Looking for a delicious, relaxing, fun-filled way to celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend? Hotel Revival, a boutique in historic Mount Vernon and Art of Balance Wellness Spa, a luxury wellness and cosmetic service provider, have an indulgingly sweet answer. The two have combined to offer “A Great Time for Two,” wellness cocktails crafted by the Revival team for guests of the spa.
“At Revival, we pride ourselves on providing unique and quality experiences to guests while also supporting the businesses in our community, and we see a great opportunity to join forces with the ownership team of Art of Balance Wellness Spa to do just that,” said Donte Johnson, general manager of Hotel Revival.
The special package, designed to provide a 24-hour lavish experience in Baltimore, includes VIP Car Service to The Art of Balance Wellness Spa in Federal Hill, a Parisian-influenced dinner and champagne toast for two prepared by award-winning Chef Ashish Alfred at Duck Duck Goose in Fells Point; along with an overnight stay at the art-infused boutique Hotel Revival, with transportation also being provided to those locations.
“We know it has been a challenging time for everybody,” said Jason Bass, Director of Culture and Impact for Hotel Revival. “We did not want to let Valen- tine’s Day go by and not let people have a way to celebrate the relationships we value even more. We also wanted to make it easy to find a way to celebrate these relationships right here in Balti- more. It’s also a celebration of 2021, and springtime which is almost here.”
According to Bass, “A Great Time for Two,” is drawing significant interest and is being well-received. As part of the partnership, the hotel’s bar team also crafted “The Balanced Cocktail,” a signature beverage for guests to enjoy following all treatments and services at the spa.
Art of Balance Wellness Spa is a luxury medical and wellness spa located at 801 Key Highway at the Ritz Carlton Residences. Founded by two board-certified female physicians, Dr. Nia Banks, and Dr. Aderonke Omotade, the two opened the spa with the goal of providing guests with a first-class and holistic wellness experience.
“We were very excited about the opportunity when it was presented to us by our rep with PROFILES,” said Dr. Banks, referring to PROFILES, a PR, marketing, communications, and events firm based in Baltimore. “I was familiar with Hotel Revival and its historic location in Mt. Vernon. We thought this opportunity would give us good exposure, and bring in hotel guests to the spa. The hotel is beautiful, and we are excited about the partnership.”
She added, “The great thing about the package is that it’s not only for romantic partners. You can come with your mom, sister, or friend. It’s a great time for two. The beauty of the package is that it has been curated especially for Hotel Revival. It is a very customized and unique experience.”
Dr. Banks is the vice chairman of the department of Surgery at Doctors Hospital in Lanham, Maryland; a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons; a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery; a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society; and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
“People can expect a wonderful time,” said Dr. Banks. “We want them to feel well-cared for, comfortable, valued, and worth treating themselves to this experience. We want them to see they are worth treating themselves to experiences like this not just on special occasions, but should take care of themselves all the time. We are looking forward to having Hotel Revival guests here at Art of Balance to enjoy their spa experience.”
