Wedding Testimonials at the Crescent Hotel

Allison Brooks & Ben Scott – October 2, 2010

Why did you choose a Destination Wedding?

Our friends and family are spread across the country, no matter where we held our wedding, we knew the majority would be traveling.  We loved that our wedding became a mini-vacation for everyone to a unique and magical town.

How did you meet Ben?

Ben came for an interview at the Architecture firm where I was working.  Within minutes I told the Principal Architect that Ben needed to be hired as he was going to be my new boyfriend.  We all laughed it off, but 5 years later, he’s now my husband!

What was the most romantic moment of the day?

It had to be the first moment that Ben and I saw each other during a private photo session before the wedding.  The weight of months of planning and chaos just lifted once we got to hold each other.

What was your experience with the Crescent Hotel & Spa?

The team at the Crescent Hotel was of great assistance, and proved that even the smallest details mattered to them as much as it did to us! The Spa treated us with grace and provided amazing services – we all looked absolutely gorgeous!

Katie Holland& Mike Adams – September 5, 2010

Tell us about the proposal.

For my birthday we had dinner in the Crystal Dining Room of the Hotel.  It was so romantic because were the only ones there!  After dinner, he got down on one knee and proposed.  I sat in shock for 10 min and then began to cry…..for 45 minutes more!!  Looking back, I should have caught on with all the signs and how nervous Mike seemed…..but I’m glad I didn’t!

What do you love most about your husband?

He is the most humble and honest man I’ve ever met.   I am a better person because he is in my life; where I lack, he fills me in.

What was your favorite part of the wedding?

That’s a hard one, probably when Mike was taking off my garter and he discovered it was a Razorback one.  I love surprises and I love that cheesy tradition!

Why did you choose the Basin Park Hotel?

There were many reasons we chose the Basin; the beauty of the building and the Ballroom coupled with the location, being in the center of everything, was more than perfect!  Also, my experience with Management was wonderful.

What the New Year can bring to you

New Year/New You Spa Package

Arkansas Spa shifts its winter focus towards Beauty Services and Renewal

Eureka Springs, Arkansas has a long history of healing and rejuvenation. In recent years this focus has seen the emergence of an array of Day Spas and Salons making it Arkansas’ signature spa destination.  Today, this spa evolution continues and expands into a less clinical approach to beauty and renewal.  Traditional emphasis on such Beauty Services were linked to cosmetic surgery, botox, and painful peels and services, however the spa industry in Eureka Springs and specifically THE NEW MOON SPA has found a less clinical, and more relaxing, way to find renewal…. but one that deeply transforms.

Forwarding a Concept of “New Year – New You – New Moon”, The New Moon Spa of Eureka Springs has identified the start of the year to promote its new approach to beauty.  “We wanted to provide a path that incorporated ancient healing modalities and combine these with more modern salon services to address our clients desire to look and feel beautiful; both inside and out” said Spa Director Kimberly Owens “The New Year-New You spa packages does just that”.  During the two-day stay at the Crescent Hotel & New Moon Spa, Spa guests enjoy the off-peak serenity of a Mountaintop Spa Resort with specially designed services to focus on beauty and personal enrichment.  Beauty Services include Hair Color, Cut & Style, Teeth Whitening, Microdermabrasion Facial with Glycolic & Oxy-mist, Mint Body Wrap as well as a Chardonnay Grapeseed Manicure & Pedicure.

Guests who book the New Year/New You Spa Package in January, also receive two midweek nights at the hotel and daily breakfast absolutely free!!  The New Year – New You spa package is just $626.25!
