                            destination once synonymous with golf, Scottsdale’s increasing number
                             of luxury spas has turned the desert city into a year-round Mecca for spa
                               lovers. The Beauty Show™ visited in the heat of mid-summer to take
                      advantage of low season rates but we were surprised to find that these popular
                      resorts are just as busy during their so called “slow” season as they are during
                                              the peak fall and winter months.
                                   Here’s what we discovered on this spa-hopping expedition:

                       SANCTUARY RESORT
                  I  n the shadow of the Praying Monk - that
                     rocky, red outcropping perched high
                  above this luxury boutique resort is the
                  Sanctuary, a stylish property with a Zen
                      One of the features that sets the Sanc-
                  tuary Spa apart from others, not only in
                  Scottsdale but elsewhere, is how it embrac-
                  es nature. Here, the waiting area and the
                  treatment rooms have doors that open onto
                  a Zen-inspired courtyard offering guests an
                  up-close view of water and swaying ornamental grasses.
                      The path to the spa winds past the vast infinity pool, the largest in Scottsdale and through a Zen-inspired garden
                  where the scent of essential oils announces that the spa is nearby.
                      In keeping with its Eastern theme, one of the spa’s signature treatments is the Table Top Thai Massage. This ancient
                  massage, traditionally given while the client lies on a futon-like floor mat, is being North Americanized by having clients
                  lie on a table. Loose fitting Thai-style pajamas are worn and the therapist gently pulls and pushes limbs and kneads
                  muscles in patterns of gentle rocking and rhythmic motion. It’s a simultaneous massage and stretch session that’s often
                  referred to as Yoga on the table.
                                                                      Another signature treatment is the Onsen Longevity Body Treatment
                                                                   which includes a full body exfoliation, a foot treatment with self-heating

                                                                along the client’s back and arms. It’s very relaxing but during the summer heat it can be

                                  THE BOULDERS
H    ome of the Golden Door Spa, The Boulders Resort is located several hundred feet
     higher in elevation than many of the other resorts in the area so it tends to be a bit
cooler even during those triple-digit days of summer. Golf carts are used to take guests
along pathways that wind between rocks and beautiful desert vegetation to the private
and charming cottages that make for a delightful ambience.
   Inspired by the Native American belief that turquoise is a protective color, The Golden
Door Spa’s signature Turquoise Wrap is “staged” in a Vichy shower room. Beginning with
a turquoise-colored bath in a hydrotherapy tub, followed by a dry brushing with blue
organic cornmeal, then a body mask with ionized turquoise clay, the wrap treatment is
                                         rounded out with the shaking of rain drop reeds,
                                         a quick chant and the sound of native rhythms.
                                         Nice treatment, but one does feel a little rushed
                                         out the door at the end of it all.
                                            One of the more unique offerings at the re-

and meditation. Sycamore Mineral Springs offers it all.
     Located on 125 acres in the Sycamore Forest just three
miles from Avila Beach, one of the most pristine beaches in
the state, the historic property was transformed into a 72-room
retreat by King Ventures in the spring of 2003. While the facil-
ity cannot be classified as “luxurious,” accommodations are
comfortable, the environment is naturally beautiful, there are nurturing meals,
groomed trails, a variety of healing therapies and, of course, the signature min-
eral springs that give the property its name.
   “One of our goals,” says Coryell, “is helping to create more informed consum-
ers.” With about 40 years of experience in the industry, Coryell brings her exper-
tise as a psychotherapist, nutritionist, herbalist and yoga instructor to the project.
“We are committed to educating about the true meaning of the word “spa,” she
says, “and the retreat as a healing art.”

Barbara region from the Chumash Indians.
   Their military fortress, the Presidio, still stands. It’s an elegant whitewashed adobe struc-

street, Le Bon Café serves up specialties such as salads, salmon and lamb—mostly organic
and free-range. Vietnamese/French Chef, Jean Paul Luvanvi and his co-owner mother Kim
Shaw combine raw food with Pan-Asian textures to create eclectic health food. Jean Paul,
along with his team of consulting nutritionists and physicians, offer nutritional workshops,
catering and custom-designed menus.
   Spanish, Mediterranean, and Moorish architectural styles dominate Santa Barbara and
its landmark Courthouse is a gorgeous example of Moorish influence. The historic prop-

stunning panoramic view of the city!
   Three blocks away, The Taj Café offers patrons a taste of East India. Here, tradition-

Spanish Reviva, and Asian design.
