My partner & I are looking for a full service spa that welcomes gay couples. Perhaps along the lines of a Canyon Ranch style spa. Is there such a thing?
My top pick would be East Canyon Hotel and Spa, a lovely 5-Palm property in Palm Springs. Think Four Seasons comforts and amenities, but with even more attentive service, and in an all-gay environment. Management and staff are attentive (but unobtrusive), professional and friendly, and the grounds and rooms are luxurious (for example, Frette towels and bed linens) and elegant. Rooms feature TV/VCR and CD player/radios. The Grand Suite consists of a living room, separate bedroom and its own Jacuzzi tub. East Canyon offers ultra-clean spa facilities and a full range of enticing body treatments, massages and facials all administered by a highly professional team of trained aestheticians. Wine, champagne and hors d'oeuvres are offered on weekends and holidays.
