The ultimate Relaxation, at Pure Indulgence, Divi Phoenix Beach Resort

We were invited on Saturday for a pampering session at Pure Indulgence at Divi Phoenix Beach Resort. We, meaning the Pica Girls, my radio partners Tabitha Fecunda and Jacqueline Wernet. We obviously like each other and we spend quite some time together in the studio at 96.5FM. But Saturday afternoon was special, as we enjoyed four-hours of self-centered renewal and rejuvenation, which we all needed and deserved, according to Angie!

The spa overlooking the pool and the beach is gorgeous, new, modern, with floor to ceiling glass windows. It was designed by spa owner Angie Wallace, with attention to every detail. Angie put all her creative energy into the space, having run spas in St Martin and Aruba for at least ten years.  This girl knows what she is doing, she knows what it takes to unwind and untangle the knots in our backs, the wrinkled on our faces, nothing like a therapeutic massage, graceful hands and elegant feet, she says.

We were greeted with a flute of mimosa, and invited to stick our feet into a lovely foot bath with rose petals, each. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it was actually very nice, to lounge in a comfy, soft robe, midday: Cool champagne rolling off my tongue, warm water on my tootsies.

The spa protocol designed by Angie is long and rich and layered. There is something delicious happening every minute. My massage started face up. Osiris, the therapist worked on the back of my neck, my chest, arms, and legs, then flipped me over gently and did the same thing on my other side, neck, back, arms, and legs, fifty minutes of relaxation. I was aware of my surrounding, immersed in a sort of non-REM sleep that delivers melting muscles and zero thoughts. The spinning wheels in my head came to a complete stand still.

Later in the Mani-Pedi leather upholstered chair, a kind of recliner, lazy boy throne with automatic massage system, armrests, foot rests, and whirlpool bath, we looked at the beach, and the pool, while having our nails done.  The treatment included all kinds of exfoliating potions and hydrating lotions, including paraffin baths, and resulted is soft skin, and gleaming nails.

The sun was setting when I left the spa, with a pink rose. As I said before, Angie Wallace pays attention to every detail.
