The demand for rejuvenation and relaxation has never been greater
Bolton Landing, NY (PRWEB) March 23, 2007
Renovation plans are set to transform parts of The Sagamore, the private island resort on Lake George, including its award-winning spa retreat. A range of new improvements, including the addition of a fireplace and cascading water wall, are designed to enhance the resort's already magical ambience. Two new treatment rooms will also be added, bringing the total to 13.
"The demand for rejuvenation and relaxation has never been greater," says Spa Director Sue Butterfield, "and these resort enhancements underscore our commitment to creating a restorative and tranquil environment for our guests. Both men and women are turning to the spa retreat to relieve the stress of their daily lives, to reconnect with one another and to combat the aging process aggressively and intelligently. Their goal, quite simply, is to live a longer, healthier life and we're here to help them do it."
Long been a favorite resort destination of travelers seeking relaxation in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, The Sagamore delivers an incomparable spa retreat experience. Designed to reflect the area's pristine beauty and rich natural resources, the improvements to the Sagamore Spa will create an even more tranquil environment in which to experience such favorite treatments as the Mountain Maple Escape, a body treatment tapping Adirondack maple sugar and local honey to exfoliate and heal.
The spa retreat reflects a contemporary view of tranquility, wellness and rejuvenation, the atmosphere is immediately soothing, allowing guests to instantly fall into a natural rhythm as they consider a range of restorative services and challenging work-out options.
