Say “Pamper Me” at THE WELL Spa

Posted by Michelle Stewart  |  February 27, 2014

You deserve a Spa Day. Time to relax, exhale and really pamper yourself.  For a limited time at THE WELL Spa at Miramonte Resort, you don’t have to choose between having a massage or a facial.  You can indulge in both!

At THE WELL Spa, we have married two popular spa treatments for extra pampering in one visit with a 60-minute Maestro massage and a 30-minute Custom Hydrating Facial for only $129 through April 2014.     

The Maestro Massage and Custom Hydrating Facial are the most requested spa treatments. As a way to show our appreciation to our loyal guests and to introduce THE WELL Spa to new clients, we decided to combine our most popular treatments into a special package with incredible pricing. Now you can pamper yourself by saying “yes” to both treatments.

A Sexy Twist on Paint Night…Your Sweetheart is the Canvas at Miramonte Resort & Spa

Posted by Laura Hunt Little  |  January 31, 2014

A luxury spa setting…An enclosed courtyard cabana for two…A private outdoor shower…A palette of colorful muds and soft brushes…and your creative imagination. Can you think of a more tantalizing Valentine’s experience?

At THE WELL Luxury Spa at Miramonte Resort in Indian Wells, the Pittura Festa (“painting party”) couple’s spa treatment is set in the perfect environment for couples to celebrate the creative side of their relationship.  Couples are escorted by a Spa Therapist to their private cabana with outdoor shower and given a palette of skin-nourishing, colorful muds and soft brushes along with brief instructions on how to use the materials. Then, the Therapist leaves the couple to their privacy and imagination to paint whatever appeals to them, using each other’s skin as the canvas for their own work of art.

Pedicures Promote Healthy Feet

Posted by Michelle Stewart  |  October 15, 2013

It is rare to find someone who doesn’t enjoy the luxury of a relaxing spa pedicure. Having your toes and legs pampered just feels great. But, did you know that having a pedicure has health benefits as well?

There are several health benefits in properly maintaining your feet:

Clipping and cleaning of the nails prevents ingrown nails which can cause pain and even infection.

Removing calluses helps to improve the comfort of your feet. Having calluses on your feet can cause uneven pressure when you walk or stand and lead to aching feet.

Exfoliation prevents the cells from accumulating and causing painful bunions or corns. Removing dead skins cells also encourages newer skin cell growth which creates a smoother, more appealing foot.

Massaging the feet and legs in enjoyable and has many benefits. The lotion and oils used in the massage moisturize the newly exfoliated skin, and massaging promotes circulation in the calves and feet. Increased circulation improves agility and maintains strong foot muscles for walking.

A pampering foot massage is also a great way to reduce stress.

Posted by Laura Hunt Little  |  May 24, 2013

Six times each year, THE WELL Luxury Spa at Miramonte Resort offers an incredible evening of relaxation where guests can sample the many rejuvenating treatments offered. Guests look forward to receiving their party invitation and we always sell out of tickets fast.

When the night of the event comes around, party goers gather in front of the Spa to register, pick up a gift bag and raffle ticket. At check-in, we have the opportunity to meet our guests and find out a little of what brought them to our Spa open house.

Last night we learned about several special guests and occasions. We greeted two mother-daughter pairs who chose THE WELL Spa Party for some much-needed together time. What a fastastic way to celebrate the bond between mother and daughter during this month of celebrating Moms!

WELLness Blog: Get Glowing

Posted by Michelle Stewart, Director of the Spa  |  October 01, 2012

For the last couple of days I’ve stood  in front of my vanity looking at all the potions I have to put on my face, step-by-step, to keep my skin looking young and vibrant.  I start with my serum for anti-aging, then another serum for my hyper-pigmentation, next my eye cream, followed by my moisturizer, sunscreen and finally my foundation. Phhhew….  As a working mother of two, I have to wake up at the crack of dawn for all these steps to happen. Does this sound familiar?

WELLness Blog: Geo Thermal Therapy

Posted by Michelle Stewart  |  April 20, 2012

Geo Thermal Therapy was founded two centuries ago in North America by the Paleo-Indians.  It was originally used for the medicinal properties of the hot and cold temperatures.  “Geo” means stone and “thermal” means temperature.  Many spas are incorporating Geo-Thermal therapies today into their treatments due to the benefits of the cold and warm temperatures.  Hot and cold stones that are placed on the skin allow for the blood stream to open and push toxins from our vascular system boosting the immune system.

WELLness Blog: Laugh it off

Posted by Michelle Stewart  |  March 16, 2012

Humor relieves stress and anxiety and prevents depression, helping put our troubles in perspective. Laughter can help boost the immune system, increase pain tolerance, enhance mood and creativity, and lower blood pressure, potentially improving treatment outcomes for many health problems. Humor may also be related to happiness, which has been linked to high self-esteem, extroversion, and feeling in control.

Miramonte, A Midsummer’s Night Dream

Posted by Ashleigh Tripp  |  August 29, 2011

Recently, Miramonte Resort & Spa received some great coverage on Boomer-Living.com from writer, Marjorie Rothstein.

Read the article here:

At the end of July I had this dream of swimming laps in the moonlight on a warm summer’s eve. The pool was huge, and the water was fresh and just the right temperature. As usual, I would not dive in, since I like to go in more slowly these days. But the water was so perfect, a fast dive skimming the surface and landing smoothly on the great expanse would have been heavenly. Every...

Memorial Weekend Skincare Tips from Spa Director, Christina Frantzen

Posted by Ashleigh Tripp  |  May 27, 2011

If you’re like us (Heeeeello, sunny California!), we love the sun, and we love long holiday weekends even more! This weekend while you’re out and about, by the pool, or even road-tripping in the car, be sure to keep in mind safe sun practices. Our Spa Director, Christina Franzten, has some great tips for keeping your skin healthy while getting a dose of sunshine.

  • Use sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF or higher. Slather it on if your tanning in the sun, or walking around with exposed skin. Even if you’re cruising around in the car you still need the protection. Harmful UVB and UVA rays can penetrate, especially if your sun roof is open.
    Christina Tip: The Well Spa carries a fantastic product, Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 from Skinceuticals. The formula is groundbreaking, ultra-sheer, with no chemical filters! It can be used on all skin types, even very sensitive skin. Broad spectrum, high UV protection, and paraben-free.
