You do some strange things on the eve of surrendering the single life (no, not that) but I wanted to treat her with caviar.
Thing was that this was out in the sticks and so the first taste of Beluga would have to wait.
For when mes amis would invite me to the French Embassy in Dublin.
I ended up becoming as much a fixture as Le Tricolore outside the Fitzwilliam Lane maison.
Truth is there are other French delicacies I’d prefer and I’m still exploring them.
Wear your caviar
Now unless you’re a sloppy eater (guilty!) you’d never let a bubble of caviar slip from your mouth.
Only rubbing it onto your skin is actually good for you.
And better still if a masseuse with sensual hands is rubbing it into you.
And while my shoulders are tensing up at my desk didn’t this survey drop into my inbox from wellness specialists CFAH.
The Maldives are all about luxury so it shouldn’t surprise you if such a masseuse is on hand.
And there is at the St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort.
Where for $750, you can indulge in a three-hour treatment, the Caviar Journey, that uses anti-ageing properties of caviar extract.
Feel the wrinkles, spots and scars fall off.
It involves an exfoliation, a magnesium massage and a lavender bath.
With champagne and caviar, of course.
But still not as dear as…
Yes, even Caviar in the Maldives isn’t the most luxurious treatment out there (though it’d do for me).
Because Abu Dhabi is offering A Day of Gold, which was, of course, featured at the World Spa Awards.
For $1,150 you can experience a luxurious gold Hammam and the spa’s signature Palance Massage.
And once hammamed then Goddamn… you’ll be back.
The Fabu Dhabi treat includes a small lunch (only small?) before you get indulged in a 24-Carat Gold Radiance Facial and a Bastien Pedicure.
Or this Beverly Thrill
And in the land that time forgot Californians think nothing of splashing the cash to hang on to their youth.
The Peninsula Spa Beverly Hills offers a 120-minute long high tech facial for $1,500 (costing you $12.50 a minute).
This facial is described as a six-in-one treatment that uses cutting edge technology to ‘enhance’ and ‘enrich’ the skin.
It aims to stimulate and tone your inner skin to reveal it’s inner glow.
Because once you’re out with the beautiful people…
But the spa of spas is at the Talise Ottoman Spa at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray in Dubai.
Where for $6,800 you’ll get a 24-Karat Gold Mask.
The treatment also includes an argan oil massage and a luxury skin softening milk bath.
It’ll leave you looking radiant with a natural glow.
Tip top treatments
All tip top treatments I think you’d agree.
And just a word with one very close to my heart a masseuse remember to tip the ones with the magic fingers.
