Shed Your Winter Blues at W'burg’s Finest Spas

Is it just us, or has this winter felt especially long? (Personally, we blame it on the fact that Christmas music starts in October.)

Winter comes with all sorts of icky side effects—dry skin, dull hair, and general lethargy and boredom.

Fortunately, King’s Creek Plantation is close to some of Williamsburg’s finest spas and beauty salons. There will never be a better time of year to steal an hour for yourself to get moisturized and revitalized!

Here are our very favorite spas in Williamsburg!

Williamsburg Salt Spa

Allergies. Asthma. Arthritis. Salt, it turns out, is good for what ails you. Stocked with about 15 tons of Polish and Himalayan salt, this curious little corner of the ‘Burg boasts one of the first salt caves in the U.S. A beautiful, whimsical microclimate rich in minerals keeps people coming back for more; patrons report improvements such boosted mood, clearer skin and relief from respiratory problems.

Our recommendation: A Hot Salt Rock Massage followed by a Salt Cave Therapy Session

Serenity Spa

People who visit this upscale and affordable spa rave about the relaxing atmosphere and knowledgeable, professional staff. If you happen to be expecting (yay, congrats!), get off those feet and give your aching muscles some attention with a signature Prenatal Massage. Serenity Spa specializes in areas like skin care, body treatments, manicures and pedicures. Their pedi menu, in fact, has some of the most luxurious menu of options you’ll ever see!

Our recommendation: A full-body sugar scrub

Beauty Therapy by Iza

The reviews for Beauty Therapy by Iza are fun to read. Phrases like “best ever” and “professional, affordable rejuvenation” are abundant, and they’re all talking about spa founder Iza, a licensed esthetician who is loved for her extensive knowledge, results-oriented techniques and kind, caring demeanor. She also has a menu of services customized for guys to treat razor burn, tense muscles, and revitalize skin tone.

Our recommendation: Back Facial Treatment

Think of these temples of health and beauty as the gateway to making the very most of what should always be a relaxing vacation. Few of us can shut out stress on command, but we can certainly get by with a little help from our massage therapists!

For an affordable weekend getaway, look no further than King’s Creek Plantation. We’re at the heart of a unique destination fit for any mood, season or budget!
