After a hectic work week for both myself and my husband, we both could not think of a better way to enjoy our day off but to treat ourselves to a Couples Retreat in honor of this upcoming Valentine’s Day. The day could not have come sooner for our appointment and every minute of it was as heavenly as it was anticipated to be.

Today was our day to enjoy the Couple’s Retreat Valentine’s Day special at the SiSpa located at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort.  The Couple’s Retreat takes place in the cozy, luxuriously modern couple’s treatment suite equipped with a sitting area and two massage beds side-by-side. To start, our his and hers world class licensed massage therapists invited us to choose from a variety of Zents brand aromatherapy body oils. I chose SUN which is warm and sensuous scent with hints of vanilla, sweet orange, grapefruit and sandlewood. My husband was looking for something more invigorating and chose OOLONG with hints of lavender, lime blossom and ylang ylang scents. After our selections were made Monika and Nikolai, our designated Massage Therapists team left the room to give us some privacy while disrobing.

The ambience of the room was perfect. Candelight, warm beds, low lighting and subtle relaxing music in the distance. Nikolai and Monika asked us our massage preferences beforehand. Time went by quickly while we each relished in blissful swedish massages from head-to-toe.

The finale to our massages was a chocolate exfoliating treatment for both the hands and then the feet using a warm chocolate exfoliating scrub. The scrub was slowly and gently massaged on and then removed with a warm, soft cloth leaving our hands and feet soft and smelling luscious. 

While the scent of chocolate lingered, and just when I thought it does not get better than this, a tray of chocolate- covered strawberries and champagne for two was presented to us in the sitting area. Nikolai and Monika encouraged us to enjoy some alone time now and left the room while David and I celebrated with a champagne toast.  We topped off our SiSpa experience with a kiss while noshing on irresistible chocolate-covered strawberries. David says, ” the Couple Retreat is definitely pure pleasure that brings couples closer together” and I would definitely have to agree.

The Unity Massage Experience at the Ritz-Carlton Spa Key Biscayne

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today was my most memorable massage experience to date. Sure I got to enjoy the surroundings of a luxurious spa with all the spa goodies like whirlpool, steam room, fitness room, and sauna. But this time was different because I got to enjoy it with my husband, David.  

We found ourselves embarking on an interactive spa experience like no other. The Unity Massage is a new concept at The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Key Biscayne.  It is a treatment, an enlightening interactive experience, and a lesson all-in-one. While enjoying a relaxing massage administered by a Licensed Massage Therapist you can learn massage techniques and aid in the spa experience that your partner is enjoying.

Anja Vie, our Massage Therapist is a skilled professional with 20 years of experience and offered us a wealth of knowledge that she shared with us for 50 minutes of fun, learn and de-stressing. Anja, with me as her “assistant”, gave David a relaxing massage using the Baborganic Wellness Candle, that doubles as a massage skin balm. Step by step, Anja showed me how to massage David’s shoulders, neck, face, back and legs. So while David got to enjoy a massage, he also got to enjoy that I was helping in the process. Also, he could look forward to future massages at home with my newly learned skills.

Next it was my turn to get massaged. David seemed to be well practiced at the art of massage. Anja was quite impressed by his skills and she said he was a “natural”. David assisted Anja and learned new skills at the same time giving me a soothing massage to the feet, neck and back. He tried out his new thai stretching massage techniques, some reflexology on my feet and swedish massage using his fingers, elbows and hands.

Anja’s was happy to share her vast knowledge with us by answering any questions we had about massage. The experience was so enjoyable, that 50 minutes seemed to flash by.

The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Key Biscayne gave us the Baborganic Wellness Candle used during your massage as a gift to take home with us. We both can’t wait to try out our new skills on each other for future enjoyable experiences to come. David says it was a tremendous experience the he won’t soon forget. I feel it brought us closer together and was something extraordinary we could share together.
