February is the month of love -- so why not celebrate with a weekend away with your girlfriends? It’s sure to be fun and endless talk with some gossip mixed in. But it doesn’t end there. You can add in spa treatments, gourmet food, and drinks. Below are our top 5 destinations for a fun girls getaway!
Looking for a nearby getaway? Lansdowne has a spa getaway package that’s perfect for those who love to relax and be pampered. It includes luxurious overnight accommodations and a choice of two 50-minute total treatments per room at Spa Minerale. Being in wine country there are many wine inspired treatments that you can add to your stay. You can even experience the perfect pairing of coffee, chocolate, and red wine with the Cabernet and Cacao Cocoon by Stone Tower Winery. This decadent full body treatment is designed to revitalize and awaken dull skin.
Don't forget to take a winery tour with the gals and lucky for you there are lots of fun dining options on property, so drink up because you won't have to drive!
Living in the DMV we are lucky. The beautiful Chesapeake Bay is so close, especially when you don’t have the bridge beach traffic. One of my favorite places is St. Michaels. Think Maryland crabs and Chesapeake seafood. At the Inn at Perry Cabin, you get the bay views, are steps away from town, and can take advantage of its new foodie excursion with the Tastes of St. Michaels.
The package includes a one-category upgrade confirmed at the time of booking, a fresh seasonal breakfast for two in Stars daily, chef’s choice 4-course tasting menu and wine pairing for two ($160 maximum value per room), preferred access to resort activities, personal transportation to and from Lyon Distilling Company and Eastern Shore Brewing and a brewery complimentary tasting of six Inn at Perry Cabin Oysters, and a $50 resort credit per stay for use in the pub, and sparkling wine for two. (Woah! That is a lot!)
If you need a little exercise head to the fitness center or for pampering it’s the Linden Spa where chocolate facials are being offered over the Valentine's Day weekends, Of course, you’ll want to see the cute town and maybe visit the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
Spa'rty On is a day at The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg. When you have five or more friends and do any 50 or 60 minute treatment you’ll receive your own Spa’rty planner who can arrange add-ons such as your own fitness class and lunch. She’ll be in touch with you before your arrival to arrange everything. The Spa’rty On also gives you 15 percent off retail at the spa and a complimentary spa gift.
The luxury spa offers calm serene surroundings where you can escape the stress of the DMV’s work and traffic. You’ll be able to enjoy the steam room, signature shower, and whirlpools as well as the relaxation lounge.
Of course, you’ll want to stay overnight. There are many hotels in the area. The two that are steps from the spa are the ultra-luxurious Williamsburg Inn and the beautiful less pricey Williamsburg Lodge. If it isn’t freezing, make sure to have drinks and light fare at the new The Social Terrace.
New York screams, girlfriends getaway - shopping, theater, restaurants, and bars. It’s everything we girls love! Stay in a luxury hotel in the perfect location to enjoy all the fun New York has to offer. You’ll be living like a local on Park Avenue. The feel of the hotel is relaxed sophistication. The concierge can assist you with things like theater tickets or even get you a table at the hot new restaurants the locals can’t stop talking about.
And you can mix in a little R&R pampering with the hotel’s "Pampered on Park Avenue" offer. It includes guest accommodations, a 60 minute hot stone massage from Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa, a 60 minute facial at the spa, and two cocktails per stay in the Regency Bar and Grill or through in-room dining.
If it has been a bad couple of months for your love life, or lack of, and you need to get out of town, this might be just for you. The resort is inviting those not-so-enamored, anti-Valentine travelers to come for some “self-love” themed getaways. If you’re there on February 14, foodies and singles wanting to mix and mingle can head to the resort’s 3800 Ocean Lounge for a special “Love Bites” menu featuring fragrant, messy and delectable food and drink that romantic duos will eye with envy.
And from February to March 31 spa lovers will love Si Spa offerings – Waves of Beauty Massage (50-minutes), Waves of Beauty Love Mani/Pedi (80 minutes) and Beauty Love Rose Petal Facial (50 minutes) each for $99. Spa services include access to the spa facilities – steam room, heated marble beds, private whirlpool, and waterfall showers.
