Just around the corner is Samoa’s most celebrated holiday - White Sunday -also known as Lotu Tamaiti. In the Samoan Culture on every second Sunday of October, parents recognize and acknowledge the role of children in the family and the in church.

Tradition has it, that on this particular Sunday, children put on a special program for church service as parents’ gift their children with new white clothes, a fulfilling meal for lunch (toonai), and most importantly serve the children as a way to bless them for simply being children. However, for a child, the best parts of Lotu Taimaiti are the CANDY LEI’S also known as ula loles.

Everyone who has been a part of the celebration, knows how important this day is for every child, which is why Misiluki Day Spa joining the celebration to promote Samoa’s Lotu Tamaiti Specials.

More Babies and (more or less) a Samoan Wedding

Guess what? I just found out that I’m not the only pregnant women at the spa! Fara Sheppard, our Administration Manager is expecting too!

Inspired by all these babies-in-the-making and concerns about our wellbeing, the Misiluki Team created a package especially for pregnant women:

The “Mamma’s to-be Package”, includes one hour back massage, a Deluxe Manicure and a Deluxe Pedicure for only $150 tala and that’s definitely a good thing for someone who is busy creating a new human being.

As for me, still busy creating two new human beings, I have also my wedding coming up very soon!

My husband and I already had our civil marriage but as we are living in the Samoan culture with two babies on their way and we really don’t want to wait any longer to receive the blessing in the church.

Samoan weddings are generally a huge social event, but we decided to keep it simple. I just learned for example, that for a Samoan wedding the bride usually chooses two wedding dresses- one dress for the service and the other for the reception.

Hello?! I had a really hard time finding a dress where I can fit three people inside and still look good at the same time! No way will I find a second one that will meet these criteria, so one dress will definitely be enough in my case.

We will see what else we have to adjust due to our exceptional circumstances...

The Joys of Pregnancy in our Samoan Spa

Hi everyone!

I’ve been a bit busy lately with a lot of exciting things that are happening in my life. Most exciting of all: I’m 5 months pregnant and it gets even more exciting: I’m 5 months pregnant with twins!

As my stomach is growing 2 cm in perimeter every day, at least that’s what it feels like; I start to experience one of the not so nice effects of pregnancy: back pain! Ouch!

Carrying a baby (or two in my case) inside you changes your centre of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders.

You learn a lot of new things when you are on the wonderful journey of pregnancy and the best thing I’ve learned here at Misiluki Day Spa is that you can receive an extraordinary back massage, even if you cannot lie on your stomach. Thank goodness!

Our trained beauty therapists are aware of the sore spots on a pregnant woman and are able to provide relief by massaging the back, while lying on the side. Of course they also know which areas and techniques to avoid.  They don’t use essential oils, but only 100% Samoan extra virgin organic coconut oil, which also helps with stretch marks (that’s another story to come).

But of course you don’t have to be pregnant to experience the wonderful benefits of a massage or another beauty or body treatment here at our spa in Samoa.

Don’t forget to sign up for the Misiluki email newsletter here on our website and receive a 50% voucher for a massage treatment of your choice and be the first one to know about new specials coming up!

 

 

 

 
Newsletter: Our Caveman

Many believe that women are more self conscious about their looks than men, but what if I told you that men tend to be just as self conscious as women?

How do I know this? Well simple. One day my Dad rented a small car to go travel to Savaii and realized it looked too ‘feminine’ for him so he decided to leave me with the rental as he took our heavy duty, spacious, gas guzzling, family van instead. He would rather spend more money to look good in our van than to save money and look otherwise in a smaller car.

Finally, my Dad is a clean shaven type of guy. He’s never grown out his mustache or his beard, which I secretly believe is a part of the Samoan culture, as most Samoan men have no facial hair but then again it could be a growing trend. Either way the fact of the matter is that my dad will not take a step out of his room, if he did not shave because he knows very well that his face will be the first thing people see.

One day, I noticed a few ingrown hairs on his face, located just below his chin. It caught my eye as it was starting to show redness and irritation, so then I- the marketing manager for our infamous Samoan Spa-encouraged him to use a scrub to get rid of his ingrown hair, but he declined mumbling under his breath that only women use facial scrubs.

However, what he doesn’t know is that facial scrubs are not just a female practice-it’s unisex practice that fails to be acknowledged.

Alanieta Senibai Kata, Misiluki’s certified beauty therapist, encourages everyone-including my old man, to get facials which work to give the skin a healthy glow. Facials help to thoroughly clean pores, moisturize the skin and massage the muscles in the face as well reduce redness, irritation and prevent ingrown hairs.

Her professional advice would be to introduce my dad to one of Misiluki’s deluxe facials to help prevent ingrown hair and any other facial irritations.

But the challenge comes with getting my dad to get a facial as he refuses to do any ‘feminine’-like activity. So for the sake of my father and every other male out there, Misiluki Day Spa has created a package for MEN-ONLY in what we like to call the Man-Scape package.

This package is an express form of every treatment we have to suit even the busiest man on earth.

The Man-Scape package includes an express Man-icure for his hands, Med-icure for his feet, Man-facial for his face, and 60 minutes of any Samoan massage of his choice, all of which are under 2 hours and under $200 tala which saves him money and time.

There’s simply no deal better than this, because we here at Misiluki Day Spa love to take care of our men, even our cavemen.

So book an appointment for HIM to experience body treatments that can help him discover healthy skin-something every cavemen has.
