Travel: Girlfriend Getaway La Torretta Lake Resort
Northside Escape: Girls Just Want To Have Fun
By Laurette M. Veres
Grab your favorite gal pals, sisters, mothers or daughters and escape for a girls-only weekend. The most important part of your trip is spending time together. No airfare is necessary to enjoy a world-class resort and spa: just head north to La Torretta Lake Resort and Spa near Conroe. Relax by the adult-only pool, enjoy treatments at the spa and devour high caliber French cuisine. Everyone knows, girls just want to have fun; get ready to have a blast, relax and unwind!
La Torretta is nice. The grounds are pristine, the staff is friendly and very accommodating. The SpaTerre is a pleasant surprise. In fact, most spa rats will be overwhelmed by the high-end facility. The eco-chic ambiance offers the best in European-style luxury. The Texas-sized facility is 17,000-square-feet and features 20 treatment rooms where you and your girlfriends can choose from a full menu of traditional treatments. You can spend at least twenty minutes in the exotic Hamam- it’s big enough for your entire party. The steamy, eucalyptus-filled area helps improve circulation and rids the body of harmful toxins. Arrive early so you can sweat out champagne and cool your eyes with a cucumber-chilled towel.
After treatments, re-convene in the relaxation lounge and enjoy healthy snacks, herbal teas & organic juices. Spend the next several hours lounging by the pool. Escape the family atmosphere at the adult-only pool.
For dinner, Chez Roux offers fabulous lake views with first class service and fine French food. Every detail is fine-tuned to perfection. A team of waiters dote on you as the wine flows freely, the water is constantly replenished and the bread is served piping hot. Each course arrives at your table in a very formal manner. All dishes appear on a large tray, the waiter approves the order and then, individual servings are delivered. Don’t pass on the house specialty: cheese soufflé. It’s perfect to share with your girlfriends.
