Destination Gulf Coast: Relaxation at the Grand Hotel Spa

POINT CLEAR, Ala. (WKRG) – I’m Drexel Gilbert with your Destination Gulf Coast! This week we’re taking you to one of the most relaxing spots on the Gulf Coast. It’s popular with visitors to our area, but it’s also a great getaway for locals. We’re at the Spa at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear to show you that you don’t have to travel far to be pampered.

Our first stop is to meet Tiffany Cameron who is the Spa Manager at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear. Cameron loves that the hotel and spa is full of history from this area. But she’s also thrilled that the spa isn’t just for hotel guests but also for locals, who just want a day to get away from it all and be pampered.

“As a local, you don’t have to be a guest staying here at the hotel to experience the spa,” Cameron says. “We have day passes on weekdays if you just want to come and relax and use the quiet room, sit in the steam room or sauna, enjoy a glass of champagne.”

On the day of our visit, I was treated to three services. The first was the Ashiatsu massage which is an Asian barefoot massage. The massage therapist held rods mounted to the ceiling of the room and used her feet to massage my back and neck.

Then I had a Hydrafacial which includes the neck and décolletage. Very soothing! I almost fell asleep! And we capped off this spa experience with a pedicure overlooking the marina at the Grand Hotel. Wrap it all up with a few minutes in the Quiet Room, then a stroll along Mobile Bay. All in all, a great insight into the care offered at this beautiful historic Gulf Coast destination.
