The Spa at Camelback Inn

Day 3 on our exhausting mission to live the life of leisure as "Spa Girls." We headed to The Spa at Camelback in for facials. We arrived about lunch time and checked in, then went to Sprouts Restaurant for a healthy lunch. If you want to see a picture of the view from the restaurant.

This spa had a different atmosphere than the other two. Southwest,
yes, bit with an "urban" feel to it. We spent about two hours lounging in the hot tub and outside under the palm trees. About 1/2 hour before our facials, we moved into the lounge area. It was a quiet place with about ten lounge chairs. We settled into two chaises and took a brief nap. When our names were called, we were escorted to our treatment rooms for another wonderful experience.

I ordered the Camelback Signature Facial. The online brochure describes it as: Blends of grapefruit, mandarin orange, cranberry and pomegranate make this facial the ultimate in aromatherapy. Accompanying the therapeutic aromas of pure plant extracts is a detoxifying pumpkin enzyme treatment followed by a specialized mask customized to your skin type. Your relaxation is further enhanced by a gentle hot stone hand and foot massage.

It was wonderful!

My sister ordered the Sonoran Rose. She described it as incredible. The brochure describes it as: Our two most popular facials are now blended to form a fabulous treatment. This patented skincare line has stabilized oxygen in creams containing Vitamins A and E as excellent free-radical scavengers. A deep pore cleansing and the rich aromatic essence of the rose relaxes, soothes and softens skin. During this facial, an application of Glycolic Acid removes surface build-up of dry skin on the face, hands and arms leaving the texture of the skin fresh and radiant.

Great day, again, and we were exhausted. We made it home and then arranged with Kalen to have dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant. I didn't add the photos on this day but check the July 4 posting for the restaurant.

We elected to have facials here, and it was the best I've had. I really enjoyed it and the added foot/leg/arm massage with hot rocks. Wonderful time and great wet areas to linger and enjoy.
