In its annual list of Top 100 Spas, Spas of America has named Skana —Turning Stone’s premier spa featuring Native American cultural elements— the No. 1 spa in New York State and the No. 2 spa in all of North America. 

Turning Stone Resort Casino announced today that Spas of America, the largest spa and wellness travel website, named Skana as the No. 1 spa in New York State and the No. 2 spa in all of North America.

With its unique Native American theme and culturally inspired treatment, Skana has been recognized at the top spa in the state for four consecutive years.

“Skana at Turning Stone is a beautiful and unique property, and one of the most popular spas with our targeted spa and wellness travel audience,” said Spas of America president Craig Oliver. “In additional to all the excitement and entertainment the resort offers, Skanacontinues to be a crown jewel, offering a relaxing, rewarding and an authentic spa and wellness experience.”

In addition to this latest honor from Spas of America, Skana was also awarded the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Award.
