In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Opal Spa at Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa will offer a 50-minute Pink Hibiscus Massage for $99 during the month of October. A portion of the proceeds from each service will be donated either to Susan G. Komen or to a local chapter of the American Cancer Society. 

This Swedish massage is a treat for the senses, with notes of pink hibiscus, vanilla and blood orange wafting through the room as you enjoy a dose of bliss that will leave you feeling rejuvenated in mind, body and soul. The massage is intended to be both physically soothing and emotionally recharging, giving you a chance to detox and destress. 

Ready to re-tox? Sip a glass of sparkling rosé, included with your Pink Hibiscus Massage. For even more pampering, book any of The Opal Spa’s other luxury treatments, which include  massages, facials, reflexology sessions and ocean-inspired body treatments.
