This has truly been a great week for me! Saturday I had a surprise engagement proposal which was amazing (take a look at the video on my last blog post “The Proposal“), Sunday was spent with family, and then Monday was spa day for myself.
I was so glad that I was able to relax and enjoy myself at the Red Door Spa. My now fiancé Dominique presented me with a gift card to the spa for my birthday in December, but I haven’t had the time to schedule an appointment until now. This was my first experience at any spa, so I was really excited. I couldn’t decide on which services to choose because they have so much to offer and everything sounds amazing. I eventually chose the Signature Escape with Massage package, which included a 50 min massage, manicure, and pedicure.
I loved how all of the employees were very attentive and helpful since I was a newbie. They led me to the changing room to change into their signature robe, which I might add was extremely soft and comfortable. The slip on shoes were great as well!
Once I locked up my belongings, I proceeded to the relaxation room and waited for my massage service. I loved this room’s aroma and appearance, the everyday magazines, and that they offered beverages.
It took about 5-10 minutes for my masseuse to come and get me. I was led to a room and chose my massage oil scent preference and then the service began. It was beyond amazing! I contemplated a lot over if I should get a massage done when deciding on the spa services, but I’m extremely happy that I chose it. My shoulders and back were very tense so the massage was much needed and it’s a service I would definitely look forward to doing again.
My manicure and pedicure was amazing too. The whole spa experience really made me feel relaxing and like luxury. The only disappointment or flaw was the billing procedure. I ended up being charged more than what I was supposed to but the red door spa employees did fix the error. For the most part my experience was great and I think I will be back.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Spa Day
- Do enjoy all of the little things the spa has to offer especially the quietness.
- Don’t be shy with your massage. Don’t make the mistake of coming in with your bra on under your robe! (my mistake, haha)
- Don’t bring your phone with you if you’re really trying to relax. You’ll get distracted as I did, but this experience had to be blogged!
- Do try as many services as you can, only if your pockets can handle it haha!
