Have you recently decided that you and some of your friends could use some quality time together? If you have, you may want to consider planning a girls’ day at the spa. After speaking it over with a few of your close friends, there is a good chance that everyone will agree that it is a great idea!
As nice as it is to hear that you can plan a girls’ trip to a day spa, you may be inquisitive about making the plans; what and what needs to be done and so on. This may be particularly true if you have never visited a day spa before.
We have strategically put up some guidelines for you. Please read on:
1. Scrutinize All of Your Options
Probing all of your options is important. No matter where you live, you should have at least a couple of day spas within the surrounding area. For starters, be sure to find a spa that can accommodate to you and your group. If you have more ten girls, you may be required to arrange a private party, as opposed to a traditional day spa visit.
It is also advised that you examine spa services offered as well. If you are looking for the largest selection of treatments, examine establishments that double as both salons and day spas. Here, you may be able to get a hairdo followed by a relaxing massage with your friends.
2. Know Who Will Be In Attendance
Before scheduling your appointment at a day spa, it is important that you have an exact total of those who will be going. There are some upscale day spas that require you to cancel your reservations within four-eight hours of your scheduled visit. If you cannot, you may be responsible for a late cancellation fee or you may still be charged for the whole session! That is why it is important to not count on those who are still saying “maybe.” If you must, add their names to the reservation list later.
3. Inspect Spa Packages
Most day spas offer guests a large number of packages. These packages often provide you with a full day or at least a half day worth of treatment. In addition to have everyone in your group pick out their own individual packages, you can also inquire about group packages or group rates. Some day spas have been known to offer them. Everyone in your group could receive something like a massage, facial, and body wrap all for one large price, which your group can then split the cost.
4. Be Sure to Have Fun
Most importantly, it is important to remember to have fun. You and your friends will want to be able to sit back and relax. Encourage everyone in your group to leave the “real world” and all of the stresses and demands that are associated with it at home. A girls’ day at the spa should be about receiving some much needed rest, relaxation, and pampering, together as friends.
As a aide memoire, be sure to make your day spa appointments or reservations well in advance. It is best to aim for two weeks ahead of time. Depending on the size of your group, special arrangements may need to be made.
