Have you been dreaming of a girlfriends getaway? A spa weekend, a weekend full of fun hikes, classes, and healthy food? Look no further because I have found it all in the beautiful town of Ojai, California. The Oaks at Ojai has been around for 40 years and has served many women looking for a healthy getaway.
A couple of weeks ago I was treated to a full weekend getaway for my birthday with a girlfriend. The weekend included our stay in a luxurious suite, fitness classes, evening entertainment (who knew bingo could be so fun) and all of your meals and snacks for the entire stay.
The Oaks offers a portion conscious meal plan with special attention to good fats to fuel your mind and body. A sample of some of the delicious food you will enjoy during a stay include soups and salads, shrimp and pasta and even desserts. Yes, you will even be able to eat desserts!
After a day of hiking, and water classes you will be thrilled to relax and restore your body in the over-size bathtub. I took advantage of a good long soak in the tub, although I may have added too much bubble bath.
If you have time step out and enjoy the quaint little town of Ojai, the shops offer a wide variety of special one of a kind products. I was able to pick up a few hard to find items for gifts.
The must visit part of the property you will not want to miss is of course the spa, it is a destination spa after all. There is a full menu of body treatments, skin care treatments and a full salon. We were lucky enough to enjoy 75-minute Aromatherapy Swedish Massages with organic lavender essential oil. The treatment concludes with the relaxing effect of a lavender eye pillow while your feet are massaged which to me was Heaven on Earth.
