Spa1905 Opens in Downtown Eureka Springs

On July 1, 2015, exactly 110 years from the opening of the “newest” hotel in Downtown Eureka Springs, that hotel, the 19JMM_5031-Edit05 Basin Park Hotel, will be adding another compelling amenity for its visitors.  On that Wednesday, Spa1905, a new Aveda Spa, Salon and Retail Center, will open on the second floor of the hotel with expanded services in a space previously occupied by Serenity Spa.

Designed as a center for relaxation in a busy downtown, Spa1905 will occupy most of the second level of the Basin Park Hotel and welcomes visitors with warm earth tones, sun deck and mountain backdrop. “Our hotel is historic in nature however our mission ensures we remain fresh and relevant to today’s consumer expectations. Spa1905, in expanding its services and joining the 1886 Crescent Hotel’s New Moon Spa as the only Aveda spas and salons in the greater Eureka Springs area is sure to meet those customer desires” stated Jack Moyer vice president and general manager of the Crescent and Basin Park Hotels.

Highlighting those expanded services will be a full menu of day spa services with focus on the Aveda TM Stress Fix and Chakra Balance massages.JMM_5150-Edit  Other services and amenities for Spa1905 will include an expansive Aveda retail center, sun deck with sauna and hot tub, a rain bar for a relaxing finish to mud wraps and exfoliations, and a continued emphasis on duet services for couples.

The new Aveda salon will be offering guests and local residents manicures, pedicures and hair styling.  However, the addition of the sought after Aveda product line will soon bring all Aveda salon services, each reflecting strict brand standards, to the hotel’s second floor including hair coloring.  The retail center will carry Aveda hair and skin products from opening.

“Managing Spa1905 will be Kimberly Roberts,” Moyer noted.  “Kim, who currently manages our New Moon Spa, has been promoted to the newly created post of Director of Spas, reflecting a core value of our hotels: Build the Individual.  Kim has been with our hotels for more than 15 years and is a preeminent expert in Aveda and its brand expectations.”  Daily operations will be supported by assistant director, Haley Franklin.2015-06-23 09.27.35
