The Spa at Wintergreen Resort introduces three fall spa treatments

By on December 1, 2013

I’ve just returned from the spectacular Wintergreen Resort, an 11,000-acre four-season resort located in the Blue Ridge Mountains southwest of Charlottesville, VA. Wintergreen is a one-of-a-kind resort community that boasts nearly 270 condominiums and homes ranging from basic studio suites to luxurious seven-bedroom houses. Guests enjoy 45 holes of championship golf; snow skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing with ultra modern snow making capabilities; an award-winning tennis program and of course a relaxing nature-inspired full-service spa.

Now The Spa at Wintergreen Resort, situated atop Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, is capitalizing on autumn’s harvest to weave nurturing botanical extracts from yam and pumpkin enzymes into a trio of new fall spa treatments. Make a full day out of your spa visit which includes access to the adjacent Aquatic & Fitness Center with indoor pool, workout equipment and outdoor Jacuzzis with mountain views. The spa relaxation area features two walls of windows through which guests can observe the stunning natural setting that surrounds the resort.

The Pumpkin Chai Sugar Scrub exfoliates and replenishes skin and is followed by a vichy shower that rinses away stress and prepares skin to receive and absorb an application of hydrating oil. The treatment finishes with warm stones placed on the back to increase circulation and ease muscle aches. The 50-minute service is priced at $115 on weekends and $105 midweek.

Autumn Harvest Facial and Wrap is a nourishing 25-minute facial that applies yam and pumpkin enzyme peel, combined with a 25-minute hydrating full-body oil wrap. The treatment is perfect preparation for the cold months ahead. The 50-minute service is priced at $120 on weekends and $110 midweek.

Harvest Manicure provides nails with a UV Gel Signature Manicure and incorporates a hand exfoliation treatment with nourishing apple and cinnamon oils. Clients enjoy a relaxing hand and arm massage while sipping on locally made apple cider. As an added bonus, there is no drying time after application with this manicure and it can last up to 14 days without chipping! The service is 80 minutes and priced at $70 on weekends and $65 midweek.

Stay tuned for a complete review of my visit to Wintergreen Resort and The Spa at Wintergreen Resort.
