Golden Door Opens Two Retail Kiosks
The kiosks feature a selection of luxe Golden Door items and spa gift certificates.
Golden Door, voted the #1 Destination Spa for 2015 by readers of Travel + Leisure Magazine, opened its first off-property retail locations at Westfield UTC in San Diego and one at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles. The product lines—skin care, artisan food and jewelry—all represent Golden Door’s values in their use of earth-friendly, natural ingredients. The kiosks feature a selection of luxe Golden Door items and spa gift certificates, all of which until now have been available only at the resort’s boutique and online. Also at the kiosks, cooking, beauty and jewelry demonstrations by Golden Door experts are scheduled into December. During September, kiosk visitors can enter a drawing to win a basket of Golden Door products valued at $500, with one basket awarded at each location.
«Going into the holiday season, shoppers will feel good knowing that each item purchased from Golden Door is a double gift,» says Kathy Van Ness, Golden Door General Manager and Chief Operating Officer. «Each product is first a distinctive gift for the recipient, and second a charitable contribution. In keeping with Golden Door’s philosophy of initiating positive change, we donate 100 percent of net profits to select local, national and international charitable organizations that benefit children.»
More than 50 years ago the spa’s founder created small batches of antioxidant preparations for guests, which later grew into a retail skin care line. Today’s updated formulations, for all skin types, contain all-natural, sustainable ingredients. Inspiration for the products’ anti-aging and moisturizing properties, botanical extracts and aromatherapy essential oils can be found throughout the resort’s gardens and orchards.
Each kiosk stocks two-dozen skin care products in a variety of sizes, colors and natural scents. Products for the face include a scrub, masque, eye cream, CC cream, cleanser, moisturizer, lip protector and lip color. Products for the body include bronzer, moisturizer, scrub, bath and shower gel, body butter, balm and soap. Other items to create a spa experience at home include bath salts, body brush, bath mitt and candles.
Golden Door’s culinary gardens and orchards, which are organically and bio-intensively farmed, provide healthy garden-to-table meals for guests. Golden Door Artisan Food items embody those same just-picked flavors and values with locally sourced ingredients, which are locally produced in small batches. Developed by Golden Door chefs, the products combine all-natural, vegan and gluten-free ingredients with hearty, satisfying flavors.
A collection of finely crafted jewelry in a wide range of styles includes Winged Messenger gem bead bracelets and traditional gem bead Mala bracelets, accentuated with a hanging Golden Door icon. Gold vermeil and white sapphires adorn Italian-crafted leather necklaces and bracelets. The Golden Door gemstone collection features hand-selected gemstones designed into earrings, yoga necklaces and bracelets. The gemstones represent different qualities: green peridot for clarity, golden citrine for prosperity, blue topaz for leadership and fiery carnelian for creativity.
