The recession has taken its toll in all corners of our lives, and the freedom to give ourselves a little taste of luxury has not escaped the chopping block. Here’s a way to indulge and not break the budget: “spa sampling.”
Spa “tapas” are being offered at some of the top spas around the globe, providing excellent value and allowing guests to pick and choose from a variety of appetizer-sized treatments. Multiple spa treatments are now affordable, even during a recession. Here are some of the amazing spas where we found such examples.
Hyatt Regency Newport (NewPort, Rhode Island)
The Stillwater Spa at Hyatt Regency Newport offers treatments designed with innovative, marine-based products in harmony with five key elements — plant, water, stone, salt and air — and focused on achieving the four states of well being: physical, spiritual, emotional and social. For guests looking to experience these elements, the spa now offers affordable 25-minute mini-treatments, such as the Tapas Soles Foot Massage, Color Shot Tasting, Tapas Soles Foot Massage and Tapas Facial. Spa tapas are available every Sunday through Thursday between the hours of 3 and 7 PM. Order one for $50, two for $95, three for $145 or four for $195.
