Gaylord Hotels offers five luxury spas around the US, each with exclusive products for purchase to keep the bliss flowing for weeks or months afterward.
The act of escaping life’s stresses is the foundation of a healthy self-care routine, giving ourselves permission to power down, ignite the senses and soothe the soul. Luckily, for those who need the influence of beautiful surroundings to help us unwind, Relâche Spa awaits, tucked quietly into a quintet of Gaylord Hotels in Colorado, Florida, Tennessee, Texas, and the greater DC area.
Offering an exclusive series of treatments and therapies based on tried-and-true modalities, the Relâche Spa experience is uniquely calming and revitalizing in equal measure. Its product line is abundant with epicurean delights, infused with botanicals direct from the garden, and made with care, from sea salt scrubs, shower gels, and lotions to an exclusive hair care series.
For the full experience, an abundance of treatments are on hand to restore world-weary travelers in the Relâche family of spas, each located inside a Gaylord Hotels property. At Gaylord Rockies just outside Denver, a 14,000 square-foot European-style day spa offers world-class pampering, elevated by features like a Rocky Mountain rain shower, crystalline ice fountain, Alpenglow fireside lounge, and aromatherapy steam room.
The luxurious Gaylord Palms in central Florida is one of only two spas in the Orlando area earning four-star ratings from Forbes Travel, complete with rainforest showers, dozens of perfectly-appointed treatment rooms, and a South Beach-inspired pool.
Deep in the heart of Tennessee, Gaylord Opryland guests can celebrate an evening at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville with indulgent services at an award-winning spa haven, while treatments at Gaylord Texan are as generous as the Lone Star State’s trademark sense of hospitality. Just outside Washington, DC, Gaylord National relaxes and revitalizes spa-goers with its cool, calming environment and an Express Bar for services lasting 25 minutes or less — perfect for busy guests in need of a quick recharge.
All five Relâche Spas share a common purpose: to impart an experience much like the word relâche itself, which means to “let go” or “take a breather” in French. Each location offers body treatments, facials, salon services, and restorative moments in elegant surroundings.
The trademark scent of Gaylord Hotels and Relâche Spas is Green Tea and Lemongrass, a blend of soothing yet invigorating elements known for their skin-toning, hair-enhancing, and mood-lifting qualities. The fresh herbal fragrance imparts a sense of peace while gentle ingredients cleanse, soften, tone, and condition everything they touch. Infused with vitamin E, the series is perfectly sampled through a travel set or a collection of 8-ounce bath and body products. These take-home collections allow spa enthusiasts to incorporate the rituals of the Relâche Spa experience into everyday life, whether at home, on the go, or both.
Sea salt scrubs are another core component of many Relâche body treatments, and for those who want to hang onto the invigorating sensation and silky softness it leaves behind, a quartet of salt scrubs are available for purchase, each with its own unique blend of botanicals: Cucumber Melon, Moroccan Mint, Ocean Breeze, and Honey Coconut Mango. Each blend features sea salt, botanical extracts, vitamin E, and jojoba oil — a renowned carrier oil closer than any other on the market to the molecular makeup of oils made naturally by the skin.
No spa visit is complete without a cup of infused water or warm tea to conclude the day, and tea lovers are delighted to learn that Relâche Spa teas may be enjoyed at any time. A variety of teas and tisanes are available for purchase, from the soothing flavors of Cranberry Hibiscus, White Ambrosia, and Ginger Peach to enlivening blends like Pomegranate Oolong, Organic Masala Chai, and Green Passion Tea. Whether served in a Relâche lounge or sipped amid the comforts of home, these elixirs have the power to transport the mind to a calmer, happier place. When enjoyed in a cozy spa robe, the experience is heightened even more.
