A First Timer’s Guide To The Spa by JW®

A First Timer’s Guide To The Spa by JW®

The Spa by JW is located in the heart of paradise and offers a variety of services, treatments as well as luxury amenities paired with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. A spa day was not on my itinerary for our family vacation. In fact, I had never had a solo-spa day. Ever. What is perhaps even more shocking to people is that I also had never had a professional massage. Ever.

We arrived at the JW Marriott in Marco Island and after a couple meltdowns courtesy of my three year old, I all of a sudden found myself walking down to explore the Spa by JW. To say I experienced a, “Toto I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore…” moment is an understatement. The beautiful two-story spa offers coastal vibes along with the opportunity to experience the four hallmarks of their treatment concept including calm, renew, invigorate, and indulge. Three hours, two glasses of champagne, and one hot stone massage later…I finally understood why people book spa days! IT IS MAGNIFICENT! I left the spa that afternoon feeling like an even better and more relaxed version of myself which allow for the ultimate vacation experience in Marco Island.

I am excited to bring you everything I learned from my first spa day at The Spa by JW including a few tips for your visit!

WHAT treatment did I receive at The Spa by JW…and do I recommend it?

I received the 50 minute Marco Island Custom Massage. I added on the hot-stone treatment and I am so happy I did! Daphne did a really great job alleviating pressure points using the hot stones along with therapeutic aroma of calming essential oils. I highly recommend this spa service followed by a dip in the mineral pool overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

WHEN is a good time to book an appointment to enjoy The Spa by JW?

The Spa by JW is open seven days a week from 7am-6pm, although hours may vary by season. I booked my hot stone massage on a Tuesday afternoon. Overall the spa was not extremely crowded and I actually had some of the amenities completely to myself which was absolutely fantastic!

If possible, I recommend booking a mid-week appointment ahead of your trip if you are looking for lower crowd levels. Allow yourself 45 minutes after or before (or both) to enjoy the on-site amenities.

WHY is The Spa by JW worth visiting?

THE AMENITIES! I have to admit, I was super impressed with the amount of amenities at The Spa by JW. Amenities at the spa include a private fitness center, fitness classes, a hot and cold soaking tub, steam room, locker room, lounge room, outdoor terrace seating overlooking the ocean, showers and more!

I highly recommend spending at least a few hours in order to really enjoy in all of the amenities. My favorite amenity had to the mineral pool overlooking the ocean. Tucked away between the palms, this hot-tub sized pool was extremely relaxing…and I even had the entire mineral pool to myself which was just a dream.

Thank you to The Spa by JW for hosting my very first solo spa afternoon and allowing me to re-discover how to unwind on vacation!
