Beach resorts have long seen the value in creating Kids-Only Spas – usually offering mom and daughter packages that cover everything from massage (bathing suit mandatory), to cucumber and chocolate facials, colorful manicures, and tootsie treats, often served with scoops of ice-cream.
When this crossed my desk, it seems that the ‘big city brands’ are finally extending kids amenities beyond pint-sized robes and coloring books …. After all, if you get ‘em young, you have them for life, right?
Check these latest offerings for teens, tweenies, and even younger:
