Theme parks, ocean cruises, extended hotel stays; alone time or family outings at the beach and rich family experiences with relatives are the staples of many vacations.

Sometimes it’s nice to get-away and try something different. article, spa rosewood

Something very different and exceptionally fun can be a vacation spent at a spa retreat. Did we mention it is usually very relaxing and soothing as well?

The healing site shares, “Spa vacations for women are the ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation experience. And they are, by far, one of our most popular vacation ideas!

Spa getaways are the perfect way for friends, or moms and daughters, to relax, restore, and reconnect with each other. Lying on a chaise, having your feet massaged or getting a manicure, catching up with each other’s lives – that’s a great women’s vacation!

There’s nothing like a massage in a cabana on the beach; or maybe you really need a week away, for quiet meditation and renewal.”

Wonderful thinking. I couldn’t agree more.

Many of our beautiful female submission wrestlers live in Northern California so perhaps we can drive to destinations near San Francisco and recline at two mesmerizing spas.

The elegant site provides some heartwarming words.

The softly flowing site‎ gives us a nice massage and whispers, “Surrounded by the picturesque countryside of San Martin, Rosewood CordeValle is the ideal sanctuary for recreation and relaxation.

Therefore, it is only natural that grape seeds are a part of several signature and specialty spa treatments. Each treatment room also has a private garden designed to bring in the wonder of the outdoors.

The luxury spa experience begins with the healing tradition of using water, steam and rest to purify and revitalize the body. Both the men’s and women’s locker rooms feature a therapeutic whirlpool, which works to relax and revitalize the body’s systems. The next step in this ritual of rejuvenation is the steam experience, where fragrant essential oils infuse the air with profound benefits. article, spa rosewood article, spa rosewood
