An enlightening spa experience, Spa Avania choreographs your visit to light, music and the body’s internal clock.

Could it be true? Yet another spa in the already rich resort spa landscape of Scottsdale? Oh yeah baby. But this one is not just another spa. Sprawling amidst 2.7 acres of indoor and outdoor treatment rooms, gardens, pools and meditation spaces, the new Spa Avania is among the world’s first to choreograph the entire sensual experience to the science of time and the body’s internal daily clock. Aptly named for the Greek word for “tranquil,” the $9 million oasis at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch opened its doors in 2005, wowing guests with both its luxe interior and thoughtful approach to the spa encounter.

Designed to provide a whole body, total immersion in tune with the body’s changing daily rhythms and requirements, Spa Avania integrates seven essential elements — customized spa treatments, mineral water therapy, music styling, fitness, diet, rare teas and natural light — into the experience. For each guest, the spa concierge weaves these essential ingredients into an all-senses journey that answers to the body’s needs throughout the day: invigorating, energizing treatments for the morning; balancing and rejuvenation for mid-day; and calming evening treatments that prepare the body for slumber and repair.

Guests to this 21,000-square-foot retreat are transported from the outside world into a space where art, light and contemporary design work in unison to provide subtle reminders of the spa-wide emphasis on balance and time. Arranged around a dramatic trellis-covered outdoor court — featuring mesquite wood-burning fireplaces, gorgeous pools, a lotus pond, a black granite waterfall and scenic glimpses of Camelback Mountain — are four oversized treatment rooms for couples and five elegant indoor and outdoor garden treatment suites with private entrances, pools, fountains and private relaxation lounges.

On the Spa Avania menu is expert massage therapy, heavenly facial treatments, Vichy water immersion treatments and hair and nail services. The spa also features a state-of-the-art fitness center, movement studio, 16,290-gallon French Celtic mineral pool, personalized facility-wide music styling system and elaborate indoor and outdoor spaces for personal relaxation and reflection.

Services: facials, massage, body treatments, airbrush spray tanning, body wraps, hair conditioning and scalp treatments, hair updos and styling, manicures, pedicures, Vichy body scrub treatments

Bons vivants will raise their glasses to a hearty choice of dining options including the crowning Alto ristorante e bar, a journey into the heart of fresh and flavorful Italian fare.

My daughters, friends, everyone has commented on the way my skin looks. Such a delightful experience. Thank you, Kelly, KEZY and Avania. Linda
