Pamper yourself after your Yosemite adventures and indulge in the 5,000 square foot Rush Creek Spa open July 1, 2020. Our brand new indoor/outdoor spa is filled with innovative elements inspired by the natural beauty, features and power of Yosemite, and our spa treatments integrate our signature combination of stone, sound, scent, and warmth.
Our covered, heated outdoor spa area provides a year-round, cozy environment with multiple water features, a relaxing lounge area, fresh mountain air and beautiful scenery.
The health benefits of our Aromatherapy Steam Room extend beyond relieving anxiety. Infused with eucalyptus and amber lighting, our steam room is designed to alleviate headaches, boost cognition, promote sleep, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion, and increase circulation.
Our dry Himalayan Salt Block Sauna aims to increase blood flow under the skin and works to reduce inflammation, redness, swelling, itching, and dryness which can also reduce the frequency and severity of Eczema flare-ups.
Our Cold Mist Shower is a sure way to invigorate you before your Yosemite adventures or between hot spa features, or to reduce muscle soreness post-workout. The mist helps increase circulation and calms itchy skin. Close your eyes and the mist will feel reminiscent of a breeze blowing by a waterfall, gently misting the surrounding area. The cool mist room also features cold and warm downpour options for a full sensory experience.
Step into our Sensory Room, leave your troubles behind and immerse yourself in an infinitely relaxing environment. The soothing, multi-sensory experience calms the body and clears the mind, allowing you the mental freedom to meditate or let your imagination take you away. You will leave the Sensory Room with heightened awareness, improved alertness and an overall sense of well-being.
Yosemite’s Waterfalls have always inspired and offered refreshment and renewal. Our one-of-a-kind indoor Warm Waterfall Rejuvenation Station is designed to do the same and help you relax and de-stress in today’s busy world. This feature is inspired by a restorative experience our Spa Director, Gigi, had one day while exploring a local’s favorite hiking spot, Carlon Falls. Gigi wanted to emulate the feeling of sitting on a stone in nature and having a waterfall flow right over your shoulders, massaging and surrounding you. We added the warmth for comfort and a rain curtain so you can experience looking out from behind a waterfall at the same time. Lower your blood pressure and improve your physical and mental health as you enjoy the therapeutic effects inspired by Mother Nature.
Another of our favorite unique features is our River Rock Beds, inspired by lazy afternoons lying on Yosemite’s sun-baked, smooth granite. There is nothing like the soothing, penetrating heat of stone on the body. Let the healing nature of the heated stones relieve muscle tension and pain, reduce stress, and sooth your body and soul.
