Expert staffers at Avia Spa pamper visitors by bundling Eastern and Western style massages with body-pampering services, ushering their guests into a zen-stuffed atmosphere full of indulgent amenities. A singular spa afternoon begins as guests pass a bubbling bamboo fountain and slip into a complimentary tearoom or dry sauna to begin relaxing before their service. Trained therapists then welcome guests into thatched massage huts that invoke a beach resort or tropical tool shed. In Avia’s signature treatment, the stone glow, a body scrub exfoliates skin, leaving it softened and smoothed. Under the gentle drizzle of a Vichy shower, therapists rest smooth, warm stones onto points targeted for relieving stress. Also relaxing, the nature and nourish wrap focuses on cleansing and hydrating the skin, scrubbing backs with coconut and chamomile salt scrubs before cocooning limbs in a coconut lime wrap. Afterward, a pressure point facial massage and scalp treatment restores the body’s natural balance, melting away tension from work and reading too many internet blogs that aggregate the backs of cereal boxes. Relaxed and rejuvenated, visitors can snag a Tanzania dark chocolate for the road, extending the decadent afternoon a bit longer.
