The Boulders resort has been sold once again - to date the spa which is about 15 years old has had at least 3 owners, the most recent of which just took over this month and things are definitely not looking up. SO, so very sad. While much of the spa had been redone this year due to leaking from... More

The spa has steam, sauna, and soak pool. The showers are very nice and plenty of room. The locker rooms are very small. If you have any bags with you, be sure to ask for a large locker. Even the large lockers are very small.

There are so many services, you may need to spend some time to get just what you really want. The food is great! The people are awesome, and the pool is the best on property. You can regenerate your soul here.

With eager anticipation and giddy excitement, my husband and I walked trough the doors to the Waldorf Astoria Spa. Without Ashley (Spa reservations agent) who not only took great care of us in suggesting the couples massage, we would not have had one of the best spa experiences ever. I thank you for being knowledgeable and anticipating our needs and... More

Three of us went hiking with Rico while we were staying at The Boulders. Rico was just great! He listened to us about the type of hike we wanted, and provided us with that and more. Rico is an excellent tour guide, and when we're back at The Boulders we'll be seeing him again!

Enjoyed a couples massage with a private hot tub and steam shower for our anniversary. The service was impeccable and the tranquil setting that the spa sits on is out of this world. I would recommend this spa for any occasion.
