We love spring for so many things. The return of the warm sun, the green leaves, the soft breeze, the very fragrance of the season.
Fragrance? Now that’s something the award-winning Spas at Borgata know about. Along with the very best in massages, relaxation and rejuvenation, our spa treatments tap into the very fragrances that infuse your body with the essence of the eternal spring – strong, reborn and vital.
Pretty artsy stuff huh?
This is the time of year when we start thinking about summer. It may be some weeks away, but we still have summer on the mind as we plan trips, beach days, outdoor activities and just all around fun in the sun.
You know – summer stuff.

Before we get into the April Spa Specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, here’s some helpful definitions of some of the things we’re empathizing this month at Borgata Spas.
Chi – Your life force or energy flow and a fundamental principle in Chinese medicine.
Bioflavnoids – A large class of antioxidants. They are compounds abundant in the pulp and rinds of citrus fruits and other foods containing vitamin C, such as soybeans and root vegetables.
Kerastase – A French international luxury haircare brand, headquartered in Paris.
Kumquat – A fruit, kind of like an orange.
Borgata spa specials – When Borgata spa personnel use their expertise and the finest products available to provide you with an amazing and relaxing rejuvenation experience.
We just wanted to clear some of that up before you peruse our Spa Specials for April, where once again we’ve tapped the best natural ingredients to provide you with the ultimate spa experience at Borgata Spas.
We don’t mean to get technical, we just kind of love the wide range of spa options we get to bring to you. You’ll love it too – promise.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s April Spa Specials:
March is a time of renewal and famed for the whole coming in like a lion and leaving like a lamb thing.
More importantly, spring arrives and the world re-blooms with life, energy and vitality.
Sounds like a spa pitch doesn’t it? You have to admit there’s no better season for a spa visit than spring and to welcome spring, there’s no better time to go to Borgata Spas than March.
We’ve got a host of spa specials to exfoliate, massage, hydrate, infuse and generally rejuvenate you after a long winter.
Because in March a promise is kept. No matter how long the winter, spring always follows.
Here’s a look at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s March spa specials.

In the fast-paced world of Borgata Spas, few things are as hotly anticipated as the madcap, zany frenzy that is another Borgata Spa Experience—with our latest extravaganza scheduled for March 13 – March 18.
Let yourself go with these high intensity thrill rides at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa such as:

Ok, you guessed it, we we’re just funning about the whole high intensity thing (thought you were on Borgata’s Nightlife blog huh?).
As we like to say when February rolls around, sweets for the sweet. And that’s the theme surrounding Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s February spa specials, as we present a host of relaxation treatments that employ chocolate, strawberries and brown sugar, among other sweets.
Now at this point, any Shakespearian scholars reading this are probably annoyed that we’re misquoting “sweets to the sweet” from Hamlet.
So yes, the line is from Hamlet and has nothing to do with candy and is in fact, used in a kind of depressing way within the play. (You can look it up if you must know.)
But we’re not about that here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and our spa treatments are designed to relax, re-invigorate and generally recharge you in the bleakness of winter. And, of course, with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we’ve tailored February’s specials to couples and romance.
We’ve also put a heavy emphasis on chocolate this month, which even Shakespeare couldn’t make depressing. That’s probably why there are no famous Shakespearian quotes about chocolate. (Well, that and the fact that chocolate as we know it hadn’t really taken hold in Europe during his life.)
So we’ll turn to a great 20th Century writer—Charles M. Schultz, the creator of Charlie Brown—for a quote that sums up our February specials:
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
Here’s a look at Borgata’s February Spa Specials:
2016 is here. And it’s going to be pretty amazing.
There was a time when just the thought of the year 2016 sounded pretty futuristic. We all expected to be driving flying cars and zapping up whole turkey dinners in our hydrators.
Instead, it’s another new year after a busy holiday season that’s left us with tired feet, knotted up shoulders and flaky skin. And we had to cook the turkey.
What’s so amazing about that? Well, Borgata’s Spas are what.
Our January Spa Specials offer the perfect start to the New Year and promise to massage, exfoliate and hydrate (see?, Futuristic) you back into shape.
This month we’re also offering a new hair ritual from Kerastase and euphoric foot runs. That’s right, euphoric.
Here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we’re ready to help you start the New Year in style, help you keep that resolution to take better care of yourself and let you enjoy some much-deserved pampering.
2016 is looking pretty amazing.
Here’s our January specials at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa:
Here’s an imaginary conversation we just made up.
“Hey, what should we get Dad?”
“How about a bathrobe so he won’t wander around on Christmas morning in that ugly plaid thing.”
“Yeah, since he lost the belt for that, it’s been kind of rough. But where can we get a nice one?”
“Well, ShopBorgata has a beautiful Waffle Terry Bath Robe.”
“It has a sheered waffle face with a looped terry lining and it comes with a belt. Not to mention that it’s 25 percent off as part of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s holiday sale at ShopBorgata.com.”
“That’s great. Problem solved. Does ShopBorgata have anything that would be good for Aunt Tilly?”
“Of course it does.”
Hey it could happen. But what can easily happen is visiting ShopBorgata.com and finding some great holiday gift ideas. And that 25 percent off holiday sale wasn’t imaginary, it’s real.
November is a month known for ushering the holiday season. That means sales, decorations and most of all, great fall flavors.
There’s ginger and spice, apple pie a la mode, and pumpkin, just to name a few autumnal faves. They’re so prevalent this time of year, they permeate the air and we feel them in our very skin.
So at this point, you may be wondering if you’re mistakenly reading Borgata’s dining blog.
Nope, this is Borgata’s Spa Blog because in November, fall spices take over even in our famed spa treatments and massages at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa. And there’s a reason that spices like ginger and pumpkin make us feel so revived at the holidays. Like many natural ingredients, each spice has its own health benefits.
Ginger, for example—long known as a treatment for nausea—also has a warming effect that stimulates circulation. Meanwhile, pumpkin helps neutralize free radicals and can help prevent wrinkling and vanilla bean is chock full of important minerals. Apples, of course, are about as healthy a fruit as you can find.
And you thought they just made great cookies and pies.
You may already have noticed that the sun is setting a little earlier in the evenings and the hot nights of summer are getting a little cooler. Believe it or not, autumn is here.
It’s time to recover from an active summer of harsh sun, salt water and all the running around we do on what are supposed to be restful vacations. And even if you’ve just plopped yourself down on a beach for the last month, any change of season is a good time for a little rejuvenation and pampering.
After all, it’s back to school, back to work, back to the grind in the fall. Why not prepare for with a reinvigorating treatment at one of Borgata’s Spas?
Our September and October Fall specials include innovative massage treatments, fabulous facials, euphoric pedicures and just the all-around pampering you’ve come to expect at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
And really, who deserves it more than you?
