January 10, 2006 – “Me Time” at The Magnolia: Retreat, Rejuvenate and Return Refreshed - The Wellness Weekend for Women
(Victoria, British Columbia) – Good friends, great times, space to renew and find harmony, and a perfect setting - the Magnolia Hotel & Spa, Victoria’s four-diamond, European-style luxury boutique hotel. This is the perfect reward for surviving the constant demands of everyday life. It is “me time” at it’s finest. The Magnolia recognizes the needs for comfort, privacy and personalized service and believes these qualities define the fine Art of Hospitality.
The Magnolia encourages ladies to create a memorable retreat with a few friends, choosing options such as morning yoga classes, whale watching, horse drawn carriage rides, wilderness hikes and walking tours. They suggest Spa Cuisine for lunch, followed by an Aveda Stone Massage at Spa Magnolia to experience the aromatic power of plant and flower extracts fused with the sensation of smooth stones and massage techniques that will warm, soothe and balance body and mind. In the evening Hugo′s Grill offers great cuisine and an extensive wine list.
