No trip to The Boulders would be complete without visiting The Golden Door Spa. Uponentering one is greeted by a large wood burning fireplace that takes center stage in the circular main room. The gym and fitness area are located right of the main room and steam, sauna, and relaxation area to the left. Outdoor, a thirty meter, pool and Jacuzzi complete the fitness area. Koi ponds and gentle babbling brooks weave through the landscaped rock beds.

 

A retreat from the chaotic world of stress and demands, the Steam room, a favorite of mine anywhere, was so relaxing with high heat steam penetrating into the deep muscles, it was so very warm, calming and truly soothed and erased the morning travel tension. So to allow guests additional enjoyment, The Golden Door Spa provides ice cloths, to cool pressure points, at the Stream Room entrance.
