Luxury Living: Elemis Spa In Coral Gables
Overseas it's all the rage with the a-list crowd...and it's just now crossing the pond. Elemis is the name. it's a mecca for rest and relaxation. Belkys Nerey take us there tonight in this Luxury Living report.
(WSVN) -- Madonna and Guy Ritchie induldge in the Royal Thai Ceremony...
And Kate Moss and Kate Winslet love the skin nourishing milk bath...in England, celebrities can't stay away from the Elemis Day Spa...
"Good morning welcome to Elemis."
But you don't have to be a celebrity to get the royal treatment. The exclusive spa recently opened in Coral Gables at the Village of Merrick Park. This the first free standing location in the U.S.
Elemis Sr. VP Operations, Amanda Francis says, "I think once somebody has had the Elemis experience, I think that you know it's something they want to repeat and repeat."
Everything gets started here in the Calming Lounge...this is where you wait for your therapist to come and get you for your treatments and you begin to get in that Zen state of mind.
Amanda says, "The moment you actually enter our day spa, you're walking into a sanctuary."
They call it a spa but it gives you a Temple-like vibe.. Buddhas and candles put you in the mood for pampering and serenity....
Amanda says, "I think that we are the Rolls Royce of therapy, and that's the difference when you come in here, all the treatments that you're going to choose are going to be tailor made for you and totally exclusive."
What kind of treatments?
How about a Japanese Silk Facial...where an actual piece of silk is placed on your face..so when you're finished your skin really is as smooth as silk.
And while you're here you can always get stoned.. Elemis' Aroma Stone Therapy combines heated rocks and oils for a feeling that's simply sinful.
If you want to feel the warm nurturing feeling of floating on water without getting wet, try the luxurious Dry Float Bed Treatment.
Amanda says, "People will leave feeling rejuvenated, relaxed, they're also going to have a vigor in their step, and most importantly, they're going to want to come back."
Manicures, rose petal pedicures, scalp massages --- Elemis even carries it's own line of all natural and therapeutic products....
Who needs to travel overseas when you can take a 2 hour journey to Elemis that'll leave you feeling brand new.
