Entering The Spa at Club Northwest is like taking a luxury, mini-vacation to Europe and that's just what the spa staff wants.
"We wanted to create a space that when clients walk through the door, they are transported away for an hour or a full day," says Annette Draper, the spa's director.

The spa opened six years ago and has served over 13,000 clients with a 95 percent retention rate, an astonishing statistic in the industry. The lush décor of paneled walls, chandeliers and Mediterranean accents creates an elegant environment indicative of the pampering clients will receive. A full service spa and salon, The Spa at Club Northwest is also a medical spa, with a medical director and registered nurse, and also has the advantage of being inside a full-service athletic club. Spa clients are invited to use the club's steam, sauna and Jacuzzi rooms as an added amenity.
In addition to facials, massage, wraps, manicures and hairstyling, the spa offers a menu of medical aesthetic treatments including injectables, chemical peels and soon, laser treatments. One signature specialty of the spa is Synergie, a combination of technology for facials and cellulite treatment that stays booked over a month in advance.
"We deliver an extraordinary client experience," Draper says. "Our goal is to not just meet the expectations of our guests but to exceed them. Our professional staff is committed to responding to client needs and finding solutions for them."
