For years and years the carmel forest was a big part of my life . I remember our weekend family visits to the area and also with the scouts and I left it all behind to live in the big city Tel Aviv and then London .
I have been working as a freelance journalist at the start of my stay and had a colum about holistic life at the Israeli magazine Alondon ,which gave me a great pass to many nice spas in the uk and over the world .
Last week , I went to israel to recharge before my performance at the Shalom Festival in Edinburgh and I found the spa I was looking for .
A spa that gives you an instant feeling of wellbeing for me it was even more a spa that brings me back home .
I took for my short visit my wonderful mother that she is 81 in September and it was my birthday gift for her. My mother is from polish origins and who ever know anything about polish mothers they are very critical. But it’s my mother own words that gave the title to the blog A heaven on Earth .
Please look at the site and see what deals they have .
I was only for one night and felt great after but I wish I was two nights .
What made extra special and help me to relax so fast was the best hot stone treatment for 80 minutes .
I was extremely moved to find out that the therapist was not only Arab but a Muslim that lives in Haifa her name is Zeda which strengthen my message that there is co existence in israel we just need to nourish it more !
Last Christmas I took a seven day holiday in an amazing Spa Hotel in Goa – The Park Hyatt.
As I have a holistic approach to life I asked my husband to go to a Spa hotel rather than our traditional beach holiday. It proved to be the best holiday we’ve ever had and I benefited from a relaxing state of mind and body together with the glorious sunshine and the beautiful Goan cuisine.
My husband and I have travelled extensively, but this was the first time we have visited a Spa Resort and it made an interesting change. I booked the holiday through Flight Centre East Sheen and the great service and friendliness started before even going away. Robyn from Flight Centre found us the the luxurious hotel, set in sixty-four acres of manicured gardens and carefully designed lagoons, pools and restaurants there was a strong impression of space and quietness. The facilities and attention to detail in the beautiful rooms was everything you would expect from a sophisticated 5 star resort with a wide range of relaxing treatments to choose from at the Spa and expert tutorage in the Yoga classes. I took 3 private Yoga classes for the price of one private class in the UK and I could see a change in my body and suppleness in few days. I felt clearer and more focused and my appetite changed.
Since then I am still enjoying the benefits of my treatments and my focus on more nutritional and nourishing ingredients in my food.
