We will admit that Winter 2015 afforded many photo-worthy moments for us - Newport Harbor completely frozen, The Chanler snow-kissed and dazzling (if you have yet to partake in the frosty experience that became our Instagram account, please do so here).
However, we will also admit that winter indeed took its toll: ice skating to the car in the morning was a daily occurrence... as was shoveling our way out of the house. There were times we didn't think it would ever end, but we're glad to say it has (knock on wood). And now that it's over, we realize: we really need some rejuvenation. For this reason, we bring you 5 Newport County Spa experiences to reawaken your inner God or Goddess post winter 2015.
This rejuvenating experience combines the beautiful respite of world-renowned Castle Hill Inn with the 100% natural herbal skincare of award-winning Farmaesthetics. We recommend the 30 minute saltwater soak equipped with hand-harvested, essential oil and high mineral sea salts to create a detoxifying, skin softening deep tub soak. Utilizing the healing constituents of herbs and flowers (soothing lavender anyone?), the gentle circulation of the jet bath will relax tension while releasing the healing properties and subtle scents of pure essential oils and sea salts... we could actually fall asleep just writing about it.
