CARMEL, CA—To help guests relax and unwind after taking part in the property’s other activities, Quail Lodge & Golf Club recently opened a new wellness center.
“Quail Lodge prides itself in being a destination where any guest, no matter their interests or purpose for a trip, has an array of activities to suit their desires,” said Craig Barkdull, director of sales and marketing. “We found that guests who spent a few hours of the day on our award-winning golf course, or out hiking, biking or kayaking the stunning landscapes of the Monterey Peninsula were looking to add a soothing post-activity massage to rejuvenate at the end of the day.”
The Wellness Center is also for those who just want to relax and get away from their daily grind. “Alternatively, many of our guests seek to escape their urban, everyday lives and visit Quail Lodge simply to disconnect from city life and reconnect with themselves,” said Barkdull. “What would a de-stressing getaway be without some pampering? Therefore, we identified an enhanced Wellness Center was an added benefit to all our guests.”
To provide this relaxation, the boutique 1,400-sq.-ft. center offers three treatment rooms. “The Quail Lodge Wellness Center offers 50- and 80-minute Swedish, Aromatherapy or Deep Tissue Massages for individuals and couples alike,” he said. “Aromatherapy massages feature one of our three signature essential oil blends to choose from. All massage services are available in the natural serenity of one of our private wellness center rooms, or in the comfort of your guestroom. Additionally, guests can relax and release toxins from their body during a visit to our steam room, which is complimentary to anyone staying at the hotel. We are not a full spa with full spa offerings, but we offer the services that our guests are looking for.”
The new treatments complement the resort’s other well-being offerings, which include a year-round heated outdoor swimming pool and dedicated fitness cabanas featuring exercise equipment. The fitness cabanas feature three secluded studios dedicated to cardio, weightlifting, and yoga and stretching with equipment including treadmills, stationary bikes, ellipticals, an array of free weights, workout benches and machines, floor and yoga mats, abdominal balls, and more.
