The Aspira Spa

I’m a true spa aficionado. For those of you who shrink at the thought of a stranger touching you, think “Pat Down at Airport Security.” Believe me, the touch of a professional masseuse is infinitely more relaxing.

At the Osthoff Resort’s Aspira Spa, I enjoyed a Moroccan Hot Oil Massage. My masseuse, Serena (what a great name for a masseuse!), drizzled hot oil on my skin, followed quickly by rubbing it in. The only negative about the treatment was that she wasn’t a hot Moroccan…

The most memorable area in the spa was the dimly-lit Meditation Room. Designed in a great curve, the rounded walls created an aura of serenity. They say that corners cause stress. Comfortable banquettes hugged the wall, while in the middle, a round shallow pool was surrounded by tea candles.

When my group went for a light, healthy lunch in the Aspira Spa Cafe, we noticed that one woman was missing. Someone eventually found her asleep in the Meditation Room. To me, that’s the ultimate spa experience.

  1. Thanks for sharing Aunt Eleanor! It looks so relaxing, kinda wish I was there. Since I’m not I will re-live through you……;) I Can’t wait to see where you go next!


  2. This is an article for Michele. She is exactly what you discribe about being sensitive with a masseuse. We had experience a hot spring water spa in Arkansas and it took some doing to get here there. But she finally did and admitted enjoying it. So I will share this articale.
