Cape Cod Resort with Wellness Spa and Indoor Wave Pool
The spirit of Cape Cod fills the Cape Codder Resort & Spa, both inside and out. The walls surrounding the indoor wave pool and 24-person hot tub are decorated with a hand-painted mural of the surrounding landscape, showing lighthouses and sand dunes topped with undulating seagrass. In front of the mural stands a replica of a ship with two water slides shooting out the front, a lighthearted version of the schooners chugging through the Atlantic waters outside. Even the name of the onsite Beach Plum Spa pays homage to the region, referring to a native fruit-bearing plant that helps prevent beach erosion and sustain coastal wildlife.
At Hearth 'n Kettle restaurant, all meals are made fresh, in-house from original recipes under the supervision of an executive chef. Many of the entrées are prepared using all natural, organic and locally grown ingredients and selections range from hearty soups and chowders to fresh, native seafood and traditional comfort foods such as chicken pot pie. The other onsite restaurant, Grand Cru Wine Bar & Grill, serves choice cuts of beef and fresh seafood as well as more than 20 different wines by the glass.
In a secluded nook outside you’ll find the Rainbow Falls heated pool, which stays open year-round. When the sun sets, this oasis surrounded by native gardens comes to life with an underwater LED light show. At the Beach Plum Spa, all the products used are natural or certified 100% organic. You can apply the spa credit included with this getaway toward treatments such as a manicure ($25), a 60-minute wellness massage ($95), and or a Chakra Dead Sea moisturizing milk bath ($35).
