Sigmund Freud reminds us that “being extremely honest with oneself is a good exercise”.  That honesty can of course assume countless forms  – one being recognizing the need for rest and renewal.  After summer’s full days (and perhaps full house’s) September is the perfect time for a day trip to refresh and restore as the seasons being to shift.  Just a short ride north of the city sits the southern New Hampshire town of Newcastle – a coastal hamlet and home to The Spa at Wentworth by the Sea.

Just as each season brings new opportunities for growth and change, our Portsmouth Day Spa offers a hand-picked selection of seasonal services designed to address your body’s changing needs.

From soothing massages and restorative facials to stylish manicures and pedicures, the Spa offers a number of day and weekend packages to be savored either solo or with a best friend.  Their menu feature a number of “enhance me” type packages designed to serve guests a “perfect revival” along the ocean.  Included in many of these specials is their popular Rose Chardonnay Body Scrub which begins with a sugar scrub to exfoliate and invigorate and finishes with an application of the Spa’s signature, locally made body cream leaving skin “glowing and flawless”.

Inspired by the natural beauty and serenity of our coastal surroundings, The Spa at The Wentworth invites guests into a tranquil sanctuary dedicated to health and wellbeing.

And, for guests looking to make a day or more of pampering the Spa offers the Wentworth Signature Ritual which includes a blend of an 80 minute Body Renewal or Perfect Massage, an 80 minute facial, a 50 minute manicure followed by an 80 minute pedicure.  The Wentworth Signature Ritual concludes with a crisp glass of Champagne and lunch at one of the property’s waterfront dining rooms.

The Spa at Wentworth by the Sea is open daily and is located at 588 Wentworth Road in Newcastle, New Hampshire – just outside of Portsmouth. Appointments can be made online or by calling: 603-422-7322.
