A Spa Guide to Atlantic City
We like to relax at Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa (Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, 777 Harrah’s Blvd., 609-441-5333), located just a few steps beyond The Pool inside Harrah’s. Step into one of 23 treatment rooms for sun-worshipper services like the Antioxidant Defense Facial, packed with vitamins and essential nutrients.
The Signature Seashell Massage at Vive Day Spa & Salon (Showboat Atlantic City, 801 Boardwalk, 609-343-4118) puts a nautical spin on hot stone treatments. Warmed, oiled cowrie and scallop shells are rubbed over your body, bringing relief to tense muscles (PICTURED).
During Spa Toccare’s (Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, One Borgata Way, 609-317-1000) invigorating Table Thai Massage, assisted yoga stretching techniques lengthen muscles and ease tension while your choice of heavenlysmelling lotions restore moisture to thirsty skin.
In the Buff
Baby-soft skin is just one treatment away thanks to Sea Spa at the Chelsea’s (the Chelsea, 111 S. Chelsea Ave., 609-428-4554) Go-Go Girl Glow/Scrub and Buff treatment, where masseuse Sue Frankel uses an all-over botanical scrub followed by a creamy salve.
Over the course of 80 minutes, you’ll be scrubbed, rubbed and kneaded into a completely unaccustomed sense of relaxation during the Arabian Knights Facial and Body Treatment at Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars (Caesars Atlantic City, 2100 Pacific Ave., 609-348-4411). Knots are massaged into oblivion and your face is rejuvenated with ointments. It’s a perfect recovery treatment for those who’ve been overindulging in booze and sun.
We go behind the scenes with the latest face of Guess, and newly minted star of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue.
