While our serene coastal landscape offers many ways to escape the hustle of the daily grind, sometimes you need to kick the relaxation levels up to eleven. From massages to skin treatments, and every spa service you could possibly want in between, here are our favorite spas in Virginia Beach to help you hit the reset button.
Flowering Almond Spa at Founders Inn
Located in Inland Virginia Beach, the Flowering Almond Spa is part of the timeless Founders Inn and Spa, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. Using time-honored rejuvenation techniques from the Orient, Flowering Almond’s all-encompassing spa leaves no stone unturned in helping you to fully relax. Cleanse and rebalance your body with the Deep Forest Detox, which begins with a soothing 80-minute Hot Stone Massage with detoxifying oil infused with notes of Balsam, Fir, Pine, Juniper and laced with Sicilian Bergamot. After your message, give your hard-working hands a break with the Flowering Almond Manicure Indulgence, which comes with a relaxing hand massage with anti-aging lotion, nourishing Jojoba oil, and Vitamin E, in addition to the traditional manicure experience.
Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E.
It’s rumored that Virginia Beach’s pristine surroundings and serene spot at the meeting point of the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean led legendary mystic Edgar Cayce to choose this as the home for his wellness center, the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), a hub for all things holistic living. Select one of four half-day spa packages at the A.R.E. Health Center & Spa. Choose from restorative therapies such as facial, massage, foot reflexology, or the Cayce Cleanse. Try their signature Cayce/Reilly Massage, which blends Swedish, osteopathic, and naturopathic massage techniques to help stimulate the body and help you relax.
SeaHill Spa at the Cavalier Hotel
As part of the newly-restored Cavalier Hotel, SeaHill Spa delivers a luxurious spa escape at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Offering lavish serenity with nine massage treatment rooms, a full-service hair and nail salon, deep soaking tubs, and a pink Himalayan Salt-walled sauna, the menu of options at this 6200-square foot paradise is extensive. Don’t miss out on one of our favorite couples offerings, the Bourbon Tea Nutria Body Wrap. This two-hour package infuses bourbon from The Cavalier’s new on-site distillery, Tarnished Truth Distilling, into your soaking tub for truly unique and relaxing experience. A dry brushing precedes the wrap and soak, followed by an 80-minute side-by-side massage.
