The upscale spa is set to open next to Wegmans in the spring of 2012.
The Spa on the Boulevard is the latest business to sign on for what is shaping up to becoming Harford County’s most popular shopping center: the Boulevard at Box Hill.
Abingdon resident Amanda Nazelrod, who serves as the general manager at the Spa in the (Hunt) Valley sister location, will take the same position at the new business. It is already under construction and set to open next to Wegmans on the east end of the plaza in the spring of 2012.
“The main focus for Box Hill will be on couples and detoxification,” Nazelrod told Patch. “So this will be our first salon and spa that will have two couples rooms and will have the ability to do a massage in the room and two separate Jacuzzi tubs the clients can use after their service, so that way they can enjoy each other’s company.”
The Abingdon-based location will be about 10,000 square feet and also offer hair care, skin care, massages, body treatments and nail care, Nazelrod said.
“We will also be having a ritual that will be complimentary before any spa service and it’s based on detoxification,” she said. “It starts with a series of warm and cold Vichy showers. It’s rain-like jets and massage-like jets [to remove] any toxins throughout the body.”
The spa will feature a garden room where clients will be served delivery lunch from a to-be-determined eatery, Nazelrod said. She added that the décor will have a “French country” theme. There also will be stone and “medieval iron work.”
The Harford County resident said she is excited to be running a spa that will be a short drive down Maryland Route 924 from her home.
“We decided that Box Hill would be a great location for it,” Nazelrod said. “It’s right close to where I live, so it will be nice to have the community visit us. … The people in Abingdon and in Harford County are so down to earth and I can’t wait to have them as clientele.”
