I spent a very enjoyable afternoon here in February. The facilities (which at less than 2 years old, still appear quite new), are very nice, and include spacious and attractive private dressing areas, large showers offering plenty of privacy (with room to bring robe and towel in with you, while keeping them dry), and good quality toiletries. The sauna and steam rooms are both nice, and you may well have them to yourself, even on a busy Saturday afternoon. The jaccuzzi is particularly appealing, and although it is large enough for a crowd, I never saw more than 2 people in it at a time. With all these facilities, you can easily turn a single spa treatment into a full, relaxing afternoon at the spa.
My massage was good, and I overheard others praising theirs as well.
The only nit-picks: The ladies' lounge is windowless and can get a bit crowded - but perhaps that's to be expected mid-afternoon on a Saturday. Get there early to snag one of the comfortable chaise loungers. (Next time I may try the coed lounge.) Additionally, the lounge fireplaces advertised on their website were not working - the staff told me they were not working "yet."
In all, this spa is a very welcome addition to the Northern Virginia area. It is far superior to the older, more established Elizabeth Arden spa, and in a different class entirely. I'm alreadly planning my return.
