Serendipity Day Spa & Wellness Center finds inspiration for its massage, skincare, and energy therapies almost everywhere on earth. Its menu of Aveda services channels the wholesome properties of plant essences, and certain body treatments—such as the chocolate cake scrub and organic pumpkin body wrap—evoke delightful kitchen aromas. Like walruses painting a landscape, the spa's masks draw from the land and ocean simultaneously, incorporating clay and seaweed components that transfer vitamins to visages.
The staff applies deft kneads and skin-clearing solutions in a quiet environment to minimize stress. Though cell phone use is prohibited, packages and party options allow groups to socialize while on the receiving end of facials and waxing forays.
Steven William Day Spa’s squad of beauty benefactors gussies up guests with hair, nail, skin, and spray-tanning services. The 45- to 60-minute Brazilian wax skillfully strips nether regions of unwanted bristles, removing as much or as little hair as the client wishes and granting the newly depilated the ability to carouse on beaches sans snow pants. Guests seeking a burnished body finish can faux-sun the dermis with an organic SunFX spray tan. During the 20- to 30-minute session, a tan technician coats skin with bronzing solution, leaving behind a gleaming, golden radiance custom to each client's skin tone. Spray tans bless bodies with an instant khakification, eliminating tedious extra steps like building up a base shade or slowly evolving to produce more melanin.

Guests also frequent Kara's Skin Care Studio for stress-melting massages and hand-holding sessions, which can run anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
