Within the sacred surroundings of Zion Canyon at the entrance to Zion National Park, one finds a sanctuary like none other: the Spa at Cable Mountain Lodge. Once the home of the Zion Canyon Giant Screen Theatre, in 2017 the theatre closed and was remodeled into the spa and more luxury rooms for Cable Mountain Lodge.

Imagine hiking in Zion most of the day with your friends and now you’re seeking relief for tired muscles and joints. Why not consider the “backpacker recovery,” a 30-minute treatment in the “social suite.” Or how about a Pah Tempe mineral magnesium foot soak and scrub with a foot and leg massage. Maybe you yearn for a soothing, personalized facial.

Recently, St. George City Lifestyle connected with Barbara Puleo, who spoke on behalf of the spa management, and who was kind enough to answer questions about the facilities and the philosophy behind the spa's operations.

SGCL: How do you ensure the Spa at Cable Mountain offers the best possible experience to clients?

The Spa: We seek to hire only highly qualified and professional therapists who have a passion for creating the most therapeutic treatments for all our guests. All our therapists are required to complete specific training unique to the Spa at Cable Mountain Lodge. This ensures each guest receives the attention and care they deserve for an exceptional spa experience.

SGCL: What do you do to ensure the spa is constantly evolving and keeping up with current trends?

The Spa: Our spa management team is always looking for the newest and best technology in wellness by attending spa conventions and continuing education classes. We have the luxury of having an on-staff trainer who is continuously working to improve our current treatments, as well as creating new treatments based on the newest trends.

SGCL: What do you believe is the most important factor to consider when choosing a spa?

The Spa: The spa industry has always been a part of the “wellness” experience. It’s only in more recent years that people are beginning to recognize how important massage and other spa services are to one’s overall well-being. Giving yourself the gift of relaxation can affect every system in the body, including boosting the immune system, resetting the nervous system, relaxing the physical body and mental state. It’s a great reset, emotionally, mentally and spiritually that many are discovering—making it a part of their self-care.
