The Spa at the Grove Park Inn
The husband did a good job with the birthday present this year. He surprised me with a staycation at the Grove Park Inn, one of my favorite places in Asheville! First we checked into our mountain view room, and then we spent hours swimming in the pools, lounging in the hot tubs, and relaxing in the sauna at the spa.
Tyler and I go the Grove Park Inn Spa about once a year for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. It is the best spa I have ever been to, and they have us hooked. If you want to treat someone to an incredible birthday/anniversary/etc, this is THE spot.
A few things to know about the Spa at the Grove Park Inn:
“Day Passes” are available for overnight guests Mon-Thurs only and are $90 (they used to be available for locals but not anymore #sad); however, hotel guests have to get there when they open to snag one (they are limited and sell out quickly)
Resort guests can buy a “treatment” aka massage/facial/pedi ect, and this guarantees you access to the spa all day as well. Treatments range from $120 to $540
Non-resort guests can buy a treatment Monday-Thursday and this guarantees you access to the spa all day. Call well in advance to secure the treatment you want!
Treatments are more expensive on the weekend
There is a women’s area, men’s area, and middle area for all genders
The spa has a café open from 7:30am-6:00pm. Waiters also serve at the large outdoor hot tub starting at 11am
The spa also has a gym if you want to get a workout in :)
We ate breakfast at the Spa Café and then went out of the spa to the Great Hall Bar in the main lobby for lunch. We had planned to go to one of the fancier restaurants for dinner but were so relaxed after the spa that we just ordered room service!
Hours: 8:00am-9:00pm, daily
