Our guests look forward each year to the new treatments and dishes we make from the wild Maine blueberry.
Ogunquit, ME (PRWEB) June 29, 2010
This summer, The Cliff House Resort & Spa http://www.cliffhousemaine.com in Ogunquit, Maine pays tribute to Maine's official state berry-the wild blueberry.
Blueberries are nature's #1 antioxidant fruit, an essential ingredient for health and well being. This powerful super fruit is a featured ingredient in many of the spa treatments and on the dining menu at The Cliff House Resort & Spa.
Blended right on site at the Spa, the Blueberry Body Wrap combines fresh Blueberries with ocean botanicals. The blueberries work to purify the skin and rejuvenate the body with its antioxidant powers. The Blueberry Smoothie Masque combines pureed organic blueberries, Spiralina Algae, Aloe Vera Gel, Chamomile Extract and Lavender essential oil. This unique combination is used in the Spa's Signature Facial and manicure and pedicure treatments. During July and August guests staying on the Yankee Catch three or four night package receive one free Maine Blueberry Pedicure per room. The Blueberry Spa Sampler, available Thursday and Sunday evenings, features three, 15-minute mini-treatments including a head, neck and shoulder massage, hand treatment with Blueberry and Rice Body Polish and lower leg hot towel massage.
Summer menu items include Blueberry Halibut, Blueberry Sangria Lemonade with chardonnay, orange liqueur, and a splash of cranberry juice and blueberry inspired deserts. The Cliff House Cookbook, a 72 page book of recipes dating from the founding of the resort in 1872, features Chilled Maine Blueberry Champagne Bisque and Grilled Chicken and Blueberry Salad.
Says fourth generation innkeeper Kathryn Weare, "Our guests look forward each year to the new treatments and dishes we make from the wild Maine blueberry."
The Cliff House Resort & Spa has been owned and operated by the Weare Family since 1872. Today, great-granddaughter Kathryn Weare operates the resort offering a world-class spa, fitness center, fine-dining, 194 guest rooms with ocean views and conference facilities.
