I have visited this spa with friends a few time in the past year. The services we have had were a massage and facial. Both services are top notch. The technician are more than willing to customize the service to your likes and health issues. I have sensitive skin and they adjusted the products and procedure to minimize any issues.... More

We had the spa pkg with a wonderful massage, super facial and relaxing pedicure. Everyone was great excepting one of the receptionists. Terry the red head was super friendly and helpful. But the girl with bleached grey hair is in the wrong seat. No greeting, no eye contact, no talking. Ugh! So unpleasant.

We planned our trip to Dubuque for a weekend away to relax & get massages. Who knew the weather people were right this time. Snowpocalypse happened Saturday night. Our massages were supposed to be first thing Sunday morning.... The roads were horrible, at least that's what we were told. We stayed at Hotel Julien so we only had to walk... More

My mom and I did the spa day retreat package here, which included a pedicure, facial, and massage. I enjoyed all three immensely. Take their advice and sip a mimosa while getting your toes done! They use vegan nail polish, so you don't have to feel any guilt about indulging. My massage was outstanding; my masseuse used pretty heavy pressure... More

Went here with my daughter during the holiday break. We each purchased the "Spa Day Retreat" package, This includes a Potosa massage, a bliss facial and a ritual pedicure. Unfortunately we waited to book a little too long and they were very booked during the holidays. The woman we spoke with on the phone was super helpful though. She really... More

The services and quality of the spa were very nice and prices seemed reasonable. One problem I had was with the front desk. I was scheduling several services for my daughter and myself, was over charged $80 with the implication that I had done something wrong in the scheduling even though I called over a week in advance and was...

For one of the first times in my life, I was given extremely friendly service from making the appointment to walking out the door at a high-end salon and spa. On top of that, I had a great 60 minute spa pedicure. I changed into a comfortable robe and unwound in the relaxation room before the pedicure. I also liked... More

The spa is incredibly clean, no detail unnoticed. the bathroom was loaded with personal grooming goods - all high quality brands they sell. The relaxation room was lovely with water,granola. The heated massage beds were wonderful. My 50 minute massage with Christy was absolutely fabulous. It felt a lot longer than 50 minutes and it was one of the best... More

This spa is a must. Everything is top notch, very clean, staff went above expectations. I would recommend purchasing some of the oil. This was my second visit and I am hoping to go back again soon.
