My mom, sister and I spent the afternoon at the Sanctuary spa this past weekend. I expected this to be the nicest spa I have even been to given the high price point and the other superior features of the hotel - incredible rooms, restaurants, bar, shops, etc. Because of two slightly disappointing things, I am rating this a 3/5...

I am not stranger to spas. I have experienced Ten Thousand Waves in New Mexico, Mandarin Oriental in DC, several Elizabeth Arden locations and - by far - The Sanctuary Spa knocks the socks off of every other day spa out there. From the moment you walk in, you are treated like royalty. The staff escorts you on a tour... More

We went for massages in the mid-afternoon. The facility was not very busy, so was very tranquil. Before our massages, we were able to relax in the solarium room together while sipping citrus-infused water and having some light snacks. My husband had a deep tissue massage and I chose the standard massage. My husband and I had great massages; the... More

My favorite indulgence is a day at the spa. There is nothing more relaxing than unplugging from the day to day hustle and bustle and immersing my senses in the amenities of a good spa. The Sanctuary Hotel offers a number of spa services within the property's Luxury Spa. The property is very attractive and beautifully appointed in terms of... More

The Sanctuary is a really beautiful resort and the amenities at the spa were very nice. Staff were so friendly and helpful it was a pleasure to spend the day there. We had massages, then went for a really nice lunch and came back to soak and relax. They offered Yoga classes you could take in the morning before your... More

Be sure to arrive EARLY for your massage, so you can take advantage of all the spa has to offer. I recommend bringing a book too, so you can wrap yourself in a fluffy robe and hang out in the solarium for tea, snacks and relaxing. After your massage, soak in the hot tub, relax in the sauna, or take... More

Without an even close second, this was the best spa I have ever been too. The gentleman who provided the massage, named David was beyond superb, if I could have given the spa 10 stars I would have.. He first asked question to find out what I wanted and then did a superior job. I will fly back in a... More

My wife was set up for a massage and facial and both services were out of sight. The amenities after both treatments were also top notch. The price was a little steep and that is the reason behind the 4 star rating.

The Spa at The Sanctuary was a peaceful and rejuvenating experience. The staff was lovely, met all of our needs and we enjoyed both our massages and pedicures. More info at www.mavierecommence.blogspot.com

I've been to this spa a few times and I love it. Beautiful hotel and spa. They do a nice job capturing that southern hospitality. Massages are always great. However, there was a lot of stinging, pain and involuntary tears in my facial. This isn't normal in my experience and I thought maybe I just caught them on a bad... More
