A RELAXING EXPERIENCE
North coastal view
Our second day proved to be even more of an escape, as we were pampered at the luxurious Ocean Place Spa. A recent $4 million makeover makes it unforgettable. After enjoying a soothing couple’s massage, we enhanced our experience with a rejuvenating Joint & Muscle Arnica Soak in a private soaking tub romantically illuminated by candlelight. It was easy for us to imagine that with its excellent spa and inviting indoor pool, Ocean Place Resort and Spa would be a great escape any time of the year. Ocean Place’s beachfront location, upscale facilities, and numerous amenities made us feel like we had escaped to paradise. Ocean Place’s private beach welcomed us with swaying palm trees and comfortable lounges and umbrellas set up by the beach attendants. Also, on-site parking, internet service, room mini-fridge, an indoor pool with heated soaking tub, an outdoor pool with Jacuzzi, and a well-equipped fitness center are tempting amenities. Children will be kept occupied with the Ocean Play room equipped with small couches, games, a large-screen TV, movies, and counselor-led program on weekends.
