S unshine filters through oak and willow trees at Quail Lodge & Golf Club, casting shadows across stone pathways and sparkling off the resort's outdoor pool. At one end of that pool, three compact, light-filled cabanas house the property's yoga, cardio and strength-training facilities. The Quail Lodge Wellness Center opened in a nearby building late in the sum- mer of 2018, introducing a steam room that is complimentary to all resort guests along with three treatment venu es available by appointment. The new wellness center offers treatments for individuals or couples in 50- or 80-minute sessions. Massages are available in the spa or in a guest's room, and some can be customized with a choice of essential oil blends. Guests here will find a straightforward menu with just three classic mas- sage options: Swedish, aromatherapy and deep tissue. It's simplicity by design, explains Q uail Lodge D irector of Sales and M arketing C raig Barkdull. "M ost of our guests are not looking for extensive, traditional spa services. T hey're m ore interested in a quick m assage after a round of golf or a gam e of tennis," says Barkdull. Since com pleting m ajor renovations and reopening events nearly six years ago, Q uail Lodge has continued to update its facilities and program s to address guests' interests. Before opening the w ellness center, the resort unveiled the m otorsports-them ed W aypoint Bar & D eck and refurbished the prope rty's 18-hole R obert M uir G raves golf course that opened in 1964. "O ne of the exciting things about this property is that it's constantly evolving," Barkdull says. "Som ething big is happening every year."
