SpaVital at Pura Vida

A roster of waxing services, nail care, 11 different massages, and more than a dozen skin-care options make SpaVital the perfect full-service spa.

Elixir Mind Body Massage

Yes, this place is located across the street from 5280's offices, but convenience isn't why we love it. Elixir goes beyond the quick tension-fix to total nirvana. It isn't a full-service spa, but let's be honest: Massage therapy is the focal point of any spa day anyway. Choose from 13 massages that can be combined with 11 enhancements, such as aromatherapy, a sugar scrub, lavender steam, and dry brushing, and mix and match from the menu for a different spa experience every time you go—which will be often.

The Spa at the Four Seasons Hotel Denver

This 10,000-square-foot mecca of pampering has 10 treatment rooms, a steam room, an indoor whirlpool, decked-out locker rooms, and experienced therapists. It’s gorgeous. But what really sets it apart from other four-star urban spas is this: Spa-goers who book a $110 treatment have full access to the hotel’s rooftop pool and bar, Level 3. In a town where pool access is limited, that’s the icing on the spa cake. Our advice: Take a day off this summer and book a 60-minute Swedish massage ($120) at 10 a.m.
