Most Elegant Spa Lunch Menu...
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
Seasons Hotels and Resorts around the world are well known
for their excellent cuisine and the many culinary awards their
chefs have garnered. The exceptional chefs in Scottsdale at Troon
Lake are no exception. Their Four Seasons Spa Lunch Menu is fabulous!
With selections like Five-spiced Rare Ahi Tuna, Herbed Grilled
Asparagus Salad and Wild Mushroom Ravioli, calorie counting almost
feels like fun. Though you are spa-ing, we hope you'll allow yourself
a treat. Journeywoman did and thoroughly enjoyed their Sorbet
Cocktails -- assorted sliced fruit & berries plus a trio of
exceptional homemade sorbet. Presentation of food and setting
is as expected --white tablecloth, china, fresh flowers! Four
Seasons Hotels you certainly have Journeyman's vote for the presenting
the "Most Elegant Spa Lunch Menu".
Most Varied Spa Program...
The Phoenician's Centre for Well-Being
Phoenician's Centre for Well-Being stands out from
all the rest because of it's eclectic approach to maintaining
a healthy life style. On the surface, this luxury spa resort looks
and acts like other luxury facilities in the area. There's all
the requisite stress reducing massages and facials to choose from,
bowls of fresh fruit in the spa waiting room and collagen eye
repair if you're planning a big night out on the town. But dig
a little deeper and you quickly understand that there is more
here than meets the eye.
The Centre for Well-Being identifies
themselves as an adult environment of tranquillity and relaxation.
That means, in part, that cellular phones and pagers must be turned
off at all times, children of 16 and younger are not permitted in
the spa, and alcohol is definitely considered a no-no.
The Centre's overall programming
goal is to offer total well-being for guests -- in mind, in body
and spirit and this is the area that their eclectic programming
ideas come into play. Alongside conventional treatments, guests
can expect touches of Traditional Chinese healing (reflexology,
acupuncture, and acussage, a combination of acupuncture and therapeutic
massage). Add to these hints of New Age thought (a serene meditation
atrium, reiki chakra balancing, family yoga classes as well as astrology
and tarot readings ) and you begin to see why our JW award for "Most
Varied Spa Program" goes to this multi-faceted resort.
Nurturing Spa Service...
to the Inn at Camelback and their fabulous
massage therapist, Margaret who must have been an angel in another
life. Her one hour Hot Stone Massage, so wonderfully executed, made
me feel as if I was floating. Imagine Native American flute music
being played in the background. The therapist gently places small,
smooth, heated basalt stones in the palms of your hands and at strategic
pressure points under the stomach. The warmth radiates up through
your torso. She then proceeds to massage the body -- sometimes with
her hands sometimes with other stones that have been heated to a
Not a word passes between the
two of you as your aches, pains and stress points succumb to her
nurturing touch. Margaret ends her treatment with a wonderful neck
and scalp massage. By making the guest feel truly nurtured this
therapist elevates her Hot Stone massage from an exceptionally good
one to a gold-star great one!
