Begin your summer morning at this world renowned 40,000 square foot spa, and wind down with therapeutic, results-oriented body and skin care services designed to promote ultimate inner and outer wellbeing. All services come with a day pass to Atlantic City’s only co-ed bathhouse, ideal for relaxation, detoxifications, and socialization. Breathe in the air of our Himalayan Salt Grotto, sink into our heated pool, purify in steam rooms, saunas, hot tubs and lounge with a refreshing beverage. Day passes are also available at $55 for resort guests, and $70 for non-resort guests. Book your service here or call 609-783-8700.

Eclipse Pool (hotel guests only)

Did you know, if you are a non-resort guest enjoying an Exhale Spa + Bathhouse day pass, you also receive access to the Eclipse Pool? Start your summer morning off taking a swim in Ocean’s family-friendly indoor/outdoor pool, and take in views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Go for a summer morning stroll.

Sometimes, the best way to wake up is a walk-through nature. Head down to the beach for an early morning stroll and take in the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. Who knows, you may even see a family of dolphins on an early morning coastal swim!

For a less sandy option and breathtaking views of the ocean from the 11th floor, we suggest a stroll alongside blooming flowers and local foliage at The Skygarden, located on Ocean’s lobby level! There is plenty of seating available, so if you packed a few good books for your Atlantic City getaway, this is the spot to cozy up and read them.
