My husband and I were staying at the Tenaya Lodge and decided to have messages. There is a women's and a men's section which I prefer. Each side has a relaxation room, a sauna, and a steam room. My husband had a traditional message which he loved and I had a custom message that included a combination of Swedish and a leg and foot message. It was great to be able to customize exactly what I wanted. We would definitely go back.

This is a very good spa you will have access while at the hotel to use the sauna and restrooms. Had a deep tissue for one hour and it was great, my wife enjoyed too

Marna and I won a 90 minute spa treatment for each of us in a drawing at the Los Angeles Travel Show. Our treatments were on a Sunday morning so we practically had the entire facility to ourselves. I went early and took advantage of the fitness center. After working out I availed myself of both the steam room and the dry sauna. I chose a signature deep tissue massage and Marna chose the hot stone massage. After the treatments we both went back to our respective spa facilities where we avialed ourselves of the spa facilites once again. We both had excellent massage threapists and we both agreed that we felt more relaxed than we had in a long time. Compared to other high end spas I feel the treatments are reasonably priced and would recommend Ascent's treatments and staff to anyone.

While staying 4 nights at the Tenaya Lodge and visiting Yosemite National Park I decided to treat myself to an hour massage at the Ascent Spa. I sure needed it after all the hiking in the park as well as the 4 days previously in San Francisco. From the moment I walked in it was heavenly! The locker area was very private as well as quite large. It was serene and relaxing. The massage itself was just perfect to help me relax and get rid of some minor aches and pains. I wish I could have spent all day here! I highly recommend this spa.
