Treasuring the essence of Arizona, Agave, The Arizona Spa offers ancient healing treatments for mind, body and spirit renewal.
What does life, longevity and tequila have in common? Agave. And it’s Agave, The Arizona Spa, a 15,000-square-foot retreat on the grounds of the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, that takes its namesake seriously. A tranquil fusion of soft textures, desert hues and native artwork, the spa’s decor is balanced by the healing and life-giving symbol of Arizona’s indigenous agave plant. The spa has integrated the plant into its techniques, products and unique touches of its treatment offerings.
Guests will enter through a courtyard flanked by citrus trees and overlooking the expansive water recreation area. The spa’s lobby, decorated in light woods and soft tones inspired by the colors of Sedona and the Grand Canyon is open, inviting and promises you won’t get lost in the maze-like layout found at many resort spas. In one look from the reception desk, you’ll spot the movement studio, juice bar, full-service salon, and cardio and free weight room. Central to the entrance is a spa boutique where you’ll find a tempting selection of skincare products, clothing, music and unique gifts.
Before your treatment, you’ll be escorted to the private luxury of the men’s or women’s locker area, each housing keyless entry lockers, spacious showers, steam and sauna rooms and fully stocked vanity areas. At the heart of the changing areas, you’ll find a whirlpool brightly lit by a dome-shaped skylight with a spectacular ceiling-to-floor mosaic tile photograph of a bubbling stream as its backdrop. Grab a refreshing agave limeade or fruit-infused iced water as you await your treatment in the softly lit relaxation room. Treatment rooms, each named after an aspect of the tequila distilling process, are warmly decorated with elegant handmade throws and locally made earthenware.
Agave, The Arizona Spa, is a truly relaxing retreat that celebrates the history and landscape of Arizona. Local residents are invited to experience the spa with full use of the facilities for the day of their treatment. And if you’re lucky enough to be a guest of the exquisitely designed and amenity-rich Westin Kierland Resort, you’ll be privy to outstanding on-site golf, dining, recreation and luxurious accommodations. With the 38-acre wonderland of up-scale shops and dining venues of Kierland Commons just across the street, Agave Spa couldn’t have been any more perfectly located.
