“First Time Spa Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

I went to the Flowering Almond Spa to use a Living Social Credit. I asked the staff what service to choose as I wanted to receive a facial but had never before had one. The receptionist suggested their signature facial. It was completely different from my expectation, it was so much more! I did not expect to have anything done by the spa therapist except my face. I was given a robe and slippers to change into. I was shown to the relaxation area to wait while enjoying a beverage and snacks. When I went back to the room I was pleasantly surprised to have a heated bed to lay on while the facial was being done. The therapist asked about any concerns or allergies, previous experience before getting started. I had not idea that a facial would include an amazing massage of my hands, arms, and neck. After each arm was massaged it was placed in a bag inside heated gloves. This was a nice touch. I love Lavender and there was a nice warm eye compress with Lavender. When the facial was over I was allowed to remain in the relaxation area as long as I chose. They have a frequent visitor card to use for local guests such as myself. I went on a Wednesday and I received double credit for my visit which was a nice surprise. I plan to go back as often as possible.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is the best spa I have visited. Everything looked clean and refreshing. I had a wonderful spa pedicure and manicure. Kimberly was very friendly and provided great tips for between visits. She provided a great massage to my legs, feet and hands. It was definitely worth the money and I can't wait until my next visit! I highly recommend this Spa.

“Deep Tissue by Tonia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Tonia provided me the most relieving massage I've had in years. She focused on the spots that were really bothering me and worked them out. If I'm ever in the area again, I will definitely be requesting her services again. Thank you Tonia!

As a team, it is our goal to ensure each and evey guest feels relaxed and nurtured and enjoys a warm, welcoming, pesonalized service. I will pass along your comments, and both myself and Tonia hope to see you again in the future!

“The best there is....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Simply outstanding. I stayed on business and treated myself for a 90 minute Swedish which was really good. The Gym is large and well equiped for a Hotel gym, the pool is decent. The Manager there is from Ritz Carlton and certainly applies that kind of service to the Inn's Spa.

“Spa for a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The spa offers a wide range of services. We partook of a couples massage one day. The pair of staff were courteous, professional, and oh so very good! Hoping to get back there soon. The pedicure and manicure services were enjoyed by my wife and she found them quite relaxing and high quality. Her nails looked fantastic with a sexy color that I have never seen here use in nearly 35 years of marriage!
