Broken Sound Club in Florida gets new US$7m "moonstone" inspired spa facility

by Aoife Dowling | 10 May 2013

Broken Sound Club, a luxury Platinum Club in Boca Raton, Florida, US has unveiled a US$7m (5.4m euro,£4.5m)free-standing spa and fitness centre.

The 13,100sq ft (1,217sq m) Moonstone, The Spa at Broken Sound will be managed by American Leisure who are also responsible for the treatment concepts and protocols, product selection, and overseeing operations.

The spa, designed in warm natural tones, features six treatment rooms, plus a "Moonstone Suite" couples room, men's and women's locker rooms with showers, steamrooms, and whirlpools.

Its relaxation rooms, one for men and one for women, offer custom lounges, quiet lighting, and calming scents as well a range of beverages for guests prior to a treatment or service.

The diverse menu of services and treatments use cutting-edge esthetics equipment and natural products for women as well as a special "men's only" spa treatments and services menu that includes traditional barber services and manicure and pedicure options.

American Leisure's executive vice president, Maureen Fletcher Bankson said that it features its most unique spa menu to date. Treatment options range from the Moonstone Signature Facial and Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial to Instant Rejuvenate Restoring Treatments and Notox Botox.

There is a 2,200 sq ft (204sq m) salon with stylists, two hair blow dry bars, two princess rooms for private pampering, and manicure and pedicure treatments.

The spa draws inspiration from the nearly transparent moonstone, which represents inner growth and strength and has been used by healers for generations.

The use of moonstone gives a "reflective, calming energy, soothes stress and anxiety, strengthens intuition and brings balance and harmony for a greater flexibility and flow with life".

Bankson said: "It was a natural for us to name the spa 'Moonstone'; perfect for branding the facility as a place guests could find relief from stress and anxiety, a place of wellbeing, as these are the special properties of the Moonstone."

Moonstone, The Spa at Broken Sound is part of a Resort-style Tranquil Oasis On The Club Course Green with new poolscape features a sprawling free-form pool accented with a tropical style grotto, lush landscaping and waterfalls; a five-lane lap pool; kids' pool area and heated whirlpool.
