About 2 weeks ago I was tucked away at the Eden Roc Renaissance’s Elle Spa for a little bloggers relaxation day. Iâ€™m already thinking of my next visit. It has such a warm, inviting, and homey vibe. I immediately parked myself in front of the windows overlooking the wate and everyone else followed suit. Aside from being right in front of the fireplace, itâ€™s clearly the choice spot.
I love the Plant the Future decor at the spa. Sidenote, they make Munnyâ€™s and robot figures like this, how cool right. I love the Elle magazines everywhere, a given of course. From the fitness center, to the gift shop theyâ€™re conveniently placed for your pleasure and complimentary of course. A big mantra from the massage and facial experts was for me to drink lots of water and I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever been more hydrated in my entire life. There was always someone to make sure I was getting plenty of the good stuff.
I received the Elle Spa Signature Facial which is their â€œmost luxurious facial experienceâ€ it was designed exclusively for Elle by famed beauty expert Tammy Fender (who also sat with us later on in the day for a incredibly informative chat). I got to pick the essential oils used during the session, the foot reflexology was so good I fell asleep, and the facial itself was choice. I see why itâ€™s the best of the best. I also did the Flash Glow which I expected to just be a exfoliating body scrub but my massage expert noticed some tension in my shoulders and neck (thanks blogging) and really got in there and worked that out too. Going the extra mile to work on a problem area always seals the deal for me.
Amanda and I wrapped up the day braving the plunge pool which is apparently really good for you but a little more than I can handle. Iâ€™m a baby. It does refresh the heck out of you though. Then we headed back up to the Spa Terrace where weâ€™d all had lunch in the private cabanas (they have tvâ€™s!!) to chat, lay out and have exotic mimosaâ€™s. Our bartender was the BEST!
