Body TreatmentsIndulge in the aromas. Rejuvenate the skin.
Allow us to take you on a sensorial journey with this special
ode to our founding father’s rich land upon which the
Biltmore Hotel sits today. In the early 1900s, George Merrick
settled this land and appropriately named it Guavonia for the
farm’s guava fruit.
An excellent source of antioxidant vitamin C, the guava is a
powerful anti-aging fruit which boosts collagen production
while nourishing and hydrating the skin.
Combat the visible effects of skin aging and restore the
appearance of a younger, more toned body with the decadent
scent and effects of guava. This treatment begins with a raw
cane sugar scrub followed by a luxurious milk bath soak. A
relaxing massage transports you to another time and leaves
your skin shimmering with a healthy glow.
Honey sourced from the pristine rainforests of Fiji nourishes
and firms the skin. Begin with a full-body exfoliation, stimulating
circulation and renewing skin. Next, a honey body
masque, high in vitamin B to strengthen connective tissue
and revive skin cells, will reduce the appearance of cellulite.
A warm oil scalp massage and application of exotic nut oils
restores hydration, leaving skin refreshed and glowing.

massage with our French Chardonnay body lotion concludes

Thalassotherapy, from the Greek words “thalasso” (sea water) and “therapeia” (to heal), has been used for preserving and restoring health since the time of the ancient Romans, Egyptians and Greeks. In fact, Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, was the first to detail the curative benefits of using sea water for ailments such as aching muscles, joint pain, rheumatism and arthritis.
Seaweed, known to contain 100,000 times as much mineral and vitamin content as seawater itself, can only be harvested by hand and needs to be selected by sight. When seaweed is steamed it produces amazing luxurious oils filled with proteins, minerals and vitamins that the body readily absorbs. The detoxifying effects of the seaweed and recuperative effects of its high mineral content are an amazing conditioning agent for the skin and hair and provide an excellent treatment for cellulite.
Experience the magical healing and relaxing effects of seaweed with one of our special seaweed services. Discover the anti-aging secret that many have known for thousands of years.
