A sampling of the hydrotherapy treatments at the new water-themed spas.

SPRUCE & CEDAR VITALITY BATH

Location: The Spa at The Coeur d’Alene Resort, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Time & Cost: 10 minutes, $25

One of five signature baths in the state-of-the-art TAG Signature FlowThru Tubs, this one relies on the fragrant scents of spruce and cedar, indigenous to the area and used through the centuries for their antiseptic and soothing qualities.

THE DANCING WATERS

Location: Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas

Time & Cost: 30 minutes, $90

This exfoliating treatment is performed under the Vichy. First, a light salt scrub is applied, and then “we’ve orchestrated a water dance, using the Vichy,” says spa director Jennifer Lynn, who adds, “This treatment is more about the water dance and less about the product.” It ends with the application of a light moisturizer.

SAND & FOAM VICHY TREATMENT

Location: Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas

Time & Cost: 50 minutes, $155

A creamy scrub is used to exfoliate the body in this traditional Vichy treatment, which also includes a scalp treatment using fragrant frangipani oil and a massage.

THE PAMPERING WILD ROSE CURE

Location: Allegria Spa at The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort, Beaver Creek, Colorado

Time & Cost: 135 minutes, $325

One of the most luxurious treatments on the menu, lavender compresses are used to soothe the nervous system before custom rose oil and a herbal wildflower body scrub is used to exfoliate the skin. It also includes a chamomile bath with fresh flower petals, followed by a full-body massage with a geranium-rose body butter. The experience ends with a calming wrap and a foot and scalp massage.
