Ready to retreat from urban madness for a day? Take a short trip over the bridge to the Cavallo Point Spa, at Cavallo Point “the lodge at the golden gate”. Making the most of its location and drawing inspiration from the nearby coastline, Cavallo Point Spa surrounds its guests with natural beauty inside and out.
Highlighted by a graceful willow tree, which the architect used as a focal point for the design of the building, the spa features floor to ceiling windows, a fireplace and a spacious and comfortable waiting room. Coloring books of famous fine art are available alongside the usual array of magazines. Guests can use the accompanying colored pencils to exercise their right brain faculties, enhancing the relaxing influence of the spa environment. This unique offering was inspired by the influence of well known artists, whose work is featured on a rotating basis on the walls of the Cavallo Point Lodge.
After taking in the beauty of the spa environment, I went off to enjoy a steam in the spa’s herbal sauna, then washed off in one of the deluxe indoor showers, decorated with an inlaid arrangement of eucalyptus leaves, which further enhanced and continued the eco-art design of Cavallo Point.
Scheduled to receive a signature massage, I sat near the fire in the lounge and colored a reproduction of the Venus de Milo while I waited for my therapist. I was soon escorted to one of Cavallo Points calming massage room upstairs,where I once again admired one of the many beautiful views from inside my treatment room. Sixty relaxed minutes later, after a deep Swedish style massage, I wasn’t yet ready to depart from the soothing environment of Cavallo Point. Luckily, the spacious steam sauna provided me with an excellent excuse to linger a bit longer.
