Let’s face it. Sometimes you just need a day (or sometimes just a couple of hours) to relax, unwind and pamper yourself. So many of us here in Boulder lead a go, go, go lifestyle that we forget to take a little of that oh-so important “me time,” but finding a good massage therapist, aesthetician or spa can add another knot in your already tense back. Relax; we’ve done the leg work for you! For those of you looking for a little luxurious spa time, here’s a list of some of the best Boulder spas.
Spa at St. Julien
The hotel itself is known for its luxury in downtown Boulder and the spa at St. Julien reflects that as well. While the fitness center and pool are reserved for guests of the hotel, you can make an appointment for one of their many rejuvenating spa treatments. They even feature indigenous plants in their treatments created from local plants, seeds and stones, as well as herbs from the on-site herb garden. It’s really the spa of all Boulder spas if you’re looking for the royal treatment.
If you’re looking for a place that offers a bunch of great services all around, then j lounge is a great place to make an appointment. They offer manicures and pedicures, as well as massage and facials. The space is bright and inviting and makes guests feel comfortable immediately. As an added bonus, they have spa service for men as well as women.
