You’ll find lots of healthy refreshments and beverages during your visit to The Spa at Bernardus Lodge near Carmel-by-the-Sea. In the warming room, there’s a wooden buffet topped with drinks and snacks. On our visit, the nibbles included dried cherries, almonds and dried apricots as well as a bowl with bananas, oranges and red and green apples. Fruit-infused spa water — the recipe changes frequently, but popular combinations include pineapple orange and pineapple mint — will keep you hydrated. There’s also an urn of hot water, which can be used to make a cup of herbal tea (peppermint, Earl Grey or jasmine green). You won’t need to worry about being hungry while you’re relaxing at The Spa at Bernardus Lodge.
