The Bellissimo Spa at Harrah’s Casino Tunica is the perfect way to unwind from the stresses of everyday life. Once you walk through the spa doors, you will soon forget the kids crying, husband complaining and your boss yelling at you to have your reports done.
Chrissy and I decided that we needed a break and booked a day at the spa. We both scheduled appointments for a Pure Fiji Body Experience and a Hot Stone Massage.After checking in and changing into our robeswe headed back to the whirlpool to loosen up before our first treatment which was the Pure Fiji Body Experience. It starts with a gentle exfoliation, water massage, and a body butter wrap to promote hydration to the deepest layers. When they say body experience, they ain’t lying. It’s a whole lotta scrubbing, moisturizing with somemassaging thrown in. I can honestly say that if I had a choice to do anything again this would be it.
After our first treatment we decided to take a break from our pampering and have some good old southern food. Who would have thought you could get some of the best fried chicken, green beans and mac & cheese in a hotel lobby. After stuffing ourselves we headed back into the spa for our last treatment, a hot stone massage.
The hot stone massage is perfect for those who prefer a little warmth along with a relaxing massage. There were times that I couldn’t tell if the masseuse was using the stones or her hands, but it felt as relaxing as a long hot shower. If you’re looking to really get the kinks out you probably should go with a deep tissue massage, but if you’ve never had a hot stone it’s worth a try.
The Bellissimo spa also offers a full service salon and nail services. With any spa treatment you have all day access to the whirlpool, sauna, steam room and gym. Plan to spend as much time as you want, the staff is on hand the entire time to assist with anything you might need.
