Best Spas on the First Coast | Amy West on The Chat

Best Spas

Craving a spa day? There are many reasons to set your sights on the First Coast as a destination to getaway to, one of which are her many fantastic spas. I recently reported to 10best on Jacksonville’s Top 10 Spas. Today I’m highlighting the top 5, as seen on my recent appearance on The Chat.

The Ritz-Carlton Spa in Amelia Island

(Amelia Island)

This destination has a unique relationship with salt. Located seaside, they are famous for their restaurant Salt and have a genius way of incorporating the surrounding region into their menu. You will see that influence mirrored in the Spa with Himalayan Sea Salt Scrubs and Bath Soaks. Himalayan Sea Salts are known to have healing and calming qualities and are great for detox.

The Ritz-Carlton Spa is full service, so you’ll find face, body, hair, and nail treatments.

The Ponte Vedra Spa

The Ponte Vedra Spa happens to be the regions largest facility of it’s kinda rounding out at 30,000 sq ft. Featuring over 100 beauty and pampering services they do everything from hair, makeup, nails, and body treatments. The Ponte Vedra Spa is perfect escape for special occasions, pre-wedding preparations, or just a day to yourself to renew your mind and spirit.
