St Julien Spa Decadent Delightful Day Spa

Experience the deep penetrating energy of a hot stone massage or the tranquilizing pleasure of a Swedish massage with its signature long strokes.  Skilled massage therapists are on hand (appointment recommended) at Boulder’s Five Star St Julien Spa and Hotel.   Prepare for pleasurable pampering as you cross the threshold and enter the spa.

Swank Downtown Hotel

The St Julien is modern and stylish.  It is a popular spot for Boulder weddings with iconic views that will stun guests.  The rooms are nice — not overly amazing, but definitely benefiting from an over the top location.   Parking is very convenient with a City of Boulder underground lot under the hotel. 

The St Julien Spa is the icing on the cake for this sharp, destination hotel.  Guests are pampered with his and hers facilities.  For men, you’ll find a comfortable changing area, well equipped showers and a fine bath area for shaving/dressing.  The jewel in the private men’s area is a fantastic steam room.   Good sized, with loads of steam really heating the space. Just outside the door, frozen washcloths in iced water and cool cucumber flavored water.

Though a small thing, I found the towels to be incredibly soft at the St Julien Spa and the slippers were more comfortable than average.  Little things like this make a wonderful difference.

Guests can also use the St Julien Hotel’s swimming pool, workout facility and hot tub.  The tub is spacious and offers easy access with steps and a railing.  The swimming pool is not overly immense, but is certainly inviting with sleek lines and water almost level with the deck.  A wall of windows at one end of the swim space offers plenty of natural light and a glimpse of the Flatirons.

Swedish Massage At St Julien Spa

I opted for the swedish massage.  I highly recommend the therapist Laura Y.   Simply put: great massage.  She asked where to focus as we started and then double checked that the pressure was not too intense.  Though the St Julien Spa caters to hotel guests, local Boulder folks will be delighted there are good massage therapists onsite. 

Before and after the massage, relax in the lounge.  Low level lighting, comfortable couches and a tea station with snacks and more of that cucumber flavored water.   Everything at the St Julien Spa exudes cleanliness and a glow – as though just cleaned, shined, puffed or placed to create a wonderful inviting ambiance.

Indulge Yourself

The spa also offers all manner of day spa options such as nails, hair, facials and scrubs.  This is a state of the art facility with a relaxing tranquility to it.  As you enter the spa area of the hotel, the short corridor serves to say – you are entering the relaxation zone.    Indulge with a signature wrap.  Treat yourself

Staying At The St Julien Hotel And Spa

Are nestled in the heart of Boulder, walking distance to everything.  The iconic Boulder Bike Path is just across the street, rent a bicycle at nearby University Bicycles or take advantage of B-Cycle.  Pearl Street Mall is a block away.  Great dining at the hotel with Jill’s and frequently there is live music in the hotel.  Two steps out the front door will bring you to Boulder Chop House, Brasserie 1010 and The Med, three wonderful dining spots.
