Pampering Yourself with Spa Deals

Yesterday, my seven-year-old asked me why there were no spas for kids. I was surprised by the question as I wasn't aware she even knew what went on in spas. I asked her why she'd want to go and she replied, with a world-weary roll of the eyes. "Mom, I could really use a good massage."

I know how she feels. So in honor of Trixie, I'm going to pass along three of the best deals I could find this week for spa getaways. Note that all prices are per person based on double occupancy (single rates are available, but higher):
  •  Tennessee Fitness Spa: The "Walk Into Winter" special, from Nov 14-Dec 4 lowers the rate to just $395 for a three-night stay, including one beauty treatment. Bookings must be for Wednesday to Saturday or Sunday through Wednesday stays. All packages at the Spa include meals, all fitness classes and a fitness assessment, so once you pay the initial amount you should be set. Leading up to this period are various types of 10% discounts, all listed at the website of the spa.
  • Spa at Grand Lake: That would be Grand Lake in Connecticut, where the discount on three day stays drops the total price to $479 per person.  All meals and fitness classes are included. This offer is available not through the spa's website, but through the popular SpaFinder site and it covers weekend stays through the end of October.
  • Green Valley Spa: Set in one of the most spectacular hiking areas of the United States (in St. George, Utah), this is not a cheap spa, though a discount of 35% a night does help matters, especially if you like beauty treatments (which are being discounted 25%). With the discount, you'll pay $277 a night through the end of the year. As in Tennessee, that rate includes all meals, all fitness classes and lectures on fitness and nutrition.

Now, I've got to go and give Trixie her needed massage!

  1. Most people want to head to the spa for the weekend. While some don’t have the time, most don’t have enough resources to do so.
