The sparkling new Omni Hotel has a special perk for us locals: The swanky, full-service Mokara Spa. And with pampering treatments, you also get pool and sauna access. Pedicure anyone?

Curiosity isn’t the only reason to set foot in our city’s towering new luxury hotel in March. The Omni Hotel’s 5,620 foot Mokara Spa promises to be a big draw for downtown office dwellers and suburbanites alike. “We want to have a high focus on residents with the spa,” says Spa Director Marisa DeVane. “While we’re still fine-tuning the details, we’re planning on having a full menu of massages, couple’s massages and body treatments; manicures, pedicures and facials featuring the Babor skincare line.”

These sybaritic services will all be delivered in serene and luxurious surroundings that include plenty of places to simply unwind and exhale. “We’ll have a relaxation lounge that will offer light, healthy refreshments,  infused spa waters, a dry sauna with cold cucumber-infused towels and a hydration mist bar to make it a true reviving experience,” says DeVane.

The spa will place an emphasis on customization.

At the hydration mist bar, for instance, guests will be able to choose from ingredients like cucumber, lavender or grapefruit.

If that’s not indulgent enough for a day trip or lunchtime escape, guests will also have access to the massive heated pool and sweeping pool deck for sunbathing and soaking. If it sounds like a vacation in an afternoon, that’s the goal. “We want to offer the best of both worlds,” says DeVane. “If local professionals want to come in on their lunch break for a quick service, they can come in, get their service, stop at our urban food hall and take lunch back to their desk. But if you have an afternoon or a day, we can turn that into an incredible escape.”
