Spa Avania is located on-site at the Hyatt Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch, in Scottsdale, AZ.
While my husband supervised our three kids exhausting themselves at the amazing pools at the Hyatt Resort, I was lucky enough to slip away for a few hours at Spa Avania. I was greeted quickly and checked in efficiently, then led to the locker area and given a tour of the facility. When you book a service at the spa, you have full use of the facilities at the spa, which include a 9-head shower, steam room, sauna, mineral pool, hot and cold plunge pools, and quiet reading room with light snacks.
The overall ambiance of the spa is utter relaxation, calm, and peace (pretty much the opposite of the frenzy of activity I'd left at the pool)! I soaked, sipped citrus-infused water, and generally decompressed before being escorted to the massage room by my masseur, Denny. It was such a treat to choose my preferred scent and music prior to my deep-tissue massage and, I am not exeggerating when I say it was the BEST massage of my life! Seriously, the experience was pure bliss and I will definitely return!
If you wanted to use the spa and needed childcare, it would not be difficult to coordinate with Camp Hyatt to allow you the day to soak in the beauty of the space, or make a joint reservation with other adults.
*I received a complimentary spa service from Spa Avania during our stay at the Hyatt Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch. I received no other compensation and my reviews and opinions are expressly my own.
