Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort Debuts New Tierra Luna Spa

Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort – which recently emerged from a property-wide transformation in May – unveils the highly anticipated opening of its Tierra Luna Spa. With a name that honors both the earth below and the moon above, the new spa features 12 soothing treatment rooms and a range of curated therapies inspired by the surrounding Sonoran Desert. From innovative treatments, such as the Float Dream Massage and Lucid Awakening, to cosmic offerings including an Alchemy Mud & Crystal Body Treatment featuring an onsite astrologist, Tierra Luna Spa adds a dynamic new dimension to the “only at the Biltmore” magic.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Piestewa Peak, Tierra Luna Spa embodies the divine connection between the desert and the cosmos. Timeless and free-spirited, with a ruggedly chic aesthetic, the holistic spa is reinventing the modern spa experience. The physical space has been designed to integrate seamlessly into its desert setting, for a sense of openness that connects strongly to the cosmos.

Debuting this fall, calm outdoor spaces have been created and will invite guests to reconnect with themselves to find a sense of grounding. Accented with earth tones and natural materials, the design captures the expansive warmth of the Sonoran landscape, while cacti, succulents, and desert flowers add texture and color to the sensory journey.

Incorporating a holistic approach, the treatment menu at Tierra Luna Spa reflects the core pillars of Desert Botanicals, Cosmic Connection, and Dynamic Recovery. Indigenous mud, desert herbs, and native scents are utilized throughout the spa menu to pay tribute to the resort’s desert surroundings. The menu consists of Signature Massage + Body Experiences, Skin Care, Soaking Experiences, Cosmic Experiences, and Finishing Touches. Guests may experience treatments à la carte or book a special Journey or Ritual package inclusive of multiple thematic treatments for a fully immersive spa experience. Each therapy is customized to the guest’s needs, offering grounding yet transcendent experiences.

While the menu will evolve, sample standout therapies include:

  • Chakra & Sound Massage (Signature Massage + Body Experiences)
    • Full body, aromatic massage with seven essential oil blends that have been attuned to each of the seven chakras' vibrational energies, and incorporate the sound of ‘ohm,’ which vibrates at the same frequency found throughout everything in nature to release tension, alleviate muscular aches and pains and increase energy levels.
  • Luminous Quartz Cryo & Thermal Facial (Skin Care)
    • Linked to the heart chakra and commonly referred to as the ‘love stone,’ the Rose Quartz crystalline energy promotes a sense of compassion, love, and peace. Coupled with the spa’s lymphatic drainage massage, a cyclical balance of warm and cool cryotherapy tools and signature desert extracts tone and detoxify the skin for ultimate rejuvenation.
  • Circadian Bath Ritual (Soaking Experiences)
    • A magnesium soak before bed will put the whole body into a state of relaxation, helping cells manage the cycle of day and night and relieving aching muscles.
  • Astrology Reading (Cosmic Experiences)
    • Detailed explanation of individual’s natal birth chart, delving into personality, personal strengths and challenges, family, career, health, and relationships before looking at how the planets in the sky are influencing the chart now, and into the future.
  • Alchemy Mud & Crystal Wrap (Signature Rituals)
    • Uses Indigenous mud to detoxify and soften skin, improve circulation and generally ease life’s aches and pains. The treatment is paired with essential oils and a crystal which is specifically chosen to enhance the energy of each individual. The offering has an optional reading with an expert astrologer who blends birth charts and cosmic forces into personal revelations for each individual.

Additional Signature Massage + Body Experience treatments include the Float Dream Massage, Quartz Dream Massage, and Lucid Awakening. Skincare treatments are comprised of the Forever

Young Antiaging Facial, Tierra Grounding Facial, and the HydraFacial while soaking experiences offer Goddess Bath Ritual and an Intention Bathing Ritual.

The spa offers cosmic experiences by way of a mud and crystal bar, an onsite astrologist, blending birth charts and cosmic forces into personal revelations. For finishing touches, the spa offers a full array of blowouts, manicures, and pedicures.
