Un weekend de vis cu rasfat la Ana Aslan Spa

Ah dragilor, nu stiu voi dar mie cu siguranta nu mai imi sta capul la nimic altceva decat la mare, nisip si relaxare. Da, am intrat deja in starea aia de euforie, cu spirit de vacanta, si asta pentru ca am trait un weekend frumos pe litoral, chiar acum o saptamana. Ce sa spun, a fost o gura de aer proaspat dupa o perioada destul de haotica, deci a venit fix atunci cand aveam nevoie cel mai mult.

Dupa cateva zile mai lipsite de energie, ca sa nu le zic “down”, mi-am facut bagajul si am fugit la mare. Si nu, nu singura ca la 20 de ani asa cum suna, ci cu tot cu copii. Am avut inspiratia sa ne cazam la Ana Hotels in Eforie Nord – un hotel SPA amplasat la malul marii, ce ofera o experienta senzoriala pe meleagul romanesc. Si in mod surprinzator, nici nu mi-am dat seama ca sunt in Romania in zilele cat am stat acolo, fiind inconjurata de foarte multi straini care culmea- au ales sa vina la noi pentru un sejur relaxant la mare.

Hotelul in sine este o oaza de liniste si calm, amplasat intr-o statiune mai linistita, unde auzi vrabiutele dimineata si numeri stelele noaptea, atat e de senin si de curat. Si partea buna este ca nu trebuie sa il vizitezi in toiul verii ca sa te bucuri de el, pentru ca piscina din curte este de ajuns, iar gradina este tot ce ai nevoie cand nu ai chef sau vreme torida ca sa fugi pe nisip. Ideal pentru cupluri si familii in egala masura, chit ca ai copii mici sau mari, exista ceva de facut pentru toata lumea. In special pentru noi, doamnelor!

Acum probabil sunteti curiosi acum cu ce mi-am ocupat eu timpul in cele 3 zile la Ana… Ei bine, cu MINE. A fost o evadare despre, cu si pentru mine, si nu as fi vrut sa fie in niciun alt fel. Asadar, timpul meu a fost impartit intre proceduri la Ana Aslan SPA, mancare buna, plimbari pe faleza si multa odihna – ceea ce va recomand si voua atunci cand simtiti nevoia de o pauza. Tratamentele hotelului sunt de toate felurile si pentru toate gusturile, insa eu m-am aruncat direct catre impachetarea cu ciocolata si tratamentele faciale. Can you blame me?!

Procedura de impachetare cu ciocolata este un tratament ce ajuta la curatarea tenului si a pielii, si la stimularea circulatiei. Dupa asa un rasfat iti simti pielea atat de catifelata si hidratata, iar aspectul este de…papusa de portelan – sau cel putin asa m-am simtit eu! In egala masura mi-a placut si tratamentul facial care include masaj de drenaj si masti de regenerare si hidratare ce iti pregatesc tenul pentru soare, sau il ajuta sa isi revina dupa expunerea la soare ce duce la uscarea pielii. Am fost foarte incantata de amandoua, si as fi ales mult mai multe, pentru ca oferta SPA-ului este extrem de larga si variata:

• Rituauri de masaje si terapii de relaxare, ce includ tehnici indiene, impachetari cu namol, masaj cu pietre vulcanice incinse, reflexologie, masaj anticelulitic, si multe altele

• Tratamente anti-aging, precum mezoterapie sau infuzii cu acid hialuronic

• Tratamente de Detox, ce includ drenajul limfatic, tratamente cu ceai verde sau masaje speciale pentru picioare frumoase

• Tramanete faciale, ce au la baza metode de lifting, masti cu aur de 24K sau tratamente speciale pentru zona ochilor

• Programe full de slabit si fitness, ce includ impachetarea in ciocolata, baia de alge sau masaje de sculptat pentru picioare

• Programe si pachete speciale pentru barbati, precum masaje de relaxare si energizare, hidromasaj, masaj sub dus, kinetoterapie sau electroterapii

Dupa cum vedeti, exista ceva pentru toata lumea, iar un weekend de multe ori nu e de ajuns ca sa incerci tot ce vrei.

Vestea buna e ca daca vii in formatie completa, nu trebuie sa-ti faci griji pentru copii – in timp ce eu ma rasfat la SPA, copiii au avut parte de programe de entertainment oferite de hotel pe toata perioada vacantei de vara. De la kids club cu activitati, jocuri de grup sau mini-disco, la piscina exterioara si gradina imensa in care se pot desfasura in voie. De asemenea exista si optiunea de cursuri de inot pentru copii, pentru cei care au curaj si vor o experienta educativa.

