When I started covering spas many years ago, it cost about $6750 to go to Golden Door for a full week. Now it's around $8,000, but you can turn back the clock on prices for one week only -- March 18-25, 2012. Experience the legendary destination spa known for its unparalled level of service, including daily in-room massage, six skin care sessions, manicure, pedicure, and shampoo and blow-out (18 treatments altogether). You get three private sessions with a personal trainer plus a customized take-home program. Gourmet spa cuisine is prepared from an organic garden, just steps from the kitchen. A complete spa wardrobe, including work-out clothes and a Japanese Yukata (cotton robe), are in your room on arrival.
Over 40 fitness activities include guided hikes, yoga, Pilates, dance, tennis, T'ai Chi and archery by Golden Door's highly trained instructors. Practice meditation, walk the Labyrinth or attend other special inner-focus classes and evening presentations.
You can also try the new Golden Door Running Clinic, which provides tools for beginners, recreational runners, or athletes training for an event. Have your running form assessed and learn new techniques to transform your approach so you can run "lighter" and prevent injury. Why should golfers be the only ones to have clinics?
