Galveston Island, TX – May 2009 – The Hotel Galvez, a Wyndham® Historic Hotel and National Trust Historic Hotel of America, is scheduled to reopen its 9,736 square-foot spa on Monday, June 1. The spa is reopening following a full restoration to repair damage sustained from Hurricane Ike. This $6 million hotel spa in Galveston originally opened in March 2008 and includes an accompanying salon and fitness center.

The spa has been restored with the same Mediterranean-inspired décor designed to complement the architectural features of the hotel and create an inviting coastal sanctuary for guests. The spa features a total of seven treatment rooms, including massage rooms, hydrotherapy room, Vichy shower room, and couple’s massage room for luxurious pampering. The spa also offers the tranquil oases of the Relaxation Room, outdoor Meditation Garden and private lounge for parties. A Spa Boutique presents a wide selection of products, allowing guests to continue the spa experience at home.

France-based Phytomer and Yonka products are featured. Phytomer, meaning “plants of the sea,” follows the principles of thalassotherapy, or marine therapy. Yonka is a pioneer of aesthetic aromatherapy and phytotherapy.
A full menu of treatments is available to satisfy every need. The salon is a Kérastase level six-station salon, a distinction given to approximately 1,000 up-scale salons nationwide. Other featured products include Creative Design nail products, La Bella Donna cosmetics and L’Oreal for hair color. Four pedicure chairs, a three-station manicure bar, a retail boutique and lobby complete the salon. Post-treatment, a Meditation Garden features chaise lounge chairs, a rock garden, and a water wall for guests.

The full-service fitness center is equipped with Precor treadmills, elliptical cross trainers and cycles all fitted with 12-inch personal flat screen television screens and complete with MP3 and iPod® docking stations.

The Spa will be open Mondays – Fridays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about The Spa, call 409-515-2100 or visit
