10 Spas and Retreats That Will Warm Your Spirit This Winter

Around Wintertime we tend to stay indoors because the cold weather can take a toll on our body, mind, and spirit. We suggest thinking outside the box! Spending the day together at one of our many luxurious Asheville spas will certainly warm your heart and soul all winter long. Bliss out in a salt cave, unwind in a sauna or eucalyptus-infused steam room, or experience side-by-side massages in a couples’ suite.

Several spa trends are sweeping the nation and finding a home at many of our Asheville spas. Here are a few new experiences to tempt you to have a splurge-worthy spa date sometime soon.

Asheville Salt Cave

Feeling a little salty with life lately? There’s a remedy for that in Asheville and it’s called Asheville Salt Cave. Immerse yourself in the nature-inspired salt cave this winter through mindfulness, relaxation, and breathing. The intensely therapeutic saturated air will permeate your being with 84 healing elements and minerals, healing you from the inside out allowing you to rejuvenate and recharge.

When you first enter the cave, it’s important to establish the right spot for your body and it’s needs. Whether it’s on the salt floor propped up by pillows or in a comfy lounger, pick a seat where you will allow yourself to let go. Then, just kick back and relax. To help you with this, the constant trickling sound of soft running water to the joyful sounds of Enya style music, you can feel your body and mind drifting away. There’s a good chance you may even fall into a much-needed nap.

Book a private couples sessions for you and your sweetheart or be a part of the community cave session. Either way, you will leave this experience feeling lighter, spirited, and ready to take on the rest of your day! The new location in the wellness neighborhood of Asheville now offers two new salt caves, four water features, a private deck for soaking up the sun, free parking and don’t forget to book a massage.
