I don’t understand how this spa manages to get such bad reviews. Well firstly, the venue is amazing, it’s so classy and there are ample photo ops. It’s not busy so you feel like you’re in your own oasis. The service was also excellent.

The steam room was unusable - sagging stained roof, a lot of water dripping off & smelled of mould. They had a sign saying that they would fix it but who knows when that will be. Awkward waiting area and treatment was average at best....More
