I never really need a good reason to go to the spa. Taking care of myself is beneficial to my health and to everyone else around me 😉 It may seem like a luxury to many, but personally, I see it as a necessity. One that sometimes helps me get through stressful times such as midterm exam periods. I actually just got through my midterms yesterday morning – alleluia! I have to admit that I had a bit of struggle in the days leading up to the exams. University midterms are on another level and ask for quite an adjustment. It felt like I was in a continuous whirlwind with back-to-back exams. Rest assured, however, I survived! Now, I have a whole week off to relax and enjoy the next couple of days!
The one thing that really helped me get through my studies at that time was a little staycation at the beautiful W Hotel where I was treated to a fabulous spa treatment at the Away Spa and a one night stay in a lovely and spacious room overlooking the city (their beds are soooo comfortable – I slept like a baby)! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my IG stories of my stay a couple of weeks ago. Their spa is absolutely INCREDIBLE and offers a wide range of spa services in the most relaxing ambiance – it’s a true paradise! After a full body scrub, I indulged in the extraordinary Mediterranean Ritual Aroma Soul massage which is inspired by the Mediterranean culture and practiced with nurturing wave motions. My boyfriend, being the athlete that he is, chose the 4-hand synchronized massage which is basically a normal full body massage times two. Can’t get better than that right?! And get this, with a valid student ID card, the Away Spa offers students 25% off any 60 minutes or more spa treatment from Sunday to Thursday. With prices like this, I like to think of it as a taking a well-deserved break without breaking the bank.
