    5 Tips for a Better Spa Experience

    Last updated 7 months ago

    Heading to the spa for a massage, facial or other body treatment is rewarding in more ways than one.  After treating yourself to spa indulgence, your skin will have an incredible glow, stress is reduced, and muscle pain is eased – the ultimate relaxation experience.

    The following tips will help you receive the full benefits of your treatment at the spa.

    1. Relax and be open to your spa treatment.  Turn off your cell phone to eliminate distractions, stress, or anything that could get in the way of relaxation.
    2. Schedule your next treatment before you leave the spa.  Massage and spa treatment benefits increase over time, plus you deserve to pamper yourself again!
    3. Do not immediately shower or bathe after your spa treatment.  Allow your skin to absorb the oils and vitamins, leaving your skin to look, feel and be healthier.
    4. Drink plenty of water. Spa water is great too; you get the benefits of quality H2O along with fruit and herbs.
    5. Relax after leaving the spa. Your spa visit includes complete access to Turf Valley’s indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, and fitness center. Or plan on relaxing at home, the park, or another place free of stress. You’ll leave the spa feeling relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated; hold on to that sensation as long as possible.

    Experience the many benefits of a spa service by booking a spa package or treatment here at Turf Valley. In addition to offering hotel conference facilities, we offer one of the most luxurious spa facilities in the Baltimore and DC area. To find out which of our spa services is right for you, call (410) 465-1500.

    Looking for a Unique Bridal Shower Idea? Host a Bridal Shower Spa Party

    Last updated 8 months ago

    If sitting around playing games and eating cupcakes isn't your idea of a fun bridal shower, then why not spice things up by hosting your shower at a spa? With help from the hotel conference facilities coordinator at your Baltimore resort and spa, you can put together a party that's anything but cliché. Here is a closer look at how to host a bridal shower spa party:

    Treat the Bride to a Special Service
    Whether you're the maid of honor or just a longtime friend of the bride, take it upon yourself to ask the bridesmaids and party attendees to pitch in on a service or special package for the bride to enjoy. From a relaxing Swedish massage to a facial that will make her feel like a pampered princess, there's no spa service too luxurious for the guest of honor at her bridal shower.

    Allow the Attendees to Choose Their Own Packages
    When it comes to booking services for yourself and the other women attending the bridal shower, be sure to allow each guests to choose her own treatment. Doing so will eliminate any awkward tension that could arise from an angry or upset guest who doesn't enjoy a certain type of service or whose budget doesn't allow her to pay for one of the pricier packages offered.

    Book a Post-Service Lunch
    To wrap up the shower in a classy and enjoyable fashion, speak to your Baltimore hotel conference room and spa coordinator about reserving a table for lunch at the on-sight cafe. After you, the bride-to-be, and your fellow guests have been pampered, you can relax with one another while enjoying a tasty meal before toasting to the fabulous festivities to come.

    The spa here at Turf Valley is an excellent site for a bridal shower thanks to our numerous spa treatments and our relaxing environment. We also offer spa packages and specials that make it easy to arrange a group reservation. To begin the process of booking your upcoming spa party with us, call (410) 465-1500.


    What to Wear to a Summer Wedding!

    Last updated 8 months ago

    It's summer here in Baltimore and that means that it's time to start picking out some stylish and appropriate apparel to don for the many fabulous weddings that will take place this season. Whether you're headed to a rustic wedding on a country estate or a chic and modern reception at a Baltimore hotel hall, it's important that you stick to a dress code that is fun yet refined all at the same time. Here is a look at what you should wear to a summer wedding:

    Keep Clothing Weather-Appropriate
    When picking out the perfect outfit for a summer wedding, look at the forecast a few days in advance. Although you may be keen on wearing a long dress that you've recently purchased or a thicker suit that you just got a great price on, heavier fabrics could make you feel weighed down during the event, whether its outside or indoors in a hotel convention ballroom.

    Pay Attention to Dress Code Requirements
    As soon as you receive the wedding invitation, look for any dress code requirements included by the couple. Although black tie weddings are less common during the summer, they do occur and all guests are expected to follow suit. Women can get away with tea-length dresses at a black tie affair if the fabric and color choices are subtle and sophisticated.

    Make Comfort a Top Priority
    The final category to address when picking out a summer ensemble is comfort. While it may seem like the perfect occasion to show off a fabulous pair of strappy sandals or new leather oxfords, these options could leave you with blisters and aching arches by the end of the night. If you must wear sacrifice comfort for beauty, bring a pair of back up shoes to dance in.

    If you're the lucky couple getting ready to say “I do,” be sure to visit Turf Valley to find out why we're the perfect location for your summer wedding reception. We've been hosting weddings for over 30 years and excel in planning every detail from the menu down to the seating arrangements.

    The Health Benefits of Massage and Spa Treatments

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Those who frequently indulge in massage and spa treatments at their Baltimore hotel convention center and resort can attest to the numerous rewards that these services have to offer to both the body and the mind. From offering relief to a number of bodily ailments to promoting a more peaceful and serene state of mind, numerous medical experts also agree that a massage or facial offers much more than just an enjoyable experience. Here are some of the health benefits of massage and spa treatments:

    Slow Down the Aging Process
    One of the most obvious signs of aging that we display is wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. With a luxurious facial treatment at your Baltimore hotel with conference facilities and spa amenities, you can improve the moisture level in your skin and stimulate collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

    Improve Flexibility
    In addition to feeling great, a professional massage can increase your level of flexibility and improve your natural posture. As a massage therapist applies pressure to the various muscles and rotates them in a safe manner, he or she increases their range of motion. This bending and stretching loosens up the joints, elongates muscles, and enhances overall flexibility.

    Increase Circulation
    During massage, the masseuse promotes the eradication of bacteria and toxins from the muscles and joints which exit the body through the lymphatic system. Once these waste products are gone, essential nutrients and chemical compounds are able to flow through your blood and carry their benefits to the internal organs and the skin. This boost to circulation can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease as well as the development of skin blemishes like cellulite or bruising.

    You can discover the many benefits of a spa service by booking a spa package or treatment here at Turf Valley. In addition to offering hotel conference facilities, we're proud to offer one of the most luxurious spa facilities in the Baltimore and DC area. To find out which of our spa services is right for you, call (410) 465-1500.
