Sunset Magazine Names Spa of the Rockies as a Travel Awards Finalist

As we mentioned in our previous blog post, we were thrilled to learn Glenwood Hot Springs Pool was selected as one of four finalists for Sunset magazine’s first-ever 2015 Travel Awards. Imagine our elation upon finding out that Spa of the Rockies was also named as a finalist in the category of Best Wellness Destination! (cue the happy dance!) 

Jeremy Gilley, director of sales for Glenwood Hot Springs and Spa of the Rockies summed it up this way, “We are thrilled, privileged and a little overwhelmed to be chosen by Sunset as a finalist for the 2015 Travel Awards in not just one but two categories, Best Hotel Pool and Best Wellness Destination. Making the final four cut is a tremendous tribute to our historic mineral hot springs property and our award-winning spa. We’re also honored to be in the company of other contenders who, like us, place a high value on achieving superior guest experience.” 

Spa of the Rockies is indeed in prestigious company; the three other contenders in the category of Best Wellness Destination include the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., Vera Via in Carlsbad, Calif., and Waldorf-Astoria Spa at The Boulders in Carefree, Ariz. 

Whether or not Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and the Spa of the Rockies are selected by Sunset as the top destinations in their category, we’ll still be doing our happy dance. After all, it’s not every day that a magazine which reaches 5 million readers every month chooses you as a finalist in two categories!! No matter the outcome, we’re counting this as a win! Sunset will announce the official winners in its June issue.
