After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a day-spa package at Fields of Athenry in Green's Harbour (a $129.99 value).
Anchored in an idyllic landscape gilded with rambling meadows, secluded beaches, and enchanting gardens, Fields of Athenry's Tudor-mansion-housed resort plays host to an Aveda spa that enlists pure botanical products to pamper guests with a panoply of services. A day-spa package grants visitors a full day's worth of access to resort facilities, which can include dips in the hot tub and tours through the resort's pastoral environs to spot wildlife and lute-strumming bards in their natural habitats. Patrons can also choose from one of four half-hour spa services. Thirty-minute Pure Focus facials set custom crosshairs on individual skin conditions, and an aromatic-oil scalp massage breathes life back into sapped scalps with oils and Ayurvedic techniques. An Aveda body polish, meanwhile, evicts corporal stressors and induces euphoric musings in an exfoliating and moisturizing shower.
The spa further furnishes solace seekers with a light lunch and an afternoon tea service augmented by sweet biscuits and cookies. In between receiving these attentions, guests can channel their spirit animals during traipses through the resort property, whistling lullabies on a private forest trail or escaping to the beach for a view of whales.
