It takes a rare type of personality to not stress over an investment. If you are not one of these rare creatures, and the words “c’est la vie” seldom escape your lips, you are probably incredibly stressed out to the max on a daily basis about building your own house from the ground up. Here’s one thing you can relax about, though – you’re in good company!
Building a house is notoriously stressful. If it wasn’t for the outstanding outcome, many would not venture to tackle the task at all. Home building has been known to take its toll on relationships and put added strain on daily lives for months or years (for advice on keeping your relationship steady during a tumultuous build, check this blog). As the decisions need to be made, unexpected issue arise, and the home build begins, stresses mount.
Thankfully, there are some pretty great ways to ease the tensions and reconnect with your inner calm. Tucson is home to some of the most exclusive and exquisite spas to be found anywhere in the world. Lots of out of towners and tons of celebrities make their way to Tucson every year to experience our luxury spa facilities. If Oprah can’t seem to keep herself away, why should you?
If you are looking to take a break and discover the resplendent nature of truly letting all your tensions melt away, you have one more big decision to make: Which of the numerous and equally amazing spas do you to treat yourself to?
Below are my personal recommendations for the best spa experiences to be had anywhere in Tucson.

With 18 private treatment rooms, a variety of environments to soothe the soul, a laundry list of exquisite treatments, and a eucalyptus sauna, there is no escaping ultimate relaxation at the Westin La Paloma Spa.
