Today, West Baden continues to cater to discerning travelers and spa aficionados alike. Marble inlaid floors, deep chocolate cabinetry and hand-blown glass welcome guests to the destination spa. Professional therapists treat guests to an experience far beyond a traditional spa service. Indulgent experiences include relaxing massages, all natural facials, cleansing scrubs and more featuring specialized spa products by Babor, Matrix, Zents, Jack Black and Malibu Wellness.
