It’s easy to work up an appetite while you’re doing the hard work of being pampered, which is why The Umstead Spa provides complimentary refreshments in the lounge areas. Hot tea or cucumber-infused water are available before or after your treatment. Likewise, you can help yourself to an assortment of dried fruits and nuts — including house-made spicy pecans.
You can also take advantage of the spa cuisine. Seasonal, local dishes with a healthful flair are available from The Umstead Hotel and Spa’s signature restaurant, Herons. While the menu changes to reflect the time of year, you can count on dishes with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. Best of all, if you make an appointment late in the morning or in the afternoon, you can order lunch in the spa from Sunday through Friday — just another reason to love The Umstead Spa.
