A big fan of the natural moisturizers found on the Galapagos, Charles Darwin coined the phrase “Walk with soft skin, but carry a big stick,” due to the cat-sized mosquitoes that populated the island. Enjoy softening skin care in a much safer environment with today’s Groupon. For $65, you get $135 worth of any spa services at Relâche Spa, located in the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. The Tennessean voted Relâche Best Spa in its 2009 “Toast of Music City” awards.
A veritable collector of accolades (and a secret collector of PEZ dispensers), Relâche Spa nurtures the mind and body with soothing resort spa services that include a plethora of massages, facials, waxing, nail enhancements, hairstyling, and more (all services accrue an additional $5–$10 charge from Friday to Sunday). Indulge in a muscle-melting, 50-minute Swedish massage ($130/$140) or a 50-minute vitamin-C facial ($135/$145) and achieve a state of invertebrate relaxation that would make even a blobfish smile. High-school-reunion attendees with a lot of old flames to make jealous can class it up with a 50-minute special-occasion makeup application ($75/$80), while exiled monarchs can reminisce about the good old days over an 80-minute royal pedicure ($95/$100). A body therapy ($135/$145) such as the 50-minute Tropical Island Glow, meanwhile, will fool people into thinking you went somewhere warm on vacation, so long as they don’t notice that apparently only your torso went.
After being barraged all day with UV rays, gamma rays, and microwaves jettisoned from passing garbage trucks, you deserve to renew your well-weathered epidermal veneer at Relâche Spa. Call ahead to schedule your appointment, or hide your request inside a hit song and hope the salon plays it backwards.
Spa services are available to ages 18 and older.
