The Spa at Chatham Bars Inn

A soothing Cape Cod sanctuary
The Spa at Chatham Bars Inn is the only Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa on Cape Cod, offering seasonally themed massage, facial, skin and body care treatments in a luxurious setting. Allow yourself to be pampered in the spa’s tranquil rooms, which have a Japanese-Zen-meets-Scandinavian-chic vibe, or rejuvenate in the privacy of a spa suite, each of which features an oversized hydrotherapy tub, a sauna, steam shower and fireplace, perfect for treatments in the comfort of your own space.

Choose from a range of therapeutic massages for yourself or you and a partner, add an enhancement or a body care treatment, and allow the aesthetician to finish up with a manicure, pedicure or facial. Take your spa day outside, too: the facility has an adults-only outdoor pool with a heated deck, a hot tub, lounge chairs and cabanas as well as a Japanese Zen Garden equipped with treatment cabanas.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • There’s a quaint New England look and feel with a modern touch, much like the rest of Chatham Bars Inn.
  • One of the more popular treatments, the Nirvana Stress Relief Massage uses aromatherapy and deep tissue techniques to alleviate stress and tension in the muscles, while rebalancing and restoring well-being.
  • The front of the spa opens up to the golf course, which in the summer is a beautiful view from the spa’s deck.
  • Unwind in several areas in the spa. During the warmer-weather months, enjoy outdoor treatments in the Zen Garden. Then in the cooler months, spend time in the newly renovated relaxation room.
  • Therapists’ go-to products are from Skinceuticals, a signature line providing science-backed advanced skincare, and Naturopathica, which uses safe, sustainable ingredients to support the skin’s natural function.
Things to Know
  • Advanced appointments are recommended, especially on weekends and in the summertime.
  • The spa is open to hotel guests and visitors over the age of 16, and its concierge can help you determine the treatments that best suit your needs.
  • You may request a male or female therapist and should notify the spa concierge of any medical considerations at the time of reservation.
  • The Cape Cod spa recommends arriving at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment to allow time in the newly renovated relaxation room.
The Treatments

  • As the name suggests, the spa’s signature Ocean Massage mimics the movement of the tides with successive waves of massage strokes from the head down to the toes. Warm stones help soothe the nervous system.
  • Specially designed to target the triggers behind unwanted redness, itching and stinging, the Ultra Calming Facial will restore and calm the skin.
  • The Sea Salt Scrub lets you take advantage of mineral-rich salts to polish the skin and cleanse the electromagnetic field that surrounds the body. A hydrating warm algae oil completes the service.
  • For an energizing option, try the Antioxidant Body Wrap. This hydrating treatment will uplift the spirits and bring a soft glow to your skin. It begins with an application of body polish to exfoliate the skin and is followed by a relaxing massage using warm stones and an anti-aging balm.

The Facilities

  • Plan to spend some extra time before or after your treatment enjoying the relaxation room, Zen Garden and the pool.
  • A selection of amenities is available in the men and women locker rooms: a steam shower, a dry sauna, soaps, shampoo and hair conditioner, razors and more.
