I had to cancel my trip to the European Spa Summit
and Beyond Beauty
show held in Paris this week. Bummer, I really don’t like to be a “no show” for something I had planned. But I am also trying to be less intense about work and more flexible when it comes to family matters. Peter had a recent motorcycle “mishap” as he calls it (I call it an accident) and ended up with some injuries, I decided I didn’t want to leave him for an entire two weeks. So I will be flying to London tomorrow night for the second week of my business trip but skipping the first which he had planned to do with me.
Sooooo, instead we decided on a romantic weekend getaway (not on the motorcycle thank goodness). We chose the new Bedford Springs Resort which reopened in July after a two year refurbishment that cost around $125 million. They added a 30,000 square foot spa called Springs Eternal Spa.
It was a 5 hour drive from New York city and upon arrival we went straight to the spa for our Hydromassage appointments. Wow….I was really impressed. The facility, the tasteful decor, the treatments, the relaxation room, Veronique the spa manager (who paid attention to every detail), and especially the “baths” with fresh spring water.
And what a great idea to have a Walnut and Ginger Signature Scrub in the “experience showers” – stop1 in a 5-station bathing experience. You can use as much as you want and as you scrub your body with this great smelling product….your body becomes totally exfoliated before heading into the steam room. From there, the sequence follows with a cool rinse and a long soak in the spring water. This one brilliant idea makes the entire bathing circuit so much more valuable and makes the Bedford Springs Spa special, generous and unique. They are already sold out every weekend.
