So this year instead of my traditional jewelry or a Louis Vuitton
handbag my husband wanted to shake things up for Christmas. Enter the
most fabulous gift ever! A day at 3 of my favorite local spas Casa
Palmero at Pebble Beach, Aquista at the Hyatt Monterey and Vista Blue at
the Monterey Plaza Hotel and one at the Surf & Sand Resort in
Laguna Beach. He seriously knows what I like.
So not one to waste time, I booked Casa Pamero first and right after the
New Year to refresh and start my resolution off right. I went for the
Walk in the Forest package, a 50 minute facial, 70 minute massage and a
body scrub. I added in the Water Experience since it looked great and
I arrived a few minutes early and was treated by the front desk staff.
She checked me in (a little trouble with my name) and oddly processed
my payment right away. Weird since I had a card on file and had been
here numerous times, plus I wanted lunch and a perous around the gift
shop. After I paid (gratuity too! Since they add that auto 20% and in
advance!?) I was met by the locker attendant... seriously the hardest
working person there. She showed me through a super cute fireside
lounge and into the locker area. After changing the magic began.
