OMG!! Best Spa EVER!

This is the best spa I have ever experienced. They are very attentive and have so many services and amenities that it's hard to choose what pampering you'd like.

The Spa exudes a surreal kind of zen-like feel. The Eucalyptus steam room, sauna, whirl pools are all so relaxing. I love the heated outdoor salt water pool. The meditation garden was sublime. Enjoy healthy snacks, detox water, or teas. My massage was so relaxing. I can't wait to come back with a group of girls for a ladies weekend... More

My company treated the management team and spouses to a night at the Umstead and also included the spa. It was very relaxing and the facility, though small, was impeccable. The grounds were beautiful and Spring was in full bloom! The staff were professional, polite and courteous. A real gem hidden away in Cary, NC! Highly recommend.

The Umstead Hotel and Spa is gorgeous. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. We stayed for night but didn't do any spa treatments. It is pricey, but it was worth it.

Visited the Umstead Hotel and Spa for the first time in August of 2014. Have traveled a great deal, both within the U.S. and internationally, during my public relations career with Fortune 500 companies. Can honestly say that the Umstead is on a par with any of the best hotels and resorts I've had the pleasure to visit. From the... More

I spent the afternoon at the Umstead Spa--the deep tissue massage really took the knots out of my muscles. The eucalyptus steam and sauna, as well as the rather subtle whirlpool, were great before and after the massage. The atmosphere is muted, and staff are nearly all impeccably polite. There were a couple of gaps in my experience--I was given... More

Food has gone downhill at Heron's, the Umstead's fine dining restaurant. The menu is a price fixed affair with small portions of each course. I had the poached Langnoustines to start which consisted of one cold langoutine in a cold broth. I always thought poached meant it would be served at least warm. The waiter then brought me another one... More

My husband and I stayed here for just one night but thoroughly enjoyed our few hours at the Umstead. The staff goes out of their way to address you by name which was a nice touch. The food was wonderful- we had lunch at the bar one day and brunch at Heron's the next morning. The portions are on the... More

My best friend and I booked treatments at this wonderful spa. We had pedicure, manicure and swedish massage. It was absolutely heavenly. The spa has great space with indoor sauna, outdoor pool. The staff were superb and we will probably make this an annual treat. We stayed for High Tea at the hotel and again were so thrilled with the... More
