If you’re looking for a fun, unique treat to reward your
employees for all their hard work, and encourage team building, look no further
than the Original Beer Spa
located on International Drive
After the past few crazy and abnormal years we have
certainly all experienced, no matter what field of work you’re in, we can all
agree it’s time to celebrate our hard working and dedicated employees. What
better way to do that then by sending them to a spa to relax and rejuvenate?
Luckily for us, My Beer Spa
is located right in our backyard
at 11787 International Drive. Suite 106, Orlando Florida
. We were so
excited to host our team outing for myself and two coworkers, on our off
day, for the Beer Treatment Spa Room – 3 Adults / Two Tubs
The location itself was a quick trip down the Drive, and we
easily found the location with ample parking. We were greeted by our lovely host
and hostess in the beautifully decorated lobby. There were fun gifts and
souvenirs for purchase including, hats, towels, glassware and more. Additionally,
the atmosphere of leisure was set by walls
adorned with greenery and fun sayings about relaxation and beer.
After an easy check-in process, we were directed to change
into our bathing suits and given a comfortable Beer Spa robe to put on. Lockers
were available for our clothing and other items. The environment immediately
felt safe and clean and all staff was wearing masks.
Now begins the fun! We quickly realized that the My Beer Spa
experience was more than just soaking in a tub of beer. Our hostess, led us
through a beer and wine tasting where we tried samples of a locally made
prosecco and red wine, as well as samples of three beers from the local Orlando
Ivanhoe Park Brewery. Each beer was a different style in terms of flavor body
and hops. The tasting allowed us to decide which we would like to enjoy during
our stay in the treatment room. The option to upgrade to the wine and prosecco
package was also available. Our hostess also let us know that a pretzel platter
would be included in the room for us, but we had the option to add on
charcuterie cones as well…which we of course did!
Suited up in our robes and holding our giant beer steins, we
were led to our private treatment room. There are only two treatment rooms in
the whole facility which really added to the exclusive, VIP feel that my
co-workers and I absolutely loved. They even had our names on the door to
Our treatment room immediately gave off an ambiance of peace
and relaxation. The lights were dimmed, an electric fireplace was going, and we
were greeted to the sounds of bubbling baths and music from our own personal TV
which we were allowed to switch to our own music/media of choice. Additionally,
there was a private fully equipped bathroom for our use, so there was no need
to leave our space.
The private treatment room had three main features: The bubbling
hot tub filled with hops, barley and other anti-oxidants, the sauna and the hay
bed. I also think it’s worth mentioning the self-service beer and wine taps. Our
beer steins were able to be filled unlimited amounts of time for the duration
of our stay from the taps in between the two tubs.
Our 60-minute timer started as soon as our hostess left us.
Following her wonderful guidelines, we filled our steins and relaxed in the
tubs for around 30-minutes, chatting about our work-life events and enjoying
our time together outside of the work environment.
The next 15-minutes we turned the heat up in the beautiful
glass door infrared sauna. We really used this time to decompress and listen to
the music through out the room.
We finished off maximizing our
relaxation time in the hay lounge where we sipped our cold beers and let the
antioxidants from the spa rejuvenate our bodies and minds.
We left the Beer Spa feeling refreshed and connected. It was
a wonderful co-worker bonding experience that brought us together outside of
the office, and helped us clear and reset our minds for the upcoming week. We
spend so much time with our coworkers at the office, and many times we are in
high stress, hard working environments. It was really lovely to spend a day off laughing and letting go of some of those stressors. We definitely
suggest My Beer Spa
, as a small group team building event for any office.
