A "Green" Spa Destination - The Midwest's Only LEED Certified SpaFrom concept to construction, Crystal Spa has elevated the model for a "Green" spa to a new level. The 18,500 square-foot facility was designed and built to minimize its impact on the environment while maximizing its efficiency. The technologies and materials used in the process have enabled Crystal Spa to be the first LEED certified spa in the Midwest (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), and one of only six in the U.S.

Enjoy a broad array of restorative spa services and extensive fitness programs sure to enhance the health and wellness of your mind, body and spirit.

Crystal Spa is located - both literally and figuratively - at the heart of resort life. By connecting it to the existing Peak Indoor Pool and Fitness Center, the spa is an integral element in our core that adds vitality and density in the area that is designed as the hub. Programmatically, this multi-use building now becomes the center for well-being and fitness in all seasons and weather.

This $5.5 million addition positions Crystal as the Midwest's leading destination resort for the promotion of healthy lifestyles. An array of spa services, extensive fitness programming and healthy cuisine from Crystal's Peak Performance menu offers overnight guests and day spa visitors alike the opportunity to enhance their health and wellness while experiencing the abundant recreational opportunities offered by our beautiful northern Michigan surroundings.

To complement and capitalize on its beautiful natural setting, Crystal Spa was designed to meet exceptional standards. Words for guiding design principles include clean, green and pristine: a place that celebrates art, nature and the wellness of mind, body and spirit. Green building materials were used whenever possible, and the space has been designed and decorated to feel immaculate and simply elegant. A showcase for local artistry combined with architecture that brings in the beauty that surrounds us.
