Borgata Spa Blog - Beauty Tips & Events
As we move into the holiday season at Borgata Spas, our spa specialists are continuing to use the flavors and scents of the season to give you the ultimate in relaxations and rejuvenation. And it the case of our December spa specials, that means another month with one of the healthiest fruits on the planet (and a local staple in South Jersey as well).
But one of the great things about Thanksgiving dinner is that many of the basic dishes at the traditional feast are on the list – most notably cranberries (as in sauce) and pumpkin (as in pie).
Cranberries are filled with disease fighting antioxidants and Vitamin C. They’re actually considered one of the healthiest fruits you can eat. Pumpkins are also filled with anti-oxidants and Vitamin C, but also are a good source of Vitamin A and E.
OK, so at this point, you may be asking what does this have to do with the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s special spa treatments for November? Cranberries and pumpkins?
On Saturday, November 5, Savor Borgata guests were treated to an indulgent morning of pampering and healthy brunch bites poolside at Immersion Spa. The spa’s expert estheticians and staff were on hand to teach attendees how to make skin and body care products from common household ingredients, including cucumbers, egg whites, and even beer. In addition to all of the scrubs and masks, guests were treated to a spread of colorful fruit and bubbly brunch cocktails. Check out recipes and photos!
Not in food, mind you, but in our October line-up of spa specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Once again our spa experts have put together a group of special treatments utilizing natural ingredients, vitamins, organic botanicals and minerals.
And while outside fall is a season of endings, at Borgata’s spas it’s a season of both rejuvenation and relaxation.
And while you’re here, you might want to check out Borgata’s great dining options. Our Borgata chefs are pretty good at fall flavors as well.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s spa specials for October:
Here’s a fun fact. Every time you spend a relaxing hour or two at Borgata’s spa’s getting one of our signature massages, you’re engaging in something that people have been doing for more than 4,300 years.
Really, the first indication of massages was found in the Tomb of Akmanthor (also known as “The Tomb of the Physician”) in Saqqara, Egypt which has a depiction of two men getting foot massages. The tomb dates to 2,330 BC.
By 700 BC massage was a pretty standard practice in Asian medicine, so the point is it’s been around a long time. Couple that with the ancient Greeks love of baths, and you get the history of spas…
Is there anything better than a dip in a pool with a little refreshing cocktail is waiting for you by a lounge chair? Lucky enough for Borgata guests, they have multiple options if they want to cool down poolside: We offer a wide variety of watering holes, each with their own unique style and environment. Plus, the huge new Borgata Beer Garden & Outdoor Pool just opened, offering even more opportunities to catch some rays. Here’s a look at some of our favorite places to soak up the summer while OUT at Borgata.
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?
The Water Club Hotel at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has always been a unique feature of our resort, offering up a singularly different type of Atlantic City experience just steps away from the casino, nightlife and dining at Borgata.
The 43-story, $400 million hotel features 800 guestrooms and suites; Immersion, a two-story spa on the 32nd floor, 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space; three Residences modeled after chic, urban lofts; five heated pools – indoor and outdoor, each offering a distinct individuality; and boutique retail shops including Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli and Fixation.
At The Water Club, the emphasis is on relaxation and getting away from it all. So in a very non-stressful way, Borgata is offering another of our new hotel package deals that takes in all that The Water Club has to offer.
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.
Here in Atlantic City, summer is the season to relax and party. There’s no better place to start than Borgata’s Spas.

Sure, the spring weather is upon us, but the damage from the cold, dry winter still has a major impact on skin, especially during these transitional months. However, there are some easy practices and simple tips that you can easily implement into your daily routine to help heal and prevent dryness, aging, and damage.
