Spa Profile: The Spa at Griffin Gate
Nestled in the Bluegrass Country hills near Lexington, Kentucky, Lexington Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa is within close proximity to Downtown and the Bourbon Trail. From an 18-hole championship golf course and a refreshing pool complex to luxurious guest suites and world-class restaurants, the stunning property offers an abundance of activities and experiences for everyone.
The Spa at Griffin Gate is the property’s full-service luxury spa, which offers a full menu of body treatments to help guests relax and rejuvenate. The spa combines the healing power of native minerals and natural herbs with the undeniable benefits of soothing spa services, paired with the finest products and personal advice that complement each treatment. We chatted with Spa Director Ellen Barton, who recommended treatments to try, shared insider tips, and more.
Why You’ll Love It: Guests love the relaxing environment of our spa. The first words out of their mouths when they walk in our doors are, “It smells amazing in here!” (Right now we have eucalyptus and grapefruit in our essential oil diffusers). They enjoy a wide variety of services, friendly and helpful staff, and talented service providers.
Key Features: We are a full-service spa featuring seven treatment rooms, including a couples’ massage room, a full-service salon, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, men’s and women’s lounges, men’s and women’s eucalyptus steam rooms, co-ed relaxation area, private outdoor patio with waterfall, and a spa boutique.
Bonus: Guests are served a complimentary glass of champagne and we can arrange to have a special spa cake delivered for special occasions.
Insider’s Tip: Spa guests who aren’t staying at the hotel receive a complimentary day pass to use at the property’s fitness center, pools, hot tubs, steam rooms, and relaxation areas before and after their spa services! They can even order room service, and have food and beverages delivered to our indoor or outdoor relaxation areas.
Snacks Served: We offer a variety of hot teas, fresh fruit, bottled water, and a special gemstone-infused water to promote wellness.
Splurge Treatment: The MoroccanOil Rejuvenation Ritual is a 110-minute service that includes a full-body scrub, an intense hydrating treatment, and a therapeutic hot stone massage, followed by a warm scalp and hair treatment.
Insider’s Favorite: I love the Eminence Organic VitaSkin Facial because our estheticians can create a customized treatment that is suited to your skin’s needs. I highly recommend trying the VitaSkin Facial plus dermaplaning, which leaves skin instantly and dramatically smoother and more radiant!
Unique Treatment: The Ultimate Unwind (80 or 110 minutes) combines a customized massage with Swedish and targeted deep-tissue techniques, followed by a rejuvenating foot scrub, an aromatherapy facial treatment, and a calming scalp massage.
Featured Products: Bluegrass Hemp Oil, Elemis, Eminence Organic Skin Care, Moroccanoil, Pevonia, and our private label Griffin Gate body lotion, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner.
