Wood. Stone. Water. Relaxation.
That is what you will find at The Spa at Salishan Resort.
Let me kick this off by saying The Spa at Salishan was so fabulous I believed it deserved its own review and micro-post filled with photos demonstrating the natural beauty of this little gem nestled in Siletz Bay just south of Lincoln City. Although I wouldn’t consider myself an avid spa-goer or someone who schedules massages on any sort of regular basis; my semi-charmed life and day job has fortunately given me access to five-star rated spas and treatments across the country. I feel comfortable making the claim that although The Spa at Salishan is not formally rated or ranked, it deserves a five-star rating on the Oregon coast and I would feel comfortable hosting clients here knowing we would be in great hands.
Walking into the spa, the outside had a similar appearance to the resort across the street but as we stepped through the door, I immediately noticed a different level of service. The spa hosts were warm and welcoming and checked us in with ease. The whole process took under five minutes; we were immediately shown into the spa, toured the facilities and slipped into our designated robes and slippers.
The Spa at Salishan Facilities
I have a fascination with biometric architecture and design that integrates and/or interacts with nature. This is why I am so obsessed with the structure developments in Valle Guadalupe wine country and why I was so impressed with The Spa at Salishan. Floor to ceiling windows offering expansive views of the Siletz Bay line the treatment waiting room. A co-ed outdoor infinity whirlpool sits in the open-air looking out to shore pines and the bay. There is also an indoor clothing optional female designated whirlpool with the same view near the women’s locker room. Research has proven the link between stress reduction and nature and I was impressed with how the design of the spa focused on the natural elements of the environment with very simple furnishings. Architects and designers directly control our built environment and I appreciate when there is a clear intention for a structure to connect with nature rather than disconnect.
The Spa at Salishan Treatments
The spa treatment menu was not imaginative but I appreciated the simplicity of the menu and it aligned well with the nature-connected facilities. They offer body wraps, facials, massages and hand and foot therapies, all with optional enhancements. I had a massage scheduled and my therapist greeted me with a well-balanced professional and laid-back demeanor. Starting in the treatment waiting room, I relaxed by the fire and wished for 20 more minutes before my appointment. I joined my mom in the open-air infinity whirlpool for another hour of deep relaxation after my massage. I left feeling ‘blissed’ out and very connected with my surroundings and myself.
