When they say less is more, they aren’t usually referring to spa treatments. However, the International Spa Association (ISPA) recently predicted that mini spa services at lower price points will be a growing trend in 2010. Providing good value in these challenging times and allowing spa-goers to sample a variety of treatments, spa tapas are a popular offering at many spas. Here are just a few of the spas promoting these appetizer-sized services:
Hyatt Regency Newport (Newport, RI)
Available every Sunday through Thursday between the hours of 3 and 7pm, 25-minute spa tapas like the Tapas Soles Foot Massage and Tapas Facial are an affordable indulgence. Guests can order one for $50, two for $95, three for $145, and four for $195.
The Yachts of Seabourn
The ships’ Spa Villas feature express spa services, such as acupuncture, facials, hot stone massages, and more. Prices start at $15.
The Seagate Hotel & Spa (Delray Beach, FL)
Guests can take advantage of several mini spa treatments, including a sea salt body polish, reflexology, and an express facial. All are priced less than $65.
It looks like spas that make their treatments short and sweet will be on trend for 2010.
