The next day of our Mother/Daughter trip was Spa Day! We slept in a bit, and then headed up to the 13th floor to The Spa at Hotel Contessa! The spa is one of the reasons I chose the Hotel Contessa -- it was one of the few hotels on the Riverwalk that had a spa within the hotel. I wanted to be able to roll out of bed and just stroll up to the spa. It worked out perfectly!
The Spa was very kushy and nice, and they treated us so well! We both got deep tissue massages, and I must say that it got a little painful at points. I think we had a lot of toxins to be removed! Deep tissue has its purposes, but I think I'll stick to Swedish or hot stone massages from now on!! I almost cried a few times!!! We were both mush afterwards! I enjoyed experiencing this with my Mom...
|We were each ushered into our own bathroom/changing area...|
each one had a shower and toilet, along with a basket of plastic flip flops,
towels, robes and lockers for our belongings.
|Once we got changed into our robes, Mom and I met up in the lounge |
area to fill out some paperwork. I had a cup of hot tea while we waited.
Then our ladies came to fetch us and off we went!
|The massage rooms were very nice and relaxing...soft music, relaxing colors, soft blankets.|
|After our 50 minute massages, we met back up in the lounge area |
and melted onto the couch like total mush! Ahhhh...
|This was my perfect little nook -- I loved it! So comfy and shady. I need one of these!|
