Ladies, these last two years haven’t been the easiest.
For some of us, we’ve temporarily abandoned our favorite self-care habits; whether they were soothing massages or even an hour of pampering at the nail salon. And even a simple girls’ day out with our best of girlfriends might have been off the table.
Let’s be honest. At-home bath sessions and painting our own nails just aren’t cutting it.
But wait no longer. It’s time for a ladies’ day!
So let’s get this party started…
Morning Yoga & Soak At SunWater Spa
Rise and shine in Manitou Springs at SunWater Spa and partake in an invigorating yoga session that will leave you inspired and refreshed. In-person yoga classes take place in the Heart Center of SunWater spa with experienced yoga instructors that will guide you to the warrior within.
After spending time to reconnect and reflect on these past two years, embrace that beautiful energy in and around you, then immerse yourself in one of SunWater’s Spa healing mineral soaking spas. The earth’s mineral water spills into large cedar tubs and maintains a temperature between 100 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine that with incredible mountain views for the perfect backdrop and a Zen moment or two.
Don’t forget to end your soak with a dip in the saltwater plunge to help improve circulation, enhance sleep quality, and relieve pain.
Manitou Hair Emporium
Massage, haircuts, and makeovers, oh my! Nothing says ladies’ day like a full makeover and updo.
A soothing hair wash and scalp massage at the Manitou Hair Emporium can bring you deep relaxation and all the tingles. But why stop there?
Freshen up your current look with a new haircut, add some permanent waves, or lighten your look with some sun-drenched highlights. Dig your heels into deep bliss with a massage or exfoliate old layers of yourself with one of their chemical peels.
Complete the look with a full glowing makeover or go bold with a bit of bright lip color.
Homa Cafe + Bar
Surround yourself with warm wood tones, dangling plants hanging from every ceiling, and large windows to let the glorious Colorado light in at Homa Cafe + Bar. Just a short walk from downtown, Homa is located in the Kinship Landing hotel and is the perfect place to replenish with food and liquid provisions.
Take a seat in their spacious greenhouse or around the wood-burning stove to chat over refreshing cocktails like the Ketel one botanical Drunken Botanist or the Ford’s Gin Garden Party cocktail.
Try the Chef’s Board of meats, cheeses, and veggies, a healthy quinoa bowl, or a leafy green salad topped with salmon or chicken. And don’t leave without a sweet treat! The CO2-infused Bubbly Fruit or the subtly sweet Polenta topped with lavender whipped cream are sinful and satisfying.
The Broadmoor Full Spa Experience
The Broadmoor offers one of the most luxurious spa experiences in southwest Colorado Springs. Take a trip to pamper heaven with one of their massages, facials, manicures, or pedicures. Choose from a variety of blissful packages or order a la carte.
Consider beginning with a soothing deep tissue, Swedish, or hot stone massage. Awaken your senses with the Rise and Shine facial, go natural with the raw, organic ingredients of the Pure Facial, or add the restorative Timeless Facial.
Or splurge on a custom package to address all your beauty needs. The Queen Bee and The Five Star Reveals are some of our favorites.
