Grand Velas Spa Day

Last month I got to experience the spa at the Grand Velas resort hotel and it was nothing short of amazing. I did a full blog post about our stay earlier but I wanted to cover specifically the spa because it was so incredible. I had my first real spa experience when one of my best friends took us to one as part of her bachelorette party in college. I’ve never looked back. The smell of tea and mint, the soft music, the plush robes, the silence and serenity. Needless to say it’s been a vice ever since and I am constantly on the lookout for an incredible spa.

The Grand Velas hotel was the best spa I’ve ever been to. And that makes sense since it was named “Best Spa in the World” by Virtuoso in 2010. We were welcomed with refreshing juice, then escorted to our lockers to change into robes and get ready for this full spa experience. This overview doesn’t do it justice but I’m going to try…

First was the sauna paired with cucumbers for our eyes and a cold towel over our face. It was instant relaxation.

Second was the ice room: This was a large room with reflective light blue tiles on the walls, ceiling, floors, and luxurious benches. It was cold but in the most refreshing way. I honestly think whoever dreamed up the ❄️ winterfresh commercial did so after visiting this room. It was like an adult version of frozen! Let it go!

Third was the Color therapy steam room: this was a large circular room with steam and soft slow changing lights. I felt my pores open and my body melt into the bench. If the attendant hadn’t alerted me to the time limit, I’d probably still be there.

Fourth was the clay room: we each got a portion of clay to put all over our bodies and our faces. I’ve actually never had a mud bath but my skin felt so soft afterwards!

Fifth was the polar pools: these were two long pools about knee deep. Jets massaged my legs as I walked all the way down and then back.

Sixth we’re the waterfalls: the water fell smooth and heavy on my shoulders and completely massaged my back and neck.

Seventh was the bubble volcano: in the corner of the pool large jets massaged our legs and helped circulation

Eighth was the water bubble bed- one of my favorites. A large stone bed is in the deep end of the pool and I could lay on it and my body was just a bit out of the water. It was Devine!!

Needless to say it was the most therapeutic and enjoyable spa experiences ever – heaven on earth 🙂 Afterwards we laid by the pool and sipped more of the refreshing juice and mint water before getting ready for dinner that night. Oh how I want to go back!
