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.
