Alderbrook Resort and Spa

Alderbrook Resort & Spa

Alderbrook Resort and Spa has long held a reputation for being the nicest spa on the Olympic Peninsula, which is across Puget Sound west of Seattle. Guests coming from Seattle can either catch a ferry or drive around the Sound. Located on the picturesque shores of Hood Canal, a glacier-carved fjord more than 60 miles (97 kilometers) long, the place is absolutely dwarfed by huge alder trees. Signature massages always include aromatherapy, with many scents of local woodland fauna used. The whole spa menu celebrates the outdoors, from a volcanic pumice scrub to a body wrap of seaweed. At the end of a long spa day, guests can relax poolside—the resort has a glass greenhouse-enclosed swimming pool with views of the rocky beach and, on clear days, the Olympic Mountains. 

Olympus Spa

Olympus Spa

At first glance, the Olympus Spa in Lynnwood (just outside of Seattle) is not what most expect. Located in a nondescript suburban strip mall, the spa's own exterior is definitely nothing to get excited about. But once inside it is a buzzing women’s-only Korean-style retreat. Rules for guests are strict and non-negotiable; robes must be worn in the warm infrared rooms lined with Himalayan salt or jade, but all clothes and undergarments must be removed to enter the pool area. A cap and gown is given to wear in other areas. Ladies ca get a massage, receive a traditional Korean scrub, or choose from a long list of other services. Treatments here incorporate mung beans, red ginseng, and yam—items not typically found in a U.S. spa. After a relaxing day, guests can continue caring for their bodies with a healthy meal. Served on the premises are specialties from the East Asian country such as the rice dish bibimbap, spicy tacos, and green tea smoothies.

Salish Lodge and Spa

Salish Lodge and Spa

Only 30 minutes from Seattle, The Salish Lodge and Spa is known as the region's top luxury resort and has won numerous awards and honors, including Condé Nast Traveler's "Top 50 Hotel Spas in the United States" as well as Reader's Choice Awards in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021. It sits perched above the stunning Snoqualmie Falls at the base of the Cascade Mountains and is famous for being in the David Lynch television series "Twin Peaks." The Asian-inspired spa goes for the feel of a Japanese bathhouse, with hydrotherapy pools set into natural rock. Treatments include a honey (sourced from bee-boxes onsite) as well as ingredients from a wide array of natural settings including the arctic. Couples can indulge in a fireside couple’s massage. The resort maintains an 18-and up age restriction for massages and soaking. Those 16 and up can receive facial treatments.

Salt Room and Spa

Salt Room and Spa

Salt therapy—also called halotherapy—is known for being not only relaxing but physically beneficial for those with asthma and allergies. The popular treatment is available in Bellevue, Washington. Guests can lounge in 45-minute sessions against the walls of illuminated Himalayan pink salt brick-chambered rooms. Also offered are massages (solo or couples), Reiki sessions, yoga and meditation, color therapy, music therapy, and zero-gravity recliners. 

Glade Spring Spa

Glade Spring Spa 

For those looking for an idyllic nature retreat in the mountains east of the Cascades, the Glade Spring Spa relaxation rooms at Suncadia resort in Cle Elum open up to mineral bath pools, wood-cabin saunas, fire pits, and a freshwater stream. While it is a luxury resort that even includes a golf course, non-resort guests can still make appointments at the spa. Visitors enjoy a Vichy shower room, various outdoor mineral baths, indulgent scalp treatments, and many therapies come with a complimentary glass of wine. Glade Spring Spa offers wraps, scrubs, massages, detox therapies, specialized foot treatments—you name it, and the business probably already thought of it. 

Semiahmoo Resort

On the northern Puget Sound shoreline a few hours north of Seattle in Blaine, Semiahmoo is known for having one of Washington's top golf courses: Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club. But many come just for the spa, which uses luxurious Éminence skincare products. The spa offers a wide variety of body treatments including softening sundae wrap, vital body scrub, butter rum sugar scrub, honey lavender salt scrub, and honey hands and feet revitalizer. Another notable option is the heated Himalayan salt stone message.

The Woodmark Hotel

Woodmark Hotel and Spa
Destination Hotels

The Woodmark Hotel and Still Spa has a very yacht club feel. It’s set on the shore of Lake Washington, just 15 minutes east of Seattle. With a location in the Carillon Point waterfront community, the hotel also has views of the Seattle skyline and the Olympic Mountains. One package is the Warm & Wellness option which includes a 75-minute stone crop massage, 60-minute organic custom facial, and signature manicure and pedicure. The Ultimate Spa Day includes 60-minute still signature massage, Himalayan salt body treatment, intense refresh facial, and signature manicure and pedicure.

Willows Lodge

Benchmark

In Woodinville’s wine country just 30 minutes from Seattle, Willows Lodge on the Sammamish River is within easy walking distance of Chateau Ste. Michelle and Columbia Winery. The spa offers massages, body wraps, and a menu of face treatments that includes oxygen, micro-needling, and red carpet facials. Couples massages are also offered.

Rosario Resort and Spa

Rosario Resort and Spa

Rosario Resort and Spa

Location, location, location—to get to the Rosario Resort and Spa, guests must arrive by car ferry, regular boat, or some type of plane to the gorgeous San Juan Islands a few hours north of Seattle. On the property is a 1909 mansion that used to be the home of shipbuilding magnate Robert Moran but has since turned into an indulgent getaway for city folk. After getting blood pumping in a class at the fitness studio, visitors can relax in the whirlpool tub or the indoor, adults-only therapeutic pool before getting a massage or other spa therapy. While the treatments lean towards the traditional (think body scrub or facial), the stunningly tranquil location more than makes up for a smaller spa menu.
