Whether it’s with your best friends, significant other, or just yourself, being treated to a day at the spa is a wonderful way to renew the soul and experience tranquility. Many of our guests wonder how they can prepare themselves in order to be fully relaxed and ready before their spa treatments. Here are a few frequently asked questions and what we recommend to make sure you’re prepared for your spa day!
