A new spa and fitness center is coming to downtown San Diego that is not just open to hotel guests, it’s open for memberships as well. AquaVie Spa & Wellness Center is open now to guests of the Westgate Hotel and patrons who wish to become members. The contemporary full-service Spa at AquaVie will open within the center in February 2017.

The $14 million, four level, 40,000 square foot facility is located at 239 Broadway Avenue, adjacent to the Westgate Hotel. The new facility features more than 200 units of the latest fitness equipment, exclusive amenities and services to its members and hotel guests.

Designed by Hollander Design Group, AquaVie was designed to reflect an urban amenity for health and serenity. Signature details include a silver travertine and glass stairway, custom and contemporary furnishings and cabinetry and a three-story water wall serving as the center of each level of AquaVie.

The first level of the facility hosts a reception area where a wellness concierge greets and welcomes members and guests. On both sides of the main level two modern, expansive studios feature strength training provided by IRONGRIP and Technogym. 

The second floor is home to a spacious, full-service locker room and refreshing area. A ladies locker room includes a steam room, large dry sauna, glass enclosed showers, hydrotherapy circuits for pain relief and treatments, along with a number of vanity stations. The men’s locker room features a hot tub, steam room and sauna. Each space includes individual upscale lockers and inset TVS with full length mirrors for when you need a break from pumping iron.

On the third level, guests will find stations dedicated to physical fitness training with a wide array of cardio equipment, including the Excite line by Technogym and Precor’s Experience Series 880. For strength training, there’s Technogym’s Element. Two extensive group exercise studios are also within the third floor to host daily fitness and wellness classes. Bonus: personal and group training equipment will be provided by both Technogym and IRONGRIP.

The fourth floor is a 15,000 square foot rooftop, featuring a Junior Olympic-sized lap pool, a hot tub and a lounge area. The outdoor setting is well-suited for members who want to work out, unwind and just relax in the San Diego sunshine. The rooftop houses three private studios and wellness equipment, along with a 1/10th mile running track. A living wall serves as the rooftops centerpiece, connecting guests and members with serenity and the natural environment.

If you’re not into working out, The Spa at AquaVie will offer five treatment rooms beginning February 2017. Services of the spa will include body therapy, massages, skin care, waxing and nail care options provided by trained experts. A lounge area will feature organic tea and spa water, and all skin care, body care and wellness products will also be available to purchase.

AquaVie is now accepting members during the grand opening phase. For information, contact Emily Talbot, director of spa and wellness services at [email protected] or 619-557-3615.
