After a hectic holiday season, we’re checking in to beachside bliss at the Golden Magnolia Resort in Flagler Beach. Located just steps from the Atlantic Ocean, the intimate resort is an oasis of calm and serenity. There are nine guestrooms—most with garden, ocean, or pool views. Each room is well appointed and features premium bedding. Resort perks include two pools, bathrobes, beach towels, and more.

If you’re an early riser, we recommend popping over to the beach to watch a spectacular sunrise. Then, return to the inn for a delicious chef-prepared breakfast in the dining room. Prefer snuggles over sunshine? Sleep in and enjoy breakfast in bed, instead. Either way, it’s all included with your stay.

Ready for relaxation mode? Golden Magnolia’s on-site spa is a zen retreat complete with a temperature-controlled mineral pool. The spa menu includes lux offerings like massages, facials, body treatments, manicures, and pedicures. Services like waxing and tinting are also available.

When it comes to massages, Golden Magnolia’s therapists have the golden touch. From traditional deep tissue to more unique healing treatments, there’s an option for every need and comfort level. Our pick is the warm bamboo massage. Slip into bliss as sore muscles are kneaded with heated bamboo stalks, resulting in increased circulation, relaxation, and peace of mind.

Looking to revive your skin after time spent in the Florida sun? Opt for a revitalizing facial or body service. The Salt Glo Exfoliation and Sedona Red Clay Full Body treatment begins with a dry brush exfoliation to eliminate rough and flaky patches. A mask made of red clay, sea salts, and other essential oils is then applied to the body to detoxify and hydrate.  Next, lose yourself in a guided relaxation, followed by a shower and 60 minute hot oil massage.

Choosing between a massage, facial, and mani-pedi can be stressful—the last thing you want on a relaxing holiday. We suggest booking a Golden Magnolia spa package for the best experience. The “Day of Rejuvenation” option features a 90 minute massage, 30 minute hand and foot reflexology, a stem cell facial, and a spa pedicure. Lunch and a glass of wine are also included. The entire experience lasts for five and a half hours—you’ll leave feeling refreshed and at peace.

Whether you’re just stopping in for a spa treatment or enjoying a full weekend of pampering, the attentive staff at Golden Magnolia Resort is dedicated to providing you with a luxurious experience. Make 2022 the year of you with a spa trip to Flagler Beach.
