I wanted some time to relax & reflect without the hassles of my everyday life getting in the way. So, I booked a short stay during the week to Caliente Resort and then made an appointment at their Spa Sereno. Caliente offers a safe couples and female environment, so I knew I wouldn’t be hassled by any unwanted attention while I was there alone.
After checking in and unpacking my luggage in my room, I spent the afternoon leisurely sipping a cocktail poolside. Now this was a great way to start a vacation! The Florida sunshine was warm and the waterfall in the main pool area was soothing and I stayed there all afternoon until it was time for dinner. I didn’t much feel like socializing, so I grabbed their Chef’s dinner special from the restaurant of blackened scallops over rice with mixed vegetables and headed to my room to write in my journal & watch some tv.
Since I was well rested I got up real early the next morning and I took a stroll around the resort complex. It offers a nice paved trail that winds through the homes, and condos. When the restaurant opened for breakfast, I grabbed a smoothie and headed to their naked as you dare yoga fitness class. After class, I took an outdoor shower & took my time lounging by the pool. Later, I headed to the spa to check in for my seasonal mud wrap. I was early, so I had the spa order me one of their signature spa lunches, which was a delicious chicken wrap with fruit cup. I also grabbed their complimentary cucumber water and then headed back out to the pool area with one of their nice comfortable robes to sit under the shade of the veranda. I eat my lunch and once again enjoy the sights and sounds of the delightful waterfall and blue skies until it was time for my treatment. Back at the spa, my massage therapist met me in the spa lobby where she guided me to a one of the many private rooms. Here she took her time explaining the process and then we got started. It was amazing! So, I ended up adding in additional treatment for the next day, but I could have stayed at the spa all day and decided next time that I would book an all day treatment as there was a variety of offerings to choose from.
I was so relaxed from my spa treatment that I almost just stayed in my room that evening. But, getting hungry, I headed over to their sports bar to grab a light dinner. While sitting on the veranda finishing my huge salad, I heard singing. I followed the sound to the other side of the main pool area where I stumbled upon a Tiki Bar karaoke party. It looked like fun and there was a mixture of people there, so I ventured closer. Someone asked me if I wanted to have a seat and before I knew it, I was ordering a drink and clapping along with the rest of the gathered group.
On my last day at the resort I did what most people do on vacation, I slept in! Okay, so I stayed longer than I meant too at karaoke, but hey I was on vacation. I had one last treatment scheduled to get a mani & pedi after lunch. And when I called the front desk they were was gracious and gave me a later check out time and advised me that they would store my luggage for me as well.
This time I ate out on the veranda and then headed down to the spa for my last appointment. It was such a relaxing vacation and I didn’t even gain a pound, though the food was delicious and the drinks were strong. I can’t wait to come back to stay again!
Maybe next time I can talk a couple of my friends to come with me for a quick girls getaway. It is clothing-optional so even my non-nudist friends will be comfortable and we’ll plan it over a Thursday night when the resort celebrates women with ladies night!
You don’t have to be a resort guest or member to visit the spa, though it does give you additional benefits.
