Old Edwards Inn and Spa

Many of North Carolina’s varied spas take advantage of the great outdoors in a variety of ways, ranging from treatment ingredients to soothing settings. Here are a few specific options to spa it in the great outdoors:

Hot Springs Resort & Spa
Hot Springs
Located in the heart of quaint Hot Springs, outdoor hot tubs with natural hot mineral water (drained and cleaned after each use) are situated along the banks of the French Broad River and Spring Creek. Massages and other body treatments are also available.

The Omni Grove Park Inn
Asheville
The world-class spa at The Omni Grove Park Inn features a year-round outdoor pagoda that’s ideal for massages – and breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Access to outdoor pools, hot tubs and firepots is included with any spa visit.

Old Edwards Inn and Spa
Highlands
The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Spa at Old Edwards Inn has Mountain View Treatment Rooms on its soothing menu of spa options. Once a third-floor terrace outside the couples treatment room, the space was covered and dramatically converted into three private treatment rooms offering open-air massages and more. You enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival, while relaxing in a chaise lounge overlooking Main Street and nearby mountain vistas.

Pinehurst Resort
Pinehurst
The Spa at Pinehurst offers something truly unique – outdoor chair massages at the 18th green of the fabled No. 2 layout. This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Spa also features yoga and Pilates classes on the lawn outside the spa. Several treatments incorporate the indigenous scents of the region, including pine and magnolia.

Shoji Retreats
Asheville
Less than 10 minutes from downtown Asheville, Shoji is a Japanese-style outdoor hot tub and massage spa. It also has Lodge and Loft accommodations yards from a hot tub or fireside massage.

Sanderling Resort
Duck
Overlooking quiet Currituck Sound, The Sanderling Spa features a sound side gazebo sanctuary that’s an ideal location for a private outdoor massage.
