ATV riding, star-gazing and spa-ing. Oh my!
Nearly 3,000 feet above sea level in the captivating Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia lies Primland Resort, a sprawling, luxury getaway, already popular with huntsmen and business elite, now emerging into the spotlight for spa enthusiasts. Still, its remarkable Native American-inspired spa is just one among an array of options for active vacationers.
If vacation for you is typically synonymous with lazy beach bumming, then an active spa vacation could be your dive into a wellness lifestyle. While we are big fans of vegging out, there is something incredible (and possibly life-altering) about spending a few days devoted to activity that is hopefully one of your favorite pastimes or perhaps an erupting new hobby. There are exceptional spas and resorts worldwide dedicated to programs for golf, hiking, water sports, winter sports, yoga and fitness.
Whether you’re a pro playing in the Masters or an amateur practicing your swing, spas have treatments inspired just for those who love the game of golf. More and more spa menus are sporting services to accommodate golfers, and these treatments are not just par for the course – they can help prevent injuries, improve your game, or simply soothe the aches and pains that can be caused on the green. Massage services, hydrotherapy soaks, acupuncture, hydrating facials (beneficial from hours in the sun), and even yoga and Pilates for golfers are among the treatments making the rounds on spa menus.
My husband will be turning 65 this month and I would like to suggest we do a ‘spa trip’ to celebrate. We both need to lose at least 40 lbs and want to be able to play golf. We live in South Carolina and would like to drive to a spa location.
