Someone had to go...wish it had been me, but alas, I couldn't leave the kids. Guess who got the job? Someone with both more time and more disposable cash on her hands: Grandma! Lucky girl. Here's what she had to say...(Caution: Grandma's writing style is highly "stream-of-conscious"...just go with the flow!)
"Luxuriate!...It’s the only word that can express a day at the Kingsmill Spa.
Put on a luscious white fluffy robe...waited in a tranquil reading room (what? I'm actually taking time to lounge here and read a paperback book?) to wait for treatments. Massages take place on heated pads with warm blankets; rooms are kept a wee bit cool, but the heated pad, warm oils and hot river stones are sooooo refreshing...
Time for the facial. The charmingly helpful attendants only use the most exotic cleaners...then exfoliate and moisturize. While they mist my face, delicate fragrances add to the delight...
Finally, a pedicure and manicure -- primped on every end. Top it all off with a hot wax hand dip that seems to reach the marrow of my bones. Scintillatingly delicious!
Practically floating to my charming room, I spent the evening at the resort. The spacious rooms overlooked the James River, where I was treated to a breath-taking sunset (no extra charge). Still floated, I fell into a luxurious bed, pilled high with a feather comforter and pillows.
Would I go again to Kingsmill Spa? What do you think? Go! I couldn't have been more pampered and the staff couldn't have been more gracious and skilled. No doubt, when you arrive, you'll be stiff with tension, pressure, or stress. No worries. By the time this efficient staff finishes, you won't have a care in the world..."
(Thanks for the review, Mom. Next time, YOU take the kids and I'll go...)
