GREENWICH, Conn. -- Those looking for a getaway close to home should look no farther than the Delamar Greenwich Harbor, where the spa was just recently expanded.
There are now three treatment rooms (there were two before), including two that accommodate couples. Champagne is included with massages.
An expanded lobby area features a beauty counter where master makeup artist and Newtown resident Stacey Palencia can accommodate anything and everything -- think bridal parties, quick fixes, and so on.
There is also a full-service nail salon, Beautiful Nails.
The spa is most proud of its exclusive Biologique Recherche skincare line, which, according to Regional Spa Director Cheryl Jordan, has a reputation for astounding effectiveness based on a clinical approach to beauty care. Only pure, concentrated raw ingredients as well as innovative and meticulous protocols and procedures are used.
Also used by the estheticians at the spa, items by Valmont, an ultimate luxury brand built on helping men and women master aging.
Each Delamar treatment begins with a skin consultation by a highly trained skincare specialist who then creates a bespoke cocktail of products specially tailored for each client.
Guests will also find an Amethyst BioMat used on some of the treatments which lulls and relaxes while also delivering powerful healing to both mind and body.
Jordan said the spa tends to draw at least 60 percent of its customer base from lower Fairfield County, including Greenwich, Stamford, Westport, New Canaan and Darien. "Couples come as a nice getaway from the kids; women come on girl weekends. And there are many folks who come by boat who then enjoy the hotel's amenities for the day."
