Spa Slut: Mandarin Oriental Elbow Beach in Bermuda

So obviously I am not going to make this long… I am enjoying myself too much to sit at a computer typing.  My husband is putting in our football picks for tomorrow so I thought I would type a short update.  It is so beautiful here. The island, the beaches, the people… To die for.  The weather was gorgeous today, but I felt like I needed to duck out of the sun for awhile to visit the spa here at the Mandarin Oriental Elbow Beach. I’m not going to go into full review mode, but all I can say is this puts their NYC sister to shame. It is the perfect celebrity haven due to the privacy.  There are no “locker rooms” at this spa… Oh no… If you book a service here you get your own treatment suite that includes a gorgeous shower, bathroom, treatment area, and huge balcony with a day bed facing the ocean.  They give you 30 minutes after your treatment to enjoy your spa suite.  I got a 2-hour time ritual with a mineral salt scrub add-on. I used my time ritual for a massage and a facial. The scrub and massage were great. The facial was pretty bare bones (more like having products slathered on and then when my mask was on she left the room for a long time).  Though, she did come back with goodies. When I opened my eyes at the end of the treatment, she had gotten me cut-up fruit and water to enjoy on the balcony.  Classy…

That’s all I’ve got except that you should know my lashes and gel nails lasted a long swim in the ocean today…

I probably won’t update again until I return on Wednesday. I am going to skip this week’s Sunday Splurge, so please splurge in my absence and know that I will give you plenty of ideas on how to waste your money on Sundays to come.
