The city of Charlotte, North Carolina, has many things to offer residents and visitors, but one of its favorite attractions is The Ballantyne Luxury Hotel and its many amenities, including The Spa at Ballantyne. This award-winning hotel also has 208 elegant rooms and suites, a four-bedroom cottage, and a lodge with 35 spacious rooms that are great for group retreats.

Featuring a menu with nature at its core, the spa treatments were designed to nurture your mind and body through various ritualistic methods, healthy products, and a calming environment. If you’re interested in a unique sensory experience guaranteed to soothe your senses and enhance wellness, this is where you’ll find it. There are many amenities and treatments, including a full-service salon, boutique, personal training services, saunas, indoor and outdoor pools, a relaxation lounge, a dining facility, and more.

Spa treatments and services include massages, body treatments, hydrafacials, nail services, hair services, and cupping therapy. The spa features more than 10,000 square feet of space and 18 treatment rooms — including two wet rooms and two couples rooms — a whirlpool, spacious locker rooms, and an upscale retail shopping experience. The hotel also features cooking classes, afternoon tea, wellness workshops, and more.

Here’s what you’ll love about it

Owners of Ballantyne luxury homes love having this resort and spa in their backyard because it provides a serene day that’s a wellness retreat. Spa guests can use certain hotel services with a specific purchase, which often encourages more time in the spa. Likewise, the hotel guests are offered particular services based on their stay, whether a couple massage or shampoo and blowout before dinner.

You’ll also love the separate lounge areas to relax before or after your service. These men’s and women’s lounges feature showers, a steam room, and a sauna. The areas offer several snacks, including hot tea and coffee, bottled water, and wrapped snacks like dried fruit and nuts, yogurt pretzels, and more. These are complementary and enjoyable any time during your visit. Spend at least $100, and you’ll have access to the indoor pool area, which has a large pool, two smaller lap pools, and a hot tub. The dining area features plenty of space for those who prefer to relax there with a healthy menu of delicious options.

Guests can enjoy various tasty menu options like guacamole and mango salsa, summer berry salad, grilled chicken Caprese, and dessert options. You can also choose white or red wine, champagne, beer, and specialty cocktails from the bar. However, giving at least 45 minutes' notice is recommended before heading to the dining area.


With expertly trained therapists and technicians, the spa remains focused on the health and wellness of its guests. All products are meticulously chosen with that in mind, allowing you to enjoy a relaxing and pampering experience in a safe and clean environment. Whether you’re getting your nails done, enjoying the salon, indulging in an Ashiatsu massage, or enjoying the fitness facilities, you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed.

Several unique treatments are available at The Ballantyne Spa, from classic favorites to splurge-worthy options. The Stress Recover Skincare Treatment is a fantastic service offered that features an LED therapy mask. Dr. Dennis Gross designed this treatment to build resistance to skin stressors and alleviate common symptoms such as dullness, flare-ups, and even worry lines.

The hydrafacial is a non-invasive dermabrasion treatment that combines the benefits of hydra-dermabrasion and LED light therapy with a choice of serums infused with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides that address your specific concerns.

If you’re not looking for a skincare treatment, consider the aromatherapy massage, a local favorite that features 80 minutes of blissful relaxation. An aromatherapy massage will take you on a journey through the senses as you relax and allow the sensations and aromas to take over.

There are several custom luxury services available too. Try one of the seasonal splurge treatments, such as the Carolina Lavender Collection, which includes a massage, body scrub, body wrap, and nail therapy. The “seasonal and special offers” menu features a unique selection of changing services. The purifying pumpkin facial is a brightening facial using pumpkin enzymes to decongest and resurface the skin. There’s also a spiced scalp treatment and shea butter foot treatment, both designed to warm the body and relax the mind.

Explore the services designed with men in mind as well. The arnica deep tissue massage is a therapeutic massage combining rich herbal oils and arnica extract to soothe muscles and ease tension in the body. The polished gentlemen's facial is guaranteed to have your skin feeling hydrated and polished, perfect to do before your next date night.
