Several Oceanside ladies were treated to a night of pampering November 24 as The Grotto Spa at Tigh-Na-Mara hosted a VIP open house.

Spa Director Paulina Alexander said they had a fantastic turn out for the fun filled night which included complimentary mini spa treatments, product sampling, appetizers, beverages and a flowing chocolate fountain.

“Our team was excited to welcome many of our repeat guests as well as meet so many new people and introduce them to our fabulous spa,” said Alexander.

Approximately 400 guests were on hand for the evening of fun. Some of the mini treatments included facials, manicures and scalp massages.

A popular area in the spa was the salon where guests were lining up to get the hottest hair accessory this holiday season.

Feathers were flying as several ladies took advantage of free feather hair extensions. The avian trend has taken flight recently and many people are getting on board with the playful trend as a simple yet stylish way to update their look.

The Grotto Spa believes in offering guest experiences that go beyond the expected and is rated the number one spa in Western Canada.

Many of their treatments focus on West Coast natural ingredients and guests who attended the open house left with goody bags brimming with samples of some of the many natural products the spa carries.

They will be drawing names for the door prizes this week and Alexander said they appreciate all of the feedback they received.

“It felt amazing to host an evening of fun for our guests, and we look forward to planning future events. Thanks to all our attending guests who offered suggestions and feedback — this is very valuable to us.”

She added they are thankful for the support of the community and look forward to seeing everyone in the near future.

Tigh-Na-Mara Resort will be hosting their third Annual Toy Drive on Wednesday November 30 from 6 to 10 a.m.
