hose fortunate enough to spend a week at the original Golden Door(R), a legendary destination spa in Escondido, Calif. come away restored, balanced and refreshed - and many would say enlightened with a fresh outlook on life. This “spirit of life” has been brought to all three resort branches of the Golden Door through an individualized four-night package that is inspired by the original`s renowned program and philosophy. The Spirit of Life package gives spa-goers at The Boulders-A Wyndham Luxury Resort in Carefree, Ariz., the Wyndham Peaks Resort in Telluride, Colo. and Las Casitas Village-A Wyndham Luxury Resort in Las Croabas, Puerto Rico, the opportunity to become fully immersed in the spa experience - from treatments to fitness, personal instruction, meditation and cuisine.
One element that is particularly impactful is the signature Potassium Broth Break. Inspired by the ritual at the original Golden Door, a gong is sounded every morning at 10:50 a.m. at each of the spas, after which a vegetable-based Potassium Broth is served to guests. It is timed to when the human body is most receptive to potassium`s health benefits, which include aiding in the absorption of other nutrients and increasing blood flow.
“We introduced the Spirit of Life package at the Golden Door Spa at The Boulders in 2002 and received wonderful feedback from guests who embraced the intensive destination Golden Door experience available through the program,” explained Lorraine Park, director at the Golden Door Spa at The Boulders. “By popular demand, we have expanded the offering to Puerto Rico and Telluride. Now our spa guests can choose between the desert, mountain or beach for their Spirit of Life program.”
