The 11,000-square-foot spa is located on the hotel’s lower level. Upon entry to the spa, guests walk down a hallway lined with lanterns leading toward a wish tree, where they can set intentions prior to their treatment. The locker room area features changing stations, lockers, showers and a variety of snacks and teas. The relaxation lounge offers plush seating and tranquil music.


Visit the Alchemist Bar, where guests may create their own therapeutic topicals, oils, scrubs and tinctures with the provided herbal ingredients. The facilities also include eight treatment rooms, including a couples’ room with a waterfall soaking tub for two. Leaf Spa’s offerings vary seasonally to reflect each season’s best offerings. For fall, expect to see treatments utilizing pumpkin and cinnamon for their enzyme and antioxidant properties.
