From October until the New Year, our plates are full of hosting, prepping, traveling, gift buying, cooking and so much more. With all the stress and non-stop action, it’s important to remember the most important thing: taking care of yourself and quality time with family. We want to offer a few ways The Willcox can help relieve stress during the holiday:
  • Trip to the Spa: A deep tissue massage can be the answer to all your holiday stress – Take advantage of a 60 minute massage for $80 and 90 minutes for $110. If you’re really wanting to relax, add in DoTerra Aromatherapy Oil like a relaxing lavender scent for only $10!
  • Date Night: Take a night off of holiday planning to enjoy a date night at The Lobby Bar. Have fun tasting new wines or crafting your very own Manhattan by choosing your whiskey and your specialty bitter.
  • Romantic Escape Package: The Willcox is the place to escape for a little alone time and rejuvenation. Relax in front of roaring fires, play outside in the perfect temperature and enjoy the change of the seasons ahead. With rates starting at $160 per night, indulge in a bottle of champagne upon arrival, enjoy an intimate dinner for two in our award-winning restaurant and luxuriate with a couples massage. Get more information about our Romantic Escape package under “Romance & Spa” here:
