8 Ways to Have a Luxurious Day at the Spa

One of the best things you can do for yourself is book a day at a Utah resort spa. Not only is it relaxing, but taking time for yourself and slipping away from the hustle and bustle of life might be exactly what you need to recharge. Whether you’re new to booking spa services or you’re a relaxation novice, here are a few tips to help you make the most of your day at the spa.

  1. Find the Perfect Spa for Your Needs

    There are many luxury spas in Utah, each offering different services. So, which one is right for you? First, look at the list of their services and determine which ones you’d like to schedule for the day. At The Spa at Zermatt, our first-class spa offers many services you’ll love, including various massages, facials, scrubs, wraps, and much more. As one of the leading luxury spas in Utah, we have an extensive list of services to help you feel your best.

  2. Schedule Services in a Particular Order

    To maximize your day at the spa, consider the order in which you book services. For example, facials should be scheduled after a massage. Here is an example of a booking order to follow for services:

    1. Body wrap
    2. Massages
    3. Facials
    4. Manicure and pedicure

If you have specific questions regarding the order in which you should book your services at Zermatt, our friendly staff will gladly provide suggestions.

  1. Be Prepared Before You Go

    You can do a few things to prepare for your spa day. First, ensure you’ve eaten a light, healthy meal before you go. After all, you won’t want to arrive at the spa feeling full from a heavy meal. Ensure that you’re staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water beforehand, and bring a snack or two if you plan on staying at the spa for a while.

  2. Arrive Early

    Arriving early will ensure you’re on time for your services and give you plenty of time to decompress and relax. Many spas in Utah offer snacks or tea in their waiting rooms to provide you with a few moments to yourself. Some spas will also have you fill out paperwork while you’re waiting, which will have you note any products or prescriptions you’re currently taking or any medical conditions that may interfere with treatment. Giving yourself some spare time before your treatment begins will leave you feeling less rushed and more prepared for the experience.

  3. Put Away Your Distractions

    unplug from media devices to relax at the spa
    A spa day is an opportunity to focus on you, so eliminate all the distractions! While you may be tempted to keep your phone around, it’s best to lock it up with your other valuables, such as keys and jewelry. Getting these things out of the way will help clear your mind and help you relax. As a bonus, you won’t have to worry about carrying clutter around and run the risk of losing things.

  4. Speak Up During Your Services

    While your spa day is expected to be a fantastic experience, you may also have uncomfortable moments. The water may be too hot, or a treatment may hurt a little. The spa’s aestheticians, therapists, and assistants want you to have the most comfortable experience possible, so don’t be afraid to speak up if you are in pain or feel uneasy with any part of the treatment.

  5. Take a Friend

    While booking spa services by yourself can be an escape, having a friend join you for treatments might feel more comfortable, especially if it is your first time. Having a friend or a partner join you in treatments can help you relax and provide companionship throughout the experience.

  6. Clear Your Schedule Afterward

    Who wants to go to work after taking some time off at the spa? To maximize the benefits of a spa experience, we recommend turning the rest of the day into a self-care day. Take any stressful plans off the schedule, and keep the rest of the day easy. Do some yoga, relax at home with your favorite movie, or simply have an easy night in with just yourself.
