spa at the hotel where we were staying, I thought I'd book us a little spa package.... so worth it!
You start off in a sumptuous lobby area and are then separated (boy's side and girl's side). You're led into a locker area where you get a towel and your own pair of slippers. Clothing is optional in the spa area (I opted for coverage), and then you're shown around the different baths. You get an hour to wander around and enjoy everything from 4 different hot tubs at various temperatures, to a variety of salt soaking baths, to dry or wet sauna rooms, and then a choice of different showers from a full body power wash to a muscle-pounding waterfall shower.
At some point during your "bath time," one of the assistants takes you into the treatment room for an exfoliation. It's a combo salt, oil and warm shower massage which leaves you tingly and ready to go back to the baths. All around are extra towels, water or mango iced tea and fresh fruit. You can sit and soak or lay back on a lounge chair and relax.
After your hour is up, you're given a robe and told to undress before heading upstairs to your spa treatment area. I met my husband on a landing which overlooks the fountains, pools and beach in front of the hotel. We sat and sipped water on lounge chairs while waiting to be called for our treatments.
Soon a pair of assistants called us into our own private room for the rest of the afternoon. There we had the most amazing exfoliation and wrap treatment followed by a scented oil bath and then a luxurious hour-long deep tissue massage. We came out of the spa feeling buffed, polished, smooth as silk and as relaxed as we could possibly be at that moment... then the real fun began!
