We stayed at Ten Thousand Waves on the way back from Lake Powell. After having slept in a tent while on the lake, the nice comfy beds, quiet rooms, massages and private hot tubs were a welcome relief to my arthritic body. I agree with some others about the communal hot tub which is clothing optional. Kinda yucky. Why is it that it's always the people who SHOULD be wearing swim suits who don't!!! The private hot tubs on the other hand are quite nice. Though in August, the cold plundge is not so cold. We said something about that to the staff and they said that it's the ambient temperature. Whatever. It wasn't cold.
We spend one night in New Moon, which was very nice. We later moved to Yado, which is the lowest end room in the complex. We would definitely choose a different room next time given the fact that there's only about a $40 difference in room rates from the low end to the high end. If you're spending $200+ a night for a room anyway, splurge!
We both enjoyed our massages. My husband splurged and had the four hands one. I just had a traditional one since that was only the third professional massage I've ever had. I enjoyed it thoroughly and am now convinced that I need to get one on a more regular basis...
