My husband and I booked a deep tissue couples massage the last day of our vacation. After 5 days of hiking the beautiful Yosemite Park, we thought it would be a perfect note to end our holiday. Well the spa did not disappoint! I started with relaxing myself in the steam room, then had a long delightful aromatic shower. My... More

I took my wife to Ascent Spa for her birthday. To say they were outstanding would not do them justice. They are beyond that! First, the spa treatments. My wife has been to many spas and she said that this one tops them all. The quality of care, products and service makes this spa a place to go. Second, what... More

My family and I have been spending Christmas at Tenaya Lodge for the last several years. Every year my husband and I treat each other to an hour massage at the Ascent Spa. The facility is beautiful and very serene. The locker room includes a sauna and steam room. We have had different people doing our massages each year but... More

The entire experience was absolutely exceptional. The only quibble I had was that I was not given much guidance about what to do and where to go. I figured I'd just strip and get in the sauna for a while. When I came out I found a cloth in a bucket of ice and grabbed one. I presume it was... More

A good friend and I booked the relaxation and deep tissue massages at this spa during the last week as hotel guests. We were warmly greeted, given comfy spa robes and sandals, and furnished with private lockers. The spa is immaculately clean, has both steam and sauna rooms, and a relaxation room with water and tea. It is painted in... More

The lodge is great. There are a multitude of dining options, all priced the way the lodge itself is priced and there is a deli onsite for small snacks. The golf cart rides to the cottages are great as is the room service. Location is great and would be better once Mariposa grove opens up.
