Built in 1891, the legendary Broadmoor has hosted such famous figures as John D. Rockefeller, Walt Disney, Bob Hope, Ted Turner, Jane Fonda, Joe DiMaggio, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Presidents Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush, to name just a few. It has been awarded five stars from Forbes Travel Guide for 52 consecutive years. It is unrivaled in its excellent service and beautiful accommodations. The 3,000-acre campus of the Broadmoor lies in the shadow of the majestic Cheyenne Mountain in the Southern Rocky Mountains. The grounds boast an impressive 54 holes of championship golfing, six tennis courts, and three pools. The Colorado Spa, located in the main hotel, holds itself to this same high standard, also winning a five star rating from Forbes. The impressive list of treatments includes options like the Almond Blossom Salt Soak and a Chardonnay Sugar Scrub that combines ground grape seeds and sugar to exfoliate your skin, revealing a flaunt-worthy glow. After an exhilarating scrub, soothe your skin with a Botanical Green Tea Wrap that is designed to calm the most irritated skin.
Tempting Treatment: Ceremonial Turmeric Scrub
Exfoliating ground rice powder is combined with the healing properties of turmeric, tangerine, and rose oil to create a uniquely invigorating spa treatment. This treatment was originally designed to pamper Indian royalty. Following the treatment, an application of Lavender Hand and Body Cream will help keep skin supple long after you have left the spa.
