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:
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?
Here’s a look at the Spa, Salon and Barbershop specials for September and October at Borgata:
You have to love the marketing genius that came up with the Christmas in July concept. Here it is like 101 degrees outside, and people are buying holiday lights, little Santa ornaments, Christmas hams, special spa treatments at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
What? You didn’t know about the special Christmas in July Flash Sale going on at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa?
Yes, it’s a holiday bonanza and there’s still time to take advantage as you can book a special session at our spas through July 31—the session itself can be scheduled anytime Monday through Thursday through September 30. It’s everything you love about Christmas without the cold weather
Here’s what’s on the Flash sale menu:
Christmas in July Spa Flash Sale
Christmas in July Body Wrap: $110/50 minutes
Allow your body to drink in our fully hydrating wrap that takes you to the point of complete relaxation. We’ll prepare your journey with a full body dry brush exfoliation, massage your scalp while you’re wrapped in the scents of cardamom and spice, and then luxuriate your body with vanilla hydrating lotion.
Flash is one of those great words in the English language. It’s just a really neat way to say fast.
After all, the DC comics hero The Flash wouldn’t sound as cool if his name was “That Fast Guy in the Red Suit.” We flash smiles, flash back to the past, flash forward and flash into view.
And sometimes, here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we have Flash Sales.
Right now, Borgata’s spas are having a flash sale, which means you have to move quickly—you know, in a flash. Book any of these spa specials at Spa Immersion and Spa Toccare between now and May 22. Appointments are available from May 26 to June 25. Call 609.317.7555 for reservations.
Here’s the specials with not a flash in the pan among them.
FLASH SALE SPECIALS
Go Coconuts for Massage ($110/50 min)
Indulge yourself in the scent of summer – coconut will fill the air as hydration engulfs your skin. Using real coconut, we’ll exfoliate your back at the end of this relaxing massage. Treatment includes complimentary Epicuren Kukui Coconut travel size lotion (retail value $15).
When it comes to months of the year, there’s no month quite like May.
Unless you live in the southern hemisphere, where May is like November. But we don’t.
Nope, here in Atlantic City, May is the ultimate spring month marching itself towards Memorial Day and another glorious summer season at the Jersey Shore. Not that anyone is all that anxious to get through May, of course.
May is the month of May Day, the Kentucky Derby and the Indy 500. It’s also a month of flowers, warm breezes (with any luck) and rejuvenation.
Yes, there’s that word again—rejuvenation—which means May spa specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
This month our relaxation experts give you a May Day Get Away, European style facials and pedicures using apple blossoms and kumquats. Look, folks who can get kumquats into a pedicure are absolutely experts.
So in this very merry month, why not take a much-deserved break, brace yourself for the upcoming summer season and basically indulge yourself with a Borgata spa treatment?
I mean really, it’s not like it’s November.
May Spa, Salon & Barbershop Promotions
One of the great things about scheduling Borgata Spa Experience for the first week of spring in March is how nicely it slipped into April, the first true month of spring.
And that means another round of monthly spa specials at Borgata’s spas and salons.
Because let’s face it, we really need a spring revitalization. After 100 feet of snow, sub-arctic wind chills and a winter that just would not quit, it’s time to think spring.
Our April spa specials are all about rejuvenation, revitalization and removing the effects of those harsh winds and biting temperatures. Spring is eternal, after all, when we come out of hibernation (so to speak) get a massage, get a facial, moisturize up and get ready for the harsh sun, blistering heat and dry winds of summer … uhm, well, you know what we mean (April’s nice anyway).
Fortunately, Borgata Spas are always here for you, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.
And really, who deserves it more than you?
Here’s a look at Borgata’s April Spa, Salon & Barbershop Promotions:
Believe it or not, this winter of 2015 is scheduled to end. On March 20, spring begins, whether or not there’s still snow on the ground or the temperature is stuck in the teens.
And when spring comes, it will finally be time to take a well-deserved break and wash away all the stress and harshness of another winter—not to mention the effects of harsh dry winds, biting cold and all that street salt that’s in the air.
So exactly how do you go about that? Once again Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has the answer with our perfectly timed Borgata Spa Experience week from March 22 – 27.
It’s a week of specials and special events at Borgata’s spas Toccare and Immersion that has a little something for everyone.
First up, every day of the Borgata Spa Experience from 10am to 5pm will feature special skin analysis and body sampling demonstrations featuring the products and services offered at Borgata’s spas.
Each demonstration also offers up special discounts on spa services.
Check out the event schedule.
Borgata Spa Experience also features a list of specials and treatments starting from $85 at our spas as well as The Salon and The Barbershop.
At Borgata, we know how to welcome spring.
Here’s a look at the Borgata Spa Experience specials:
Chocolate may be the unofficial flavor of February as about a gazillion pounds of it are sold each Valentine’s Day, but what may surprise you is the unseen health effects the old fruit of the cocoa bean can give you.
To quote our buddies at Wikipedia, in general chocolate and cocoa is considered to be a rich source of antioxidants such as procyanidins and flavanoids, which may impart anti-aging properties. Chocolate and cocoa also contain a high level of flavonoids, specifically epicatechin, which may have beneficial cardiovascular effects on health.
Well’ our experts at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Toccare and Immersion spas knew (Not to mention The Salon and Barbershop). Just check out our spa specials for February.
There’s the Hot Chocolate Wrap with Marshmallows, a Cherries and Chocolate Facial and a Chocolate and Strawberries Pedicure, just to name a few.
Sounds delicious doesn’t it?
Of course, most people think chocolate’s main health effect is that if you eat a lot of it, you gain weight.
Eat it? Hey, we think way too far out of the box at Borgata’s spas to just leave it at that.
Here’s a look at the February Spa Specials at Borgata.
