Northern Michigan Spa Takes Top Honors

Northern Michigan is no stranger to top ten lists or awards, with its food, wine, cheese, etc. all being recognized in the past.  So why not add one more accolade to the list?  Last week, Crystal Spa took home three awards from two premier spa publications.  Spa Magazine awarded Crystal Spa with two Silver Sage Awards (Favorite Hotel Resorts/Spas: Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest category and Favorite Green/Eco Spa).  SpaFinder named Crystal Spa to its list of Ten Best Spas for Environmental Practices. Located in Thompsonville at the Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa, Crystal Spa opened in January of 2009.  It is one of eight LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) spas in the nation and the only one in the Midwest.  "The 18,500 square-foot facility features 12 treatment rooms, including a dual treatment room and Vichy shower, meditation lounge, outdoor meditation garden with hot tub, locker rooms with infrared saunas and steam rooms, and a manicure and pedicure salon. In addition, the building includes a fitness center with the latest cardio- and strength-training equipment, motion studio, and an indoor pool and hot tub."

Congratulations, Crystal Spa!  I'll be visiting soon!
