Tranquil Tuesday: TradeWinds Island Grand, St. Pete Beach

ADD TO FAVORITES

My pick for this week's Tranquil Tuesday escape is the Body Works Salon & Spa at the TradeWinds Island Grand in St. Pete Beach. As the Tampa Bay area gears up for the Republican National Convention, don't forget to pencil in a little spa time. In fact, why not make a vacation out of it?

The spa offers such services as warm stone massages, chocolate wasabi facials, aromatherapy and body wraps. I recommend the "Just Let Go" full-day package, which includes:

  • Full body massage
  • Facial
  • Manicure
  • Pedicure
  • Lunch

You'll never want to leave the property because this seaside escape has it all: seven swimming pools, 25 acres of pristine beach access, a water park in the Gulf of Mexico, tons of activities for the whole family, 15 restaurants and lounges, and super-friendly staff.

Impressive fact: Did you know that recently the resort was named an autism-friendly business by the Center for Autism & Related Disabilities? The TradeWinds is one of just five hotels in the United States that have received the designation. 

Labor Day Weekend Special: On Sept. 2, celebrate the end of summer with a beach party, deejay, island buffet and fireworks show. Book your end of summer vacation now and receive a three-night package starting at $582, valid from Aug. 21 - Sept. 4, 2012. Guests wanting to extend their stay can add additional nights to the package for 50 percent off rack rates.
