Health & Beauty: We have a spa winner

By RoxyK

Over the past few weeks we have been searching for the “BEST” beauty range, spas, skin products, perfumes and many other delectable women treats.
I am proud to announce that The One & Only Spa is our first winner. This is certainly no surprise when you see the treatments that they offer and the amazing facilities. The whole journey takes you into a world of complete relaxation and a chance to simply unwind and just forget about your daily chores. Every treatment and client is treated special with a warm welcome by smiley, happy faces.

The spa is situated on a private island, away from the hustle and bustle. The moment you step out of the hotel and walk towards the spa, you are already calmed from hearing the trickle of water while crossing the bridge and the fresh, soft breeze that just adds to the idyllic ambience. Each client is greeted by name, which makes this more special and then you are guided by one of the ladies to the changing rooms. There are separate changing rooms for male and female and each one includes a steam room, sauna, hydro pool and toilets. There are ample fresh towels to use and the dressing rooms are clad with lotions, shampoos, hairdryers and all the necessities that you could possibly require. The changing rooms are comfortable and clean with an open locker for you. Fresh gowns and slippers are left in each locker, together with a yummy chocolate treat in a petite bag for you to enjoy or take home.

A stunning display of crushed ice falling on a stainless steel tray awaits one just outside the sauna. The crushed ice is massaged onto the body after you have been in the sauna. This aids in circulation and cools the body. When the therapist meets you for your treatment she introduces herself and takes you to the room. You are then seated, the treatment is explained and she asks about your concerns and the type of pressure you would like during the massage. Oils are applied to the body and the slow, rhythmic movement with warm hands just lulls your body into a state deep relaxation. The soft music adds to the unwinding process and facilitates in creating an outer body experience. Although other therapists are busy with other clients, there is no noise or loud conversations and this creates a slowdown of the mind and body.

The relaxation rooms are well catered with water, juices and herbal teas for your consumption. Little snacks such as muffins, fruit and biscuits are also available. There is absolutely no rush and the outdoor garden offers soft, comfortable reclining lounges to sit and relax. A cosy yoga pavilion in the garden is surrounded by beautiful flowers and shrubs, which is ideal place to relax or meditate.
This spa journey is unique and offers a truly unprecedented level of luxury. Careful attention has been paid to every detail to give each client an ultimate experience.
