No question about it – it was a spectacular summer in Sun Valley. Chances are you spent (and are still spending) hours and hours outdoors enjoying this amazing place: hiking, biking, rafting, golfing, swinging a tennis racket, and so much more. With autumn in the air, though, now is the perfect time to focus on wellness and beauty at the Spa at Sun Valley and undo a...
With only about ten weeks to go until the spectacular new 20,000-square foot Spa at Sun Valley Resort opens in the newly re-imagined Sun Valley Lodge, it is time to start dreaming of the pampering to come. Last week, Sun Valley announced the arrival of Spa Director Tiffany Cameron who brings a wealth of experience and exciting plans for this signature space.
Sun Valley welcomes Tiffany Cameron as Spa Director for the resort’s new world class 20,000-foot-spa scheduled to open in June. Let the pampering begin!
During an interview in Sun Valley’s executive offices, Tiffany’s passion for her new job shone as bright as the spring sun that streamed through the windows. “This project is amazing! From the moment a guest walks in, they will know this is no ordinary spa,” Tiffany enthused. “The reception space is soaring and was designed to reflect and compliment Sun Valley’s unique and inspiring surroundings. This truly is a five-star destination facility. For me, the opportunity to open a spa of this caliber is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Tiffany brings a depth and breadth of experience to her new position. With 14 years in spa management, and ten as a director, Tiffany understands what it takes to create a unique and exceptional spa experience. Most recently, she served as spa director of the four-diamond Zermatt Resort and Spa in Utah where she developed the menu and oversaw daily operations. She has also been spa director at Sundance Mountain Resort and the Grand Summit Health Club & Spa at The Canyons Resort, both also in Utah.
But Tiffany loves the challenge of something brand new. “I love the excitement and possibilities of this opening,” she explained. “When a spa is running well that is a great feeling of accomplishment, but I am having so much fun helping to shape this unbelievable, cutting edge spa. From choosing product lines with an emphasis on organic, plant-based, natural ingredients that will speak to the mountain culture and our guests, to working with exceptional therapists and aestheticians who will make the guest experience second to none, to simply watching the final touches come together in this carefully imagined space, every day is an adventure.”
From the soaring, warm reception space, to the 15 treatment rooms, state-of-the-art fitness facility and yoga room and gorgeous locker rooms, The Spa at Sun Valley Resort will encourage wellness and beauty for everyone
Tiffany began her career as a massage therapist, something she feels is important in her understanding of the guest, as well as the therapist, perspective. “I literally have hands-on experience in a massage room,” she explained, “so our talented therapists know that I understand their needs and respect their opinions and suggestions.”
The Spa at Sun Valley Resort will offer 15 treatment rooms offering a full complement of massage services, skin care for men and women, body treatments, even acupuncture. In addition, guests, both local and those staying at the Resort, will enjoy a fitness center featuring state-of-the-art equipment, as well as a yoga studio, steam and sauna rooms and much more.
“Wait until you see the locker rooms!” Tiffany said. “They are gorgeous and set the tone for the entire space.” There will be a fireplace to welcome guests, soaring views of Bald Mountain are framed by enormous windows and wood floors and lockers are consistent with that special Sun Valley feel.
This amazing new facility will anchor the fully remodeled and re-imagined Sun Valley Lodge, welcoming guests and locals alike to a spa experience unlike any other
Though the spa menu and product lines are now being finalized (stay tuned to this blog for detailed information to come), Tiffany’s flawless skin and polished appearance may be the best advertisement for her vision for The Spa. And her vision is broad and inclusive. “The spa world is fascinating because products and treatments are always changing and developing,” Tiffany explained. “We are going to bring the top new products and possibilities to our guests. And I want this Spa to be part of everyone’s life – from guests visiting Sun Valley for a weekend or a week to locals. We will have manicures and pedicures, a full hair salon, couples rooms, all kinds of specials, memorable experiences for bridal parties – you name it. The Spa will really be the flagship of the Resort.”
“Tiffany is a wonderful addition to our team and we are very pleased to bring a spa director of her caliber to Sun Valley,” said Tim Silva, Vice President and General Manager of Sun Valley Resort. “Her expertise in the destination spa market is exactly what we need to make our vision of The Spa at Sun Valley Resort a reality.”
“I am so happy to be here,” Tiffany said. “This is the best job in the world!”
We are happy Tiffany is here, too, and cannot wait to see the new spa and the completely remodeled and renovated Sun Valley Lodge, scheduled to open in June 2015. Sun Valley welcomes Utah-native Tiffany, her husband David Jacobsen and her two daughters to the community.
