A friend and I wanted to take a midweek day off from skiing and go for a massage or facial. Prices for everything in Vail seem to have increased by 30-50% so we were surprised when our usual spa now wanted $175 for a massage. We did some research and found the Manor Vail Spa, a newer hotel and resort. They offered a reasonable package with both massage and facial for $230 so we decided to get both.
When we arrived at the hotel lobby we snacked on amazing breakfast bread pudding prior to our treatments. Once we checked in, after the usual pages of paperwork, we were given robes and slippers and shown to a locker room which was a little small but adequate for us, since it was fairly quiet at the time we arrived.
We then went into a pleasant and peaceful waiting room while we waited for our therapists. My massage was exactly what I needed, medium - firm sports massage for my tired and aching ski muscles. My therapist checked in with me frequently ensuring that he was using the right amount of pressure for my preference. He was a skier and also knew where my trouble spots would be. After the massage I went for my facial which was outstanding! Cordy, the esthetician, put me onto a nicely warmed table, diagnosed my skin care needs and delivered the perfect facial for me. I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep and when I was finished, my skin felt 20 years younger!
After the treatments, we thought we might briefly use the sauna, steam room and outdoor hot tubs, however we were a little disappointed that since we had morning treatments the rooms were not pre-warmed so we would have had to wait at least 15 minutes for the rooms to be heated, so we decided to skip the rest of the spa and leave. I would suggest if you think you want to use the sauna and steam room, tell them when you check in so they are sure the rooms are heated and ready to go.
All in all fantastic and top notch professional treatments, nice environment and ambience and good value.
