Women Empowerment: Sheila Johnson, Founder, and CEO of Salamander Resort and Spa
Updated: Feb 29
Are you tired and depleted from being overwhelmed and stressed? Self-care and relaxation are essential to our overall health and wellness. It is important that we make health a top priority in our lives. We recommend scheduling a stress-relieving time, particularly with a relaxing massage, a pampering manicure and pedicure, or a refreshing and soothing facial. It will revitalize and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. This week we are highlighting the Salamander Resort and Spa owned by Sheila Johnson. Ms. Johnson is the only African American woman to own a Five-Star Resort. She is not only the owner of the Salamander Resort and Spa, but also the co-founder of BET, and the first African American women to attain a net worth of at least one billion dollars.
The Salamander Resort and Spa is an equestrian-themed property that opened in August 2013. It is tucked away on 340 acres in Middleburg, Virginia. This picturesque and premier resort has 168 luxurious guest rooms and suites. It also has an incredible 23,000 square-foot spa and wellness center. There are treatment rooms, couple spa suites with a double-sided fireplace, a lavish infinity-edge heated pool lined with cabanas, a full-service hair and nail salon, and a fitness facility to get toned and fit. The Salamander Spa offers result-driven therapies to guide you to a fuller, healthier lifestyle. We are in awe of this spectacular establishment by Sheila Johnson. She encompasses all of the qualities of woman empowerment and successful business ownership. She is truly inspiring, empowering, and motivating. Make sure you check out their website!
