We love our ‘preggers’ friends, with their super-cute baby bellies and crazy stories of what they need to do to get comfortable during each stage of pregnancy. One of our Zuri Girl fans received a fabulous Baby Moon opportunity to spend the weekend in Lucerne with her hubby for some much needed R&R.
She shares her experience with us, as the hotel and spa facilities come highly recommended!
Day at the Hotel Schweizerhof Wellness and Beauty Center
After a fabulous breakfast buffet (mmmm nutella), we put our white, terry-cloth robes and slippers and then headed up to spa on the top floor. When we stepped out of the elevator, our jaws dropped. The center has a breathtaking view of the lake and mountains. Our guide for the morning, Anita, led us to our private wellness suite complete with sauna, rose petal bath, rain showers, and two lounge chairs looking out at the stunning panorama. The room was absolutely beautiful. Floor to ceiling windows decorated with candles and rose petals everywhere. Everything white, modern and uber-clean.
Anita prepared our bath with special pregnancy friendly ingredients, while we relaxed. When the bath was ready, Anita left us for 90 mins to chill, bathe, use the sauna, read in the lounge chairs, shower and keep saying “this is amazing!” to each other. A tea and fruit buffet was also set up outside in the lobby, which came in handy for this hungry pregnant lady! Afterward, Anita picked me up for my Belly Moon pregnancy spa treatment and my husband moved to the “public” relaxation area for all hotel guests (lucky us, it was empty!). He had his paper, some tea, the view…and he hasn’t looked so relaxed in months.
Meanwhile, Anita gave a full body yogurt/honey/almond peel, which felt/smelled (and probably tasted) amazing. After, I rinsed off and was then treated to a full body massage, goat butter wrap, and facial treatment. All the ingredients were safe for pregnancy, and Anita was very skilled in making things comfortable for me with my big bump. Afterward, my skin felt like a million bucks. Actually, it still does. I was able to take home a sample of the goat butter, which I have been using for my belly ever since. I honestly have not felt that good since I started my pregnancy.
Our whole experience at the Schweizerhof and The Beauty and Wellness Center was truly wonderful.
