In the real world, spa days and beautifying treatments are a way to pamper ourselves and just ease tension. In Second Life we can also experience relaxation with a virtual pampering.
My inspiration comes from one morning that was extremely hot and I thought how good and refreshing a spa treatment would feel. I had logged into Second Life and my mind was drawn to SL’s slogan, “your world your imagination.”
That was it ! In the name of virtual reality I wondered what it would be like to have the same pampering amenities as there are in the real world. It isn’t all about the hands on massages, facials, manicures and pedicures. In avatar form, our minds can use some calming as well.
I started searching for spas in Second Life. I found one place that offered what I was looking for.
Beau Mermaid is the most realistic spa I’ ve ever seen in Second Life. It consists of three floors of amenities. You can tour the facility easily by using the elevator.
On the ground floor you will find: the nail salon for manicures and pedicures.
Next you’ll find a hair salon where you can have your hair styled, including treatments.
Moving on to the 1st floor you will find yourself in the changing rooms one for ladies and one for gentlemen. There you get your towels and robes and yet you can have a quick shower.
Okay okay! You caught me I won’t hide from youJ I really enjoyed myself at the sauna while I was doing this article
There’s also a massage room where you can get group or single virtual massages!
If that isn’t enough to relax and beautify your avatar, Beau Mermaid also offers group yoga classes and Zumba twice a week!
Last but not least there’s a modern fully equipped gym to use for free.
You may be wondering how this is all possible. Just bring your imagination, your friends or even make it a unique date with your significant other!
