SPA TRAVEL; Picasso and Pampering at The Spa at the Wynn Encore Hotel & Casino, Boston Harbour

Updated: Jul 29, 2022

If one is searching for absolute luxury in a strange location, then the Wynn Encore Boston Harbor & Casino is the place for you. Now, I say strange location because the Wynn Encore is not actually in Boston Harbour, but is up the Charles River north of Boston in Everett, Massechusetts. The hotel claims to be about 1/2 mile from the city centre, but the taxi ride seemed a lot further than that.

The Encore is a study in over-the-top luxury. The lobby has beautiful contemporary floral mosaic floors and is floral abundant. There is a double winding staircase, showcasing a massive Picasso ceramic sculpture pot. And of course there is a carousel made of flowers.

But where the lobby, rooms and suites, are studies in opulence, the Spa has a restrained elegance matching few that I have seen.

With 19,000 square feet, The Spa is a collection of tranquil treatment rooms and lounges. Yuzu and White Tea set the mood for the ultimate in spa relaxation and rejuvenation, and a menu that includes a wide range of five-star soothing treatments, including specialty massages, body treatments and facials.

I enjoyed the Good Luck Ritual, secretly hoping I would have the good fortune of someone else paying for my treatment! The prices are not for the faint of heart, but not far out of line for what you receive. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever experienced and the room temperature was perfect so that I was not too warm in the heated bed.

With a booked treatment, one has the use of the spa amenities for the day. Enjoy a waterfall shower, hot plunge, jacuzzi, dry sauna and eucalyptus steam. Lounge on the heated tile beds, or use one of the lounge rooms to extend that feeling of relaxation a little longer. The wet and dry areas of the spa are single-sex.

The Spa focuses on personal space, privacy and attentive service. Beautiful amenities harmonise with a collection of European art and bath the senses with comfort, light and understated splendour.

The Wynn Encore Boston Harbor & Casino is destination hotel. It is a bit removed from the city, but would be one heck of a fun night out-followed by a perfect day at the Spa.

The Spa is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.–8 p.m.; Friday through Sunday and holidays from 8 a.m.–8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m.–7 p.m.; Friday, Saturday, and holidays from 9 a.m.–7 p.m.

Please call (857) 770-3900 to make a reservation.

There is a water shuttle to transfer between Boston and the Wynn Encore. There is also valet and onsite parking. Please consult the hotel for transportation details.
