Your body is your temple, requiring regular ministrations by frocked specialists and daily incense fumigation to ward off epidermal demons. Keep skin glowing and free of evil with today's Groupon: for $125, you get two relaxation packages, each including a Swedish massage, a signature Evergreen facial, a manicure or pedicure, and a complimentary glass of champagne, at The Spa at Evergreen, located in the Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort inside Stone Mountain Park (up to a $360 value).
In a thoroughly relaxing set of spa treatments, The Spa at Evergreen's aestheticians lavish attention on fatigued couples' frames, massaging and exfoliating skin in a luxury resort a stone's throw away from the serene foliage of the 3200-acre Stone Mountain Park. Step through the double doors of the Evergreen Marriot and into a dark-hued, tastefully appointed massage room, where candles and soft lighting illuminates comfortable massage tables lying side-by-side. Massage therapists' practiced hands dissipate tension as they sweep over stressed shoulders and massage spinal columns until each vertebra hums with joy.
In the second soothing stage of the relaxation package, the fifty-minute Evergreen signature facial, a therapist mixes aromatic botanicals to suit each guest's nostalgic longing for the sweet smell of an orchard or the all-American aroma of a deep-fried football. The customized mixers help put noses and minds at ease as deft acupressure gently pushes faces back into more youthful configurations. Finally, after nimble fingers file nails with artisanal precision in a European-style manicure or a pedicure, guests can sip complimentary glasses of champagne together and compare their newly buffed nails, pitting splendidly arrayed thumbs against each other in battle. Following their deluxe spasperience, guests are free to slip into the spa's jacuzzi or dive into its pool.
The Spa at Evergreen
Located in the Marriott Evergreen, a resort described by an NBC Channel 11 reporter as "like being in another world," The Spa at Evergreen celebrates 10 years of transporting guests to another dimension of relaxation with pampering massage, skin, and nail services. The décor of each of the in-hotel spa’s treatment rooms is inspired by an element to add an air of ritual to massages, facials, and body wraps. In the earth room, dark tones and the soothing scent of sandalwood and teak form a stark contrast to the lavender-colored, citrus-scented wind room, where aestheticians perform facials with Dermalogica products. In the water room, a rain shower in the ceiling rinses mud and seaweed from bodies after exfoliating body treatments or slimming wraps. Flickering candles warm the final treatment space, aptly named the fire room, where soothing massages atop heated treatment tables melt muscles like caramel snowmen.
