Just what the Doctor ordered…a relaxing, well deserved weekend. Less than two hours from Phoenix is the beautiful town of Prescott where the roads taken are breathtaking.
This year we opted to stay again at the Prescott Resort where we took advantage of the “Relaxation Package” that includes a recently remodeled suite that exposes a very classy look, a $50 room service certificate and two-one hour massages.
The suite was fabulous, we were on the 4th floor facing the beautiful mountains where the view was outstanding.
The shower was strong and invigorating, two flat screen TV’s, a refrigerator, and the bed was grand and so comfortable.
Room service was delicious and very affordable…using the certificate, we were able to have a filling lunch and dinner, not including tip or drinks. The presentation of the dishes we ordered was the best we have seen in quite awhile. We tried a new appetizer and we both realized we do not like Brie even though it was well prepared with drizzling caramelized onion. The sandwiches were tasty with great French Fries and the best Vegetable Chips we have ever had. The Crab Cakes and Coconut Shrimp was mouth watering and really hit the spot.
Saving the best for last…the massages…how do you describe something that takes your hard working body and refreshes, revitalizes and makes it feel young again? We have learned not to get a deep muscle massage instead always specifically ask for an invigorating massage. The deep detoxing massage makes me nauseous and very light headed so I have now learned to avoid them.
They have not renovated the casino which is still small and really smoky, the machines played with us but no big jackpots this time.
We enjoyed it all and opened our eyes once again to how we need to learn to consistently take care of ourselves. For 2008, every month we will take advantage of a good deal package including massages and a king size bed at a top resort where we can get our bodies and minds in tip-top shape. More reviews for our readers as well.
