Save Water with Green Earth Eco Towels
Categories: Towels , Spa , Bed and Breakfast
The cost of laundering towels for a bed and breakfast or spa can be quite sizable -- particularly in Western states where water is scarce and priced accordingly. If you want to save on laundering and spare the Earth too, take a look at our Green Earth Eco Towels.
The eco-friendly towels are incredibly soft and stylish and help to lower one's carbon footprint without sacrificing texture and style. Meticulously crafted in a state-of-the-art facility, the superfine extra-long staple cotton helps reduce the impact on the environment. As a result, these towels are 160% thicker and more absorbent than traditional combed cotton towels. They use less water, less detergent, and less time.
Warmest Robes for Coldest Winters
Categories: Robes , Spa , Bed and Breakfast
It may be cold outside... but not in here! Berkshire Amenities offers many warm bathrobes to keep your guests cozy on cold winter days and nights. There's nothing better for a guest than to step out of the shower to a fluffy, welcoming, robe. We're often asked which are our warmest robes. Here are our top three robes, in terms of warmth:
Plus Lined Microfiber Robes: Microfiber is a fabric that's often been used by outdoor enthusiasts because the material wicks moisture away from the body, helping the body to retain heat in cooler temperatures. Our Plush Lined Microfiber robes are very soft to the touch. The shell is made of true microfiber and the lining is 100% micro-plush polyester. The robes feel incredibly cozy and luxurious -- and are machine washable. We have these robes in different styles, like the Microfiber Shawl Lined in Plush and the Diamond Waffle Shawl Lined in Plush.
Terry Velour Robes: These robes are made from heavy weight 100% cotton terry velour, which is a knitted material that keeps the body warm and feels as smooth as velvet. It is also easily machine washable and comes in various styles -- some with fully lined hoods, others with elegant pinstripes, pleat backs and pockets, or shawl collars and piping accents.
Plush Lined Corduroy Robes: The word corduroy comes from the French phrase corde du roi, which translated literally means "cord of the king." The material is made of twisted fibers, making corduroy warm, breathable, and very comfortable. Our Corduroy Microfiber Lined Robe is made of 100% microfiber corduroy fabric lined in soft ultra-plush polyester. Like the others, this robe is also machine washable.
Still unsure which is the warmest robe for your inn or spa? We're happy to help! Call: 413-229-8200; dial extension 18 for Maria and extension 17 for Trisha or send us an email now.

Duck Island Toiletries Now Available
Categories: Spa , Bed and Breakfast , Company News , Toiletries
Berkshire Amenities Group is now offering the sustainable, luxurious, and environmentally-sound, Duck Island toiletries for inns and spas. The renowned British brand offers a lavish experience to guests while keeping a careful eye on the environment. Duck Island's bottles and caps are recyclable. All of the products are Paraben and Mineral Oil Free, and they're never tested on animals.
Duck Island's inspiration comes from an island of the same name, which has long since disappeared, though in 1734, at the height of its international fame and sophistication, it was described as "a paradise in miniature."
Duck Island formed part of one of England's oldest Royal Parks, located in the heart of London, one of the world's most fashionable cities. In 1664, the King of England, Charles II, received a magnificent gift of pelicans from the Russian Ambassador, and chose Duck Island as their home. At the time, pelicans were one of the most exclusive and expensive presents imaginable. They are the inspiration behind Duck Island's pelican motif.
Berkshire Amenities Group has added the following Duck Island products to its bath and body collection:

Sometimes everything is better in pairs ... that's definitely the case this February as Valentine's Day is upon us and couples treatments are experiencing a boost.
Looking for inspiration for your spa for February 14th? Here are some sample treatments that have created unique experiences in the past to mark this romantic holiday:
Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Couples Massage: At one spa, a chocolate-strawberry lotion is used to promote relaxation as couples are massaged side-by-side.
Berry Chocolate Pedicure: This little indulgence features a berry-exfoliating scrub and a chocolate hydrating mask, topped with a chocolate-strawberry foot massage, and optional painted toes.
Date Night: A spa getaway with overnight accommodations and full breakfast the next day. This just-for-couples experience includes an hour-long massage and dinner for two with a bottle of wine.
I'm in the Mocha for Love: This full-body chocolate wrap can be combined with cherries and chocolate for an antioxidant facial to moisturize and tighten the skin.
Delicious Duet: Unwind in a sauna then proceed to a Swedish massage. After a coconut vanillas body wrap and full-body dry brush exfoliation, enjoy a hot towel steam treatment, a warm cocoa butter hand hydration and mint scalp treatments, followed by a warm sugary foot scrub. There's even a souvenir -- a bristle brush and chocolates.
Spa Trend: Multi-Masking
Categories: Towels , Trend , Spa
It may indeed be a New Year but there still doesn't seem to be enough time. One of the top spa treatment trends for 2016 is multi-MASKING... and it's exactly how it sounds. Spa guests undergo multiple masks simultaneously, so they may address different concerns on different parts of their face and neck -- all at once. While multi-masking may not necessarily be new to spas, it is one of the suddenly trendy things to do this year.
In fact, some brands are tapping into this trend by packaging products as "duos" that help balance this and reinvigorate that, whether you're targeting the t-zone and the forehead at the same time, or working with portions of a guest's lips, cheeks and neck.
Spas that don't presently multi-mask, could quickly incorporate the trend, if they'd like, by pairing products, doubling solutions, and working key terms into the descriptions of treatments.

PS - Remember to double up on towels, you're likely to need them!
