Home » Travel » I’ve become a Spa Junkie!!

I have friends who use to tell me that every time they went on vacation, they went to a different spa. I honestly didn’t “get it”. Well guess what? I’ve changed my mind. I get it now.

It’s been the YEAR OF THE SPA. Let’s review:

April 2010.  Mandarin Oriental Hotel – Las Vegas

The atmosphere is very “zen like” with Japanese inspirations  everywhere. I liked how all your treatments faced the strip so you could enjoy spactacular views while getting your treatments, relaxing, sitting in the jacuzzi etc.

See what I mean? everything faces the strip...

November 2010 – Ritz Carlton Palm Beach

This spa was truly gorgeous. I loved the color schemes, the furniture, the wishing well…even the little cupcakes. They thought of everything and I was SO glad the weather was lousy that day and I chose to go to the spa instead of the mall (I’m so smart). LOL

Ritz Carlton Spa - Palm Beach

March 2011 – Ritz Carlton Cayman Islands

This spa is one of the few spas in the world that is a La Prairie Spa…so I was intrigued. I had also hear that the caviar massage was well worth it but sadly my budget would only allow for a manicure. It was the first time I have ever had a manicure in a spa and indeed it was worth it. I took full advantage of the wet sauna, dry sauna and jacuzzi plus there were a few extra steps in the manicure that I really enjoyed.

A great spot to relax....

Next on my list: The Russian Turkish Bathhouse in New York City. I know I know..its not a spa but you know what I mean.

Now I need to discover Spas in Toronto. I’ve only been to one!!

    Oh my you are missing out!

    I love Body Blitz, The Elmwood, & The Old Mill in Toronto but if you want a little slice of paradise, you have to try Le Spa Scanadinave near Blue Mountain. I never wanted to come back home when I was done! I swear it is like Spa Crack. 😛

    Pure Spa at Park Hyatt is quite nice too!

    My dream would be to have a career reviewing all the spas in the world. Hmmm! Maybe we should talk about another blog idea….?
    I’m at Body Blitz on regular basis and will be there tomorrow morning. Join us if you can!

    Spa vs. mall — you probably even saved money by choosing the spa! I’ll report back on my facial at the Ritz Palm Beach and will make sure I try those cupcakes.
