Mandara Spa - Two Special Treatments
Indulged or Hot Rocked!
The Mandara Spas on the Silversea ships have two very special self-indulgent massages that will give you wonderful stories to tell your friends when you get back home--the "Ultimate Indulgence" massage and the "Hot Lava Rock" massage.
When I saw the "Hot Lava Rock" massage on the Mandara Spa menu, I decided I had to try it. After all, it met my criteria of cruise vacation self-indulgence! The therapist first steams smooth rocks covered in cocoa butter. She then glides these warm rocks over your body. When the rock first comes into contact with your skin, it is like a smooth, warm heating pad being applied with pressure. The heat starts in one small place, but quickly spreads deeply into your muscles as the therapist moves it across your body. This massage is not as deep as a traditional massage, but is just perfect for those who really don't want to be "prodded" too much.
Either of these massages will provide a quiet respite to your hectic life. What a great sensation to be massaged with four hands or with hot rocks, and you can imagine the eyes rolling at the office when you describe one (or both) of these delightful pamperings!
The Silversea Mandara Spas also have several other types of more traditional massages. My friend Juanda enjoyed her massage on the Silver Shadow so much that she went back for another session before the end of our cruise.
Some Tips for All Cruise Spas
Next time you plan a cruise, reserve some time and some of your cruise budget for a trip to the spa. It will be like a dessert on top of your cruise vacation.
