Val’s Voice – Feb. 1, 2007


Well, I have a question for you this month.

When was the last time you have enjoyed OPRYLAND HOTEL?

As long as I have lived here, I have never seen it in the daylight until this past week. That is when I was given the Christmas Present of an OPRYLAND massage. Now, for those of you who have visions of ‘Little Jimmy Dickens’ with a tube of hot massage oil in his hand (or is that just my fantasy??), please rest assured, that is not the case. The Relache, which is located on the second level of The Cascades, is a very relaxing, warm and friendly spa. Massage is not the only service The Relache has to offer; they also provide facials, skin care, nail care, hair care and personal training! Of course, each of those services are separate from the massage. However, when you arrive for your massage, you can also take advantage of the workout room, pool, steam room, sauna and shower. They have a room for relaxation, where you are taken to wait till your therapist is ready. While there you may enjoy water, tea and fruit. (NO…I didn’t say they will sit at your feet and FEED you fruit. Although maybe I will put that in the suggestion box, next time I go.) YES, I DO have another massage coming. WHOO-HOO! The gift that keeps on giving…

As we all know VAL-entine’s Day is upon us and what better way to show your love for your sweetie, than to book a day at the spa for them? Then you could have a nice romantic dinner by the waterfall on the rotating bar OR just go all out and book a room for the night. There is so much to do at OPRYLAND, you might need to stay longer than one night. And please don’t forget, February IS the month of VAL (my birthday, THE WHOLE MONTH, for those of you who don’t know) and I just happen to be registered at OPRYLAND too. I am just that kind of girl, from BIG LOTS to OPRYLAND, I’m not picky and, I DO get around!

Till next time…
