No trip to The Boulders would be complete without visiting The Golden Door Spa. Uponentering one is greeted by a large wood burning fireplace that takes center stage in the circular main room. The gym and fitness area are located right of the main room and steam, sauna, and relaxation area to the left. Outdoor, a thirty meter, pool and Jacuzzi complete the fitness area. Koi ponds and gentle babbling brooks weave through the landscaped rock beds.

 

A retreat from the chaotic world of stress and demands, the Steam room, a favorite of mine anywhere, was so relaxing with high heat steam penetrating into the deep muscles, it was so very warm, calming and truly soothed and erased the morning travel tension. So to allow guests additional enjoyment, The Golden Door Spa provides ice cloths, to cool pressure points, at the Stream Room entrance.

The Japanese Soaking Bath, similar to a Jacuzzi without the jets and high temperature, provides a slightly lower water temperature than the outdoor Jacuzzi and is located outside the steam room. Resting lounges are provided to add to the complete stress reduction. Gentle Japanese garden sounds along watercress drink and lemon grass juice.

The Golden Door Spa’s Fitness area consists of a full gym with cardio machines and free weights. Classes are provided in a variety of mind/body disciplines from Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates and strength training to outdoor sports preparation and exercise including Golden Door Power Walk, Golf Stretch in preparation for a day on the links and Conditioning and Boulder Hikes on the 12-million-year old Boulder piles.  Additional mental focused activities include Neurobics, a brain fitness class designed to increase mental awareness and Labyrinth Meditation and Awareness through Movement.
