So I managed to get out of the house yesterday without any kids tagging along... *except for the one in my tummy ;)
I was invited to visit the Kohler Waters Spa in Kohler, WI. It is located right next to The American Club. All I can say is wow. From the moment I drove into town I felt relaxed and stress-free! The entire town is beautifully taken care of, a sight in itself if you ask me. This spa couldn't be more perfectly located! I now know why they call it "Destination Kohler". I still can't believe I have lived 10 minutes away for over 8 years and have just finally discovered it!
I had an appointment for a Classic Facial at 9am, so I arrived at about 8:30, checked in, and headed to get changed into a luxurious robe in the locker room. Since I was early, I had some time to relax before my first appointment began and I decided to head to the glass enclosed rooftop deck. There is a gorgeous fireplace and 2 whirlpools alongside some very inviting lounge furniture. It was the perfect starter to my day of relaxation!
My facial was decadent! I have problem skin and always worry about sensitivity to products, but everything that she used on me was so gentle and was compatible with my specific skin issues. The ambiance in the room was incredibly relaxing. The lighting was low, the soft classical music in the background, and the heated table that was fully adjustable (and very comfortable) all helped to soothe me into a restful state. During my facial, I was also treated to a neck, shoulder, and hand massage along with a foot rub and moisturizing foot mask. By the end of this hour long pampering session, I couldn't even imagine my day getting any better. Seriously, could anything really top that?
After my facial, I headed upstairs to get my Neat Feet Pedicure. I was treated to a warm soak, lime salt exfoliating scrub, and warm stones between my toes. After a cooling mask had some time to work it's magic, I was finished off with a leg and foot massage followed by a pretty pink polish. I even got to take the bottle home with me!
Even though both of my treatments were finished with, I still did not have to return home. I could stay and use the spa amenities for the entire day if I wanted. There was a gorgeous relaxation pool with a waterfall, whirlpools, a sauna, a steam room, and refreshments throughout the building like water, fresh fruit, and nuts, just to name a few!
So, you are probably wondering what this all has to do with saving money, right? Even a couponista needs some pampering!
