Fathers day is always a difficult period for me as my dad passed on 8 years ago. I miss him everyday and even more on all the special occasions. I also get a bit envious when I see all the families spending time with their dad’s. My dad and I were very close. Girls are always special for their dads.

 

My dad was a bit old fashioned when it came to going to a spa and having beauty treatments. Dad came from the “old school” and felt spa treatments were not manly. About 12 years ago the resort group I worked for started adding La Vita Spas to their properties and hotels to enhance customer experiences and I kept bragging about all the wonderful treatments I was experiencing and how wonderful and relaxed I feel after each spa treatment.

Gradually dad became inquisitive and wanted to know more about the spas and what they offer and what type of people go to a spa. I eventually convinced dad to join me and mum for a day in the spa, we went to the La Vita Spa at The Palace All Suites. I had dad look at the vast array of treatments offered in the spa menu and made him choose what he felt comfortable with. His first treatment was a spa paraffin pedicure and that was a hit, he tried the spa paraffin manicure next and after that he had a full body hot stone massage, dad was in his element. He next had to try the hydro facilities. He loved both the sauna and the Jacuzzi.

 

The spa bug had now bitten dad and I had to book him a treatment once a month. The spa paraffin pedicure was his favorite monthly treat combined with a Full Body Aromatherapy Massage.

 

Miss you dad, hope you enjoying some spa treatments with the angels.
