BEAVER CREEK, Colo. -- The spa at Hyatt Regency Beaver Creek Resort & Spa here is celebrating its first anniversary. The spa facility, which was previously named the Total Beauty Centre, underwent a $5 million renovation and reopened last July 11 as the Allegria Spa. According to a spokeswoman for the resort, the reopening of the spa has been a "complete success" and business to Allegria has grown "tremendously" in the year the spa has been open.

The spa at the Hyatt Regency Beaver Creek. "Renovations included the removal of 20 guest rooms and conversion of the space into spa facilities. "We chose to build a new spa in the resort to improve the guest experience at the Hyatt and in Beaver Creek," said Gaye Steinke, general manager of the Allegria Spa.

"We spent a lot of time, energy and money to create a peaceful and soothing venue." The 20,000-square-foot spa and fitness facility was designed using the ancient Oriental decorating philosophy of feng shui. The philosophy considers humans and their environment as well as the placement of objects in a specific place.

The facility features 20 treatment rooms offering a selection of traditional and alternative treatments such as massages, hydrotherapy, wraps, scrubs and facials as well as an assortment of specialized treatments with the mountain environment in mind.

Also included is a fitness center featuring new Cybex and Precor equipment; personal training programs; exercise classes; a full-service hair and nail salon, and locker rooms with steam rooms, plunge pools and private whirlpools.

Allegria offers mind-renewal programs as well as pottery, painting, floral arranging, astrology charting and aura soma classes.

Patina, the resort's fine dining establishment, offers menu items that are low in calories and fat content.
