Lantana Spa at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort

Relaxation.  We all need it!  It’s just easier to indulge in some places than others.  Have you heard of Lantana Spa?  If you haven’t, you are truly missing out.

Relax and Rejuvenate at Lantana Spa at JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort

A few weeks ago, I was invited to a special place in San Antonio that really opened my eyes to a new way to indulge.  The Lantana Spa at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is the ultimate place to unwind, relax, pamper yourself, and just enjoy the moment.

Lantana Spa is the largest spa in Texas at 26,000 square feet.  It is multi-leveled with a fitness center, exercise facility, a private pool, 30 treatment rooms, 3 couples suites, a nail salon, boutique, and even the Replenish Spa Bistro.  Enjoy organic food, prepared with herbs grown on-site, and even unwind with a glass of wine.

You can enjoy a massages and facials.  Indulge in body treatments such as the Texas Sarsaparilla & Coffee Bean treatment or the Organic Ginger Renewal Body Treatment.  Get your nails done and even add a clay masque leg lift to your Texas Wildflower Signature Pedicure.  There are even treatments and packages meant to be enjoyed by two.  What a fun treat for yourself and someone special.

The Ritual of Los Siete Nudos at JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort Lantana Spa

The Ritual of Los Siete Nudos at Lantana Spa

Lantana Spa draws upon the rich history of the San Antonio area to create treatments and products that embrace the healing rituals and culture from the Texas Hill Country.  In fact, upon entering, you participate in The Ritual of Los Siete Nudos.  With this, you are given a piece of red ribbon for the “Seven Knots Ritual”.

You tie seven knots in the ribbon, one for each worry, with the last knot used to create a complete circle.  At the end of the spa journey, you leave your worries behind so that you can start fresh!  I loved this charming tradition, and it felt freeing to concentrate a worry on each knot and simply discard it all and walk away.

Spa guests can also escape to the quiet, cabana-style pool, pick the perfect indulgence in the spa boutique, or visit the nail salon featuring vegan products.

There are plenty of spa packages available, or you can pick and choose your favorite treatments.  Of course, you could also just escape and hang out at Lantana Spa on your own, with your significant other, or with your best friend and just enjoy the amenities.

  • Also, July 3-6 the spa will have Red, White and Massage for Two – 10% off 50 and 80 minute couples massages (Call to reserve!)

I want to head over there now to enjoy the private pool and the aromatherapy inhalation room.  It’s been a while since I’ve gone into a sauna – I might want to do that, too.  Honestly, a few hours away from the family seems like a fun way to recharge and refresh.
