Refresh for Fall with Seasonal Activities, Treatments and Dining at Turning Stone Resort Casino
With summer winding down, it seems as though everyone has health and wellness on the brain. For hardworking women, the desire to refresh and renew is more than skin deep; health and total relaxation translate to a peace of mind that transcends all areas – personal, professional and emotional. Central New York resorts have observed this need and are rolling out a variety of services and amenities to provide total mind-body refreshment going into the fall.
As children head back to school and schedules begin to seem all too full, creating relaxing experiences to look forward to can make a world of difference for working women. Turning Stone Resort Casino has a variety of amenities perfect for achieving a sense of calm before life grows hectic.
The Forbes Four Star-rated Lodge at Turning Stone is an ideal spot for a tranquil escape. Recently rated the Best Countryside Hotel in all of the Americas by Condé Nast Johansens, the all-suite hotel offers privacy and space to unwind and enjoy, and consistently works to craft the experience of a lifetime for its guests. The serene and luxurious ambiance of the Lodge itself is just the beginning of that experience, with special stay add-ons, activities, spa treatments and delicious meals available to make a stay at the Lodge both relaxing and truly memorable.
September and October bring crisp air and changing leaves to Central New York and the Lodge offers two incredible activities available to help guests take full advantage. Through October 31, guests of the Lodge can add a hot air balloon ride to their stay. Touring the Central New York countryside by air, with all its lush green fields and brightly colored trees, is a rejuvenating experience sure to make for an impressive stay.
Guests of the Lodge can also take advantage of the temperate fall weather by making s’mores at the Great Lawn’s fire pit. S’mores kits are available year round at no additional cost and make for a cozy fall activity, day or night.
Within the Lodge, guests can enjoy a variety of amenities without traveling far, including world-class dining for breakfast and dinner at Wildflowers, a AAA Four Diamond-rated restaurant. Serving traditional continental cuisine with the freshest ingredients, Wildflowers menu incorporates rich, fall flavors with culinary finesse that is sure to impress both the eyes and the palate.
As the days grow cooler, hot stone massages begin to sound increasingly more soothing. Ska:ná:, a luxurious spa inspired by Oneida Indian culture and healing techniques located in the Lodge, has added powerful Himalayan pink salts to their hot stone massage treatment, providing both relaxation and detoxifying benefits. The use of pink Himalayan salt stones, as opposed to standard black basalts, has been shown to reduce inflammation, reduce muscle cramps by improving hydration, aid in balancing blood sugar and induce deep relaxation.
Seasonal manicure and pedicure packages are a great way to experience the latest innovations and products available. For the month of September, guests can enjoy an invigorating Blood Orange Mojito manicure and pedicure, which includes a refreshing peppermint soak, a lime zest scrub and a hydrating blood orange custard lotion. Guests visiting in October can enjoy a Pumpkin Pie treatment, which begins with a warm pumpkin soak and sweet cream scrub, and ends with a restorative massage with caramel body milk.
Before and after treatments, Ska:ná: guests are given full-day access to the spa, including the soothing mineral pools, steam room, sauna, hot tubs and more. While enjoying a day of pampering, guests can also order a healthy and delicious meal from Ska:ná: café’s new menu. The café, located in the main waiting area of the spa, allows the healing effects of the treatments to continue with nourishing and delicious food. Meals are customizable, featuring a variety of health-conscious options, all for $15, including tax and tip.
Guests looking for more excitement can easily venture over to the main wing of the resort. The main wing boasts amenities including world-class entertainment from legendary musicians and comedians, more than 20 exciting dining options, over 120,000sf of Las Vegas-style gaming and five golf courses, all open through mid-October. After enjoying the offerings of the main wing, the peaceful quiet of the Lodge is never far, allowing for a recharge before the next day’s adventures.
As back-to-school season kicks into high gear, working women need more than ever to be at the top of their game physically, mentally and emotionally. The Lodge at Turning Stone is engineered to leave guests feeling refreshed and renewed following a stay.
