[ADV] The Afternoon Spa Retreat at St. Gregory
Friday, 13 Apr 2012
So you are always looking for an excuse to try an award-winning spa, especially one positioned in a high-end hotel… we know the feeling well. The good news – we have the perfect excuse for your ticket on highway Pamper Me Please.
Here it is: The Afternoon Spa Retreat at St. Gregory.
Let us explain.
You book in for your choice of a facial (choose from St. Gregory Soothing Facial or St. Gregory Purifying Facial – both 75 mins) or the Aromatic Body Bliss Massage (50 mins) or both – more on that later. And after you are pampered, plumed and preened, you float your way over to the hotel café for a five-star worthy afternoon tea of canapés, scones and desserts accompanied by tea, of course.
And it’s ah-mazing value.
The Afternoon Spa Retreat promotion starts this week – its just $242 per couple, all in (aka nett, no plus plus)! Oh we like!
Of course, being responsible journalists we just had to try it, and from the moment our therapist May Qu said to us “slowly, slowly,” as she guided us through the tranquil spa, we were already in absolute heaven.
We tried the St. Gregory Soothing Facial, which is a real S.O.S. treatment for sensitive and reaction-prone skin, rapidly bringing comfort, softness and calm using products from Thal’ion, a marine-based product line.
Our facial started with a ritual of various movements including the fanning and rocking of our bodies, rustling of the towel beside our ears, and spraying of the marine mist on our feet. In line with the marine origins of Thal’ion, these movements are meant to simulate the sights and sounds you may feel or see at the beach e.g. the ocean breeze, sound of the sand rustling beneath your feet, raindrops and so on. Whatever they were meant to do – it seriously deepens the tranquillity before the treatment commences.
Another sure way to make a blissful afternoon just that wee bit more blissful, is to start your facial after a massage, combining the two treatments … when the additional treatment is just $98 it is silly not to!
So book in now, with your girlfriend, guy friend, hubby or stranger, cause this promotion ain’t going to last – and it really is the perfect excuse… because we are sure you will be walking away as we did saying to ourselves, “Ah, it’s just the most perfect afternoon…. ever”.
