Massage on a gondola

0

The massage lasts 40 minutesIt”s the ultimate luxury.

As celebrations continue for its 50th anniversary year, the Hotel Cipriani has announced that is offering massages on a gondola in Venice.

In perfectly natural synergy, the gently rocking of the gondola and the talented hands of a masseuse induce a profound sense of calm, allowing the mind and body to effortlessly drift into a natural state of relaxation that washes away every ounce of stress.

A mat that has been specially designed to embrace the shape of the gondola cradles the body during this massage, which places special focus on the back, shoulders, neck, and face.

This special 40-minute body treatment ends with a foot massage and the opportunity to relax in the hotel”s fragrant and shaded garden with a cooling iced tea.

A special place for the gondola massage has been created in a hidden corner of the Venetian lagoon.

The Hotel Cipriani Gondola Massage is priced from €270 (£240).

Venice – Fall in love all over again on a Gondola ride on the Grand Canal and lose yourself in the grand St Marks Square.

Holiday ”priority” despite credit crunch

0

Getting away still important to BritonsThe credit crunch will not stop over a third of Britons taking a summer holiday abroad this year, new research has found.

An ICM poll carried out for the BBC discovered that despite rising living costs and fuel prices, more than one-third are still set to leave the country for a break.

However, there were various factors determining who was planning to go where, the survey said.

Of 1,007 respondents, those from Scotland were least likely to forgo sun and sea due to money worries. The most travel-happy age group was the 18 to 24-year-old bracket.

But residents in the Midlands were most likely to stay at home, it was found.

According to travel operators” association Abta, Spain was the most popular hotspot for Brits heading abroad, although the biggest areas of growth were seen outside the eurozone.

And recent research from Tesco Personal Finance, Britons are not setting themselves any spending limits while on holiday.

Nearly 63 per cent of those asked in a survey said they did not restrict themselves to a certain daily budget.
