What You Should Know About Our Spa Services

Spa in Baltimore

Many luxury hotels and resorts near Baltimore have a spa on location. If you’re using a hotel for business travel, a conference, or a wedding venue, it’s easy and affordable to choose one of their spa packages. If you’re considering purchasing a spa package, check out these common spa services for some ideas.

Day Package
If this is your first time at a spa, you may want to start with a day package or mini day package to get a sense for the services the spa offers. Day packages and mini day packages typically last between two and five hours. The spa will allow you to choose two or three popular spa services from their menu, including massages, body treatments, body wraps, and facials. Body treatments typically involve body exfoliation and a body wrap or body cream. Body wraps involve a full-body application of cloth or linens that have been soaked with healing herbs, oils, algae, seaweed, or mud. Some spa packages also include breakfast or lunch.

Full Spa Package
Full spa packages generally include an abbreviated version of each of the spa treatments offered by the spa. Depending upon the spa, these spa treatments may include a full massage, facial, body treatment, body wrap, a visit to the sauna or steam room, and a manicure and pedicure. A full spa package can last six hours or more, and often includes lunch or dinner, drinks, and dessert.

Overnight Package
Overnight packages are often offered by spas in hotels. An overnight package can be a romantic getaway for you and your partner, or a fun mini-vacation for you and a group of friends. With overnight packages, you typically get a hotel room, spa treatments, and meals for an all-inclusive price.

Your Guide to Planning a Conference

Hotel Conference Facilities in BaltimoreHotel conferences and corporate retreats are a valuable way to get employees out of the office and into a new and engaging learning environment. If you’re in charge of planning your company’s conference or corporate retreat near Baltimore, there are a few things you can do to ensure that the conference is a worthwhile use of everyone’s time.

Form a Planning Committee and Agree on Goals
Having a group of people with unique and varied talents makes planning less stressful. Include team leaders from each department in your office so that everyone feels included and the office is well represented. Meet with this group one or two times in the beginning stages of your planning to create an agenda, agree on a budget, and determine the company’s goals for the event. Start planning at least six months in advance.

Choose a Venue
To maximize the value of your conference, hold it at an outside venue. The chance to leave the office will energize employees, and a neutral venue can help people stay productive and engaged. Many hotels have conference facilities that provide useful amenities such as audiovisual equipment, catering options, and large, comfortable meeting rooms. If you’re planning a corporate retreat near Baltimore, ask about specific packages and amenities for retreats. Hotels may offer golfing, spa treatments, and team building activities on site.

Be Flexible
One of the most important things to remember when planning a conference or corporate retreat is that there are so many people involved in the event that flexibility is key to your success. Be willing to alter the agenda, catering menu, and guest list to accommodate the needs of the majority.

If your company is looking for conference facilities in Baltimore, come see us at Turf Valley. We’re the perfect venue for your next conference or corporate retreat, as we have 27 meeting rooms with versatile floor plans, and offer 10% off of food, beverage, and guest rooms if you book a business meeting with us.

How To Throw a Beautiful Summer Wedding

Wedding season is upon us, and summer is a beautiful time to have a wedding! Turf Valley Catering Director Jenny Betlejewski shares a few tips and inspiration for planning your dream summer wedding.

Warm days and longer evenings make summer months a sought after time for weddings. You set the tone for the event – whether it be a swanky, no-holds-barred, late night black tie affair, or an easy, carefree southern barbecue with its roots in summer’s bounty. More often, couples mix the two for a laid back feel even with a high-style event.

Attire

Dresses can be cut shorter and even shorts might be an option for groomsmen in hot weather or perhaps seersucker suits. If you are having an outdoor ceremony, provide sunglasses so guests aren’t “blinded by your love” or parasols for your attendants to keep cool. Incorporate your pet into the walk down the aisle of your outdoor wedding or bring the flower girl or ring bearer down the aisle in a trusty red wagon.

Floral Arrangements

Find a classic or contemporary vase for centerpieces based on your style, and fill with zinnias, sunflowers and Queen Anne’s Lace for décor or bunches of small silver cups with Gerbera Daisies in sherbet shades for a powerful color punch.

Food Selection

Include baskets or bowls of peaches, plums and various berries for edible displays. Incorporate the produce into a fresh fruit pie or cobbler display for dessert – perhaps with just one layer of cake to cut into for ceremony. Offer a variety of lemonades and iced teas, garnished with mint and infused with various berries, with or without alcohol for adults and kids alike.

Decorations

Work with a lighting company to provide strands of lights across the dance floor for a starry night feel in air conditioned comfort. The Fourth of July is a great time to celebrate in Baltimore, the birthplace of our National Anthem, and events in Maryland near the nation’s capital can prove to be fun destinations for out-of-town guests. And fireworks are the perfect backdrop for your pre- or post-wedding event! Who doesn't love a light show in the sky?
