Newport Marriott opens new spa in downtown Newport, RI featuring marine-inspired treatments as well as aromatherapy, facials, massages and other traditional spa treatments.

Newport, RI (OPENPRESS) June 12, 2009 — Newport Marriott has opened a 4,500 square foot spa, adding a new level of service to the landmark waterfront hotel’s numerous amenities. Overlooking the busy marina, the Spa at Newport Marriott offers a peaceful oasis, with eight treatment rooms for massages and body treatments, a lounge, and a full-service hair and nail salon.

“This Spa is the largest facility of its kind in downtown Newport, which allows our experienced staff to provide a wide variety of personalized treatments and scheduling options,” said Spa Director Tasha Williams. “In keeping with our beautiful seaside location, we incorporate marine and aromatherapy based products throughout our services, for soothing and rejuvenating results.”

Eight different massage treatment options include the Massage Medley (which combines Swedish and deep tissue techniques), the Cliff Walk Foot Ritual (designed to follow a day of sightseeing on Newport’s 3.5 mile coastal trail), the Stone Therapy Massage (with heated riverbed stones and warm oil), and the Mother-to-Be Massage (using specially designed pillows for comforting support).

Four facial treatments — the Hydrating Facial, Anti-Aging and Firming Facial, Deep Cleansing Facial, and Customized Gentlemen’s Facial — help turn back the clock. Customized masks are also available at this Newport, RI spa to hydrate and tone the eye area.

The spa also offers body Treatments, such as the Bayside Sea Scrub (with coconut essential oils and pure sugar cane) and the Herbal Sea Salt Scrub (featuring peppermint and rosemary), which exfoliate dead skin cells, revealing smooth and supple skin all over the body.

The Spa at Newport Marriott also offers a full salon, for haircuts, styles, colorings, manicure and pedicure services, make-up artistry and more. For individuals seeking a morning or afternoon of personal care at this downtown Newport hotel spa, two spa packages are available: the Bellevue Beauty, and the Seaside Sampler.

Newport Marriott spa guests can take advantage of a complimentary day pass to the hotel’s 10,000 square foot health club, including a 20’ x 40’ foot indoor saline swimming pool, sauna, racquetball courts and seasonal roof deck. The state-of-the-art, 1,381-square-foot fitness room features elliptical cross trainers, treadmills, cycles and weight training equipment.
