My stay at the Epicurean Hotel was much more than just a regular visit. For a truly long time, I dove into self-care. And what better place than 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.
Fun facts about Evangeline Spa Tampa
- Evangeline Spa is 2,830 square feet and offers five treatment rooms.
- Their main services include Body, skincare, beauty, Caudalie vinotherapie, and FarmHouse Fresh rituals, along with couples’ spa packages.
- All the herbs and infusions are organic, coming from the same farm as the one used for Élevage Restaurant.
- One of the highlights of the place is an airy mani/pedi room, nicknamed “The Cellar”. It is a wall covered with 20,000 corks. All of them are from Bern’s collection (he never threw out a corkscrew).
How I Spent My Time at the Spa Evangeline Tampa
I milked the experience for what it was worth.
It starts at the front desk, where you get a greeting and a rundown 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 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 Evangeline spa, Tampa FL
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.
