A pampering waterfront retreat in Maine
6 Treatment Rooms
From the taupe tiles underfoot to the serene soundscapes, Spa at Inn by the Sea offers an impeccably designed, luxuriously relaxing experience. The décor takes its cues from the natural landscape, immersing you in sandy yellows and sea grass green.
When you step into the lobby, the staff is ready to welcome you into the soothing space, complete with an Italian-inspired mosaic floor and leafy houseplants that frame the natural wood reception desk.
The Maine spa unfolds into separate men’s and women’s sanctuaries, where you can store your belongings in wooden lockers before heading off to a treatment. Couples are welcome to book the Suite for Two, which features an oversized soaking tub and side-by-side beds, an ideal setup for a romantic massage.
The spa offers a bevvy of treatments designed to pamper from your face to your feet. Starting at the top, combat wrinkles with the Ocean Siren Facial, which uses seaweed extracts to firm skin and marine serum to provide cellular repair. For younger clientele, the spa has a Smooth Sailing Teen Facial, utilizing gentle botanical extracts to exfoliate and cleanse. There’s even an option for men — the Men’s Maritime Facial includes hot towels and a neck and shoulder massage.
For those short on time, a simple 60-minute massage will get the job done. More extensive offerings can be found on the Signature Treatment menu, which lists combination services like the Seaside Delight (a massage plus a facial), the Deep Sea Soother (a full-body massage paired with an aromatherapy wrap and a foot rub) or the Couples Indulgences (which includes a scalp massage, facial, therapeutic oil massage, private soak in the built-for-two tub, soft music and decadent chocolates).
You can also choose to add on an enhancement, like brow waxing, a foot massage, scalp massage or a paraffin hand or foot treatment. These smaller offerings are designed to complement the scrubs, massages and soakings that make up the bulk of the spa’s extensive menu.
Upon arrival, you will be welcomed into one of the two sanctuaries where you’ll find plush robes and sandals ready for wear. In keeping with the hotel’s eco-friendly mission, the spa uses products featuring natural and organic ingredients, like seaweed, marine-based peptides and pure essential oils.
The eucalyptus-scented air is a relaxing and subtle touch. Should you prefer unscented products, the luxury spa offers an exclusive line of lotions and oils specially formulated for sensitive skin.
Once you are finished with your massage and your brow shaping, step into the steam room to unwind. If the heat becomes too much, cool off in the experience shower, a beautifully tiled room that spouts water from the walls. It’s every bit as tranquil as a warm summer rain, but at Spa at Inn by the Sea, you can experience this full-body aquatic sensation no matter the season.
