Emerson Spa again awarded Four-Star rating from Mobil

Mt. Tremper – For the fifth year in a row, The Spa at Emerson Resort & Spa has been awarded the elite accolade of a four-star rating from the Mobil Travel Guide. The Emerson Resort & Spa is one of only five spas in New York State to receive the honor.
Susan Keene, spa director of Emerson Resort & Spa, credits the 2009 Mobil recognition to the exceptional personal service, attention and variety of treatments provided by her staff. “Our guests appreciate the diverse mix of global therapies and traditional treatments that we offer. But it is our staff, and the consideration and interest they take in each guest that has established Emerson Resort & Spa as one of the elite spas in the country, a claim this award clearly supports.” Keene added, “Our vision is to provide beauty, relaxation and wellness through remarkable treatments, organic options and environmentally safe practices.”
Absorbing influences from India, China, the Middle East, Japan and Italy, Emerson Resort & Spa creates a sense of arriving in a truly imaginative and unique place. Upon entering the exotic Indian-inspired spa, guests are welcomed by impressive 13-foot tall, 17th century Rajasthani palace doors and led into a relaxation area that blends slate, butter-yellow leather seating and tapestries with carved elephant heads and Indian deities. Spa therapies include Ayurvedic treatments such as Shirodhara, where warm, herb-infused oil is slowly streamed onto the forehead and massaged into the scalp; Dosha Balancing which includes analysis of the element forces of the body combined with massage based on Dosha type; and Maharini facials with specially selected oils and herbs. Guests can enjoy the many stress-relieving features of The Spa including an outdoor, mountain-view hot tub, saunas and steam showers, fitness classes including yoga, tai-chi and salsa dancing, and a Nautilus fitness center that also offers private memberships. The adjacent Spa Café offers refreshing, freshly made fruit and vegetable drinks along with seasonal salads, soups and wraps.
The international theme continues into The Inn’s guest suites which feature rich royal blues, violets, golds and reds. Hallways are adorned with hand-carved wooden accent pieces. Oversized bathrooms feature tumbled marble stone flooring, air-jetted tubs for two and Swiss showers. Other defining amenities include a 24-bottle in-room wine selection, flat-screen TV’s, stream-side decks with mountain views, and canopied beds.
Emerson Resort & Spa is open year-round and is available for corporate meetings, group retreats, weddings and other special events. Reservations can be made at 877 688-2828.
