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.

I had an hours massage here and whilst it was painful at times because of tight muscles the therapist did a grand job releasing the tension. The place was lovely and very relaxing. I could have spent a lot longer here.

I had a pedicure and facial. The pedicure lady was nice but kept trying to up-sell me. She spent 50 minutes fiddling with my toe nails but nothing with the bottom of my feet. She said they only do that if you book a 90 minute pedicure. The facial was strange. I had my lip waxed and have been walking... More
