Wintergreen Resort Spa, Wintergreen Virgina

In Spa by LA Travel Magazine

The Spa at Wintergreen Resort, situated atop Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, capitalizes on autumn’s harvest to weave nurturing botanical extracts from yam and pumpkin enzymes into a trio of new fall spa treatments.

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.

The third fall treatment, 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.

The full-service Spa at Wintergreen allows guests access to the adjacent Aquatic & Fitness Center with indoor pool, workout equipment and outdoor Jacuzzis with mountain views.

Accommodations at Wintergreen Resort include 270 condominiums and homes, from studio suites to seven-bedroom houses, each offering a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living area, most with fireplaces and a balcony or deck.
