Feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated after a beautiful spa day yesterday at the Ritz Carlton located in Fort Lauderdale. It was the perfect way to start the weekend and a busy week right before Christmas. I really needed a spa day after traveling and working non-stop on new projects. The minute we arrived at the Ritz Carlton, my sister and I were treated like royalty.
For my spa treatment, out of their three massage experiences I chose the one called ‘Intuitive Ocean’. The experience started with full body sea salt scrub to smooth the skin. Right after the scrub, my body was wrapped with nourishing warm marine mud. After a quick shower, the masseur did a full body massage with an essential oil of my choosing.
After the experience, I was told to do light exercises and drink plenty of to hydrate because my body is getting rid of toxins. Today I feel a little lighter and my skin is glowing. The smooth and firm body butter they applied left my skin feeling really hydrated. Meanwhile, my sister was getting a much needed mani-pedi. We hung out at their relaxation area, sipped champagne and had the most delicious infused water after our spa sessions.
We then headed off to have brunch at Ritz Carlton’s Burlock Coast restaurant. I absolutely fell in love with the view from the restaurant. Located right by the water, you can see the palm trees, the blue ocean and gorgeous people everywhere. At first, we had a hard time deciding on what to order. But my sister wanted to try pretty much everything. So we asked our server for recommendations and we tried the Ceviche tacos, spicy avocado tomatillo dip (UH-MAZING), & pretzel sticks. For the entree, I went with Hammock Hallow Greens salad and my sister had the Huevos Rancheros.
I think there was a moment when we just sat there and looked at the ocean and the people. The weather in Florida right now is pretty much perfect. Burlock Coast is one of those restaurants where people not only come for the delicious food but also the impeccable view. I’m already planning another brunch date soon.
Thank you for an amazing day Ritz Carlton.
