Nestled on the scenic shores of Reed's Bay, Seaview Resort ensconces guests in luxurious accommodations that spotlight picturesque panoramas. The historic hotel's deluxe amenities and proximity to Atlantic City and Philadelphia have speckled its storied past with visits from famous entertainers, presidents, and royalty. Plush rooms are stuffed with high-speed wireless Internet, complimentary Lavazza coffee, ample furnishings, and a 27" flat-screen television ($159+). Additionally, Groupon guests will receive room upgrades to suites decked out with sitting areas and marble baths when available (a $100 value).
Relaxing and working out don't usually go hand-in-hand, but things aren't usual at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers. As soon as visitors set foot in the Mind Body Studio, they're set at ease by a modern lounge area, which boasts sleek bamboo floors, exposed brick walls, and sprigs of verdant plants. Inside the workout space, classes such as yoga and the barre method emphasize the mind-body connection. The Nalini Method classes also push students toward inner harmony with a combination of Pilates, aerobics, barre work, and yoga, helping students de-stress while toning limbs and burning calories without ever tossing any cheesecakes into open flames.
The aestheticians at Spa & Salon at the Golden Nugget take a novel approach to making guests feel like a million bucks—they cover them in gold. The spa's 24K Treatments use gold-infused products, which may smooth wrinkle lines and increase the likelihood of being mistaken for an Oscar statuette. Therapists perform these treatments, along with an array of other services tailored to women and men, either at their fourth-floor location or in the comfort of guests' rooms. Beyond treatments for the face, body, and nails, the spa offers visitors relaxing amenities including a sauna, whirlpool, and steam room. A fitness area supplies cardio machines with built-in LCD television displays and MP3 adapters, as well as a total-body gym and free weights for resistance workouts.
At Vineland Community Acupuncture, acupuncture treatments are performed in a group setting. Fully clothed patients gather in a relaxed environment as a licensed acupuncturist uses small, sterile needles in an attempt to unblock internal energies. Treatments can potentially assuage conditions such as headaches, allergies, stress, pain, and depression.
Tangerine offers a full gamut of aesthetic services for nails and skin, along with stress-eviscerating facials and massages. Facial options include a 60-minute signature tangerine facial customized for the divergent visages of men and women ($75) and a hyperexfoliating microdermabrasion treatment ($95 for a single session). Reward your digits for their success in the all-limbs foosball tournament with a spa manicure ($28), pedicure ($53), or other nail treatment. In addition to haircuts and coloring, Tangerine offers several rejuvenating hair treatments like the caviar anti-aging hair masque, a 15-minute process designed to revitalize damaged hair until its radiance can be used to signal low-flying aircraft ($25).
