Vacations hold the promise of nonstop activity, excitement and adventure.

But sometimes they need to promise some downtime, too.

Here at Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort, we understand what our guests desire — and often it's the relaxing treatments and tranquil indulgence of Stox & Co. Spa. Right here on our property, you can swing in for a mani or stay for the works. With a variety of price points and packages from which to choose, the best thing you've done for yourself in a while is about to happen.

For on the go: You'd like some pampering but you don't have all day? Try a Signature Massage ($60-$95-$145) to get you relaxed or a Signature facial ($65-$95) for a perfectly healthy glow. Get the basic Manicure ($28) with expert nail care and polish color of your choice. Increase the package slightly and opt for the Spa Manicure ($38), which includes the nail treatment, plus exfoliation of hands and arms, warm towels and moisturizing massage. Want to make it something quintessentially Southern? Get the Sweet T Manicure ($48) that features their Sweet T sugar scrub plus an additional 10-minute massage.

For the ultimate day: This is where you hand your keys, kids and concerns over to your spouse and simply zone out. Indulge in the Ultimate Day package ($385) with a Spa Facial, one-hour Signature Massage, Spa Manicure. Spa Pedicure, shampoo with blow dry and a light lunch. For the men, try the Gentlemen's Escape ($225) featuring the Gentlemen's Facial and a one-hour Signature Massage. These are both game changers.

For the middle lane: You're not sure you can invest a half a day in your pursuit of zen, but you want to clock in more than an hour of time. The two-and-half-hour Pure Bliss treatment ($270) combines a one-hour Sweet T Massage with a Sweet T Facial, this is complete rest and relaxation. Also consider the Hydrating Souffle ($115), a moisturizing body wrap designed to leave you feeling hydrated. Have every intention of getting your hair cut or colored but you simply ran out of time? Stox & Co., has a full-service hair salon as well, where cuts (from $40 for women) and color (from $85 for a custom tint) come at the hands of their expert stylists and world-renowned Aveda products. You really will be returning from vacation looking like a new person.

For the beach goers: Wax on then most definitely wax off. Starting at $15 (brows) and going up to $100 (back). Also consider saving your skin from sun exposure with airbrush tanning by their team of certified spray tan specialists ($48), get a glow that is bronzed, beautiful, and best of all, safe. Note: talk to your aestheticians and specialists before combining services, as waxing may leave your skin more prone to irritation.

For the fitness buffs: Stox & Co.'s recently renovated Wellness Studio hosts all the latest, greatest, tested workouts designed to sculpt, tone or flex your body. Classes include ultra-hip barre, pilates, yoga for all levels, tae bo, and our favorite, shag dancing. Drop-ins are $15 (student, military and seniors are $10), private classes are $60 for one person, and shag dancing is $25 for one or $45 for a couple. See here for a schedule or to call the studio manager.

And to think all this can be yours and you don't have to leave the premises.
