Chocolate Pedicure in The Spa for Young Girls

Hi!  My daughter, Dani, just had an amazing experience in our spa.  She tried the Chocolate Pedicure, which is very popular with our younger clientele.  I watched her enjoy, so I will tell you a little about it.  After she settled into one of our state-of -the art pedicure chairs with the heat and massage on, she began soaking her feet  in pink water  with salt and pomegranate solution. This made her feet soft and receptive to the rest of ...

New Awning Leading to Soda Shop

Hi!  We just had our new awning, which covers the walkway from the Spa to the Soda Shop, installed and it looks so nice!  It is a very natural sort of dark beige color that really suits our new look that we are moving towards.  Instead of featuring a lot of teal we are going to a natural look throughout the property with more neutral colors.  In fact, I am happy to report that we just ordered new lounge chairs ...

Mango-Passion Fruit Manicure

Hi!  Lucky for us Tropical Storm Isaac is passing us by.  We have had some rain and light wind, but that is it!  Being stuck indoors for a couple of days was difficult (especially with 4 kids), but I chose to make the best of it by  visiting The Spa for a Mango-Passion Fruit Manicure.  I would have loved to try the pedicure, too, but I did not want to leave my oldest in charge for too long..... During this ...
