If you haven’t paid a visit to the W Dallas in a few years, things will look a little different at the luxury hotel in Victory Park. Long gone are the days of Vegas-style Ghost Bar. Today, you’ll find Swoon, the Studio’s chic, artful aesthetic in the W residences and — as part of a $21 million makeover announced in 2019 — a new spa and wellness spot, Away, located on the 16th floor.

Formerly the Bliss Spa, the W Dallas is now home to the hotel chain’s signature spa, which completed renovations and a new design by Ink + Oro this August. A new director, Joseph Cummings (formerly of Hiatus, Rosewood Crescent, and Ritz Carlton-Dallas), will oversee day-to-day operations at the new downtown destination. In addition to facials and relaxing massage services, Away Spa will also focus on beauty. In the entry, a luxe area is dedicated to makeup application, hair styling, and mani-pedis — ideal for those transitioning from pool day to night out in the evolving Victory Park neighborhood.

Wellness, however, is the main focus at Away. Eight studio rooms, all designed with a soft color palette and local art, will house a variety of treatments, including a Detox or Fire & Ice Facial (treatments will use Comfort Zone and iS CLINICAL skincare), deep tissue massages, restorative body wraps, and hydrating peels.

Away Spa at W Dallas joins a collection of much-loved downtown spas, from the subterranean coolness of The Joule, the Adolphus Hotel’s soothing, sky-high spot, and The Thompson Hotel Dallas’ recently unveiled modern wellness retreat. (Dallas-Fort Worth also welcomed the brand new Well & Being spa at Frisco’s Westin Stonebriar this summer.)  With its semi-private spaces and duo studio rooms, Away may shape up to be the best downtown Dallas spa for group pampering.
