Jolie Artis is the owner of the new Camtasia Spa & Resort and she went to monumental lengths with her landscaping and sim design – and it paid off big time! I can assure you that every accouterment is in place to give maximum enjoyment and pleasure to all who visit. Luxury is evident everywhere you go and Camtasia should become one of Second Life’s premier spots for couples and ladies-who-lunch to spend time, relax and pamper themselves.
No words or photo’s can come close to the reality. Located on the Seychelles Isles this alluring luxury retreat offers something for everyone. Buildings nestled amidst lush gardens and towering waterfalls, banks of flowers spilling down hillsides and over walls – the 3 sims are comprised of walking paths, beaches and activities, dancing, spa and resort activies – and also includes fine dining at Marina Ramer’s new African themed dining spot, the Author Cuisine Restaurant.
I was curious about the name “Author Cuisine” – I don’t get out much LOL and it was new to me . . . so I did a bit of research and found that these type’s of restaurants offer a culinary voyage of artistic creations by the chef. Not a “have it your way” type of place where you send the food back because there isn’t enough mayonnaise or the burger is overcooked. Marina’s food offerings are exactly this, artistic creations! Congratulations on the opening of her second restaurant.
I was pleased to see there are a few home rentals dotted about the sim. Lovely settings, sailable water – so why not? The bungalow’s are by Eliza Wierwight of Patron and are sumptuously furnished, with an extra prim allowance for anyone who moves in. There are differing sizes and prices so take a tour of each one.
The dining and spa treatments are done via RP, with employee’s catering to your every need. The Spa and Resort offer’s a full spectrum of restful and rejunative therapy, such as body and facial massage, seaweed treatments, wine therapy (right?? YAY) and hot stones – to name only a few. There are jacuzzi’s, sauna’s, beach choices (nude or clothed) with activities such as surfboarding, parasailing and jet ski’s at either one you choose
I love to wander around a sim and explore – and I was pleasantly surprised at each turn of the walking path. Waterfalls are evident all over the islands, with water features around the spa buildings adding to the ambiance and relaxation. There is a meditation area surrounded by waterfalls and pooled water. Water symbolizes purity, clarity and calmness – and I felt this as I enjoyed everything I encountered.

Start at the landing point where you can get Camtasia’s prices and information about the Author’s Cuisine too. Treat your husband, your lover, your wife, your friends – or just get away for some alone time and treat yourself. Be sure to make reservations and be prepared to be pampered!
Here are a few of the main landmarks to get you started…you should be able to go from there. Some areas are adult, some are moderate, be sure and check before you remove any clothing :D. Have fun!
