Three Luxurious Spa Treatments for Two

Everything Spa

Although claiming many awards for being one of the top vacation destinations in Minnesota for families, Grand View Lodge Spa and Golf Resort is also the perfect place for couples to retreat. From lodging and dining to a long relaxing day at the spa and spending time together – Nisswa’s favorite resort will ensure you both have a luxurious time.


There are a variety of package offerings that are perfect for couples. While you’re there, be sure to book a couples’ service at Glacial Waters Spa. Break away from the hustle and bustle, get away from the youngsters, and know that you can take in a full day of relaxation without interrupting the intimate mood.

In a private room, you and your loved one can embark on a spa treatment. The Deep Tissue Massage, Grand Relaxation Massage, and Hungarian Herbal Mud Wrap are the spa’s suggested spa treatments for couples to pamper fully. Each of these massages works on releasing tension and induce full body relaxation.


The Deep Tissue Massage
Includes all of the relaxing features of the Grand Relaxation Massage, but designed for the person who needs deeper, more intense work. This type of spa massage focuses on releasing and relaxing areas of chronic tension. Using a variety of muscle release techniques, your therapist will target tense and painful areas to bring relief.

Grand Relaxation Massage
The spa’s signature massage – the Grand Relaxation Massage is designed to induce full body relaxation. Complimented with hot towels and a sensory journey with your choice of aromatherapy, this massage relieves muscle tension and soothes your mind and body.

Hungarian Herbal Mud Wrap
A unique wrap that blends a Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment and Sour Cherry Masque, this treatment tones and revitalizes your skin as it cleanses your body of toxins and free radicals. During the wrap, a cleanse, tone and hydration are performed on the face, followed by a balancing foot massage. A final hydration with a soothing Stone Crop Lotion is applied to the body.

The spa’s soft, pleasing-to-the-touch robes are always a guest favorite. After your one-hour massage or wrap, sit together in the spa’s Relaxation Room in your robe. The relaxing sounds will help soothe your senses. Enjoy light refreshments and snacks. Before or after your treatment, guests are free to utilize the sauna and steam room; however, they are not co-ed.

Of course, guests are welcome to purchase any of their suggested products in the retail shop to use in the comfort of their cabin later. Your massage therapist can recommend the best massage oils for a pleasant and relaxing massage.

Don’t let your relaxation and romance end there! What sets the resort apart from a typical hotel stay, is their seven dining venues that are on the property.

The resort suggests dining at one of their more intimate locations Cru Restaurant and Wine Bar or CHAR Craft Steaks.


After a day at the spa, dinner, and a few cocktails, end the evening taking a walk down the beautifully lit iconic staircase making way down to the firepits. Complimentary to all guests are fixings and s’ mores. Watch the sunset at the beach on Gull Lake and take in every last bit of your vacation together.

Last but not least, enjoy the comfort of your cabin or room. Most cabins offer picturesque views of the lake or wildlife. Cozy up with a glass of your selection of wine which you can purchase on the property and let the night be a self-indulging and luxurious one.
