Michigan's Boyne Highlands Resort announces opening of new spa

HARBOR SPRINGS, Mich. -- Boyne Highlands Resort is pleased to announce a new resort amenity, The Spa at Boyne Highlands, opening for business on Friday, May 25. Resort guests and day visitors can relax and rejuvenate at the new facility, which offers four treatment rooms, a relaxation area and spa boutique as well as provides spa goers with access to an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness facility.

"The Spa is a great addition to Boyne Highlands," said Brad Keen, Boyne Highlands Resort president and general manager. "We offer many adventure activities from golf, to horseback riding, ziplining, Segway tours and winter sports. The Spa provides the opportunity to slow down, relax and enjoy a soothing and therapeutic treatment."

The Spa's service menu includes body services, facials, skincare and 25-, 50- and 80-minute massages. The signature treatment, a Bamboo Massage, uses heated bamboo as an extension of the therapist's hands to reach into muscle tissue more deeply, gently and efficiently than possible with hands alone providing ultimate relief for tired and sore muscles.

The Spa at Boyne Highlands is located in the lower level of the Heather Highlands Inn, the former location of the Wellness Institute. The space has been extensively renovated adding a spa boutique and relaxation area, as well as remodeled treatment rooms. The Spa's hours of operation are Tuesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and spa reservations can be made starting Monday, May 21.

Lodging and spa packages are also available including a Renewal Package providing hotel accommodations at Boyne Highlands, breakfast for two each morning and a $200 spa credit with each night's stay.
