"Champagne, roses and chocolate have helped many a love affair blossom," remarked Umstead Spa Director Carolyn Doe. "and what better way to celebrate the month of love than with a relaxing spa treatment at The Umstead Spa infused with these “elements of romance?"

Spa-goers can indulge in facials and Swedish massages using champagne and rose treatments rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which are all excellent healing properties for moisturizing dry winter skin.
