So ... it's the "country's best spa" ... so maybe if i hadn't known that in advance it would have been better. I have been to other spas around the country and while the services they provide (i.e. the Mudslide) are different from what you get in other spas, I'm not really sure it was worth the money.
The front-desk staff were not very nice; and not really accomodating. When I booked the appointments for the Spa Sampler, I was never asked if we had male/female preferences for the massages. So one of us was just booked with a man. It turned out to be fine in the end (and she enjoyed the massage) but I've always been asked at any other spa. It's just standard practice. Then when we asked if it could be changed, that's when the front-desk staff was kind of rude. Also, I booked the Sampler for all 3 of us; and they booked us all in the same mudslide room ... so, yes, we were all naked in front of each other; coating ourselves with mud. A-W-K-W-A-R-D ... then two of us had the "soaks" in the same room; I got the solo room. This is fine for a "couples" day ... and i'm sure it would be very romantic. For women travling together? Just distracted you from what was supposed to be a relaxing day.
The pool area itself is starting to show a little wear ... the pool lounge chairs were a little tattered ... not what i would expect from the top-rated spa.
So in the end, with tip the sampler ran us about $350/each. I would not do it again.
