Whether you’re in a relationship or not, put yourself first this Valentine’s Day! Self-love really can be the best love of all – it’s worth effort and it’s worth analysis. It’s a journey that takes dedication, devotion and practice & it is precisely the reason why this year SpaSeeekers wants you to rethink Valentine’s Day.
On this occasion, SpaSeekers hosted a Valentine’s Day event to celebrate female empowerment and self-love. Influencers from London were invited to the Radisson Blu Edwardian New Providence Wharf for an afternoon of pampering in the hotel’s tranquil East River Spa. As well as a selection of luxurious beauty treatments and full spa access, our guests took part in a mindful yoga workshop and enjoyed a bubbly afternoon tea.
Eboni: “The hotel was beautiful and modern with some quirky touches, which I loved. It was extremely peaceful and pleasant which carried into the spa.”
Natalie: “Usually in spas, the treatment rooms are quite compact, but the rooms here were bigger than usual, meaning you didn’t feel quite so claustrophobic. All were equipped with candles, showers, piles of soft fluffy towels, and a sleepy tune playing quietly in the background. I was ready for my muscles to melt and for my mind to totally relax!"
Eboni: “My massage was incredible. The masseuse was excellent, and I especially appreciated the heated beds, music and the aromas.
Natalie: “In the afternoon, I was led by the loveliest of therapists into one of the many treatments rooms and asked to smell three beautiful fragrant massage oils. I’m always drawn to things that smell of cinnamon with a slight spicy edge, so oil number 1 was perfect.” (Continue reading what Natalie hast to say about her spa experience here!)
Alicia: “Working at a laptop for 80% of a week along with a couple of ballet classes a week quickly creates tension and knots in my back…so obviously I opted to have a back massage and holy crap did I make the right decision!
“The only back massages I’ve previously had have been from friends or a physio, so to get one done professionally was amazing. The therapist I had was absolutely amazing and she focused on my upper back and shoulders, which is where I often hold a lot of tension. As the treatment went on, I could feel it just melting away. She used a combination of hot oil on the skin, as well as a hot towel towards the end of the treatment."
Eboni: “The yoga class with Alec was extremely enjoyable and rewarding. I love that he was able to help us almost one-on-one and he stayed at a level he could see we were comfortable with.
Eboni: “The afternoon tea was beautiful and extremely tasty! I loved the generous helpings of cake, they all tasted wonderful. I also appreciated the fresh apple juice and salmon sandwiches!"
