Everyone deserves a spa day. The relaxation and renewal that come along with a day at the spa can’t be beat, but why don’t we do it more often. The cost? Planning a day out? Whatever the case may be, we are going to make it easier for you. I’m giving away a day pass to the Eau Spa for you and a friend. (value $150) You heard that right, you and a friend will enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the Eau Spa at the Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan. Sit back and relax on the swinging chairs in the open air sanctuary, dip you toes in the shallow water, grab a book and escape to the lounge chairs or relax to the sounds of the water easing your tensions away.

With the day pass, you will have free run of the saunas, whirlpools, lounge area, outdoor garden area and be treated to tasty and refreshing treats such as a scrumptious chocolate brownies and a cup of tea. While you are there, you might want to play at the Scrub and Polish Bar (this would be an additional fee though), but where else can you create your own personalized blends of aromatic herbs, soothing oils and sea salt?

The Eau Spa is located at The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach, 100 S Ocean Boulevard in Manalapan. (561) 540-4960.

  • A really good facial is a special treat that leaves you looking and FEELING fabulous. It’s also quite difficult to give yourself a facial while a home salt scrub is quite easy.

    I hear a spa day can revive any soul — young or old, healthy or unhealthy, energetic or drepressed. I have only experienced a massage at a spa, and your typical pedicures and manicures at ‘Cheri Nails’ but have never enjoyed it all with a full day of relaxation. After looking the menu at Eau Spa, I think my first choice would “Scub-Me-Eauver,” second choice: the “Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial.” Thank you very much for making this opportunity possible for someone!

  • Tamara says:

    I would love that Bamboo Massage at the Eau Spa! Wow! What a great contest. tamlush@hotmail.com

  • Seanna says:

    I love all spa treatments, but my favorite is simply a message! And where better than the new spa at the Ritz Carlton!

  • Briana says:

    any massage… stress gone and so happy!

  • Pamela Fowle says:

    I really enjoy facials and masks. So relaxing and body massage is the ultimate. So good for stress. What a great and thoughtful thing to do for someone!! ;->

  • Dax Parcells says:

    Massage (deep tissue or neuromuscular), body scrub, or copper tub soak! LOVE IT ALL!

  • Niki says:

    I would love to experience a massage and a facial, followed by a manicure and pedicure! Thanks for contest~! nichfl@yahoo.com

  • Natalie says:

    I would be so grateful to have a massage or a facial. thanks!

  • Kate says:

    I could definitely use a massage after sleeping on my couch after my apt was flooded. Women need to find time to pamper themselves and this sounds like the perfect solution!

  • Robin says:

    I think in these stressful times, a massage not only feels good, it can be quite healing and therapeutic. Everyone deserves to feel taken care of and relaxed!

  • Joel says:

    It is hard to say which I like best since I love it all. Probably a hot rock massage along woth a pedisage, but a facial runs a close second.

  • Karen says:

    Hi I’ve never had the chance to go to a spa. I was married June 26,2009 and haven’t been able to take a honey moon, so to go away and have this treant would be a dream come true. So please consider us when you choose a winner.

    Best regards,


  • Mary Jo says:

    I will fly across country to check out this spa!

    I love having a body scrub/treatment. I get rid of all that dead flaky stuff, and come away soft and moisturized.

  • Shayla says:

    I’m a lover of body wraps and reflexology massage. The body wrap is so relaxing and the massage releases all of the tension with out pain. I think I’ll have both this weekend!

  • Alison says:

    Nothing beats a good full body massage!

  • Lynn Samuels says:

    I love facials, massages and exfoliation treatments. There is nothing more wonderful than going to a luxurious spa. It helps alleviate tension and worries for at least a short time. The Ritz Spa is a beautiful place and anyone would be lucky to win!!!

  • Doris says:

    I need to cleans these pores! Facial, please!

  • Babette says:

    I cannot resist entering…Today, I want a facial! My favorite thing.

  • lauren c says:

    I love all types of treatments…massages…body wraps…facials…just love to be indulged!

  • Betty says:

    Nothing is better than the moments after a relaxing body massage and facial. Soft music, dim lights and relaxing music enhance this fantastic me-time experience! Followed up by a professional makeup application, a manicure and pedicure and you will walk away looking like a million bucks and feeling like you’re on top of the world! It’s the best!

  • Christine Legris says:

    My favorite is a deep tissue massage! Before the massage, I love to lay by the pool or hop in the jacuzzi, and have a healthy lunch w/ girlfriends. Always a good day w/ the mom/sis or girlfriends!! We always need to pamper ourselves!

  • Joanna Drowos says:

    YES! Time for me to relax and enjoy. I would get a massage and body scrub. I love that time before and after a treatment where you can relax and recharge.

  • Missy says:

    I love the beauty and water features of Eau Spa. To indulge in the Bamboo Massage Meltaway would be heaven, to just relax in bliss and let the stress and tension meltaway. I always love a oxygen facial mask with Vitamin C – to perk up my skin and hydrate, such wonderful luxury and good skincare.

  • Missy says:

    Oops! I fogot to leave my email in my special spa treatment listed above…but you can rest assured that a bamboo massage meltaway and a oxygen facial would be heaven for this single palm beach mom!


  • Denise M. Hull says:

    Nothing better than a fabulous facial or massage! The Ritz is a class act operation and a great way to spend your day!

  • jessica w says:

    PICK ME! PICK ME! :) I would love to be pampered at the spa. My favorite treatment has to be a massage. Never gotten a wrap so that would be interesting too. Its hard to pick – it all sounds so good. stopsendjunk@yahoo.com

  • Kathleen O'Sullivan-Petcoff says:

    I love a special treat of a facial and massge. It has been a long time since I have had the time to enjoy such an experience. Last year my daughter gave me a 1 1/2 facial for which I absolutely loved it! Single parent working hard to afford to kids in college…thanks for your consideration!

  • Deborah says:

    Personal pampering at the Ritz – I can’t think of a better way to relax than a day at the spa and a body massage.

  • Christina says:

    Wow, thanks for the great offer! A spa day sounds wonderful and definitely much needed. :)
    I’ve always really enjoyed an intense deep tissue massage, one that really gets into all those aching areas around my shoulders and neck. Up until recently that has been my experience with a spa treatment. Last September my boyfriend and I went on a cruise and we splurged for a seaweed wrap. It really was to the most INCREDIBLE treatment I ever experienced. It was unbelievably blissful and relaxing – awesome really. That evening to my total surprise, my boyfriend proposed. We’ve been married for 3 months! I’ll definitely never forget that night, thanks in part to the seaweed wrap for setting the stage of the evening!

  • Ana says:

    What a coincidence, maybe? Last week after telling my friend on the amazing facial and hot stone massage I got at a day spa, she mentioned to me that her best spa treatments were done at the eau spa at the Ritz Carlton. I’d never heard of the spa before since then. She suggested that when I go to a day spa again that it must be the eau spa and I must try the Scrub-Me-Eau-ver and the Lifting & Smoothing facial. Hopefully I get chosen to try the services as she highly recommended.=)
