To simultaneously become Utah’s first Five-Star Spa within a year of expanding and enhancing our spa, is truly exhilarating. NORTHWIND has been a solid technology partner that plays a big part in our success. These accolades illustrate the staff’s unyielding dedication to provide guests uncompromising service of the highest caliber. Without our attentive staff this legacy would never have been realized.”
