At Seattle’s only Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa, Scott Studstill leads a team of 30 massage therapists, estheticians, nail technicians and spa attendants. As the Director of Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle he oversees the menu of services, from massages and facials to the Hotel’s summer spa program at the outdoor infinity pool terrace.
Studstill was most recently the Spa Manager at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, where he managed an award-winning 16-room tropical retreat that celebrates the restorative power of nature.
A graduate of Florida State University, Studstill began his spa career at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes as a supervisor before he joined Four Seasons Resort Maui in 2012 as the Assistant Spa Manager. In May 2014, he was promoted to Spa Manager, overseeing the daily operations of one of the largest spas in the company.
“I get my creativity and inspiration from the people I work with, so I’m fortunate to work with a great team here,” said Studstill. “I’m excited about all the ideas we have to take The Spa to the next level.”
In addition to seasonal spa treatments, Studstill is happy to bring his Maui spa experience to Seattle by elevating the popular spa-related programs by the outdoor infinity pool, including resort-inspired mini spa treatments and pop-ups with retail vendors.
Located on the third floor of Four Seasons Hotel Seattle, The Spa features extra luxuries, from a relaxation lounge and couple's suite with views of Elliott Bay to the eucalyptus steam and sleek changing rooms. “It’s such an urban oasis that I see people instantly relax the moment they step into the spa,” notes Studstill.
“People are working more now than they ever have before,” adds Studstill. “Because of this, people are more stressed and it is taking a toll on their bodies. I’m so excited to be a part of their time away from stress and especially love it when I see friends and family come to the Spa to reconnect and recharge together.”
Taking his own advice, Studstill loves spending time with family and friends, trying new restaurants and visiting new places. Being new to the Pacific Northwest, he certainly won’t be out of options anytime soon.
