ALVADORA SPA

Cheezy title right?

We didn’t know how else to explain the Alvadora Spa at the Royal Palms Resort in Phoenix.

We have incredible  4 and 5 star resorts in the Phoenix metro area. When it comes to spa treatments we’ll do one star.  That’s how much we love getting pampered.  What’s a bad massage?  Like, really.  But since we have so many wonderful places so close, we’re checking out the more stars.

All of our resorts are unique and different.  We’ve shown you the Morrocan flavors of the Omni Montelucia Resort on our Instagram page.  The Royal Palms is pure Italy. Tuscany.  Valet or self park, either way your stroll to the spa is jaw dropping gorgeous.  It’s like a restorative treatment in itself. This Tuscan oasis makes you feel like you’re far away from the desert.  Lush greenery and gorgeous flowers, beautiful architecture line your walk.

Get ready to get pampered.  The spa is serene and beautiful.  It has a courtyard with a fireplace, relaxation room, steam rooms, outdoor hot tub and much more. We have photos on Instagram of the lotions and soaps in the changing room because they just smell so darn good.  They use Neroli which is a fancy orange and loved it so much we bought ourselves some of it.

My facialist was amazing and if I can quit turning into my mother and remember her name, I’ll come back and put it on here.  Argh!  She was friendly, knowledgeable and did an amazing job.  She told me I had great skin too so who wouldn’t love that?

The wonderful thing about getting a spa treament is that you can spend the entire day there. Bring a book, hang out at the pool, have lunch.  It so much more than just getting a facial or a massage. You can turn this into a full day of relaxation.   They also run specials for locals and specials in general. So keep checking their website or join their mailing list for some great deals.  It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to treat yourself for the day and feel like you’re in Italy without leaving your own backyard.
