and natural sugar exfoliate and soften the feet, while reflexology and hot stones massage are combined with the power of peppermint and rosemary, leaving guests feeling grounded and revitalized.

Featured Products: Our guests have the opportunity to take a piece of the spa home with them with our signature products: Plum, Persimmon and Coconut Lotion, Shower Gel, Shampoo and Conditioner. All of our facials feature Eminence Organic Skin Care products. We also feature Coola Organic Suncare products, Mer-Sea & Co Travel Wraps, Candles and Sweaters, and Alo Yoga Wear.
