LOEWS DON CESAR HOTEL GETS “BLISSFUL” WITH NEW COUPLES SUNSET MASSAGE

 

 

ST. PETE BEACH, FL – Loews Don Cesar Hotel, the seaside, legendary “Pink Palace,” has introduced  one of the most expensive, and exclusive,  couples massages found anywhere in the world.

 The “Spa Oceana Sunset Bliss Massage” combines the inspiring sunsets seen off the Gulf waters of famed St. Pete Beach, FL, connecting couples to both nature and their loved one. The signature full body therapeutic massage is customized to each individual utilizing techniques that include long soothing strokes to induce relaxation, deep muscle massage to release chronic tension and acupressure to stimulate the flow of energy throughout the body.

 An indulgent scalp massage allows the body to relax while rhythmic massage movements align with the waves of the Gulf. Together, this adventure guides couples on a blissful journey unlike any other.

 This relaxing, rejuvenating and distinctive escape begins when the guest’s dedicated spa attendant welcomes them to Spa Oceana.  After getting comfortable in their personalized monogramed spa robes, the blissful journey begins in a private rooftop cabana overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, where couples are treated to a selection of light distinctive delicacies custom prepared by the hotel’s executive chef, Kenny Hunsberger, named Best Chef in Tampa Bay by Creative Loafing Newspaper, complimented by a bottle of Cristal by Louis Roederer.

After unwinding, couples will continue their journey with a short stroll seaside where they will be welcomed by mother nature into a private “in-ocean” couples cabana where the true oceanic experience begins

Couples will be pampered by Spa Oceana’s top massage therapists as they are embraced by the sounds of the Gulf waters, combined with the cool breeze of the sea. The healing touch of massage allows couples to unwind and explore thoughts of serenity, peace and romance.

“The Loews Don Cesar Hotel has earned a reputation of offering guests only the finest amenities and service, and our new Sunset Bliss Massage combines the best of what we are exceptional at – providing guests an experience that reflects the uniqueness of our area, with the best service and quality spa treatments that can only be discovered at Loews Don Cesar” boasted Stephen Cummings, General Manager.

The yogic healing science of sun bathing, or Atapa Snana, combined with Swedish massage techniques, helps couples leave the chaotic world behind and refresh themselves with a unique and heavenly experience only the Loews Don Cesar can offer.

“Seaside massages have a number of benefits,” shared Jennifer Lak, Director of Spa Oceana. “Sunlight lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, helps build the immune system and can assist in uplifting your spirits. Breathing in the salt air decreases stress and increases a sense of well-being while the sounds of the ocean guide guests into a meditative state. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience, not to be missed.” She continued.

As the sun begins to set, the idyllic massage culminates as couples become one with the nature as they delight in the ritual of experiencing one of the most breath-taking sunsets in Florida. A feeling that alone is priceless. Afterward, the couple is escorted back to the spa where they can enjoy the facility’s amenities in total privacy

The Spa Oceana Sunset Bliss Massage is $3,500 per couple. Five-day notice is required and the service is based on availability. For further information, please call 727-363-5029.

Loews Atlanta Hotel’s Golden Egg Hunt gives locals a dozen reasons to hop around Atlanta

Loews Atlanta Hotel’s Golden Egg Hunt gives locals a dozen reasons to hop around Atlanta

Adults-only Easter event features thousands of dollars in prizes, benefits children’s charity

ATLANTA, Ga. (April 1, 2014) – Atlantans who think Easter egg hunts are just for the kids will get the chance to hunt down their own adults-only eggs across the city as Loews Atlanta Hotel hosts its free, luxury-prize-filled Golden Egg Hunt on April 20.

The event, in partnership with the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau and Bert’s Big Adventure, is a twist on the classic egg hunt in which the hotel’s signature golden eggs are scattered across 12 top-secret locations throughout the city. One egg at each location is filled with a covetable prize such as tickets to World of Coca-Cola, the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, services from Exhale Mind Body Spa, gift cards to some of the city’s best restaurants and more. Plus, random eggs throughout the hunt will be filled with grand prize weekend stays at Loews Hotels & Resorts.

Participants will start the hunt at Loews Atlanta Hotel, located at 1065 Peachtree St. NE in Midtown, at 10 a.m. on Easter Sunday where they will receive their golden egg treasure map, an “I Am ATL” t-shirt or tank top from the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau, and an Easter basket filled with goodies. A dozen golden eggs will be planted at each top-secret location, but just one egg holds the prize. Hunters won’t know who selected the lucky eggs until they crack them open at the finish line in the lobby of the hotel.

In keeping with the Easter egg hunt spirit traditionally associated with kids, the hotel has partnered with Bert’s Big Adventure, a nonprofit that provides all-expenses-paid, five-day journeys to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families, for the event. Although the hunt is free, participants are encouraged to give a suggested donation of $15 per person. All proceeds benefit Bert’s Big Adventure.

“The golden egg hunt was so popular last year that we’re bringing it back again with even more free swag and even bigger prizes,” said Mark Castriota, general manager at Loews Atlanta Hotel. “We’re proud to bring the adults of Atlanta together to celebrate Easter and have some fun while also benefiting a worthy cause like Bert’s Big Adventure.”

For more information and to sign up for the Golden Egg Hunt, visit http://loewsatlanta.xorbia.com/goldenegghunt. Advanced sign up is encouraged, but participants may also sign up on site on April 20 starting at 9 a.m.

Locals and out-of-towners wanting to make a holiday weekend of the event can book the Golden Egg Hunt Package which includes a welcome Easter basket amenity, admission to the golden egg hunt, Easter brunch for two at Restaurant Eleven, complimentary premium internet and complimentary valet parking for one vehicle for the length of stay.
