Cloud 9 Living: SpaFinder Gift Card Review Theresa August 8, 2016 Leisure, Traveling 17 Comments Whether you’re looking for a thrilling adventure or a relaxing experience, Cloud 9 Living specializes in helping you find the right gift for any occasion. From learning to fly a plane or a helicopter, taking a cruise, and soaring on a hot air balloon, the experiences you can take are unique and unforgettable. For the adventurous and the spontaneous, these unique gift ideas provide extraordinary moments you’ll remember forever. Cloud 9 Living: SpaFinder Gift Card Experience If you’re contemplating which endeavor would fit you best, the Cloud 9 Living SpaFinder gift card is the perfect way to relax. To check out the experience, I chose to spend the morning of my wedding anniversary getting pampered with a couple’s spa day in Howard County, Maryland. After looking at the long list of spas that accept SpaFinder gift cards, I decided to visit the Spa at Turf Valley. Not only was the location convenient, but since the spa was part of a resort, there was plenty to see during the visit. This was also a great opportunity to catch a glimpse of the resort’s other amenities. Before booking the experience, you get the opportunity to exchange your gift card for another experience or upgrade to a more expensive experience. Since it can be hard to tell whether someone will love the experience you chose for them, this is an ideal exchange policy. Booking the spa day was easy. You simply print the gift certificate from your Cloud 9 Living account, and you call the spa to reserve an appointment. Turf Valley Spa Getaway Upon our arrival, when I got out of the car to take a photo, I was delighted to spot a rainbow over the fountain. Immediately, it struck me how picturesque the resort was. Past the restaurant and near the indoor pool, the Spa at Turf Valley was easy to find. The list of services the spa provides is extensive. Whether you’re looking for massages, facials, or body treatments, you are sure to find a relaxing experience to indulge in during your stay at the resort. One thing that makes this spa unique is that it offers a wide variety of services for couples. For a relaxing experience, you can receive a classic couple’s massage, or splurge on the more deluxe hot stone couple’s massage. If you want something different, you can both get facials (with the Gentleman’s Rescue Facial for him) or body scrubs (such as the Gentlemen’s scrub). There are also services available for expectant mothers. If you’re visiting for an anniversary spa getaway, there are plenty of services that fit with the traditional gifts year by year. For example, for your fourth anniversary when fruit is a traditional gift, ask for the Sweet Orange and Citrus Pick-Me-Up body treatment. When you celebrate your sixth anniversary and candy is the traditional gift, ask for the Decadent Chocolate Scrub. Since the SpaFinder gift card allowed me to chose from many places, I loved discovering a spa I hadn’t previously visited. During my visit, this spa was incredibly impressive for its quality of service and its serene view. Taking In The Scenic View Before and after you visit the spa, you head to a relaxation room that overlooks the golf course and the fountain. Here, you fill out paperwork, wait for the masseuse, and relax. The calm, serene view is spectacular. With ample seating for spa guests, you have plenty of room for a quiet experience. Inside, you will find plenty of seats to recline in as you wait. With nature-inspired decor, the waiting room is a comfortable place for guests. The natural light pouring in through the windows creates a relaxing mood.Not only did I discover a beautiful, relaxing location during my visit, but I also experienced one of the best spa days I’ve ever had. The quality of the service was spectacular. During my visit, I learned that the staff took their time, they ensured that they knew your preferences, and they gave you plenty of time to rest before leaving. Afterwards, you can experience the tranquility of the sauna. You can also sit at the patio for as long as you would like. This gives you a nice opportunity to rehydrate, grab a cereal bar, and get some energy before leaving. Being able to choose from multiple experiences was the best part of making a purchase from Cloud 9 Living. I loved being able to decide between so many exhilarating and unique experiences. Ultimately, this spa day was the best choice for me to celebrate the morning of my anniversary. The resort offered lush surroundings, beautiful natural decor and excellent service that left me wanting to return in the future. Have you had an excellent spa day recently?
