Experience Westglow Resort & Spa
Nestled in the heart of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains is the Westglow Resort and Spa. Named the seventh best destination spa in the world by Travel + Leisure Magazine, Westglow is a 20-acre escape from hassle, anxiety and tension, due to the staff’s unrelenting desire to help guests relax with constant personal attention.
A beautifully restored Greek Revival mansion, the Manor House features six enchanting suites. The mansion blends the new and old by providing guests with early luxurious décor and 1900’s furnishings, flat panel televisions, wireless Internet, and an in-house movie library. Downstairs in the Manor House sits Rowland’s, the Resort’s quiet restaurant. If you seek a little more solitude, there is the Cedar Lodge, with one- and two-bedroom options, as well as a quaint cottage providing even more privacy.
The fine dining at Rowland’s is open to all spa members, resort guests, and the public. Rowland’s offers an “indulgent menu” full of tasty options to tempt your palate, and a “spa menu” featuring delicious health-conscious options. Each menu features delectable organic produce from local growers. The dinner menu is accompanied by a selection of fine wines, champagne and cocktails.
The crowning jewel of Westglow is the Life Enrichment Center, where the accommodating staff guides you towards reclaiming a long-lost easy feeling. Three new decks off the back allow guests the opportunity to sunbathe or simply breathe the cleansing mountain air. Experience bliss as an expert staff member turns pampering into an art form. Treatments range from different types of facials to Thai Massage, Raindrop Therapy, Blue Ridge Body Wrap, or various other therapies and massages. Westglow offers their own Weight Management Package designed to improve your emotional wellbeing as well as your physical fitness by putting you on the path to proper nutrition. At the spa you can also focus on your health with a fitness assessment, personal trainer, privately instructed Pilates, private tennis lessons, cooking classes, supermarket tours, and a nutrition assessment and diet consultation.
At Westglow Resort and Spa, you have more options than just massages and treatments. On-site activities include hiking, croquet, swimming and tennis, as well as biking and camping trips. The Westglow staff will also happily arrange off-site adventures, such as fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, horseback riding, caving, a game of golf and several other options. The Salon offers services in hair care, nail care, waxing, and make-up.
