The Spa at Granlibakken offers three relaxing treatment rooms, including an area for multiple treatments and parties, a cozy waiting area and an outdoor deck.
Sledding and a full body massage – words rarely heard in one breath. This dreamy combination of excitement and relaxation is yours for the taking at Granlibakken Resort—where quiet bliss can be found just few steps away from a sledding hill.
As our boys and I got in our last sled runs of the day, my wife snuck away for a Deep Tissue Massage with the owner of the spa. She also runs a spa in Tahoe City’s business district so appointments at the Lighthouse Spa are mandatory.
I was envious of my wife’s pampering. A massage is the perfect antidote for fatigued muscles after a long day of tumbling down snowy hills. When my wife emerged from her massage it was obvious she had been well taken care of. She said the owner possessed strong hands and paid close attention to her individual needs. A 60-minute massage costs $90 at the Lighthouse Spa.
Apart from Massage Therapy the spa also offers Skin Care, Body Therapy & Healing Treatments, and Ayurveda Health & Wellness services. Business hours are 10-7 daily, by appointment only. The spa accepts Visa and MasterCard credit cards for reservations and payments.
The Lighthouse Spa provided my wife with a complimentary massage for this review. They did not request that I express any particular point of view and my reviews always reflect my honest opinions.
I had the luxury of indulging in a massage during my family’s weekend stay at Granlibakken Resort and Conference Center. Scheduling a massage was a spur of the moment decision and much to my surprise; I was able to secure a same day appointment. Since I'm a busy mother, that's a convenience I appreciate.
Lighthouse Spa is quiet and peaceful (unlike my two children.) Upon check in, my massage therapist greeted me and offered me a refreshment. Her friendly eyes helped me feel at ease while we discussed customizing my massage. She earnestly wanted to focus on me as an individual rather than just give me an average massage.
I opted for deep tissue kneading and was soon in rubdown bliss. I enjoyed every superb minute of my one hour full body massage. Her technique was first-rate and the pressure was exactly as I had requested. Traveling with two children is stressful and the massage left me feeling better than I have felt in weeks. I really enjoyed the whole experience and would like to revisit again.
Lighthouse Spa boasts three treatment rooms and a number of wellness packages aimed at revitalization and relaxation, including therapeutic massage, skin care, spa manicure-pedicures, hot stone therapy, pre-natal, reiki healing and couples massages.
