UPDATE: The new Hiatus location is open as of July 9, 2020. In honor of its opening, Hiatus will offer H-Circle Spa Membership pricing for all guests, which offers the $69 pricing for all Essential Services — Signature Massage, Tailor-Made Facial, One & Only Mani-Pedi, Body Glow, Body Wrap, or Acupuncture. Additionally, Hiatus will waive the enrollment fee for all guests who join H-Circle on their first visit. For more information, as well as their COVID-19 safety protocols, visit their website.


Frisco, prepare to relax, as the newest location of Dallas' beloved Hiatus Spa + Retreat is headed to The Star. The new 5,283-square-foot day spa will settle into the popular Cowboys' complex in late 2019.

It joins five other locations — the 12-year-old original spa in Dallas' Inwood Village, as well as Plano, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. New locations at The Hill in Dallas and in Fort Worth are expected to open soon.

The new Frisco spa will have 15 treatment rooms — including a couple’s suite and hydrotherapy — a nail therapy lounge with comfy zero-gravity chairs, a relaxation area, and separate men’s and women’s dressing rooms.

The space is being designed by Dallas-based Tracy Martin Taylor of eleven 11 DESIGN and Mark and Maurie Gray of M-Gray Architecture, and will feature original artwork by Texas artist Jan Heaton.

"Since the groundbreaking of The Star and as fans of great retail locations and the Cowboys, we have been watching the development and hoping to be a part," says Hiatus co-owner Sheila Garrison in a release. “We knew it was the perfect location for bringing Hiatus and our easy, accessible spa lifestyle to Frisco. The Star is a vibrant community with complementary co-tenants, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with each of them.”

Hiatus is known for its subscription program called H-Circle. H-Circle members choose one signature “Essential Service” each month, which can include the Signature Massage, Tailor-Made Facial, One & Only Mani-Pedi, Body Glow, or the Body Wrap. The membership is $69 per month and also includes special discounted pricing for members on all treatments and 10 percent off all retail products.

All 60-minute services at Hiatus include a purifying foot soak ritual and the signature hand and foot massage, along with a sensory journey and customized aromatherapy.

Premium services include The Yours Truly Massage ($190 for 80 minutes, $139 for H-Circle members); The Perfectionist Facial ($150 for 60 minutes, $109 for H-Circle members); and The Kindred Spirits couples massage ($120 for 60 minutes, $79 for H-Circle members); along with the acclaimed Monthly Retreat — a hybrid massage, scrub, and Vichy shower treatment created each month with seasonal ingredients and finished with a handcrafted cocktail ($195, $139 for H-Circle members).

Hiatus Spa + Retreat was founded in Dallas in 2007 by Garrison and Kristin Peabody, along with partner Bill Garrison. The brand has received numerous accolades, including the 2013 Innovate Award from the International Spa Association; and American Spa Magazine's Favorite Day Spa 2016.

The new Hiatus Spa + Retreat will be located at 6740 Winning Dr., Frisco.
