Sooth­ing stay­ca­tions in South­west Florida

RSWLiving - - Departments - BY MANDY CARTER

Re­lax. Re­ju­ve­nate. Re­fresh. Re­peat. Spaca­tions are a grow­ing trend for stressed-out Amer­i­cans. One of my fa­vorite things to do at a ho­tel is to in­dulge at the spa, be­cause I can con­tinue re­lax­ing in my ho­tel room af­ter the treat­ment. It’s much bet­ter than hav­ing to face real­ity im­me­di­ately with the drive home through traf­fic.

Luck­ily, South­west Florida has a num­ber of great spas lo­cated within beau­ti­ful re­sorts so you can ex­tend your re­lax­ation into an overnight stay. In­stead of spend­ing on a trip out of town, take that money and treat your­self with some pam­per­ing in our own piece of par­adise. Re­lax­ation … with no air­line tick­ets or pass­port re­quired!

If you need to get away for a few days and do noth­ing but re­lax, then con­sider one of these lo­cal ho­tels that has the per­fect re­lax­ing en­vi­ron­ment com­bined with a host of in­dul­gent well­ness treat­ments. Your only fo­cus dur­ing this mini spaca­tion should be on your mind, body and soul. Go be­yond the or­di­nary week­end get­away by book­ing a stay with treat­ments that ease the mind and nour­ish the spirit.
