What's not to love about a loofah? It's the most relaxing way to get clean in the shower, plus it just leaves your skin feeling so silky soft. As the old saying goes, the bigger the better, right? Well, it seems like that might not always be the case. At the Burke Williams Spa in Santa Monica, California, you can live out either your greatest dream or darkest nightmare with a huge, person-sized loofah.
The process kicks off with an exfoliating scrub. That sounds pretty standard for a spa treatment. After the exfoliating scrub is rinsed away by what looks like fire sprinklers, the spa attendant gets out a giant mass of wheat stalks. That's the loofah. According to Burke Williams Spa's website, it was soaked with "exotic essential oils" and is then used to "cleanse" you while "cascades of warm water immerse your entire body." What that basically boils down to is, you get bathed by a stranger while wearing a swimsuit.
To a few people online, this sounds like the ultimate relaxation experience, but not that many people seem to agree. Most Twitter users were disgusted, if not disturbed, by this spa treatment. Among the biggest red flags for some Twitter users was the question of if the loofah is reused for different guests and just how they cleaned it. There's also the creep factor of a stranger giving you a bath.
There's probably someone out there who's willing to undergo this spa package. The regular price for the Hunter's Retreat treatment is $135 for forty minutes. Or you could just take a shower. This probably isn't a difficult choice for most people.
