If you are tired of the usual chocolates and flowers, try a couples spa day or evening to celebrate your love this Valentine’s Day. Have relaxing and romantic spa treatments together during the day and then celebrate with a night out, or plan an evening treat at a hotel spa. What ever you choose it will be a memorable Valentine’s Day filled with relaxation and pampering.
A perfect Valentine’s Day date awaits at GemVie Spa, beginning with a glass of wine or cup of aromatic tea before entering the candlelight massage room. There you relax with a Signature Body Scrub, Hot Stone Massage and Paraffin Hand Treatment. After one hour and 15 minutes, emerge renewed and refreshed together to enjoy the rest of your romantic day. http://www.gemvie.com.
