Haunted Spas

1 Nov

Put the Boo! in beautiful at these spooky spas that have all been rumored to be haunted. Maybe the ghosts are looking for a little body work?

1. 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa, Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Sci Fi Channel’s Ghost Hunter show can’t be wrong! One of the most haunted hotels in the world, dark spots, floating visions and the ghost of a construction worker who fell to his death during the construction of the hotel.

But, who cares about a ghost when you can relax at the hotel’s New Moon Spa? Try the Pure Focus Facial Massage!

2. Safety Harbor Resort and Spa Safety Harbor Florida

Considered Florida’s first spa, Safety Harbor’s founder Dr. Baranoff’s presence has been said to felt during a massage.   Salt shakers have mysteriously disappeared from the restaurant (bad for the body you know!) Plus, 2 people said they were bitten by a dog statue. Via http://starkimages.homestead.com/safetyharborspa.html

Sleep right through those hauntings, try their Lavender Dreams spa duet – an Espiritu Springs Mineral Bath & Lavender Dreams Ultimate Experience

3. Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii

HHV is the home of Mandara Spa, the largest spa in Waikiki. In 1959, an employee saw a woman in a red dress vanish before his eyes as he was escorting her to a room. Some say she is the ghost of a woman murdered in a tower room, while others say she is none other than the volcano goddess herself, Madame Pele.

Volcano Goddess or not, emerge as a goddess from Mandara, after indulging in their Hot Stone Therapy which incorporates volcanic Basalt stones in the massage!

4. Claremont Hotel & Spa Berkely, CA

Maybe she needs a spa day? Their Anti-Gravity facelift would be perfect!

5. The Langham Hotel & Spa, London

Though 5 ghosts have been seen here, the main one is the ghost of a doctor who committed suicide at the hotel after murdering his new wife on his honeymoon. via NatGeoAdventure

Visit the hotel’s Chuan Spa to balance the yin and yang out of that ghost. The spa opens in Jan. 2011.

Happy Halloween! Candy
