The "Original" Golden Door. Located in a quiet valley in northern San Diego county, CA the Golden Door, known as the ‘gold standard’ of destination spas and a leader in the field since its founding in 1959 by spa visionary Deborah Szekely.
The philosophy of Golden Door is inspired by that of ancient Japanese Honjin inns, places where royal and affluent travelers could stop to rest, rejuvenating body and spirit at the hands of attentive servants before continuing on their journey. Each of the Golden Door spas shares this mission and philosophy. Aptly named, Golden Door was designed to serve as a portal to mental and physical well-being, and quickly set the gold standard for the entire industry. From the time this notably groundbreaking resort first introduced innovations such as herbal wraps, hydrotherapy treatments, joyous exercise, and imaginative health cuisine, destination spas have taken root all over the world, influenced by the profound vision of the founder of the original Golden Door, Deborah Szekely. Golden Door spas are private enclaves, designed to each fit seamlessly in to their individual environments. They are retreats of reflective and timeless serenity and beauty - a journey on a path to discover true tranquility and reach a "perfect balance" of mind, body and spirit.
