No this is not a new year resolutions post. We don’t believe in resolutions, we focus on goals. A mentor once said focus on the big rocks then worry about filling around them with smaller rocks and sand.
Our theme for 2016 is reboot and we will focus our energies on rebooting 3 aspects in our lives. Wish us luck!! and cheers to all of us!
From different kind of massages we choose the one with karite butter candle which heals the skin and of course with our luck we meet Rosy and her experienced hands they know exactly how to massage not too hard not too light just as it should be and her positive energy also change the athmosphere and how you feel, her smile too was relaxing and of course the warmth of melted karite butter was amazing.
You can gift some of this relaxed moments to your friends via this aromatic candles.
Rosy’s special karite butter treatment started with emotional shower then continued with bagno turco (hamam) and sauna then soaking in jacuzzi….
If you like you can relax few minutes before having your massage and finally the healing hands and karite butter of Rosy gives you the massage.
Also you can have very special dinner for two or cocktail at the roof top of the spa with wiev of San Vito beach and San Vito lo capo too. You only need simple reservation before to make sure it’s available too book. For a 3 star hotel their food is pretty much 5 star so enjoy the beauty of San Vito and Sicilian food.
We are posting from the beautiful beach of San Vito Lo Capo today!!
This is the best beach in Sicily and arguably in southern Italy. If you are a beach lover and can’t go to Maldives, this will do for now. For our Maldives paradise adventures see our past posts :))
The sea is clean, clear and gradually getting deeper. Buoyancy is high, the water is very salty. We love it like this!
The sand is very fine and light yellow. To rent a one um fella and two chairs roughly will cost you $12 euros. There are zones on the outskirts that you can just put your own chair and towel – but we recommend renting since they are situated in the best zones of the beach.
Our long time followers know about our Spa addiction. We have been in Spa’s around the world. See our past blog entries for Maldives, Seattle, Kohler, Thailand, etc…
In Lecce, we have been walking everywhere. When you walk all day long and have fun it’s important to rest and treat your body well. It will pay you back!
Our hotel Risorgimento Resort luckily for us has a lovely spa. It is perfect for after a long day of site seeing and travelling. We recommend that you book at least a day ahead.
Our favorite spa expert is Monica Valiani – ask for her by name. She speaks Italian, English, French, and German. We had spa services with her for two days and it was simply excellent.
Turkish Bath (Bagno Turco) after a good salt scrub on the entire body transforms your senses and starts the relaxation process. The emotional shower (rain, breeze) with special light therapy completes the whole treatment. We left clean, relaxed, and energized for our dinner party.
Next day we returned for facial and the special Cinque Sensi massage created by Monica. She designed this massage based on chackras. We loved it and our faces were radiating after the facial. If you want a couples massage ask Monica for her signature massage designed for couples.
The prices are middle range. For a great 50 min massage we paid €80. The Bagno Turco was €20. They have manicures, waxing, and many other facial and body treatments. You can also request something more tailored for your needs.
The spa is small but tranquil and you can reserve it for privacy. You will be surrounded by unobtrusive service and positive energy.
Monica – thank you for awakening our cinque sensi and make our journey even more special! Grazie mille!! 🇮🇹
