Whether it’s a sporting event, a new museum exhibit or a restaurant opening, Houston is always buzzing. While you may want to absorb it all, allow yourself some much-needed rest and treat yourself to a stay at one (or more) of these spa-centric spots in the most populous city in Texas. Read more to discover the best spa hotels Houston has to offer, bookable with Culture Trip.
In the heart of the Texas Piney Woods, The Woodlands Resorts is a forested escape just 30 minutes’ drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Houston. Break a sweat on one of the spa hotel’s jogging paths, breathing in the surrounding nature, before heading to the signature spa to enjoy the eucalyptus steam rooms, whirlpool hot tubs and outdoor Forest Deck pool. For a full day of decadence, try the Enchanted Forest Experience, which includes a massage, body treatments and nail treatments.
The first Spa by JW in North America, JW Marriott Houston Downtown’s spa stands in stark contrast to its buzzy business-district neighborhood. Unwind in the cozy relaxation lounge before embarking upon a personalized treatment, created to address your emotional and physical needs. Max-out your pampering with a stay in one of the hotel’s Spa Suites, complete with an oversized sculpted tub, a spa lounger and adjustable mood lighting.
Hotel ZaZa Memorial City is known for its whimsical, globally inspired concept suites. And this wanderlust vibe is omnipresent through the hotel’s ZaSpa: a posh, mid-century-modern haven with a complete menu of restorative treatments; or try one of the seasonal, local skin and hair products that take from global healing therapies. ZaSpa’s Signature Facial adopts a holistic approach: an in-depth consultation, a customized facial and finally, a prescription for skin-care practices, beauty foods and herbal remedies.
Located between River Oaks and The Galleria, The St Regis Houston is home to an intimate spa that delivers holistic healing. Specializing in natural treatments from around the world, this candlelit temple to luxury offers massages, facials and a robust menu of unique body treatments: try the popular Shirodhara, an ancient Eastern ritual involving the pouring of warm oil in a steady stream on your forehead, complemented by a herbal foot soak, paraffin-wax hand treatment and Indian scalp and ear massage.
Connected to the George R. Brown Convention Center via skywalk, this hotel’s Skyline Spa & Health Club is a relaxing retreat for conference attendees, tourists and urban locals alike. Skyline’s spa menu features massages, facials and body treatments, but for the full Houston experience, choose a manicure, pedicure or hair service. The nail and hair salon’s floor-to-ceiling windows wow with gorgeous panoramic city views.
Prepare to be uplifted, before you even begin your session, by the mauve accents and crisp, bright-white marble at this Four Seasons’ signature spa. Aim to loll in the cozy, plush relaxation room prior to one of the most restful foot rituals in town: a Deborah Lippman Signature Pedicure. The celebrity manicurist’s product line and therapies crop up throughout the spa. Show off your pretty pedicure at one of the hotel’s calming yoga classes later during your stay.
This very good-looking, big-brand design hotel transports you from the downtown location with a decadent, early-20th-century feel. While Beauty & Beyond offers an array of massage services, the place is best-known for its lauded facial treatments, including Oxygen Facials, Microdermabrasion, LED treatments and chemical peels. If you’re toting a teen around, try out the Teen Facial for a joint spa day.
