Most of us while on holiday want to relax and unwind and take time out to recharge the batteries. So what better way to do this but to indulge in a little pampering while you are in the mood! And that’s exactly what we did! We chose the Te Manava Spa while in Rarotonga and were not disappointed.
We opted for the traditional Balinese Couples Massage, a deep oil massage based on the ancient system of Ayurvedic healing. Both of us were pleasantly surprised to learn that our two lovely therapists were in fact from Bali, so our massage was going to be thoroughly authentic!
Our session began with a warm foot bath and exfoliation of the feet which is a Balinese tradition before commencing our massage which consisted of long strokes & skin rolling to relieve tension and improve circulation, promoting total body mind & soul harmony. It was fabulous and we felt absolutely amazing! Like all good things in life, our 60 minutes of total bliss came to an end far to soon but we left floating on air!
Te Manava Spa is an experience in itself, if visiting Rarotonga you just have to put this on the ‘must do’ list.
As well as the ‘Couples Massage’ other treatments on offer include; an ‘Organic Escape Facial’ an ‘Exotic Hand Ritual Manicure’ a ‘Sole Delight Pedicure’ or the ‘Ultimate Indulgence Massage’ featuring two therapists! Visit their website for details. Pacific Resort also offers a complimentary ride to and from the Spa if required. Bookings can be made at Pacific Resort’s reception.
