What better to do with a lazy Saturday than head down to Atlantis for sun, sea and spa. For the next 2 months Atlantis are offering a ‘Pamper Me’ package that includes a 75 minute Aromatherapy Associates treatment (foot and back scrub and full body massage) followed by lunch at Nasimi and access to the Zero Entry Pool and Royal Beach – win, win, win!
Arriving to the valet and swiftly dropping the car, we meandered through the extravagant lobby of the Atlantis Hotel into the glamorous and decadent Shuiqi Spa, where we were greeted warmly and given a run-down of our day (of heaven) ahead! After the quick brief, it was down to the changing rooms, where guests can make the most of the spa facilities on offer including sauna, Jacuzzi and steam to really get you into relaxation mode!
When you are suitably relaxed you are led through the step stoned waterways of the Shuiqi spa to the well dressed and sensationally turned out treatment rooms – the sounds and smells reminiscent of a rain forest! With smooth tones playing through the speakers the treatment begins with a relaxing deep foot and back scrub to freshen up the skin, followed by the main event – the massage! Once upon the message table the masseuse acclimatizes the pressure to be in perfect harmony with your body as you drift into pure relaxation! After 75 minutes of purer bliss, you are left to unwind and gradually make your way back to full awareness, which is aided by herbal tea and assortment of waters and snacks in the relaxation room.
En-route back to the sun-kissed skies, you are furnished with some complimentary Aromatherapy Associates gifts – all the more to remember the experience by! The next part of the experience is the pool and beach, which can be enjoyed either side of lunch, which is served up at the infamous and uber cool Nasimi Restaurant, where you can pick from your choice of starter, main course and dessert, whilst kicking back to some chilled house beats!
With both the Zero Entry and Royal Pools to choose from, there is no need to worry about saving that lounger – there are plenty to choose from, whether your vibe is chilling in the shade or in full view of the sun aka Tan Time! As the day meandered towards sunset, we were left feeling recuperated and ready to return to the crazy world ahead. It may be a day experience, but you will feel like you’ve had a mini staycay and those batteries will be truly refilled! For more information, please visit www.atlantisthepalm.com.
