Healthy Holy City Hotel Amenities You Never Knew Existed

Healthy Holy City Hotel Amenities You Never Knew Existed

Going on vacation doesn’t mean having to forgo your fitness goals when in Charleston! The Holy City’s hotels offer a wide variety of healthy hotel amenities, from complimentary bicycles to rejuvenating spa treatments to harbor-side yoga. Scroll on to discover some of our favorite spots to stay while keeping your health and wellness at top of mind.

P.S. We are not recommending you pass on taste testing Charleston’s buttermilk biscuits… or shrimp & grits… or iconic desserts. It’s all about balance, right? 😉

This luxury hotel is perfectly situated in the center of Charleston's downtown district, offering spectacular view of Charleston Harbor and the city. Yoga is offered on the rooftop terrace on Saturday and Sunday mornings with The Dewberry resident yoga expert. From beginner to advanced postures, instructors will lead you through a series of asanas with the backdrop of the Holy City. Following your workout, rejuvenate with a relaxing service at the hotel spa. 

Check into Belmond Charleston Place and take full advantage of the spa, pool, cutting edge fitness center, sauna and steam room. Guests not staying at the hotel, but receiving a spa treatment, have access to the steam room and sauna. INSIDERS TIP: The Tata Harper Nothing But Nature Facial is a must!

Stay at The Spectator and experience old-world charm with a modernized twist along with an array of amazing healthy hotel amenities including vintage bicycles to explore the city and a private yoga session followed by a 60 or 90 minute massage in the comfort of your room. While enjoying your session, the hotel's professional trained butlers offer to pick up a nutritional smoothie, grain bowl or other healthy meal of your choice and deliver it to your room once your session has concluded. Be right back. We're checking in!
