Spending the day at the spa is the perfect way to give yourself some extra TLC in a relaxing environment. You may assume that a day at the spa has to cost hundreds of dollars—but that may not be the case! If you’re wanting to relax and unwind but don’t want to shell out a few hundred dollars for a massage or another expensive spa treatment, you can take advantage of spa day passes. This is a great way to access luxury spa amenities at an affordable cost.
How does it work? Many spas, even the more luxurious ones, offer access to their spa facilities for a daily rate. That means you can sit back and relax, dip in and out of the sauna and baths, and read a good book for an affordable daily rate. It can be nice to pay for an amazing spa treatment, but sometimes it’s nice to do your own thing! A spa day pass lets you do exactly that, and it costs a fraction of what you’d typically pay for a fancy spa treatment.
If you’re planning a trip, check with the hotel’s spa to see if they offer day passes. Some spas only offer day passes on weekdays while others offer it all week, but you’ll pay a bit more for weekend access. There may also be a set amount sold each day, so it’s better to check earlier in the day time. You usually have access to all the spa amenities—like the sauna, baths, relaxation rooms, showers, and locker rooms, and some spas even have snacks, fruit, and teas available for you. This is the ultimate way to have a relaxing day.
Many spas that you know and love offer day passes, but here is a list of options to consider if you’re thinking of planning a trip soon. This will give you an idea of pricing that is typically in place:
The Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, AZ: $40 per day

The next time you’re craving a day of no-stress fun, consider heading to your hotel’s spa or a nearby luxury spa and create your own day of relaxation. Investing in a spa day pass is the perfect way to add a bit of luxury to your day without overspending. Plan a solo day or a girls’ day soon!
