Just in time for guests to treat themselves to New Year relaxation and rejuvenation, Spa Pechanga reopens to all guests for their beauty and well-being needs. The two-level, luxury spa at Pechanga Resort Casino previously allowed hotel guests, Pechanga RV Resort, Temecula Creek Inn, and Pechanga Club Red tier and above guests to book treatments. Now, members of the public ages 21 and older may book treatments at the acclaimed spa. Spa Pechanga also introduces new massage, facial and nail treatments. These services utilize Native botanicals known to Pechanga ancestors for their healing properties. Guests may also purchase Pechanga gift cards for friends and loved ones to use toward spa services. For Spa Pechanga reservations, call (951) 770-8501 or (877) 711-2946.
Spa Pechanga opened in late 2018 as part of the resort’s $300 million expansion. One of only a few Native American spas in California truly incorporating native botanicals into services, treatments are inspired by the Pechanga Great Oak Tree, revered by the Pechanga Tribe for its strength and life-affirming presence. Many of the spa services incorporate the use of botanicals native to the Temecula region including include sage, prickly pear, and more.
Other elements not indigenous to the area such as lavender, rosemary, and mint, the Pechanga people learned how to apply as medicines and flavor enhancements in teas and foods. Spa Pechanga’s new massage treatments include the Great Oak Massage as a 50 or 80-minute service, the Luxury Lavender Massage, and the Journey of the Payómkawichum – a soothing and meditative sound relaxation experience, taking the guest on an aural journey. The soundtrack was recorded by Pechanga’s Creative Studios team and incorporates sounds Tribal people would have encountered on a trek from the Southern California ocean to the area now the Pechanga reservation. Spa guests can relax to crashing ocean waves, babbling creeks, a crackling campfire, wind through trees, and more. New facial treatments include the Acai Facial and the Apple Stem Cell facial.
“Our world moves so incredibly fast. Guests actively seek a way to slow down and relax, and that includes allowing their spirits and minds to relax as well,” said Myra Masiel, Pechanga cultural curator and archeologist.
“Spa Pechanga is a place of tranquility and well-being. We’re happy to be able to offer that to all visitors and residents of the Temecula Valley so they may truly know the healing powers and health benefits that come with reduced stress and tension,” said Rachel Patane, Spa Pechanga Manager.
A spa day pass proves a good option for guests wishing to experience the spa, though not wanting a massage, facial or nail treatment. For $75 for non-hotel and $60 for hotel guests, visitors may take advantage of all the spa amenities for the day. This gives them access to the state-of-the-art workout facility, men’s or women’s lounge, steam room, sauna, hydrotherapy pool, spa pool, relaxation room, outdoor relaxation deck, complimentary healthful snacks, teas, and infused waters.
