Good day spas in and around Anchorage AK?
December 22, 2012 5:54 AM   Subscribe

I'm spending next week with family in southcentral Alaska and I'd like to take my mom to a nice day spa in the area. I'm not having much luck getting a sense of what places are good from online searches. I'm basically looking for a great, warm atmosphere and quality massages. It doesn't have to be super-fancy (but that would ok too!), but it does need to be an enjoyable place--not run-down or unfriendly, if that makes sense. Are there any hidden gems that I should look into?

I live in Anchorage. Intuitions Day Spa is pretty great, as is Allure Day Spa. Warm and relaxing atmospheres, fantastic staff.

Places I've heard good things about yet not had any personal experience: the Ice Spa in the Sheraton hotel, Selah Salon in Wasilla.

Anchorage Press Picks of 2011 were Allure Day Spa and Ice Spa. Previous year Press Picks were Allure and Intuitions. So I'd say you can't get much better than those three.
