Tenaya Stone Spa will soon be pampering guests at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Starting on September 16, 2021, guests will be able to relax in this getaway in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Reservations opened for this new amenity today! When it opens, it will be available to guests of all three Disneyland Resort hotels. Later, the spa will open to non-hotel guests.
This will be one of the most relaxing places for guests to enjoy at the Disneyland Resort. While visiting Tenaya Stone Spa has to offer, they will be able to enjoy several different body treatments, massages, and salon services. There will be the option for a solo massage or couples massages in the eight treatment rooms. There are also manicure chairs, a relaxation lounge, changing rooms, and a retail boutique.
Tenaya (pronounced ten-eye-a) can be interpreted as ‘to dream’ in the indigenous culture of the Yosemite Valley. this was shared Dawn Jackson, a Native American cultural advisor within Disney. She has been working on this project as an Imagineer on the Story Development team.
“For modern-day travelers seeking a respite to dream and recharge, the spa provides an opportunity to relax into a dream-like state, a reverie of being lost in one’s thoughts, regaining balance within themselves,” Jackson shared.
The Disney Parks Blog also shared some details about the various elements of the Tenaya Stone Spa. Check them out below:
An Unparalleled Setting
Tenaya Stone Spa is a new 6,000 square-foot facility designed by Disney Imagineers who gathered inspiration from the spirit of nature, indigenous cultures of California and the iconic Craftsman design of the hotel. In developing the spa, Imagineers aspired to create a fresh take on the principles of the Arts & Crafts movement.
“We drew inspiration from the foundation of the hotel, literally in the stones, the earth, and the trees, and figuratively in the promise of a place to relax and to dream,” said Katrina Mosher, art director, Walt Disney Imagineering.
The spa features eight treatment rooms, two for couples massage, four manicure/pedicure chairs, a relaxation lounge, men’s and women’s changing rooms, and a retail boutique.
Choose from massage therapies that include the customized Tenaya Signature Massage, and the Tenaya River Stone Massage that incorporates heated river stones help to soothe and relax the body. Slip into nirvana with the Head, Hands & Feet With Heart Massage or unwind with your significant other with a side-by-side Tenaya Signature Couples Massage.
The Aromatherapy Massage is also pure bliss, using plant-based aromas made from essential oils infused with gem elixirs and flower essences. The Herbal Poultice Massage uses warmed poultices designed to melt away muscle tension by combining pressure with steamed compresses of wild crafted herbs. The Mother To Be Massage uses pre-natal techniques, organic products and pre-natal cushions designed to create comfort for the expecting mommy in mind.
Herbal Body Treatments
Exfoliate and hydrate with a dreamy Purify & Refresh Body Treatment, which begins with a warm milk nectar wrap, followed by a sea salt exfoliation with notes of clove, a purifying mud wrap and an oil-infused ginger and grapefruit extract designed to promote skin rejuvenation.
