If you’re looking for a fantastic spa day in which you literally leave your stress at the door, the JW Marriott San Antonio’s beautiful Lantana Spa is for you. Of course everything is already bigger in Texas, and at 26,000-square-foot facility, the Lantana Spa is the largest in Texas!
Upon arrival at Lantana Spa you will be given a piece of red ribbon for the “Seven Knots Ritual,” to release worries and stress and prepare you for the spa experience. In the past the Curanderos, Native American healer, suggest tying seven knots in the ribbon, one for each worry, the seventh knot creating a complete circle. Before starting your spa journey you leave the knots in a bowl with everyone else’s worries.
Spa treatments are extensive and heavenly and don’t end when the appointment does! Check out the entire list of treatments here and get the latest monthly specials. There are wonderful massages, facials, body treatments, treatments for two, and nail options. I had an organic massage that not only released the tension in my back but also made feel as if I could breathe more deeply afterwards!
I was guided by the attendant to the locker room where I could change into a luxurious fluffy robe.
Then I refreshed myself with some chilled cucumber infused water and meander from their beautiful outdoor, spa guest only pool, steam room, sauna, and maternity friendly inhalation room.
In addition to spa treatments, the resort also offers fitness classes and equipment. Complimentary day use with spa treatment!
After a fabulous treatment and possible workout, stop by Replenish Spa Bistro for a locally sourced meal filled with organic ingredients. Check out their latest specials here. During our tour of the facilities, we enjoyed lunch at the Bistro and sampled the amazing hummus, addicting guacamole, and rich corn chowder with jumbo lump crab.
Not ready to leave? Don’t! You can also book the treatment as part of a vacation package! Stay a couple days at the beautiful resort (more details to come in future posts!) Check out their latest spa vacation packages here a perfect treat for out of towners or staycationers alike.
And any product used during the services could be purchased in the spa’s boutique afterwards, prime for the holiday seasons coming up soon!
I would definitely take advantage of the spa treatment and make a day of it.
- Arrive early to complete paperwork and start the relaxation!
- Stop in their sauna or steam room to loosen up before your treatment
- Bring a swim suit to enjoy cocktails and get some sun, safely at a cabana or lounging in the beautiful pool
- Grab something to eat on your way out to prolong the relaxing journey
