Tahoe’s Lighthouse Day Spa second location is now open at Granlibakken Resort and Conference Center at the bucolic family resort near Tahoe City. I had the luxury to take my better half to Granlibakken for a weekend retreat – or staycation. On Sunday of our visit we started the day with a delicious hearty breakfast at the resort with eggs benny, sausage, cinnamon toast and fresh fruit. We went for a morning bike ride and then came back to relax and pamper ourselves.
I had the foot massage, scrub and pedicure. My feet looked brand new, felt so soft and the nail polish was a complementary color for my skin tone. Sitting there with the nail manicurist, talking about life while starring at the beautiful hillsides of the quaint Norwegian resort I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the day.
Meanwhile, my boyfriend received the first professional massage of his life. After 45 minutes of avoiding drooling and falling asleep on the massage table he came out of the room grinning ear to ear and was the most relaxed rejuvenated I’ve ever seen him. He does carpentry and works hard long hours and needless to say he had muscles that he didn’t know were tense and sore. He exclaimed he’s hooked and wants a massage every week!
The new location boasts three treatment rooms and a number of wellness packages aimed at revitalization and relaxation, including customized and deep tissue massage, hot stone therapy, pre-natal, reiki healing and coming soon couples massages.
