I arrived with high expectations after reading so many good reviews. Unfortunately the service was impersonal. I arrived 5 minutes late only to be greeted by a stern face telling us that our massage will be shorter as a result of our bad behavior. Being overly aware of each precious minute slipping through our fingers we changed and completed the form in super speed. Nonetheless we only had time for a 30 instead of 60 minute massage which we paid for. The therapist than had enough time to explain why I needed to buy a variety of detoxification and cleansing products after the massage. This time could have been used much more effectively by doing what I paid for - giving me a massage. The final straw - the added benefit of the detox is that you loose up to 2kg! At 45kg I really do not see this as a major selling point! However, the therapy rooms were really nice and create a relaxing atmosphere. The quality of the massage was good, but maybe this was only due to the short time it was maintained for. The sauna was not working and I had to pay for parking. This is definitely not a spa that will see me again!
