[ 26 ] • DAYSPA • december 2016 CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: COURTESY GRACE HOTELS; JACQUELINE MORGAN; ISLAND SPA CATALINA room to relax " Our open-air relaxation deck overlooks Avalon Harbor, provides unparalleled sunset views and sea breezes, and is beautifully appointed with neutral-colored plush sofas and chaise longues. Catalina Island is only 26 miles from Southern California's coast, but being on this deck makes guests feel like they're a million miles away; it's the ideal place to sit peacefully, enjoy the tranquility and simply 'be.' " —Zach Thomas, spa director THE SPACE Relaxation Deck THE SPA Island Spa Catalina LOCATION Avalon, California WEBSITE island-spa-catalina STANDOUT FEATURES: Island harbor and Pacifi c Ocean views " Our lounge was designed and decorated in a turn-of-the- century style and we aimed to create a sense of intimate relaxation. Located on the east end of the spa building, the room becomes bathed in morning sunlight through fl oor-to- ceiling windows overlooking the pond and our Mayfl ower forest. Because the space's coloring is so simple, guests can easily be mesmerized by the different shades of green within the forest. A slew of details—art books, handcrafted glass decor pieces, unique fabrics and throws—combine with the neutral palette for an understated elegance. We feel that our relaxation room awakens a sense of awe, while welcoming guests with a soothing and calming embrace. " —Victoria Boscarino, director of spa and wellness THE SPACE Relaxation Room THE SPA Mayfl ower Grace Spa LOCATION Washington, Connecticut WEBSITE ower STANDOUT FEATURES: Floor-to-ceiling windows, white color palette " My spa occupies a house that was built in the 1700s. Much of the fl ooring and architectural features are original, and we take great pride in keeping this old house alive to ensure that it feels like home as soon as our guests walk in. Our county is bordered by the Chesapeake Bay, Patuxent River, Solomons and Broomes Islands, plus countless creeks. I wanted the spa to refl ect our artistic community, the beautiful waters and general peacefulness and beauty of this region. So, instead of your typical spa and salon decor, I decided that great art, good books, and the feeling of being home by the water would better suit our guests.
