Escape to Nobu Eden Roc Hotel

Take a full moon, a relaxing yoga class, a dinner under the stars, a beautiful hotel room and a spa day the following morning and—damn, I love my job. In making this one of the best January’s ever, Nobu Eden Roc Hotel invited me to be a part of its Full Moon Wellness Series. The workout/sleepover was amazing and exactly what I needed after the busy start of the new year. The hotel’s monthly series co-insides with the moon cycle, which, for us tree-hugging vegetarians, is the be-all, end-all. Yoga under a full moon with the sounds of ocean waves crashing in the background is, well, I’m not going to lie, pretty damn spectacular. Afterward, we made our way upstairs to the pool deck for a preview of Malibu Farm, which is slated to open next month. Think organic, fresh and guilt-free since it’s all good for you.

After wine, laughing and taking it all in, it was time to hit the hay. Nobu is a hotel within a hotel concept, so I was staying at Nobu and Eden Roc at the same time. Yup, that’s a thing. The room is Asian-inspired, ridiculously gorgeous and has a bed that is equal to sleeping on a cloud. Let’s just say getting up the next morning wasn’t easy, but the promise of a spa treatment at the spa made the transition easier. The spa at Nobu at Eden Roc just happens to be my favorite spa in town, and they use ESPA and Natura Bissé products, which this blogger loves. The views, the decor, the yummy treatments. It’s hard to leave, there, too. But alas, I had to return to my regularly scheduled life. Facing the real world of e-mails, phone calls, kiddos, work, traffic, it’s all a little less daunting when you have a wellness series afterglow.
