THIS JUST IN! Introducing Tenaya Spa at the Grand Californian!
Your visit to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa at Disneyland Resort just got a whole lot more exciting! Today, Disney revealed some of the exciting details regarding the opening of Tenaya Stone Spa. This boutique spa will officially open on September 16, 2021.
For guests at the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, you can being planning your special day now. As advanced reservations are officially open.
The entire spa was inspired by the spirit of nature which is perfectly in keeping with the rustic feel and California heritage celebrated by this property! As a matter of fact the name Tenaya (pronounced ten-eye-a) can be interpreted as “to dream” in Yosemite Valley culture. Dawn Jackson, a Native American Cultural Advisor even worked on the project as an Imagineer.
Jackson said of the experience, “For modern-day travelers seeking a respite to dream and recharge, the spa provides an opportunity to relax into a dream-like state, a reverie of being lost in one’s thoughts, regaining balance within themselves.”
On offer will be an array of awesome spa services including body treatments, massage and salon services. All of this will be done within an impressive 6,000 square foot facility. Designed by Disney’s Imagineers this area perfectly captures the spirit of nature, cultures of Californian and the Craftsman-style architecture found at the resort.
Katrina Mosher of Disneyland Imagineering said of the project, “We drew inspiration from the foundation of the hotel, literally in the stones, the earth, and the trees, and figuratively in the promise of a place to relax and to dream.”
Inside guests will find eight treatment rooms. Two of these are served for couples massage. There’s also four manicure/pedicure chairs, a relaxation lounge, men’s and women’s changing rooms and a retail boutique.
Now here’s a closer look at some of the incredible treatments guests will be able to enjoy:
