Hotel spa etiquette obliges

If you value intimacy, privacy, rest away from the hustle and bustle of the city, direct your steps to the resorts located outside the city.

A stay in such a spa in a hotel will be pure pleasure and, of course, a benefit for beauty. Why exactly there?

Resorts located outside of the city, are usually located in scenic areas with local attractions included.

One such place is Hotel Magellan located in Bronislawowo in the vicinity of Sulejowski Lagoon.

In the heart of Sulejów Landscape Park. Deciding there for a weekend at the spa on the lake, we have guaranteed attractions on the water and breathtaking views.

However, in order to rest comfortably, it is worthwhile to properly prepare for a visit to the temple of relaxation.

In many places, we customers are bound by etiquette, savoir vivre rules.

The spa is no different. You are about to learn what to expect from a hotel spa, what to bring with you and how to behave during your stay at the Institute?

We will also tell you how to prepare for the treatments.

Ready for some guidance?

A visit to the SPA

Spas in hotels offer us many attractions that will make us feel relaxed.

As there are attractions there are also expectations of customers. Choosing InstituteWe decide where we want to leave our money.

That's why...

Let's solidly search the offers so that our spa weekend at the lake meets 100% our expectations. It really is possible.

So what can we expect when using a hotel spa service?

Expectations and attractions

When planning a spa treatment, we should make sure it is a quiet, pleasantly lit place.

It will be comfortable, luxurious, soothing with calming music in the background.

Another expectation, actually a real standard, is cleanliness, even sterile cleanliness.

We relax effectively in nice, well-kept rooms.

With the natural surroundings of the facility, in quiet, aesthetically designed areas.

We already know how the place of our relaxation should look like.

Since the location and spa interiors are a 5 plus, the friendly and helpful staff must also be a 5 plus.

This is not the end of our expectations.

Beds for massageThe equipment includes: saunas, massagers, specialist cosmetic devices. Everything must be in working order and dedicated to the appropriate treatments.

Do you prefer manual treatments with professional beauty products?

A good hotel spa should offer a range of such treatments with detailed descriptions.

When choosing a treatment, we should know the course of treatment and of course the effects of the treatment before we lie down on the bed.

What else can we expect from our visit to the hotel spa?

If only that after a relaxing session for the body, we will continue to relax in the comfort of the hotel room.

The hotel's restaurant will take care of our culinary experience, and the hotel staff will tell you what to see in the area, what place to visit, what attractions to take advantage of.

Don't feel like leaving your hotel? You can also relax and have fun in the building.

The really good hotels have pool complexThe hotel's clubhouse, and game rooms.

I assure you, you won't get bored 🙂 .

What to take with you on a spa weekend?

There was a bit about our expectations, now it's time for a solid and valuable dose of information about what we should take with us to the SPA?

If you didn't find this information on the spa website, be sure to ask about it when you book your appointment at the hotel.

What should you include in your travel bag?

In the good hotels next door SPA&Wellness Institute There is also a swimming pool.

If your resort includes unlimited use of the pool complex, don't waste this opportunity.

Pack pool flip-flops and a swimsuit. You don't need to pack towels, a robe and a hair dryer.

Hotel stars provide such equipment for each guest.

Leave these things in a safe place

They are small but extremely valuable to us. We are talking about jewelry.

We advise you to take off your bling before spa treatment.

Valuable items can be left in room safes or at the front desk.

Why do I advise you to take off your jewelry?

It's simple...

During the treatment you are supposed to relax and unwind.

No bracelet or pendant will break off during the treatment, and no earrings will dig into our skin during the session.

Preparations for the procedure

If this is your first visit to the spa, you will certainly be interviewed by a cosmetologist who will conduct a brief interview with you.

Rest assured this is a standard activity.

The specialist will choose the right treatments for you and advise against those that are not advisable.

During this brief interview, tell what medications you take and what ailments you suffer from.

This is really important.

Then there is the issue of nudity. Remember that no one should force you to strip down to your broth....

However, during the procedure you should wear as little as possible so as not to dirty your clothes with cosmetics and feel uncomfortable.

For treatments requiring a negligee, the spa will offer disposable underwear.

However, remember that your comfort is the most important thing, the person performing the procedure will definitely keep this in mind.

What further guidance is there?

I discourage you from visiting a massage therapist, and from visiting a pool or sauna right after a heavy meal.

(wait at least an hour)

During the treatment, listen to the instructions of the cosmetologist, who will explain the procedure to you and define the scope of their work.

After treatments

Relaxed and rejuvenated after your treatments, you continue your weekend at the lakeside spa in the pool and sauna.

After both baths and treatments (unless the cosmetologist suggests not to) I recommend you wash your body thoroughly.

Perhaps the cosmetologist will suggest you use SPA cosmetics, which will prolong and consolidate the effects of the treatment.

It's worth checking out the range of these cosmetics, maybe you will find your new face cream, lotion or hand cream among them.

Make good use of the time after the treatment, it is a good time for another consultation with a cosmetologist that day.

During this time, you can discuss and plan your next spa appointments, choose your next treatments, learn about cosmetic novelties.

Staying in the SPA is supposed to be a pleasure, a reward after a difficult week at work.

Proper preparation for this visit will give us peace of mind before and during the visit.
