Go to the Hot Springs Lodge and Pool, Glenwood Springs, CO, in the fall of 2008, and you’ll find a new 20,000- square-foot spa. 

Plans include eight massage treat­ment rooms and one wet treatment room. It’s designed as a full-service natural spa with a focus on healing. 

He said a consultant who has designed spas around the globe outlined the spa’s focus, but some details may be refined once the spa hires a director. There will be eight massage treatment rooms and one specialized hydrotherapy treatment room.

The Hot Springs Lodge and Pool has worked toward a business plan to include a spa for more than five years. 

The history of the property and the hot springs pool will make an excellent fit with a spa, he added.

“Our mission is to make people feel better, and this spa is a perfect compli­ment to our athletic club and pool facilities,” Mitchell said.
