Tubby Time


Yesterday, desperately in need of relaxation and rejuvenation following wrap of a series of crazy deadlines, I headed to Urban Oasis. Urban Oasis offers private and community hot tub sessions and massages set within peaceful, elegantly appointed rooms. (Sessions are suit on; the community tub schedule largely is co-ed, but there is some single sex availability.) Towels and plush robes are provided, and change rooms and showers are stocked with quality body products. During my visit I was the only person in the community tub and enjoyed a half hour soak ($10 on its own; $8 when booked along with a massage) prior to my massage with Beth, who was marvelous at untying the knots in my back.

These fabulous hot tub soaks give new meaning to tubby time, and would make for a fun outing with friends or family (my mom will go crazy over this place...). Student and senior discounts are available.
