A Relaxing Couples Afternoon

I spent an afternoon here with my wife as a way to just disconnect and relax for a little bit. We had the couple’s massage package, and added a pedicure to the day as well. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. We didn’t find a sour staff member in the whole bunch, and we felt like we were very important to them. Love that. We were taking right back to a seating area where we were offered something to drink and to fill out some paperwork. As soon as that was completed, we were taken to the pool area, where we had our hour of just relaxing by the pool with chocolates and champagne. The pool is at The Avenue Hotel up on the third floor, so it’s not just for the spa to use. Not a huge deal, but the pool was pretty busy yesterday with families / kids. We still enjoyed the hour of doing absolutely nothing! It’s just not totally quiet, either. Besides the pool, there is a hot tub, sauna, and steam room. It was a nice hour. On to the massage. The room was very quiet, the lights were dim, the aromatherapy was good, and we had an excellent session. Both therapists were very good, and we had an excellent session. We did not opt for any of the add-on services. Finally, on to the pedicure. This is the one spot where we really felt that the day was a bit off. Again, the two ladies were very pleasant and the session wasn’t bad, but it felt a bit rushed. There were two others in the room waiting for their turn, and our technicians kept checking the clock. I’m not sure we even got a full half-hour, and compared to pedicures we’ve gotten at nail salons, this was not nearly as “relaxing.” I’m normally offered a clear coating on mine at the end, and I did not receive that. We both felt this was probably the one place that wasn’t worth the money that was spent for the day. Would we be back? Overall, yes, we’d be back. We’d certainly do the package again, or at least the massage for couples part. I’m not sure we’d do the pedicure part again though.
