Common Questions About Our Spa

We are delighted you have chosen to enjoy a treatment at our award-winning spa. Please read through some of the most common questions below, and feel free to contact us at (877) 877-2664 if you have any other questions not answered here.

What are your hours?

The Spa at Mohonk Mountain House is open from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. daily. The Fitness Center and Pool Facilities are open from 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. daily.

Do I need to make an appointment at the spa?

We recommend that you schedule spa services and private instruction prior to arrival in order to better secure a treatment time most convenient to you. Reservations are subject to availability and must be guaranteed by a credit card. To speak with one of our spa coordinators, please call (877) 877-2664. Within the Mountain House, please dial extension 2751 from any House phone. Spa and fitness rates are subject to change; please call to confirm our current rates. Please mention your request for a male or female practitioner at the time that you schedule your appointment.

Should I arrive early for my spa appointment?

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your service to ensure that we start on time. Late arrival will, unfortunately, preclude receiving the full time for your treatment.

In addition, arriving early to use the facilities such as the steam, sauna, and mineral pool will warm muscles and increase the effectiveness of massage treatments.

What if I need to cancel my spa appointment?

Please call 24 hours in advance if you need to change or cancel your appointment, otherwise you will be charged for the service. Appointments missed without the 24-hour cancellation notice will result in a 100% charge for reserved services.

Can I book a spa appointment for my child?

Spa appointments are available for persons age 16 years and older. Please note that New York State law requires persons under 18 years of age to have a parent or adult guardian present during all massage and body treatments. Salon appointments specifically designed for younger clients, ages 6-15 years, are based on manicures and pedicures in the Salon only. Persons under the age of 16 are not allowed in the Spa changing rooms, saunas, steam rooms, verandas, solarium, or mineral pool. The fitness level of the spa features a cardiovascular and strength-training center for those ages 16 years and older. Persons under 16 years of age must have a parent or adult guardian present at all times while in the indoor heated swimming pool.

Do I need to tip my service provider?
