An aura of calm flows around Spa at Sanderling — located across the street from the Outer Banks’ oceanfront Sanderling Resort, the spa overlooks the placid waters of Currituck Sound. The spa’s signature treatments draw inspiration from this North Carolina coastal environment, using ingredients such as crushed pearl, lava clay, sea salt and algae to heal the body and skin. One of the many unique offerings is the Sea of Life facial that uses seashells and ocean sounds to induce glowing skin and relaxation. More classic spa menu items include hair care and waxing as well as manicures, pedicures and pre-wedding services.
Kicking back in the casual yet inviting beach-house-inspired building of Spa at Sanderling is one of the best parts of booking a treatment. The facility is home to 10 treatment rooms; a nail, makeup and hair salon; a solarium; an outdoor, sound-side massage gazebo; a stunning indoor pool; and an intimate couples lounge. Sip a cup of soothing tea as you decompress in one of the spa’s “whisper zones” and enjoy views of the sound before your treatment. Or start your mornings at Sanderling Resort with the spa’s sunrise yoga class on an oceanfront observation deck. Bring your towel and practice your sun salutations, welcoming another relaxing day in the Outer Banks.
