Mandara Spa (Cherokee)

The Mandara Spa is located on the reservation of the eastern band of the Cherokee people, whose presence in North Carolina spans 11,000 years.  If you're visiting the area for the casino, the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, or the popular outdoor drama called 'Unto These Hills,' be sure to also reserve a treatment at the spa.  

 Once you reach the front desk of the spa, you'll be led to an internal elevator, which leads to tranquility and bliss.  Your only real responsibility once you exit the elevator is to select the scent that you want diffused in your treatment room.  The current options include: Release, Replenish, Enliven, and Embrace.  I selected the Embrace scent, which has a heady rosewood base.  I wasn't disappointed with it at all.  
Staff will then lead you to an area where you can remove your makeup at the vanity tables, shower, and get changed into a thick and luxurious robe that's provided by the spa.  You will also receive a pair of slippers.  Should you decide to shower at the spa, body wash, lotion, shampoo, razors, and even a toothbrush are gratis.  There is a separate area such as this for men.
 Next, move on into the Relaxation Lounge.  Yes, please! Have a stress releasing soak then relax in one of the hot stone chairs.  The heated chairs feel good and the way that they are designed gives relief to the lower back.  Feel free to spend as much time as you like in the Relaxation Lounge.  You get use of it for the entire day of your treatment. 

If you move further into the Relaxation Lounge, you'll discover another area that offers a variety of infused spa waters, juices, assorted hot teas, and nibbles (all complimentary).  The area also offers a selection of magazines to browse through.  There's a fireplace too, which is lit during cooler months.
  When it's time for your scheduled treatment(s), staff will escort you to your treatment room.  The staff at Mandara is fantastic.  They're efficient and strive to give guests an unforgettable and pleasurable experience.  Stephanie A. spoiled me and I want to benefit from her expertise again. 
  She has healing hands, a lovely smile, and a kind spirit.     
Once your scheduled treatment(s) are over, you can return to the Relaxation Lounge or sit on the spa's private patio to read a book, SLEEP, have a snack, or simply listen to the sound of the creek while enjoying caressing breezes.  You'll find comfy chaise lounges, egg pods, and greenery on the patio.
Mandara has locations in several spots around the globe.  You'll find them in Dubai, the Maldives, Cairo, London, Tokyo, Malaysia, Hawaii, etc.  The Cherokee North Carolina location is lovely and the service is top notch.  I'm already looking forward to my next treatment.  By the way, this is not a sponsored post.  Just sharing a good thing with you.  Have a wonderful week.  Go forth knowing that God is mighty and able.

Hi Liberty Belle, My better half would love visiting this spa! She goes nuts just over a facial so this luxury would be over the top. As for me, I guess I'm just a guy from the stone ages. No massages, no salons, no hot tubs, no saunas, etc. FYI, my wife would avoid this spa as there is a casino of my weaknesses (just the slots) that she doesn't care for. You sure look like you enjoyed this experience! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
Wow this is a nice place to relax Liberty!!

I'll try it if one ever opens up near me.
Oh, that looks heavenly! It's so decadent to be pampered (probably because it's so infrequent!).
