Spa Profile: Spa Pechanga
Known for its abundant hillside vineyards and golf courses, the city of Temecula in Southern California is also famous for Pechanga Resort & Casino, an upscale hotel with the largest casino floor on the West Coast. The resort is also home to Spa Pechanga, a 25,000 square-foot spa that offers luxurious treatment rooms and relaxation areas with panoramic views of the surrounding hillside.
The Spa is inspired by native botanicals and its various therapies integrate the healing powers of nature and the highest quality of service, embracing its mission of calming the mind, nurturing the body, and rejuvenating the spirit. Spa Pechanga Assistant Manager, Samantha Mansell, takes us behind-the-scenes of the luxury spa to give the scoop on splurge-worthy services, insider tips, and more:
Why You’ll Love It: Guests tell us they enjoy the ambiance, services, and offerings at Spa Pechanga the best.
Key Features: Spa Pechanga is a two-story, 25,000 square-foot Native American-inspired day spa with 17 treatment rooms, a full-service spa and salon, and a fitness center that offers different classes and wellness coaching. The spa provides infused water, complimentary exclusive treats inspired by native and local ingredients, a dry Sauna, wet steam rooms, hydra-pools, men’s and women’s locker rooms, and private pools and Jacuzzis with resort cabanas and daybeds.
Bonus: Spa Pechanga offers complimentary refreshments, fresh berries, infused waters and native teas.
Insider’s Tip: The artwork throughout the spa is created by Native American artists to the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Mission Indians, the owners of Spa Pechanga. Spa Pechanga sits on the Tribe’s reservation.
Snacks Served: Spa Pechanga is inspired by native botanicals and is therefore wellness-focused. Because of this, we serve healthy native-inspired muffins exclusively created for Spa Pechanga by our in-house pastry chef called Chia (Páasal) Blueberry Muffins (Páasal repairs the body’s cells, supplies omega 3 fatty acids, lowers blood pressure, and promotes a healthy heart and strong bones). Other offerings include a special mix of berries, nuts and infused waters.
Unique Treatment: Our most unique treatment is the Healing Honey Massage, which is a healing rhythmic full-body massage using warm natural honey. The unique therapy continues with a beeswax thermal pad over the back that infuses propolis into the dermis, boosting the immune system and softening the skin. Additionally, a hydrating milk and honey facial mask is applied with carefully selected, naturally active ingredients that exfoliate and nurture the skin.
Splurge Treatment: We highly recommend our native-inspired Signature Body Ritual: The Great Oak Purification. It starts with a fresh grounding aroma of our “tree of life” to relax the mind and body. The body is then dry brushed to exfoliate the skin and detoxify the lymph, followed by a warm sage and lavender-infused clay wrap. The Great Oak Purification is accompanied by a gentle jojoba oil scalp massage, and finished with a full body Himalayan salt stone massage using warm oil infused with native white sage. When completed, the ritual is concluded with a rosehip tea.
Insider’s Favorite: My favorite treatment is the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, which induces a deep relaxation, leaving you euphoric and renewed. Salt stones from the Himalayan Mountains stimulate specific meridians in the body to induce deep relaxation, reduce inflammation, and improve sleep. It’s topped off with Spa Pechanga’s signature “tree of life” essential oil.
