Joya Spa

Joya Spa Entrance

Scottsdale doesn’t lack for five-star resort spas, so saying that Joya Spa at the Omni Montelucia is one of the best carries weight.

Joya Purification Room Blue

After a grand entrance up a dramatic spiral staircase guests transition into the spa passing through The Joy of Intention, where you choose a particular gemstone relating to what you hope to manifest in your life whether it is career, health or in my case, love. Followed by the Joy of Purification ritual where you’re invited to place your hands on a 55 lbs. crystal stone, take two breaths in and release stress to open you up to the possibilities that await.

Relaxation Room at Joya Spa

The 31,000 sq. ft. spa echoes the resort’s Mediterranean theme with a bit of a Moroccan flair evidenced in the décor. My favorite part of the spa is the relaxation room with its elaborate wood carved beds and memory foam mattresses that I dare you not to fall asleep on.

Inside each locker room, offers a water circuit and Hammam to enjoy before or after a treatment. The spa has some of the most unique services in the valley including the Arnica & Hot Towel Massage, which harnesses the power of heat and arnica to soothe especially sore and stressed muscles or cupping, an Eastern modality designed to restore the flow of Qi and release toxins from the body. The spa also shines a spotlight on the mind body connection with private guided meditation sessions, hypnotherapy and a service to help insomniacs reunite with the Sandman.

Joya Royal Suite

For couples, Joya offers the best couple suites in town. The Grand Palace Suite will make you feel like a Sultan as you indulge in some bubbly by the fireplace, soak in the tub, or take a nap in its $22,000 lavish bed. With private access to the terrace pool, it’s the ultimate spa day with your sweetie.

For locals who fall in love with Joya, the spa and fitness center there are private memberships available, which offer access to the pools, spas, exclusive events, discounts and complimentary services.
