The Spa at Château Élan

A recent $3 million renovation to celebrate the resort’s 20th anniversary sets the stage for luxurious relaxation at the Spa at Château Élan in Braselton, Georgia.

By Hope S. Philbrick

Château Élan Winery & Resort recently completed a renovation of its spa, making over all 14 guest suites, the restaurant, two spa libraries, gift shop, front desk and lobby as well as 35 treatment rooms, relaxation areas and couples’ rooms.

Each suite is designed to offer a soothing, romantic experience and includes new upholstered beds with a rolled head and footboard appointed with nail head trim. Renovated bathrooms feature a rich color palette of watery blues and peaceful greens with tranquil glass mosaics. Choose from a two-person pedestal Airjet tub or a couples’ Raindance waterfall shower each with an invigorating hand shower.

The extensive Spa menu offers massage and wellness therapies, specialized body treatments, hydrotherapy, skin or nail care options and more. Also relax in the hot tub, sauna and steam room. Feast on healthy fare at the Fleur de Lis restaurant while wearing robe and slippers. Or slip into workout gear and join a yoga, cardio or resistance training class.

The design of the 35,000-square-foot European-style Spa incorporates soothing colors and restful patterns for a vibe that’s as calming as a tropical pool of water.

You could plan a day trip to the Spa at Château Élan and get an amazing hot stone massage or a cleansing antioxidant winery facial—but then you’d have to leave. So book a night. Or two. And savor the experience for as long as you can.
