For the third year in a row, The Gasparilla Inn Spa was named one of the Top Hotel Spas - this time No. 11 in the nation - by Cond Nast Traveler's 2013 Readers' Spa Poll.
Additionally, The James Griffith Salon was also recently recognized as one of the nation's premier salons in Salon Today's yearly top 200 honors.
The Gasparilla Inn Spa employs unique treatments such as the bamboo fusion massage, which uses heated bamboo sticks to soothe joints and release muscle tension; and the lava and glacial shell mini body massage that combines hot lava-filled tiger-striped clam shells with a Swedish massage technique.

The Turkish sea salt scrub renews skin with an invigorating exfoliation of rich thermal mineral salts, leaving it smoother, softer and more vibrant.
During the seasonal honey melt ritual, a moisturizing honey masque is gently massaged in the skin, using warm stones, with the purpose of hydrating and strengthening skin.
"We could not be more thrilled that The Inn's Spa and James Griffith Salon continue to be honored by esteemed publications like Cond Nast Traveler and Salon Today," said Jack Damioli, president and general manager of the resort.
