Ocean Place Resort & Spa in Long Branch, N.J., has completed its $4 million renovation on their spa. The remodeled space now offers oceanfront views of the Atlantic, spa treatments, a full-service salon, a fitness center, indoor pool with a heated soaking tub and an outdoor pool with a Jacuzzi.

The Spa at Ocean Place offers a range of ocean-inspired treatments including massages, scrubs, wraps, herbal soaks and facials. Popular treatments include the Fire & Ice Facial and a selection of Sebastian Kneipp Herbal Soaks.

The 14,000-square-foot spa now has 13 treatment rooms, some with soaking tubs and three of which are made for couples. They also offer steam rooms and his-and-hers lockers. They have reimagined the design of the spa, which now features calming tones and ocean-centric décor.

Customizable packages, including those for bachelorette parties, are available. Selections can include meals, overnight stays, exclusive use of the spa and even yoga on the beach. For additional information, head to oceanplace.com.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
