WHAT TO PACK FOR A SPA WEEKEND
There’s nothing like pampering yourself with a rejuvenating spa getaway, solo or with friends. If a spa-inspired all-inclusive vacation isn’t on your calendar just yet, there are plenty of local spas that offer relaxing treatments that will do the trick. When packing for a spa day, you can ditch the jeans and makeup for all-around relaxation. Next time you decide to treat yourself, here’s what you should bring along:
Robe, Slippers, Towel: Sometimes these are complimentary from the spa and other times you’re expected to bring your own. Call your spa in advance to find out if these items will be provided. Your visit will be much more comfortable with a cozy robe and slippers to lounge in.
Swim-Suit, Sunscreen, Flip Flops: Take advantage of spa facilities like a hot tub, sauna, steam room, and swimming pool so pack your swim-suit and flip flops to walk around the spa. If there’s an outdoor pool, don’t forget the sunscreen!
Loungewear: Bring a comfortable change of clothes to wear between treatments and maybe something different to leave the spa in if you have evening plans.
Toiletries: You’ll feel refreshed after your spa treatments, so you’ll want to look it too! Some spas are equipped with basic toiletries, but you may want to bring a cosmetic bag with deodorant, hair bands, a toothbrush, lip chap and anything else you may need before you leave.
Reading Material: An Ottawa spa day is the perfect opportunity to catch up on light reading. You’ll never feel more relaxed than your time at the spa so bring that book or magazine you’ve been meaning to pick up but haven’t had the time.
Reusable Water Bottle: You’ll want to stay hydrated throughout the day, so if you have a favourite water bottle or electrolyte beverage, fill it up before you leave home. Your spa may offer coffee and maybe even alcoholic drinks, but we recommend always having water by your side.
Pack your light bag and head off to paradise – leave your worries behind!
