Checking In With Loma de Vida Spa Director Maggy Dunphy

Maggy reveals the one spa treatment you can’t miss

We had the pleasure of catching up with Maggy Dunphy, the director of the acclaimed Loma de Vida Spa at La Cantera Resort & Spa. Below, she shares what she loves most about her job, the one spa treatment you can’t miss, and how she likes to spend her downtime in San Antonio.

What makes Loma de Vida Spa so special, and different from others? 
Our primary focus is on providing spaces for people to disconnect in order to reconnect with themselves, their family and their friends. Our goal is to meet people where they are and provide a place to celebrate, heal, bond, pamper or simply to just be.

What treatments are you most proud of? 
I am really proud of the whole spa menu – the spa menu tells a story of who we are.  We have made several revisions since we opened based on requests from our guests and input from our providers. But, if you made me pick one, it would be Absolute Texas. It’s a two-hour signature ritual that we cultivated and designed with local partners. We even developed the honey drizzle specifically for the treatment.

In few words, how would you describe your spa’s philosophy?
It would be our tag line:  At Loma de Vida, we encourage you to breathe deeply, see clearly – and smile from the inside out. 

San Antonio’s a fun town. What do you like to do in your down time? 
I love driving out to further into Hill Country and mountain biking and running. Also love curling up to a good book, enjoying Texas Ciders, and going to church.
