If you’ve ever needed a margarita with a 10-min. massage and full-face makeup application before hitting the town on a Friday night (us every week), AWAY Spa is here to save the day.
The newly debuted spa, like the rest of the hotel, features a playful vibe with chic amenities and caters to anyone preparing for a night out or simply recovering from one. The vibe here is more getting-ready-with-the-girls than a stuffy, hush-hush atmosphere.
Located on the first floor, guests are greeted by the check-in desk which serves as a cocktail bar more than anything. Colorful glasses, spa-driven cocktails and a curated food menu are just the start of the cool vibe. The bright, airy space features brass accents and seamlessly stretches into the intimate salon area where guests can receive manis and pedis, full hairstyling, head-to-toe waxing, lash application, brow shaping, full-face makeup and touch ups and more. There’s even USB charging ports at the mani and pedi stations for those really on the go.
Spa treatments can be enjoyed in one of seven treatment rooms. The menu features everything from massages to facials and body peels, with all treatments starting off with a signature W opening ritual. While most services are 50 or 80 min., a fun Quickie Menu offers up 10- to 25-min. massages for those short on time. For those looking for even more options, a menu of offered enhancements make customization a breeze. Guests can add on things like a Liquid Spell hair mask, a triple-action eye mask, an active face peel, a volcanic hot stone massage and more. Afterwards, enjoy the facilities which include a coed lounge, men’s and women’s locker rooms and dual-steam showers.
Furthering the girl’s-night-out vibe, the Spa After Dark amenity allows bachelorette parties or any group of friends to rent out the spa and enjoy a night of pampering. On top of that, a live DJ, juice-fueled cocktails, bottomless bubbly, small bites like sushi and acai bowls, and relaxing treatments round out the fun experience. Spa After Dark is available daily from 8 to 10 p.m. and starts at $1,000, with a free treatment for every fourth guest.
Insider Tip: All treatments at AWAY Spa include complimentary valet parking and a day pass to the hotel WET Deck. AWAY Spa also features a secret menu that can be accessed via secret code and delivered word-of-mouth to VIPs.
The AWAY Spa debut is part of W Scottsdale’s property-wide renovation and the hotel’s 10th anniversary celebration.
