Going to the spa is such a treat not only for your body but also your mind. I usually go to the spa for massages or body treatments, but wanted to start the new year with a rejuvenating facial. Since moving to Seattle, I have spent a lot of time researching and reading reviews on spas in the area, services provided and amenities offered. I was constantly coming across Penelope and the Beauty Bar, so I knew I had to plan a day.
I invited my friend Nadia along with me to experience the Penelope Signature Facial and Jade infrared pod session. As we arrived to the Fairmont Olympic hotel, the valet greeted us, and took my car. We entered the hotel, and took a left towards the spa.
A hidden gem tucked away off Icicle Road and from the busy traffic lies the cozy Sleeping Lady Resort. As we drove in through the fog, the resorts sign was revealed like a warm welcome as we approached. This is the resort we chose to stay at for our weekend getaway to Leavenworth, WA. The resort is conveniently located about 3.5 miles from the village.
Being a mom is a hard job, so when I found out the Fairmont Olympic in Seattle offered afternoon tea, I just had to go. I invited my good friend Julie to join me on a Mom’s day out for some champagne, tea, sandwiches and pastries. Whether you are visiting the Seattle area or local to the area, this is a must do!
The Fairmont Olympic is conveniently located in downtown Seattle, so it’s within walking distance to popular attractions such as Pike Place Market, the Seattle Public Library, South Lake Union and much more.
