During Spa Week, held April 16 to 22, many spas in the U.S. and Canada will offer full-service treatments for $50.
Taxpayers have until Tuesday, April 17, to file their 2011 returns. But frazzled, budget-minded number-crunchers — and their clients — seeking a little ‘me’ time can begin taking advantage of money-saving spa treatments on Monday.
During Spa Week, held April 16 to 22, hundreds of spas, yoga and Pilates studios, fitness centers and other health and wellness locations in the U.S. and Canada will offer up to three full-service spa treatments for $50. Many spas located at hotel and resorts are also offering these specials.
“April is a stressful time of year and Spa Week affords vacationing consumers the opportunity to experience some much needed relaxation in top ranked spas without shelling out hundreds of dollars,” said Spa Week spokesperson Dina Sanchez.
Of the 30 Red Door Spas participating in Spa Week, six are located at hotels and resorts, including Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, the Westin LaPaloma Resort in Tucson and the Willard Intercontinental Washington D.C. The trio of $50 treatments is the same at each: a 50-minute stress-melter body treatment, a facial or a magnolia pedicure.
Seven of the 12 participating Exhale locations are in hotels or resorts, including the Hotel Palomar in Dallas, the Gansevoort Park Avenue in New York City and the Fairmont Miramar Hotel + Bungalows in Santa Monica, Calif. At most branches, guests can choose a facial peel, a five-pack of mind/body classes or a special manicure/pedicure package for their Spa Week $50 treatment.
At the Elle Spa at the Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach, the Spa Week treatment choices include a shampoo, cut and blow-dry or a 50-minute manicure/pedicure. And, at the Mokara Spa at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colo., the $50 Spa Week treatment options include a 50-minute massage, a 50-minute mango ginger sugar scrub or a 50-minute facial with a nutrient-rich mask.
“If you’re booking a stay at the hotel, you can often get discounts on spa services,” said Kelly Richert, Mokara Spa director, “but the $50 Spa Week treatments are definitely a great deal. The Swedish massage and the sugar scrub treatment we’re offering are usually $100 services and the facial is usually $115.”
And don’t get too stressed out if you miss Spa Week this time around. Spa Week has been a biannual event since 2005. So if your accountant says you can’t afford a $50 spa treatment this time around, save your pennies for fall.
