A day at a spa is like a day at Disneyland for Adults, oh no wait, I love Disney so scratch that. A day at a Spa is positively awesome and then some…When I got to Forte Village and I got a small tour of the resort, the first thing I asked was: “Where is the Spa and the Gym?!”, freak I know, but I genuinely spent what could seem like an excessive time in there during the past week. Amazing massages with top of the notch therapists in one of the Leading Spas of the world? Erhmm Yes, I could not possibly deny myself that pleasure. I even forgot the fact that I had to be, well, almost completely clothe-less during, which at first was a bit awkward but as soon as the therapist started, I was like; “Ah what the heck!”

They also had something called the Wellness Circuit which Is what I spent almost one and a half hours -every.single.day- doing. It basically consists on 6 pools with different contents of salt to detox your body. As you move from pool to pool, the saline density changes and gets lower and you have to spend a certain amount of time on each, some 10 minutes, some 20, not more or less. You can see the first photo, where the water looks almost brown (?), well thats pool #1 (The Sea Oil pool). This one has the highest magnesium salt content, thats why it looks so dark and the density is so high you literally float the whole time, its even hard to keep “standing”, your body just floats which makes it incredibly relaxing. As you move along, the density of the salt in the water and temperature decreases and the water gets clearer and clearer. I think my favorite pool was #4 (see photo 4), because it had massage water springs all around the pool, some for certain parts of the body to tone up, and who doesn’t want to tone up? ;)
One of the Therapists told me I should do this course every single day during my stay, because the benefits and detox to my body would last months, so very obedient I went ahead every single day. I hope you are right Mister!

Well, I think I feel like a new person, or I should at least right? It made me realize how stupid I was for not booking trips to the spa every once in a while. We all deserve to get pampered sometimes.
