(Deer Valley, Utah) – September 28, 2011 – SpaFinder, Inc., the global spa resource, has announced that The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge has been named among the Top 10 Spas worldwide for “BEST FOR” Winter Sports in the prestigious SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards. The Spa also won "BEST TREATMENT” for its Nordic Princess offering.
“Receiving this recognition from the readers of SpaFinder is truly an honor. Whether guests are simply looking to unwind after a day of outdoor activities or an oasis for overall wellness, The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge delivers outstanding results,” said Russ Olsen, CEO of Stein Eriksen Lodge.
The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge, an elite luxury resort spa, is committed to holistic wellness in every aspect of the Forbes Four Star Spa. The architecture and design are inspired by the surrounding mountains with the purposeful use of copper, water, stone and rich fabrics to create a harmonious environment. Each of the 16 treatment room is aglow from hand-crafted naturally detoxifying salt lamps. A full line of locally crafted products featuring indigenous ingredients, such as cedar, sage, and salt are used to invigorate the mind and body. Signature treatments, such as The Great Salt Stone Therapy, Pigment Balancing Facial, and Hiker Boot Relief treatment are unique to the mountain spa and are the creation of Spa Director Jill VanAusdal.
In addition to customized treatments, Lodge and Spa guests may also enjoy expanded fitness facilities and a year-round heated pool with breathtaking mountain views.
To help spa enthusiasts choose the ideal spas for their specific goals, SpaFinder each year asks its readers to name their top picks for the best spas in unique categories, from yoga to accommodations to golf to romance.
“SpaFinder was the first to offer people the opportunity to vote for their favorite spas in diverse categories, providing a fast, accessible way for spa-goers to make decisions based on what’s important to them,” said SpaFinder President Susie Ellis. “They have become an important consumer guide, as well as an industry accolade.”
The 2011 Awards were based on votes submitted worldwide at SpaFinder’s global consumer websites (including SpaFinder.com) and by readers of SpaFinder publications. Voters were asked to cast ballots only for spas they’ve personally visited within the past three years.
Complete List of 2011 Winners
Readers’ Choice Award winners will be featured on SpaFinder.com, SpaFinder’s Club Spa newsletter and blog and in the NewBeauty SpaFinder Guide to Global Spa, Wellness & Beauty, which will be on newsstands in November.
