In the Pacific Northwest, it’s all too easy to suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder during the winter. Even spring’s longer days sometimes feel like an excuse for more hours of rain and fog. Doctors from the Mayo Clinic suggest the benefits of relaxation, exercise and getting outside: “Take a long walk, eat lunch at a nearby park, or simply sit on a bench and soak up the sun. Even on cold or cloudy days, outdoor light can help—especially if you spend some time outside within two hours of getting up in the morning.”
All of these are a breeze at Quinault Beach Resort and Casino in Ocean Shores. Escape to their lush bedroom suites where you can relax listening to the ocean’s roar from in front of your in-room fireplace. Then enjoy decadent local dining before an evening free from workday chores. Sleep in, have breakfast and then walk the sandy beach before your massage appointment. However you schedule your day, a Spring Fling may be just what the doctor ordered.
Sunshine and warm breezes—even if it’s just a break in the rain—guarantee a bad case of spring fever. Mark Twain could have been describing the Pacific Northwest when he commented, “In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”
But thanks to the Spring Fling package at Quinault Beach Resort and Casino, you can treat yourself to a stolen slice of summer no matter what the weather. From March 1 through June 15, visitors who use room code SPFL can receive a two-night stay, $50 spa credit and $50 toward dinner at Emily’s for under $275 on any stay Sunday through Thursday.
Once there, grab a coffee at Fireside Espresso or quick bite at the Sidewalk Bistro. But save room for dinner at Emily’s, awarded best fine dining restaurant in the county. When you book your Spring Fling visit, it’s always a good idea to make reservations for Emily’s at the same time. Do this online or by calling 888-461-2214.
Then it’s time to explore. Visit the gaming floor slot machines and table games, but first register at the Q-Club window for your free membership. Game play earns points toward special offers, gift drawings and discounts resort-wide.
Hotel rooms and suites can feature stunning ocean or wetlands views, fireplaces, Native American artwork and jetted tubs. As with many of their packages and specials, stays often include dining vouchers, festival or event entry, spa treatments or even champagne.
Sometimes getting away from the humdrum grind of daily life recharges your mental and physical batteries. This is especially easy when you surrender to the skilled massage therapy at Quinault’s on-site spa. Whether you choose a 25-minute customized Deep Balance massage, 55 minutes under massage flame candles, or a full 85-minute Seaside Escape, your newly centered self will be grateful.
The resort also boasts an indoor heated pool, jacuzzi and fitness center for guests. The pool looks out onto the beachside dunes and offers family hours from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and is adults only from 9:00 p.m. until midnight.
Located at 78 State Route 115 in Ocean Shores, an easy drive from Tacoma, you can book your stay, dinner reservations, spa times and more by calling 888-461-2214. Bring your spouse, best friends or just yourself and kick spring fever to the curb with a delightful—and much needed—spring fling.
