Price Tags

You'll find that Isle of Palms spas all hover around the same price point, but there are some that offer specialized services at higher costs. You'll also find some more unique spas that feature offerings you don't see everywhere. Wild Dunes, for example, offers $115 seasonal wraps that tempt the senses, such as chocolate truffle and pumpkin. Spa professionals here also offer ear candling, chocolate honey cake body treatments and micro-dermabrasion. This place has it all, from hair and nail care to men's and children's services.

Celebrity Treatment

If you don't mind traveling a bit to Charleston, lose yourself at Stella Nova. Get the celebrity treatment at its hip VIP Spa Suite. Included are butler services, warm tea, special treatment and catering options. It's perfect for bridal parties, as it gives you and your girls a chance to sit back and relax before the big day. Up for a long hard day of relaxing? Try Stella Nova's "It's a Beautiful Day" package, where you'll be pampered for six hours straight with a deluxe massage, facial, manicure and pedicure, makeup lesson and even lunch. It's not cheap, starting at $385, but it may be worth it to you to experience a day of beauty in historic Charleston.

Some spas, like Stella Nova, offer threading, which is supposed to be even more effective than waxing or tweezing. It's an ancient practice that involves twisting thread along an area of hair, removing fine hairs that other methods can miss. Many spas in this area offer herbal remedies and body lotions, and even sell their own lines of beauty products. You'll find many options on your stay in an Isle of Palms vacation home.
