The last few months of my life have been hectic. From moving across the county, loosing the job I had lined up, to being a nanny again, and so much more I really needed to have time for myself and RELAX. Even if it was for an hour! Thanks to Royal Palms Resort & Spa, I was able to get some time to myself and relax with a beautiful spa treatment. Now know you live in Arizona when you can visit a resort during the month November to relax and not freeze!! Sorry to my friends on the East Coast!!
The Alvadora Spa if you didn't know, just happens to be The Valley's top Spa! Recently the Alvadora Spa added some new elements to their regimen and I am so happy to have tried them out! My spa treatment at the Alvadora Spa at Royal Palms Resort & Spa was one that I will never forget! The Alvadora Spa has recently added some new elements to their regimen and I am so happy to have tried them out!
1.A complete interior 3 month design re-fresh, which gives me all the Mediterranean feels is absolutely stunning. Even though the spa is 11,000 square feet, you still gain the sense of intimacy and tranquility throughout.
2. Rachel Sloat who happens to be the In-House Herbalist. She uses Apothecary and plants, herbs, flowers, roots, citrus and berries that are sourced locally from the Mediterranean making this type of service the first of kind here in the Valley. Rachel offers custom botanical treatments and small- batch hand formulated products.
With a In- House Herbalist comes new treatments! The Alvadora Spa now offers 2 new treatments:
1. Coconut Milk & Honey Wrap (50 minutes, $175): Coconut milk and local honey come together in a sweet-subtly spiced aromatic blend of essential oils and mushroom extracts with warming sweet notes of vanilla and cardamom. Guests will experience a deeply hydrating body treatment wrapped in warmth as the benefits of antioxidants, minerals, enzymes, and distinctive fatty acids nourish the skin
2.Olive Stone Scrub & Wrap (80 minutes, $240): An herbaceous body treatment to cleanse and remineralize, the Mediterranean Olive Stone Scrub and Wrap is formulated with French green clay, sea salt from Spain, olive stone, infused herbal oils to promote healing and an aromatic fusion of Mediterranean essential oils.
With the weather changing, my skin has been going crazy so I decided on the Coconut Milk & Honey Wrap! My skin was SO moisturized and it definitely thanked me afterwords.
Post treatment I was able to explore around this exquisite Mediterranean retreat, and eat pool side from the Cabana Cafe! Royal Palms Resort & Spa is a member of the the Historic Hotels of America and is nestled at the foot of Camelback Mountain, is a AAA Four Diamond Resort is also home to the award winning T. Cooks restaurant and is minutes away from art galleries, open air shopping centers and museums.
