For those who think that the American Revolution and contemporary exfoliation are clashing concepts, SpaWatcher is here to say they are not. A visit to the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg proves the point.
Colonial Williamsburg — 301 landmarked acres encompassing 88 original and 500 reconstructed historic buildings — takes history seriously. So, when the decision was made to open a 3-story, 20,000-square-foot Spa two years ago, attention was paid to spirit of place, from decor to treatments. All signature treatments, in fact, are based on five centuries of meticulously researched Colonial, African and American Indian relaxation and healing practices.
