Spa Chateau

Before leaving Houston on Friday, I scheduled an appointment for this morning at Spa Chateau, located just a few miles from Branson, at the luxurious Chateau on the Lake.

Spa Chateau, a 14,000-square-foot facility, is "a palace of pure indulgence." It reminds me of a Tuscan retreat, the kind of place one might go to enjoy exotic European therapies using the finest of lotions and potions.

The spa's two-story lobby features an amazing 30-foot-tall Swarovski crystal chandelier. It was beautiful and amazing, and it set the tone. Clearly, I was in for a very special experience.

After checking in, I was led to the woman's locker room and found it as well-appointed as the lobby. There were the usual restrooms, showers and dressing areas, but the locker room also featured a sauna, eucalyptus steam room and relaxation lounge offering beverages and light refreshments. Nearby were the co-ed whirlpool and indoor swimming pool. 

Spa Chateau offers a long list of signature facials, massages and body treatments, as well as hair cutting and styling, and manicure and pedicure services. The website ( provides full details, including prices.

Getting a facial is always a favored treat for me, so I settled on the 80-minute Pina Colada Facial. It stared with a comforting foot soak, followed by a customized, anti-aging facial that included eye and lip treatments, a relaxing neck and shoulder massage, enzyme peel and warm paraffin wrap for the hands. Some of the products smelled of pineapple and provided deep hydration. Combined, they diminished the fine lines and wrinkles and left my skin glowing! It was just what I wanted - and needed!
