The Spa at Zermatt Sets the Gold Standard with a Day’s Getaway

Immersing yourself in Park City’s active lifestyle can sometimes be a little rough on our bodies and harsh on the skin, but The Spa at Zermatt Resort, located in nearby picturesque Midway, has the golden ticket to rejuvenate and regenerate even the most mountain-weary among us.

Nestled along the edge of the lush Wasatch State Park, a day trip to Zermatt evokes a European-inspired escape right in our own backyard. With stunning scenery highlighted by the sublime beauty of the Heber Valley, the sparkling Provo River and the majestic Mount Timpanogos, even the short drive out to Th e Spa unfolds as the perfect transition to a day of bliss.

Zermatt Spa offers personalized spa treatments, blending performance and relaxation as well as a sensory experience that is adapted to your skin type. On the menu: the 75-minute Golden Spa Body Ritual followed by the Golden Veil Facial, perfect for tired muscles and dehydrated skin from head to toe.

“The exceptional regenerating power of 24-karat gold is combined with two anti-aging flowers to enhance the face and body,” said Spa Director Tunde Opra. “It is an exceptionally dazzling experience with powerful antioxidants that regenerate and stimulate collagen production while also being exceptionally moisturizing.” Every step of these gorgeous multi-layered treatments includes massage techniques, which bring to life the extraordinary scents that are the hallmark of the Fleur’s products used to create their signature treatments.

“Each treatment and product they create provides a unique and sensory experience,” said Opra, noting the company’s use of 40 floral ingredients as well as its commitment to environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.

The Golden Spa Body Ritual begins with an uplifting body scrub using an apricot and flower exfoliating cream that lift s away dead skin cells and eliminates impurities with its coconut shell, apricot kernel and date pit exfoliating powders. Once thoroughly massaged and buff ed to perfection, this gilded beauty treatment kicks it up a notch with its sparkling gold body mask, wrapped warm in a comfortable cocoon for maximum hydration that also detoxifies and boosts elasticity.

This moment of ultimate relaxation is elevated with a decadent head, neck and shoulder massage before transitioning to a brief but restorative rinse-off , and finished with an application of silky passionflower body milk. Th is pearly body milk leaves the skin super moisturized, delicately perfumed and satiny soft thanks to its smoothing texture that deposits a lightly iridescent veil on the skin.

For an ultra-comprehensive treatment for the face, décolleté and hands, the 60-minute Golden Veil Facial is perfect to liven dull, uneven complexions and skin with dark spots. The treatment begins with a Golden Peel to brighten and refine the skin’s texture.

This facial exfoliant, rich and creamy in texture, is ideal for the delicate skin on the face and neck, boasting natural enzymes that gently eliminate dead cells and impurities, while refining the skin’s texture and stimulating cellular regeneration.

A quenching and plumping facial massage helps reveal your most radiant skin, left smooth and velvety with an application of a rich, creamy and slightly iridescent moisturizer that leaves a floral trail infusing notes of carnation and iris, known for its mattifying and purifying powers.

The finishing touch is the Golden Supreme Mask that detoxifies and smooths the skin for a complexion that literally shimmers with golden, pearly flecks and a delicious fragrance that leaves your skin ideally moisturized.

Heighten your facial experience with your choice of three types of enhancements: High-Frequency Thermal Treatment, great for spot-treating acne or aft er any waxing treatment; Plumping Lip Smoother, perfect for combatting the signs of aging around the mouth; and Youthful Look Eye Zone, a smoothing and draining massage and mask ideal for the delicate skin around the eye area. (Note: Your choice of one upgrade is available with every 90-minute facial.) Two additional enhancements are available with any body treatment or facial: the Restorative Scalp Treatment and Foot Zone; each take an additional 15 minutes.
