Weekend spa trip within 3 hrs of Charlotte, NC?

Jump to last reply

I'm celebrating my 30th birthday and want nothing more than a relaxing, calm weekend. Indulgent food, spa and scenery. More specifically: comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms and sauna/steamroom are a must.

My first thought was Grove Park Inn but the prices are absurd. It's a gorgeous place but I've been wonderful hotels before and never shelled out $160 for a 50 minute basic massage. I've seen good reviews for Westglow in Blowing Rock? I like the all inclusive concept but worry that it might be a little to small and "Bed & breakfast" for me.

My other thought was maybe the coast - Wilmington or one of the beaches south of OBX... I'd love something near the ocean but doing a quick glance, it doesn't seem like there are many resorts that cater to the spa crowd.

Charleston and Myrtle were on my list as well but with my type A personality, I'm sure I'd feel obligated to go "do" something - take a tour, walk around, shop, etc. and I am really trying to make this as mellow as possible.

Thanks!
