There is nothing like a relaxing day at the spa. We all need to be pampered! My friend Ginger and I went to the Stillwater Spa at the Hyatt Regency at Coconut Point for a day of girl stuff. You will have unforgettable treatments and therapies that will restore your body and enlighten your soul. They provide you with a locker, robe, towels and slippers. Get ready to attain peace, harmony and inner tranquility. We first went into the sauna then into the steam room. It only takes a few minutes until the sweat is pouring off you but it is supposed to clean your pours. They recommend no more than 20 minutes using any of the heat treatments. I think we came flying out after just five minutes! Next into the lounge for a glass of juice and to relax before we are called for our massage. We each had a 50 minute Swedish relaxing! You are escorted into a private, luxurious cocoon where an amazing scent of essential oils await you. Indulge!
There are many treatments available. From whole packages that takes about four hours to a fifty minute massage. There are all types of massages from the warm shell massage where smooth heated shells are gently guided over your body to an oil massage that stimulates your body's vital energy. The water shiatsu is done in a relaxing pool where the therapist moves you through peaceful waters in a rhythmic pattern that will stretch and elongate the muscles of the neck and spine. You free-float through the water while the therapist performs a Shiatsu-like massage to your arms, legs and back.
Also offered is a personal trainer in their fitness center for a complete body workout. The salon offers everything from manicures, pedicures, paraffin treatments to a hair cut and style, highlights and make-up application. You can have your teeth whitened or a spray body bronzing. It is a very complete spa. Many treatments and products for the men too.
In the outer reception, gift shop are many items for sale. A muscle joint reliever, bubble bath from Paris, herbal cleansers, body lotions, clay masks and peels, and body scrubs. There is an array of wonderful scents in candles. Find Yoga clothes and totes, caps with rhinestones. New York bubble bath, and Positano orange blossom bubble bath. This is the greatest, a cinnamon spa blanket, or a lush lavendar heat wrap, you warm it in the microwave for one minute and enjoy it for 15 minutes. How cozy is that?
It is a little pricey but not anymore than anywhere else and it is such a nice atmosphere and're worth it!!
Stillwater Spa is in the Hyatt at 5001 Coconut Road, Bonita Springs.
