Travel Tunica: Treating Yourself in Tunica!

 Travel Tunica: Treating Yourself in Tunica!

Bellissimo_EntranceTreating yourself is something that is very hard for most of us to do.  The stress of everyday life from work, kids, spouse, and responsibilities daily are enough to make anyone lose their sanity.  If you feel a migraine coming on, I have the anecdote for you.  You need to get away from it all for some ME time, and I found the perfect place—Bellissimo Spa at Harrah’s Casino Tunica.

When walking into Bellissimo, you can hear the soothing sounds of streams and smell aromatherapy scents.  Upon checking in, you are taken to the women’s or men’s side and given a soft robe, sandals, and a full locker to store your purse, wallet, etc.   You can wait between appointments and enjoy hot tea, bottled water, and snacks.

To finish the day perfectly, bring your bathing suit. Take a dip in the whirlpool Jacuzzis, or feel refreshed by relaxing in the steam room.

When you step out of Harrah’s Bellissimo Spa, you will feel recharged and able to keep your sanity, but you’ll want to plan your next blissful visit to treat yourself as soon as possible!
