My wife and I had a couples deep therapy massage. The two therapists were very good and the spa itself is nicely decorated and furnished.

This is the one thing that Tenaya lodge has right. The massage therapists knew what they were doing! The spa was quiet, relaxing and tranquil. Excellent locker room, steam room and sauna in the spa.

The amenities were spectacular. My only point is that the staff, frankly, were too loud. Yes, loud. After a massage and relaxing time the staff killed the mood by being unnecessarily loud at check out.

Treat yourself to a great relaxing experience by consummate professionals. You are worth it. Relaxing massage or deep tissue were both incredible and the staff really know their profession.

I had the relaxation massage package for 90 minutes. It was wonderful. Don, the massage therapist, was awesome and had skillfull techniques to get the stress out of muscles. The package I had gave champagne and voucher for the Jackalope Bar and Grill, so those are also bonus points.

Theresa gave me a great facial! They did a great job renovating the spa - it's really beautiful and much more modern than the hotel.
