Pampering Yourself at the Epicurean Hotel in Tampa

My stay at the Epicurean Hotel was much more than just a regular visit. In a truly long time, I dove into self-care.

And what better place than at the in-house spa at the Epicurean – Evangeline Spa. The motto of the spa is A Delectable Spa, following in the footsteps of its hotel.

How I Spent My Time at the Spa Evangeline

I milked the experience for what is was worth.

It starts at the front desk where you get a greeting and the run down of what to expect.

I totally enjoyed the dressing area which has tons of cool creams and where you get your bathrobe on.

Believe it or not, I have been to spas before, but each time I go I just feel like a kid at the candy store. They are so delectable!

Then I took my time in the waiting room (didn’t rush to tell them I was ready for my treatment). Just enjoying the freshly infused antioxidant drinks was so fun for me.

And, honestly, every mama can relate with me on this one – having alone time is pampering in itself.

I had the massage treatment. Rachel, my masseuse was excellent. She knew exactly what needed to be done. Living in Guatemala, where I get the majority of my massages, can be a true toss up with the masseuses since there are no requirements for any sort of a certification and anyone can walk off the street and say they can give a massage. So having a real one makes a difference.

Recommendation for Visiting the Spa Evangeline

I would highly recommend making an appointment. I came on a weekday, no holidays and there was a few people there. To keep it minimal and peaceful it’s better to have a secure reservation.
