Health & Fitness Pak: Stephanie Abrams, Travel Expert, Names SuperClubs' Grand Lido Sans Souci Spa Programs as Venue for 'Spring Shape Up' to Enrich Body and Spirit

NEW YORK, March 28, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- (PRIMEPAK FEATURE) It's time to pamper the body and replenish the spirit, according to Stephanie Abrams, travel industry veteran and radio talk show personality, "and I can't think of a better place than Grand Lido Sans Souci! This deluxe Caribbean resort provides the perfect setting and the spa treatments aimed at relaxing and pampering every fiber of the body while melting away the woes of the mind!"

Grand Lido Sans Souci, an all-inclusive SuperClubs resort located in Ocho Rios on the lush tropical island of Jamaica, provides, "the perfect setting for shedding the burdens of this past fall and winter and 'Springing into Spring' with the enthusiasm that comes from having well-deserved moments of self-indulgent nurturing and quietude," Abrams explains. "What could be more wonderful than lying in one of Sans Souci's private gazebos perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean Sea, listening to the sound of the aqua waters lapping against the rocks, smelling the aroma of tropical flowers mixed with salt air, experiencing the caress of tropical breezes while their spa staff attends to relaxing you with European-style spa services? If you close your eyes, you'll think you are in heaven!" Abrams quips. "It's an experience for all of your senses."

Sans Souci's Spa Program is part of the all-inclusive resort's features provided by SuperClubs. Guests can choose one spa treatment daily during their visit as part of the cost of their stay. Among the menu of Spa Treatments they may choose from are a manicure and pedicure, a facial, Reflexology, a body scrub, or a European-style massage. Additionally, in charming wooden Caribbean-style huts, nestled among lush tropical foliage, guests may enjoy massages while lying side-by-side with their companion.

"The luxurious environment created by the accommodations and surroundings are an important element in creating the overall atmosphere which promotes tranquility, serenity, relaxation and the inner peace one needs to find within to truly approach the challenges 2002 will present with strength and enthusiasm. I think of Sans Souci as an oasis for the body, mind and spirit," Abrams explains. "Wading in the mineral springs grotto of 'Mythical Waters,' participating in yoga classes at sunset right above the beach, under the expert guidance and instruction of a local Jamaican yogi, are just two more examples of the blending of the body with the natural beauty that is Jamaica. It is just this kind of sensual experience that helps guests shed the pressures and tensions they arrive with, and helps them to revitalize to return home ready to meet the demands of their business and personal lives."

Sans Souci has earned awards for its Four Diamond Service and its chefs. Weekly gala events are prepared for guests on the lawns and beaches in dramatic white tents. Menus and buffets abound with fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and seafood, and always reflect consideration to special dietary needs to complete the resort's focus on health and fitness in elegant surroundings.

The cost? Abrams notes, "While pricing starts at $235 per person, per night, which includes all your food, beverages, accommodations, activities, gratuities, and more, the question isn't 'Can you afford it?' The question really is, 'Can you afford not to go?' A vacation at Sans Souci is the modern equivalent of the 'Apple a Day.' I can't think of a better act of preventive medicine to keep in shape!" Abrams concludes.
