A spa day can be a chance to relax and let go of the stresses of daily life. That’s something that most of us can use, especially during this time of year. It can be a great way to help your body bounce back from soreness. It’s also a great way to treat yourself—and maybe a friend or loved one—during your next vacation. A few hours of focusing on wellness, treating yourself to a massage or facial, and forgetting about your lengthy to-do list can do wonders for your physical and mental health.
When it comes to a spa day, a little pre-planning can go a long way. From choosing the right massage to booking a treatment and planning ahead for where you’ll eat dinner, planning out your perfect spa day ahead of time will help ensure that everything goes smoothly on the big day.

Choose a Signature Massage
There are tons of different elements that go into a day of focusing on wellness. But the focal point of most spa days is a relaxing massage. At Five Petals Spa, we offer a variety of signature massages to choose from. You can customize your spa experience with a massage designed to target any problem spots you might have or one that’s inspired by the natural beauty of Southern Utah.
At the Cliffrose spa, one of our most popular options is our Zion Essentials Massage. Available as a 60- or 90-minute massage, it features an essential oil treatment inspired by one of Zion National Park’s most popular hiking trails. Warm essential oils rain down on your spine, much like the drops of water that fall from the edge of Weeping Rock. Hot towels are used to help the oils seep deeper into your skin as you relax in a state of utter bliss. A soothing massage follows this relaxing treatment.
Another indulgent option for focusing on wellness is our Hot Himalayan Salt Stone Retreat. During this 60- or 90-minute treatment, hot polished salt stones sourced from the Himalayan Mountains are used to treat your sore muscles. Feel your stress and tension melt away as you relax and unwind.
Add a Signature Facial
After booking your choice of massage, consider adding one of our Signature Facials. These are the perfect compliment to your spa day, and a great way to treat your skin to some extra love.
At our on-site Cliffrose spa, we offer 30, 60, and 90-minute facials. Our Sea of Life Facial is a personalized treatment that combines a cleansing treatment with a restorative mask. While the mask works its magic on your skin, you’ll enjoy a therapeutic shoulder, scalp, neck, and facial massage.
Make it a Weekend
Want to take your rest and relaxation one step further? Consider turning it into a weekend getaway. A stay at Cliffrose Lodge is the perfect chance for a spa weekend. Spend the day relaxing at Five Petals Spa. Enjoy a delicious meal at Anthera, our on-site restaurant specializing in fresh ingredients and delicious blends of flavor. Wander the resort’s incredible grounds. Take a dip in the pool or hot tub while enjoying views of the Virgin River, and the peaks of Zion National Park.
Tips for Focusing on Wellness
The goal of your spa day or weekend should be focusing on wellness. Whether you opt for an afternoon of relaxation or a full weekend, make it a point to plan ahead and ensure that every moment of your spa getaway is focused on wellness and rest.
During your spa day, drink plenty of water, and fuel your body with healthy, wholesome foods. Dress comfortably, in clothing that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable in your own skin. Consider turning off your phone or silencing unnecessary notifications to avoid any distractions. If you’re enjoying a spa day with a friend or loved one, avoid talking about work or home obligations, and instead focus on happy thoughts or fun memories. Your mind and body will thank you!
