The Spa at Old Edwards

With 25,000 square feet of space devoted to relaxation, The Spa at the Old Edwards is perfect for chilling out southern-style.

Treatments performed in one of the spa suites use native North Carolina herbs and botanicals (some grown in the spa's own garden). The Spa's signature experiences include the sweet mountain metamorphosis, journey to bliss facial, and hot soufflé manicure and pedicure. For the ultimate in pampering, book a treatment in one of the alfresco cabanas and soak up some fresh North Carolina Highlands air. Be sure to take a dip in the outdoor heated mineral pool with a cave-enclosed whirlpool.
Our Inspector's Highlights
Old Edwards Inn & Spa features a couple’s suite complete with rose petals and candles for a romantic spa experience for two.

• Massages can be customized with your choice of aromatherapy massage oils.

• We love the seasonal body wraps, or cocoons as the Four-Star spa calls them. One of the most popular is the Sweet Mountain Meadow Cocoon, a body wrap inspired by the surrounding Carolina meadows.

• There’s plenty of spaces to laze around between treatments. Besides getting pampered, our next favorite spa activity is napping inside one of the plush relaxation rooms.
• If it’s too nice to go inside, make an appointment in the outdoor treatment area where you can treat yourself to a massage in the fresh mountain air.
