Spa Timeshare Resorts
Timeshare resorts specializing in spa treatments are popping up more and more frequently as the spa craze continues to broaden across the United States and the world. Many timeshare resorts offer spas in addition to their other amenities, but at a limited number of resorts, it is the spa itself that is the main attraction.
If a deluxe spa is your number one priority, look for a timeshare resort that offers not just facials and manicures, but also the newest treatments, including microdermabrasion and nonsurgical facelifts. The highest-end spas offer at least a half-dozen different styles of massage, plus body treatments including scrubs and polishing, soothing treatments, such as aromatherapy and steam baths, and beauty packages that can be purchased to create an entire day of pampering for men and women alike.
Marriott's Club Son Antem Golf Resort and Spa
The name of this timeshare resort in tourist-friendly Mallorca, Spain, is a sure tip-off that spa amenities are among the top on-site priorities — not just a tiny little throwaway back-room operation that the developer refers to as a spa to generate more business.
Available treatments include body wraps, body scrubs, facials, fitness counseling, foot baths, a lap pool, manicures, massages (and massage lessons), paraffin hand treatments, pedicures, a plunge pool, a steam room, and therapy baths. These are in addition to the sauna and steam rooms that are part of the on-site fitness center.
The Inn at Bay Harbor
This resort is in Bay Harbor, Michigan, on the shore of Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay. It has earned the Five Star Award from Interval International and offers a full-service spa and salon with treatments including massages, body wraps, facials, manicures, pedicures, bronzing, waxing, makeup application, and more. You can rent the entire spa facility for a group day of beauty or purchase gift certificates for packages including a three-and-a-half-hour men's treatment session (including a hot towel facial, a deep-tissue massage, a haircut, and more).
The Inn at Bay Harbor is also part of Interval International's Golf Resort Program, which includes discounted greens fees, discounted lessons, advance tee times, and more for the exchange company's members. A course is on site, along with other amenities such as bicycling and swimming.
Westgate Park City Resort and Spa
