The Heavenly Spa at The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort

The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa is located on a pristine stretch of Hilton Head Island’s Atlantic beachfront. It boasts a renewing wellness experience paired with soothing coastal colors, luxurious amenities, and amazing views of the island.

Cindi Moreno recently accepted the position of Director at the Heavenly Spa in Hilton Head Island. “I think it is wonderful that we can offer such a range of great services in a spa that is directly on the beach,” she said.

Moreno and her staff work diligently to provide the ultimate spa experience. “We begin with our signature scent of white tea and aloe. This lovely relaxing scent greets our guests when they step into our retail space directly off the main lobby, where they can browse through our excellent body products, gift items and clothing. Guests are then ushered into our locker rooms where they can then access the steam room or the whirlpool,”
said Moreno.

Each guest has the option for a full tour of the spa prior to being seated in the waiting area. Even waiting at The Heavenly Spa is a truly wonderful experience. “We have a men’s lounge, a ladies lounge and a coed lounge where our guests can wait for their next service to be available while drinking a glass of sparkling wine or mimosa,” said Moreno. “In addition to the traditional services such as hair, nails and skin, we have a long menu of wellness services from full body massage and body wraps to combination services.”

Your ultimate spa experience will begin with your therapist asking you to put all your cares in the ‘burden basket,’ which holds all those daily stresses and burdens while you are immersed in relaxation. These special baskets are made by a local company from palm fronds and once your items are placed in it, the basket is hung outside the door of your treatment room.

“Once the therapist has placed the client’s basket on the hook, they begin to ask questions about the temperature of the room, what aromatherapy scent they might like and specifically what they hope to achieve with the day’s service,” said Moreno. “If necessary, the therapist will make suggestions for any changes that will make the treatment more personalized to that client.”

The staff at the spa try to always be aware of specific information regarding each guest, such as who is coming in for a couples massage because of an anniversary, or who is coming because they are having a spa day for their birthday. They always ensure that these special occasions are made even more memorable by giving the client a special gift or card.

“No matter your reason for traveling to Hilton Head, our goal is to ensure you leave feeling better than when you arrived,” said Moreno. Visit westinhiltonheadspa.com or call (843) 681-1019 to schedule your service today.

We want you to relax and let us cater to your every need.”

While the restrictions of COVID-19 made 2020 an interesting year, the spa numbers for 2021 have far exceeded 2019 and brought in the highest revenue in the spa’s history. “We really have gotten to the point of being extremely busy,” said Pratt. “We have guests of the hotel, of course, but we also have a large number of clients in the surrounding community that come in for our skilled providers and lavish services. Our challenge now is to make sure we have the correct number of high-quality therapists to meet the current demand!”

Facial Treatment at the Heavenly Spa Hilton Head

Since COVID-19 clients are now, more than ever, looking for self-care. The Heavenly Spa by Westin Savannah understands this need, offering a full wellness experience and customizing care plans to each individual client, helping them reach all their goals. 

One of their signature treatments is the Deluxe Stone Crop Body Treatment. “The Deluxe Stone Crop treatment encompasses three treatments in one. It is a full body exfoliation, full body wrap and ends with a full body massage using our Eminence Stone Crop Line. This service can also be upgraded to a vichy shower, or add a stone crop facial to reach nirvana,” said Pratt. “The elements of this treatment will leave you with a lasting glow and serene tranquility.”

“I really want our clients to think of our spa as a retreat for self-preservation or a day out with friends,” added Pratt. “As our clients begin to think of New Year’s Resolutions, what better way to treat your mental and physical state than a self-reset. With the launch of our new menu, there isn’t a single service offered that won’t leave you feeling like you’re on cloud nine.” The new spa menu features organic high-end products, such as FarmHouse Fresh products utilized in one of the spa’s featured services, “The Earth, Sun & Waters” manicure or pedicure. The perfect choice after a long day walking the cobblestone roads of Savannah’s River Street, rejuvenating not only your feet and hands, but your whole mental state into decadence.
