This July, the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool celebrates its 120th birthday. To continue the legacy, Glenwood Hot Springs will be opening its new full service spa, the Spa of the Rockies, which will be located in the original elegant sandstone bathhouse and serving guests in September 2008.

“The Spa of the Rockies is a new element that fits so well into our theme of relaxation and health here,” says Barbara Clarke, director of sales and marketing. “The spa construction maintains the historic integrity of the site, with very modern comforts. The legacy of wellness and the sense of place are central to its concept. For example, we’ll have local and regional natural spa products that will be used in treatments.”

“Over 100 years ago, the Glenwood Hot Springs was known for sunken Roman tubs in the old stone bathhouse and served a clientele that had the means and desire to experience a unique Rocky Mountain spa and vacation,” says Hank Bosco, Glenwood Hot Springs president. “Some things have changed. The Glenwood Hot Springs are an accessible, affordable and fun place for the thousands of people who visit each year. But other things have stayed the same. The allure of the relaxing pace and setting that have been enjoyed for over a century largely remains unchanged.”

The multi-million dollar Spa of the Rockies will feature nine treatment rooms including one specialized hydrotherapy treatment room for Vichy shower treatments. Five private, claw-foot hydrotherapy tubs will be used for mineral baths and herbal soaks. Other treatments will include massage; facials; body polishes, masks and wraps; manicures and pedicures; as well as body waxing and make-up application. The Spa of the Rockies will be sophisticated, yet warm and welcoming.
