Any time we think of Shutters on the Beach, memories of yummy brunches and lavish spa days insistently invade the brain — it's really one of the most peaceful places on the Pacific (sigh...why can't it be Friday, like, now?). Well, just when we thought Shutters's lap of luxe couldn't get more comfy, ONE the spa is now teaming up with our ultimate skincare indulgence — red flower.
Introducing a line of rich "ocean" products exclusively suited to the hotel, and a brand new menu of under-the-sea styled services, red flower is riding the highest tide here, ladies! We can't wait to try the 90-minute therapeutic massage with a smoothing sea salt, aloe vera, laurel leaf and eucalyptus exfoliation, a hydrating sea algae masque, and then, for the grand finale...wait for it...a warm tropical rain rinse! Pure. Bliss. And as a special bonus to us locs, you'll get access to the on-the-sand pool for the entire day of your visit.
There are only 28 hours left until your 3-day weekend begins, and we're thinking it should definitely include some of this high-caliber seaside pampering! Can you really disagree?
