The Spa at Ballantyne

Lavish pampering in Charlotte
For years, locals have visited The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge for its golf, but an overhaul of its palatial spa made it a true destination that draws people from not only Charlotte but from much farther-flung locales, too. A spa of this size wouldn’t be complete without a few luxurious amenities, and this one has them all, including indoor and outdoor pools, a whirlpool, fitness center, eucalyptus steam room, cherry wood sauna and a well-stocked spa boutique.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• All of the ambling spa — especially its men’s and women’s lounges — oozes a contemporary, stylish sophistication that at once puts you at ease.

• Each of the 18 treatment rooms — four of which have stunning views of the golf course’s 18th hole — has dedicated towel robe warmers and chromotherapy lighting.

• The Spa at Ballantyne prides itself on its Southern roots so it’s no surprise the spa menu draws from Charlotte’s rich Carolina heritage.

• The more than 50 treatments offered at The Spa at Ballantyne are based on four elements of Native American philosophy: earth, air, water and fire.
Things to Know
• Chromotherapy lighting in each room uses subtle changes of color based on your preference, making for an enveloping personalized treatment.

• Dishes on the spa menu use light, local ingredients and mouthwatering flavor combinations like the housemade turkey burger with a Greek yogurt bun or the kale salad with melon cipollini, goat ricotta, sorghum croutons, barrel-aged peach kombucha and white chia vinaigrette
The Treatments
• One of the highlights is the Jasmine Flower Wrap, an intoxicatingly gentle body treatment in which warm jasmine oil coupled with organic grains are used to exfoliate dry skin.

• The Carolina Lavender Package offers two unique treatments using lavender sourced from a nearby farm in York, South Carolina. Choose a massage or a body wrap using the lavender-infused oils and aromatherapy, which make for utterly relaxing treatments.

• The rest of the spa menu is filled with ample choices to relax and rejuvenate, including specialty massages, wraps, facials and salon services like haircuts, makeup application and all-important manis and pedis.
The Facilities
• A 24-hour gym is available for those who prefer to sweat their stress away. Professional personal trainers are also available to help you meet your wellness goals.

• Eight manicure and pedicure stations as well as makeup services are all available to top off a day of pampering.

• A relaxation lounge, sauna, steam room and both an indoor and outdoor pool provide extra relaxation pre- or post-treatment.
