Vail, Colorado — Aria Spa, located at the Vail Cascade Resort, has been deemed one of the very best spas in Colorado in the January edition of Denver Magazine. The magazine has chosen twenty-five Colorado spas identified as offering exceptional overall spa experiences, reporting that the award list includes “the most luxurious spas in the state”. Named by Denver Magazine as one of the “25 Best Spas in Colorado” Aria Spa was noted for the utilization of the “restful colors of nature-forest green, soft browns, and auburns”. Vail Cascade Resort’s Aria Spa was also praised in the award description for signature treatments such as the Blue Detox Wrap which uses clays, seaweed and plant extracts, and for the Ling Non-Surgical Facelift. Guests can relax in the Sanctuary room in the heart of the spa on chaise lounges surrounding a soothing fireplace or in the men’s or women’s locker room with whirlpool, steamrooms and sauna time. Refreshing cool water infused with cucumber and lemon is offered with a selection of hot teas, and spa-goers can order healthy-or decadent-morsels from a full spa menu. The spa has fourteen treatment rooms and spaces for manicures and pedicures, allowing groups to make multiple reservations at one time. As part of a recent $30 million dollar renovation of the Vail Cascade Resort, Aria Spa is considered to be a “10,000 square-foot oasis” aside from the popular fitness club that flanks it, according to April Bingham, spa director. Reservations and information about Aria Spa can be found at or by calling 1-888-824-5772. The spa is open seven days per week from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.
