With the hot, lazy days of summer fading fast, spa-goers can warm to the new fall offerings at The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg (VA). Offered in conjunction with the The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg’s Autumn Spa Escape (starting at $165 per person) package, the Deep Forest Massage (60 minutes), which relies on balsam fir pine blended with juniper, red mandarin orange, and bergamot to invigorate the senses, and the Harvest Facial (60 minutes), which uses organic fruits and vegetables to promote a radiant complexion, are just two of the new treatments spa-goers can experience. These seasonal offerings will have spa-goers bidding a fond farewell to summer.
