Maine hotels, resorts offer spas for luxury massage, body treatments, more

What could enhance the bold, spectacular beauty of the Maine coast? Try this: a visit to a spa -- for a day, a weekend getaway, or any amount of time you choose -- to enjoy massage, Jacuzzi, facial, body wraps, rubs, and more, in spa treatment rooms overlooking the sea. Sound good?

Maine hotels and resorts offer day treatments along with packages and deals for overnight stays. Their glamorous spas overlook or are situated on the water, from Kennebunkport to Rockland to Bar Harbor. The natural beauty surrounded the resort spas is matched by the fabulous man-made structures (the Bar Harbor Club, for instance, is in a Tudor-style building visualized long ago by the Rockefeller family).

Spa treatments are fun for romantic couples, individuals, mother-daughter excursions, and girlfriend getaways.
