Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa Goes to the Dogs

Pamper Your Pup With a Spa Visit
Giving new meaning to the idea of ruffing it, the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa (San Antonio) recently introduced a new canine program, which allows guests to bring along their four-legged friends. The hotel has designated a specific number of rooms with "barking lot" access as "Pups on Vacation" rooms. Guests will find treats, bowls, and doggie bags...

The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel Perks Up Pets with Yappy Hour

A monthly gathering of pups and owners raises money for charity.
OK, so I am the first to admit this headline isn’t particularly spa-inspired. But animals make people happy, and happiness is an important aspect of wellness. And I’m a giant animal lover who believes in bringing pets to social events (see the photo of my own party animal, Winson, at a recent Halloween party). As such, I thought that the...

Gurney's in Montauk Introduces a Spring Wellness Retreat

An Editor Celebrates Another Year With a Visit to Gurney's
This past weekend, I celebrated my birthday at Gurney's Inn Resort Spa & Conference Center (Montauk, NY). As one of the country's only thalassotherapy spas, it offers a host of nourishing sea water treatments. While there, I experienced the Marine Kur Therapy ($265, 90 minutes), which involved a gentle exfoliation, a seawater hydrotherapy massage, a mineral-rich seaweed body wrap, and...

Shibui Spa Opens Its Doors to Non-Hotel Guests

Manhattanies can now enjoy Robert DeNiro’s chic hotel spa.
A few years ago, I was luckly enough to spend the night at Robert DeNiro’s uber-cool Greenwich Hotel to experience Shibui Spa . I wrote a story on this cool subterranean retreat for the June 2009 issue and have fond memories of a fabulous treatment performed by Thuyen D. Nguyen. Since the hotel is a pretty exclusive NYC hot spot,...

Spa L'Auberge Offers Spring Break for Spa-Goers

Guests get discounted treatements at this popular California spa this Spring.
My best friend from childhood lives in San Diego, so I make it out there a couple of times a year to visit. One of our favorite things to do is treat ourselves to spa services at Spa L'Auberge, which is in the coastal village of Del Mar overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Whether we pop in for a quick manicure...

Marathon Specials Give Runners Another Reason to Celebrate

Discover How Some Spas Are Rewarding Runners Who Go the Distance
Although it has been several years since I ran the ING New York City Marathon , I can't help but think that I'll some day run another. The experience was such a positive one that I'd love to repeat it. Needless to say, there were many highlights, the main one being when I crossed the finish line in tandem with...

Spas Catch Hunger Games Fever

The upcoming action film sparks ideas for inspired spa packages.
I am a huge fan of The Hunger Games triology by Suzanne Collins. I’ve read all three of the books…several times. Needless to say, I am so excited to see the movie when it comes out later this month. And by that I mean I may very well be one of those crazy people who camps out overnight to get...

Ocean House Introduces Wellness Weekends

Find Out How to Recharge Your Batteries in a Single Weekend.
While I've already shared my love of a tough boot camp , I also appreciate a great wellness weekend. Make the location a beautiful Victorian-era seaside resort and I'm sold. That's what spa-goers can look forward to at the Ocean House (Watch Hill, RI) next month and throughout the year. The resort is launching its signature Wellness Weekends (starting at...

Aquae Sulis Spa Helps Guests Get over the Midweek Hump

This Vegas Spa offers "Wine Down Wednesdays."
The only reason I have to look forward to Wednesdays is the fact that "Glee" is on. Other than that, I don't particularly care for the day, as it just sits that smack in the middle of the week and doesn’t really have much to offer. But that's not true anymore for visitors to Aquae Sulis Spa at the JW...
