Oooh, I love a pamper, especially when I can share the experience with my hubby, and this Couples Spa Experience Package certainly delivered the bliss I was after!
After a little lemongrass tea and once we were in our soft robes, the experience started with a divine lavender foot bath and scrub. It’s very unusual holding your partner’s hand while you’re both having your feet exfoliated, massaged and sent to foot heaven. We were both in la la land when were were softly directed to our massage tables.
We both commented that the soft surface and rounded edges of the massage tables were the best we’d ever felt under us! A thorough hour of massage, cocooning in warm towels and mint, alpine and desert creams sent us drifting. At this point, hubby was on cloud nine and snoring but this is one experience where napping is permitted and actually a good sign of complete relaxation.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, warm oil was brushed onto my feet and in between my toes – what an incredible sensory experience! Finally, a new level of joy with a hot oil scalp massage.
What a pity such experiences have to end! At least we were allowed to slowly come back to reality on the lounge with some aromatic lavender tea.
This is a completely intoxicating experience and a wonderful thing to share with a loved one.
