Scottsdale, Arizona – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
On January 1, 2013, Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, a distinctive southwest resort and meeting destination in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, , will become the first luxury resort in the United States to implement Well & Being’s medically-guided and fully-customized wellness experience. Debuting its Well & Being at Willow Stream Spa, Fairmont Scottsdale will deliver a personal and sustainable wellness program to guests who wish to incorporate optimal health and lifestyle choices into both their vacations and everyday lives.
“The experience will be personalized to meet guests where they are within their wellness journey. Guests may take advantage of as much or as little of the menu of wellness tools and experiences as they choose,” said Jack Miller, general manager of the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. “Well & Being’s extensive staff of experts will provide a comprehensive, holistic approach to personal health. It won’t be a restrictive, cookie cutter wellness experience, but a personal experience that provides tools, resources and philosophy for our guests to take home into their daily lives,” he said.
A dynamic array of services will range from diagnostic health tests and specifically-targeted skincare treatments such as the HydraFacial, to acupuncture, massage, aromatherapy and traditional Eastern therapies. Additionally, Well & Being at Willow Stream Spa will offer cooking classes, guest lectures, and popular fitness programs, including multiple mind-body offerings, encompassing traditional and cutting-edge yoga, Pilates and movement classes.
Along with all of the new offerings, the spa menu of services is expanding with an even greater variety of massage, body and skincare treatments. Spa-goers can still simply enjoy a massage and a manicure or their favorite Willow Stream signature treatments such as the Ultimate Facial or the Pure Ener-G body treatment, as well as authentically-local treatments including the Havasupai Falls Rejuvenation and the Hacienda Retreat body polish. Under the direction of world-renowned expert in Integrative Medicine, Tieraona Low Dog, MD, Well & Being at Willow Stream Spa will have its own medical doctor and certified Integrative Medicine practitioner on staff.
While each guest will be guided to create their personalized profile with the easy touch of an iPad, featuring a socially-interactive tailored e-magazine filled with spa resources and personalized customer service, it is the new fitness facilities, dedicating several studio spaces to yoga, meditation, tai chi and breath work, that stand the spa going experience both literally (thanks to seven types of yoga classes) and figuratively on its head.
The facility will also offer a wide range of fitness equipment and programs such as TRX Suspension Training, CrossFit, Crank Cycle and immersive Rip Surfer Classes, in addition to state-of-the art exercise technology including Virtual Active forward-motion videos designed to diversify cardio workouts using Matrix fitness equipment. Top-tier personal trainers will also be available to guide guests through a tailored fitness routine.
Capturing the essence, elegance and energy of its surroundings— the stunning aquamarine beauty of the Havasupai Falls, a hidden oasis deep in the Grand Canyon—the 44,000 square-foot Willow Stream Spa’s design highlights a three-story therapeutic waterfall and Sedona sandstone, creating an environment as luxurious as the programs it offers.
