after having juliet, my body and mind were aching for some serious zen time, so when offered the opportunity to go and discover urban spa CARBON SENSE via RELAXY.BE, i jumped at the chance. i took my partner in crime – my friend who i started a company with a few months ago, and who also had her first baby daughter on the 26th of march. i know, freaky coincidence, right? long story short – we both needed the break, and we figured it would be the ideal time for some team building.

we had the entire morning to talk about our little girls, our company and everything else that has been keeping us busy these past couple of weeks. we started off with a nice and hot foot bath with scented bath salts, and finished a glass of prosecco before moving on to the saunas and hammam. carbon is a gorgeous design hotel, and its ‘sense’ spa is located on the uppermost floor. that’s why the spa is most definitely ‘urban’ in vibe and atmosphere – i really liked the view on genk city. too bad the weather didn’t permit lounging outside on the sleek terrace. but there’s enough to explore inside, too. we went from one sauna to the next, taking ‘experience showers’ in between and scrubbing ourselves clean before jumping into the hammam.

just when we started to feel the stress of everyday life lift, we were called in for our facials. it was fun to both have a facial at the same time, in the same room. sometimes going to a spa with a friend means you take turns and each disappear for a treatment while letting the other person wait – not so at carbon sense, and we both really appreciated that. after the facial we each had an amazingly relaxing body massage in the most beautiful room of the spa – with abundant day light. a nice change from the dark and mysterious cabins you are usually ushered into. we concluded our relaxing stay with a light lunch in the spa’s restaurant area, but were mildly disappointed not to find any healthy salads on the menu. though it meant that we could enjoy our other snacks guilt free, i can’t help but think the experience would have been even more perfect if we could have gone for healthy juices and a tasty veggie salad instead.

i’ve told you about RELAXY.BE before, when i went to visit WU WEI a couple of months ago. it’s such an amazing platform, as it’s the only online platform that gathers all the good spas and wellness centers in flanders and lets you search for the right match in terms of place, availability and kind of experience you’re looking for. i work with them on their own BLOG and have to admit they are one of my favorite clients. i can’t wait to see where they’ll send me next!
