I had my second lunch and spa experience at Salamander today and it could not have been more wonderful. My first visit was on September 4th with my husband and we were impressed and really pleased then. The spa is everything that
I want a spa to be, not garish but rather beautifully appointed, tranquil, serene and well equipped, every where you look it is so tastefully done. Today's visit was such a treat because though it was late October we were able to relax outside near the pool area and enjoy the cabanas.
The interior relaxation area room with the inviting off-white chaise style lounge and fireplace is a great place to unwind before your services even begin, I hated to leave for my massage but was glad I did once my much needed massage started. Regarding lunch I wasn't sure what to expect since I had read a few negative reviews but what a treat. There were four if us for lunch and we ordered a variety of items. The service was very attentive and the presentation of our food was picture perfect (one of my friends literally photographed everyone's food). I ordered the dry aged burger, a salad, a sorbet assortment and the freshly made beignets and it was all delicious. My lunch mates were all happy with their choices and we lingered longer than usual enjoying the surroundings before we headed to our spa appointments. What a delightful day, that was simply wonderful, we all agreed that Salamander will become one of our regular spots!
