Nestled in the lake region of the Pocono Mountains, the Lodge at Woodloch is widely recognized as one of the country’s most luxurious destination spas. Guests are pampered from the moment they enter as they come upon three large Chakra Bowls, designed to restore your sense of calm, peace and mental clarity.
Safety is first and foremost at the Lodge which has committed to the Pocono Promise and American Hotel & Lodging Association’s Safe Stay program to ensure they are adhering to industry standards and community safety. One can’t help but notice the constant cleaning by the staff, along with the wellness classes and other activities that are all conducted according to social distancing guidelines.
A subtle sophistication permeates the Lodge, as everything from elegant accommodations to gourmet dining exudes an atmosphere of first class travel that one expects from such an exquisite property. With a decor highlighted by earth tones, along with massive windows that bring nature inside, the Lodge is the idyllic setting for a rejuvenation of the mind and body.
The spa relaxation area recently received a full facelift in order to add a luxurious yet relaxing feel to the men’s and women’s retreats. The goal for the project was to keep in tune with the architecture of the building with a touch of tradition, but stepping up the rustic elegance with a modern twist paying special attention to the details including soft crème white paneling, tongue and groove wainscoting and ceiling detailing. The men’s and women’s sanctuaries feature furniture that takes cues from another century, and the arrangement is lush and lounge-like.
Guests can choose from a non-stop array of personal enrichment and physical activities suited to sooth both the mind and body. Join in a relaxation based, whimsical Zendoodle art class where you can explore your fun, creative side drawing pattern based, organized doodles. TRX is a form of suspension training that uses body weight exercises to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. Classes like Gong With the Wind, Blissed Out Gong Bath, Gong Chi and Chakra Meditation with Singing Bowls will allow a peaceful exploration of the practice and benefits.
No visit to the Lodge is complete without one of their signature spa treatments. A Spa Concierge will personalize an itinerary specific to your needs and desires. All told, 27 treatment rooms are available for customized face and body treatments, along with private shower and changing rooms, separate men’s and women’s saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and private men’s and women’s fireplace lounges. A Warming Winter Body Polish features the invigorating scent of vanilla blended with hints of smoked cedar and cardamom that lifts the spirits while a thorough exfoliation and shea butter application leave the skin soft and glowing.
Exceptional cuisine is a highlight of your stay as Executive Chef Josh Tomson embodies the culinary philosophy that food not only fuels bodies but ignites passions and nourishes minds. He and his skilled team hand select naturally raised meats and fish along with organic, locally grown vegetables. With three kitchen gardens on the property, guests are assured that fresh, natural flavors are prominent in each delectable meal. Elevated among the tree tops with glimpses of the glistening private lake, TREE Restaurant and Bar offers a diverse menu that is anything but the ordinary spa cuisine. Richly decadent desserts complete your dinner. Cooking demonstrations are offered along with wine and chocolate pairings.
The Lodge at Woodloch is a sanctuary for the senses. Whether relaxing in the co-ed Whisper Lounge, enjoying the Aqua Garden’s Hydromassage WaterWalls or activity pool with floor to ceiling windows surrounded by nature, you can choose to be as active or relaxed as you wish. And with the extra safety measures now in place, the Lodge provides the perfect respite for guests seeking a day, weekend or week of pampering.
