The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge Gives Spa Complete Makeover
The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge has completed a substantial renovation to The Spa at Ballantyne. Interjecting contemporary elements into a traditional space, key improvements include new décor, upgraded equipment and more tranquil lounge areas.
All 18 treatment rooms features new lighting, calming green accent walls, upgraded treatment beds with built-in heated mattress pads and new linens. Additional innovative amenities include dedicated towel robe warmers, as well as chromatherapy lighting, which changes colors based on each guest’s element type, in massage rooms.
The Spa at Ballantyne’s new ladies lounge exudes soft blue, khaki and espresso tones, creating a bright and airy setting. Signature design elements include a ventless fireplace, setting a warm, soothing tone for the space and plantation shutters, displaying picturesque views of the golf course’s 18th hole. Enhanced showers feature natural stone accents, which are aesthetically pleasing and can be used to massage the feet.
Additional new design elements include a stone-top reception desk and a wave wall behind the reception area. The modern, clean-lined reception area offers a better welcome experience for guests.
The Salon at Ballantyne features special lighting designed to mimic daylight to ensure make-up and hair color is suited to the guest’s vision. Espresso-colored salon stations, separate backwash shampoo bowls with remote control recliners and enhanced lighting create a more dramatic effect.
“We have really elevated the entire spa visit through our facility improvements, extensive staff training, top-quality product lines and ritualistic menu,” said Bill Toth, Spa Director, The Spa at Ballantyne. “Our spa has gone from featuring several signature treatments to ensuring each service represents an extravagant experience.”
