You’ve heard of poolside dining, but what about dining in the pool? The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, located northwest of Tucson, recently launched “Splash Dining,” where tables, chairs, and legs are all submerged in the hotel’s Turquesa Pool. Instead of checking their coats, diners check their shoes – and be sure to wear knee-length pants to avoid damp bottoms. The meal itself is a three-course menu specially prepared and served by the Ritz’s chefs, and includes a Champagne toast. Cost is $300 per couple. For reservations, call 520-572-3000. www.ritzcarlton.com/dovemountain

Body scrubs are a spa menu staple—a trickle down from cultures that used abrasive towels (Japan), mitts (Korea, as well as Turkey and Morocco), and others tools to smooth skin and promote not just hygiene, but, it is believed, overall health.
At spas today, a treatment with exfoliating granules is usually given before a massage or body wrap, all the better to whisk away the dead, dry, thick top layer of skin. By removing this thick layer of cells—a chemist I interviewed recently compared them to roof shingles—the healthier ones beneath are revealed. These “new” cells are ones you want slathered in the hydrating, firming, or deep cleansing ingredients, since they can absorb them. Plus, the stimulating scrubbing process, which jump-starts the cell renewal process (which grows sluggish with age), also may help the circulation and immune system function more optimally.
