We all deserve some down time and self-health is so important. This tends to be overlooked by most of us… until we go on vacation or even a staycation. When visiting the Heber Valley, we bring whole body health and wellness to the forefront for our guests. Known as an outdoor recreation mecca, visitors quickly discover how easy it is to indulge and make wellness a priority during their stay.
With spas speckled throughout the Heber Valley, visitors and locals alike can easily satisfy their need for some pampering. Offering everything from decadent spas at luxury properties (open to both lodging guests and outside guests) to full day spas to hair and nail salons – when looking for specialized treatments or body work, you will find what you need in this mountain town. Skilled therapists have spent decades in their field of expertise and provide a refined and attentive treatment to their guests.
Whether biking or skiing, hiking or sledding, or just tired from your travels, our therapists and ready and waiting to help relieve your sore muscles and fatigued bodies. We suggest the Renewal Package at The Spa at Zermatt Resort for a full day spa visit or a Custom Facial with Paraffin Hand Dip at A Good Day Spa if you have a couple of hours during your stay. Or perhaps some Infrared Sauna therapy or even Halotherapy Salt Booth therapy at Blue Sun Tanning & Spa. If a Couple’s Treatment is more what you have in mind, look no further than the La Remède Spa at St. Regis Deer Valley with its refined amenities and luxury treatments.
Most lodging properties provide a well-outfitted gym on site, and we are the ultimate outdoor adventure destination. But for those guests looking for something a little more than the standard weights and cardio equipment or wanting to fit in a workout other than the outdoor rec type, we have some excellent options right here in town.
The Studio Elevated Fitness offers studio spin classes, strength training classes, yoga, including hot yoga classes, barre classes (cardio, heated yoga, and sports), and step aerobics classes. Every class finishes with a signature lavender or eucalyptus towel during your cool down. Private training and instruction is also available during your stay. Ask your lodging property for recommendations on local private instructors who can meet you at the property or in town for a fully custom and private workout experience. And, don’t forget to contact local outfitters who can do private guided excursions that will be sure to get your heartrate up and give you a whole body workout as well!
RETREATS & ADD ONS
Several local wellness experts lead single-day to multiple-day health and wellness retreats each year right here in the Heber Valley. Most of these retreats happen during the spring, summer, and fall months as this allows guests to be outdoors more to connect with nature and find their much-needed solace and quiet. Watch our events calendar to learn more about these annual retreats.
If a full retreat isn’t what you’re looking for, or if that doesn’t fit your trip itinerary, then consider adding one of these experiences to your stay.
- The Crater at Homestead Resort: This 10,000-year-old geothermal hot spring has restorative minerals in the 95-degree water. Sit and soak below the limestone beehive dome in the humid atmosphere and revive muscles from a day on the trails. Or, if you’re feeling up for it, book the standup paddleboard morning yoga experience. This instructor-led yoga class takes place atop the warm water and invigorates the mind and body for a beautiful day in the valley.
- Snowshoe & Candlelit Yoga at the Chalet: That’s right. Book a private snowshoe trek up to an intimate chalet at Wasatch Mountain State Park where you will find a warm and welcoming candlelit yoga studio all set amid the surrounding forested area.
- Goga at Zermatt Utah Resort & Spa: Goats meet yoga! These cute and furry creatures add an element of fun and surprise to an outdoor yoga class at the foothills of the Wasatch Mountain range. Zermatt Resort hosts the goats all summer season and holds regular goga (goat yoga) classes on site. If traveling to Heber Valley during the summer months, book your stay at Zermatt Resort and add this entertaining yoga experience to your stay.
CUSTOMIZE IT TO YOUR NEEDS
Fully customizable treatments, as well as private training sessions, are always an option. Book a therapist to come to you and make the treatment fully customized. Many therapists offer body work in the privacy of your accommodations and several local fitness experts can meet with you at your preferred location – whether that be at your lodging property or outdoors in the valley. If you prefer to have more one-on-one time and be in a private environment, this fully customized option may be the best fit for you. Contact your lodging property for recommendations of body treatment therapists, personal trainers, or experienced guides to make your stay even better.
