Tenaya Stone Spa, a new boutique retreat inspired by nature and the indigenous cultures of California, opens September 16, 2021, at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, PEOPLE can confirm. Just steps away from Disney California Adventure Park, the spa offers a tranquil escape in the heart of the popular hotel. "The spa name Tenaya (pronounced ten-eye-a) can be interpreted as 'to dream' in the indigenous culture of the Yosemite Valley," Dawn Jackson, a Native American cultural advisor for Disney and an Imagineer on the Story Development team, explained of the project's inspiration. "For modern-day travelers seeking a respite to dream and recharge, the spa provides an opportunity to relax into a dream-like state, a reverie of being lost in one's thoughts, regaining balance within themselves," she added.

An actual Tenaya stone serves as the focal point, allowing guests to pause and set intentions. The stone was gifted from a Miwok Elder and her family, the descendants of Chief Tenaya in Yosemite Valley.

There are four directions, four colors, four elements, four points of wellness. These bring balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit," said Katrina Mosher, art director of Walt Disney Imagineering, in a statement. The Tenaya Stone Spa is now taking advanced reservations for Disneyland Resort hotel guests. It will be open to non-hotel guests at a later date.