Pe scurt, a fost o experienta ce mi-a activat toate simturile intr-o locatie de vis, iar eu mi-am reincarcat baterille pentru intreaga luna. Il recomand oricui are nevoie de o gura de aer proaspat si putin rasfat la malul marii, sau celor care sunt in cautare de locatia ideala pentru a-si petrece vacanta cu copiii. Iar eu data viitoare ma aventurez la clasele de pilates, yoga si aqua gym, dar va tin la curent!

Va pup si…vacanta insorita!

Hello my dear ones! I don’t know about you but my body is here and my mind somewhere else.. far, far away – on a beach to be more exact, surrounded by palm trees, hot sands and crystal-clear waters. But instead I’m right here in front of my laptop, preparing to tell you the story of my past weekend. The reason I got into this vacation slash chill mode is the weekend I’ve spent by the seaside one week ago, that came at the perfect time, after a kind of chaotic past period for me. So as soon as I saw the opportunity, I took it, and I couldn’t be more pleased about it! Hence my sunny, happy, take-it-easy mood!

So after a few days of over-working and feeling overwhelmed and caught up by all kids of tasks and problems, I took a couple of days off and escaped at the seaside. And not by myself as I used to in my twenties, but took the kids with me as well! We checked in at Ana Hotels in Eforie Nord – a SPA hotel situated in a peaceful town by the sea, where you can enjoy an exciting senzorial experience right at the shore. What surprised me most was the high number of tourists that were staying at the hotel, and this made me feel like I wasn’t even in Romania after all! I was glad to see that we have so many foreign people that choose Romania for their holiday getaway!

The hotel itself feels like a oasis of calm and peace, where the sky is so clear that you can count the stars at night and hear the birds wake you up in the morning. The good thing is that it doesn’t have to wait for the summer to go there – you can make use of the pool and the large garden surrounding the hotel whenever you don’t feel like going to the sea, or when it’s simply not warm enough. I feel like it’s the ideal place for couples and families with kids – whether small or teens, because there is something to do for each and every one of us. Especially for us, ladies!

Now you’re probably wondering what I was up to during our stay there. Well let me tell you I was busy with…ME. I took it as a weekend for me, myself and I, as a getaway where I was busy pampering myself and I enjoyed every second of it. Between SPA appointments, good food, walks on the beach and a lot of rest, I thought about how important it is to take a break from the chaotic lifestyle in the city and

The SPA has some really grea treatments on the menu, but I dived right into the wrap-in-chocolate and the facial massage. Can you blame me?!

The wrap-in-chocolate procedure is a treatment that helps cleanse the skin and stimulates the body circulation, and that leaves you with the skin alike a porcelain’s doll – hydrated and super smooth. I equally enjoyed the facial treatment which includes drainage and regeneration massages along with hydrating masks that prepare your skin for the sun or- vice-versa – helps restore the skin after a long exposure under the sun rays. I personally was very pleased with both of them and would have done even more if I had the time, because the SPA’s menu has a wide range of options to choose from.

• Massages and Relaxation Therapy, which include mud wraps, Indian techniques, hot stones massage, reflexology, anit-cellulite massages and much more

• Anti-aging Treatments, like mesotherapy or hyaluronic acid treatments

• Detox Treatments with procedures like lymphatic drainage, green-tea treatments or special packages designed for achieving perfect legs (I should definitely try this one!)

• Facial Treatments, which are based on lifting procedures, 24K Gold masks or special eye treatments

• Slimming and Fitness Programs, which include my wrap-in-chocolate procedure, algae baths or legs sculpting treatments

• Special Packages designed for Men, like relaxing or energizing massages, hydromassage, under-shower massage, kinetotherapy or electrotherapy

As you can see, there is something for everyone, and sometimes a weekend is not enough time to try out everything you would want to.

The good news is that even if you come “in formation” (with the whole family), you don’t have to worry about the kids. While mom and dad enjoy the SPA, the kids can enjoy the entertainment programs that the hotel has to offer. From activities in the kids club, to group games and mini-disco, to the outdoor pool and the huge garden where they can feel free to enjoy themselves in peace. There is also the option of swimming lessons for the bigger kids who want to learn something new.

Shortly, it has been an experience that stimulated all my senses in a dreamy location, and I recharged my batteries for a whole month. I recommend it to everyone who needs a breath of fresh air by the seaside or for the ones adventuring with the whole family. Next time I’m going for the yoga, pilates and aqua gym classes – but I’ll keep you posted about those ones!

Enjoy and have a sunny holiday
