Property Profile: Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn Resort & Spa
We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with the Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. Located in the beautiful wine country of Sonoma, the four-star luxury resort sits atop Boyes Hot Springs, rare geo-thermal waters that take center stage at the spa. Maintaining scrupulous service excellence coupled with an unmatched location, this spa is 40,000 square feet of pure bliss!
The location of Sonoma Mission Inn was considered sacred healing ground by Native Americans, who first discovered the hot mineral springs. Commercial development began in the late 1840’s. The original spa opened more than 20 years ago, and is one of the largest and best in the U.S.—voted one of the top 25 spas by Conde Nast Traveler.
With 30 treatment rooms and every amenity you can dream of, Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn is an ideal weekend getaway for the sophisticated, discerning traveler, as well as fun-seeking millennials, snapchatting poolside.
As you would expect, water takes center stage at this spa. Pools and hot tubs, fed by historic local hot springs, surround the public space and a special couples’ treatment room is outfitted with a two-person copper bathtub. The signature bathing ritual includes an exfoliating shower, dips in two mineral-water soaking pools, an herbal steam room, Himalayan dry salt sauna, and experiential rain tunnel fed by the mineral water from the pool.
The Body Bliss Aroma Design Bar is a recent addition to the Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. Spa Director Alison Abbott is integrating unique programs with the Aroma Design Bar and Intentional Aromatherapy App—catering to individuals and groups craving authentic experiences that are also therapeutic and healing.
Alison is especially excited to integrate the Aroma Design Bar into corporate meetings—offering a complimentary visit the spa boutique to make their own aromatherapy blend. In addition to attendees taking home a custom aromatherapy lotion, body butter or scrub, they receive an email or print-out of their personal blend to re-order.
Alison shared with us:
“The Aroma Design Bar is comprehensive, easy-to-use, and fun. We have so much respect for the professionalism and deep knowledge of Body Bliss founder Nick James and his team of ‘aromatherapy alchemists.’ Custom Aromatherapy is an ideal way to interact and engage our guests. Millennials especially love the combination of personalization and technology. Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn’s goal is to provide customized, authentic experiences throughout the resort. The Aroma Design bar is an ideal additional layer to our offering.”
