Nothing compares to Crystal Mountain Spa
I have been to the spa at crystal mountain many times. It's well worth the 3-4 hour drive up north. I have searched the world to find a spa as nice and have yet to do so. I have been to Spas in Bora Bora, Europe, Las Vegas, Miami and more and none of them measure up to Crystal. It's amazing that Michigan can boast this one of a kind spa but it's the truth, it's a really special place. I'm currently designing my master bath with crystal mountains spa as my inspiration! The service is phenomenal, the amenities are top notch and the actual treatments are the best I have had in the world! You won't be disappointed if you spa here! I'm still trying to find a spa that measures up!

The most beautiful spa in Michigan. The meditation lounge is cozy and very relaxing. I received a spa crystal transformation body treatment and a pedicure. Best treatments ever!! The locker room is tastefully decorated and stocked with top quality products. An experience that I will never forget!! I have already booked a return trip!!

Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa
The new spa at Crystal Mountain is Fabulous! The facilities are lovely, serene and LEED certified. I loved the meditation room with healthy refreshments, fireplace and beautiful crystal chandalier. My treatment room was so inviting and cozy. The treatment offerings included Northern Michigan inspired ingredients and aromas, as well as meeting the needs of the fun resort activities tiring my body. It was really hard to choose what to treat myself to. After my hot stone pedicure and massage, I lounged in the infrared steam room and gorgeuos shower/locker area. I cant wait to go back! I have been checking the website and see that many treatments have again changed to fit the season and resort activities. I can assure anyone reading this that you will enjoy this spa and resort in every way!
