I was not sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by the amazing day I had here. A girlfriend and I did a girls spa day and stayed at the hotel as well, which was a good thing since we were so relaxed after our spa treatments, we did not want to drive anywhere. This spa is older, not one of the fancy new modern ones, but is clean and has all the facilities you would need spa wise, perhaps lacking only in a a good pool to lounge by. The staff was attentive and helpful and so nice, we really enjoyed everyone we interacted with.
We started with the mud bath, it was fun and hot! Next up was the mineral bath which felt amazing after the mud bath. After the mineral bath, was the towel wrap. We climbed on these beds into these fuzzy blankets and just laid there relaxing. (and sweating)
From there, we went into the massage room. I got an hour massage and it was AMAZING. I get massages regularly and this woman was incredible, I enjoyed every minute of it, and could have had more. My friend got the 1/2 hour massage because she usually does not like massages and she loved hers too. She said it was the first time she ever enjoyed a massage.
Finally, we had facials. I had a half hour facial, my friend an hour. She loved hers. This was my first facial, and it was lovely, I will do it again. I really like the oatmeal, lavender mask, and my friends favorite part was the whip cream rose moisturizing mask. (edible, taste determined to not be sweet)
After the treatments, we were incredibly relaxed and very glad we could check into our room and go for a swim and sit in the sun and relax. The pool is covered, there is no pool in the sun you can sit by, the have a sun deck with lounge chairs and a table up on top of part of the pool.
Our room was large and clean. It had a huge jacuzzi tub in it, which we of course had to try out and enjoyed enormously. It was quite novel to get to have a mineral bath in your room since all the water here is mineral water. (keep your sterling silver at home apparently) We got a good nights sleep, it was quite and the bed was comfortable, we really enjoyed our ladies weekend.
