Gracing the Texas Gulf Coast since 1911, Hotel Galvez — a Wyndham Historic Hotel — opened its $6 million, 9,736 square-foot Spa at Hotel Galvez on March 15. Visitors to the Mediterranean-inspired spa will experience treatments in one of seven ocean-themed rooms that promote nature and wellness.
Dedicated to total well-being, the Spa at Hotel Galvez goes beyond the “pampering experience” to offer a full sampling of treatments. The signature Galvez Stone Massage combines the elements of massage with the therapeutic qualities of hot and cold stones to stimulate and detoxify the skin while promoting healing through muscle pain alleviation and body awakening.
Executive chef Jerry Helminski presents a spa cuisine menu that creates a balance of health and decadence. Spa guests will have the chance to indulge in a tempting range of creations, including inside-out couscous rolls, curried shrimp cappuccino and a dessert course that begs the question, “Is chocolate a sin?” Like the spa, the cuisine will be inspired by the ocean, with courses like “The Cure,” which incorporates various sea salts, and “Revitalize,” which features pan-roasted sea bass served with blue lip mussels and roasted beet puree.
Post-treatment, a Spa Meditation Garden will be available for spa guests, featuring chaise lounge chairs, a rock garden, water wall and juice and smoothie bar. Group yoga and meditation instruction will also be offered in the garden. For those opting to stay indoors, a large, softly-lit relaxation room will provide individual seating and music selection, using sheer curtains to allow the utmost privacy and reflection.
