Have the long lines at the mall and the endless hours baking gingerbread men got you feeling a little stressed? Looking for a perfect holiday gift for that special someone? The spas at Borgata are offering a variety of specially-priced December specials that are the ideal pick-me-up for the winter blues, or a great surprise for that special person on your gift list.
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?
