Of all the reasons to visit the Kohler Waters Spa, the most important may be to enjoy a day of relaxing therapies. The Kohler Waters Spa is located in Kohler, Wisconsin–home of the famous Kohler line of plumbing fixtures. The village of Kohler is nestled into the farmland of Wisconsin and, on first sight, is one of the last places you would expect to find a top-rated resort and spa.
Kohler Waters Spa is open daily and advertises its waters as being rich in minerals that rejuvenate the body. Guests are advised to bring a bathing suit, comfortable clothing and shoes and a journal or book. They are also advised to leave jewelry and other valuables, as well as cell phones, at home. There is a co-ed pool at the spa as well as men’s and women’s facilities. For convenience, the spa provides towels, robes and all basic showering supplies.
The array of services is another reason to visit Kohler Waters Spa. First, there is a variety of options for “remineralizing” in the spa waters. For instance, guests can choose from an Acoustic Bath that combines music and vibration with exfoliation and Kohler’s custom hydro-massage or a “River Bath” that utilizes color therapy and moisturizing along with the whirlpool. Kohler also offers a full menu of massages including Aromatherapy and Maternity Massage, scrubs, wraps, facials, manicures, pedicures, scalp and hair services and a list of spa services developed especially for men.
Couples can book treatments for two and a variety of packages are offered. The Bridal Package is intended to accommodate the bride and all of her attendants and includes a Chardonnay Pedicure and a facial or massage. Kohler Waters Spa also offers a number of “Energy Therapies” such as Body Talk, a hands-on therapy meant to rebalance the body’s energy and Craniosacral Therapy that employs a trained therapist to gently manipulate and release restrictions in the head and neck. In 2011, the cost of spa services started at 100 dollars.
The spa also provides special one-day seminars, ongoing wellness classes, spa cuisine, a fitness center and a boutique.
Kohler Waters Spa is located within the American Club Hotel. The American Club is an AAA Five Diamond Resort Hotel that provides luxury lodging and dining for spa visitors. Spa guests may want to book a room in the American Club’s Carriage House which houses the spa’s co-ed pool and fitness center. Guests at the Carriage House enjoy a complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and appetizers in the evening as well as convenient access to the spa. All rooms are non-smoking and include advance tee time to near-by golf courses. In 2011, the fee for a Standard King room at the American Club was approximately 400 dollars. The fee for a Deluxe Double room in the Carriage House was approximately 600 dollars. Special discounts and packages are available.
