The Family-Owned Property Introduces a Holistic, Appalachian-Inspired Spa Experience to the Bristol Region


Nicewonder Farm & Vineyards (Bristol, VA) recently debuted its new spa and wellness space, The Spa at Nicewonder Farm & Vineyards. The spa offers an array of nature-inspired wellness offerings and treatments unique to the Virginia Highlands destination.

Set among the property’s lush greenery with picturesque vineyard views, The Spa at Nicewonder Farm & Vineyards provides guests with innovative treatments and therapies to embark on an immersive and deeply relaxing getaway. Holistic techniques, such as facial cupping and gemstone therapy, are seamlessly met with state-of-the-art facilities to create the ultimate restorative and healing experience. Signature treatments include:

  • Reveel & Reset Collagen Age-Defying Facial: Based on the skin’s biological system of signals and responses, this clinical facial enables the skin to reveal its full potential. German-made formulations feature high-quality active ingredients to optimize the skin, revealing the ultimate glow.
  • Nicewonder Farms Signature Massage Retreat: Starting with a full-body exfoliation, this signature treatment is the ultimate relaxing experience. Meditative, guided stretching is next, followed by a customizable full-body massage. Additional treatment enhancements include body cupping, herbal packs, and targeted reflexology foot massages.

Upon arrival, guests are instantly transported to a calming oasis with white design motifs, oak wood flooring, warm light fixtures, and an abundance of natural light streaming in through ceiling skylights. Constructed and designed by BurWil Design, the dome-shaped yurt structures are connected by elegantly lit arches and hallways, creating a seamless flow of movement for guests to travel from one of the seven treatment rooms to the saunas and showers. A relaxation lounge occupies the second floor, while an outdoor wet deck provides access to soaking pools and lounge chairs. Guests also have the option to book treatment rooms that feature private outdoor spaces with deep soaker tubs.

“We are thrilled to introduce The Spa at Nicewonder Farm & Vineyards as a new luxury spa experience in the area,” says spa director Nichole Stewart. “Our holistic approach to wellness includes treatments inspired by the beauty of our surroundings here on property, offering a range of treatments that utilize natural and locally sourced ingredients.
