Upscale luxurious spa with all the amenities. Steam room, sauna, whirlpool, locker room and shower are first class. Fresh cucumber water and ice wash cloths near whirlpool is a sample of the extra touches that make this a true luxury spa in the area. Several relations rooms which plenty of comfortable seating and blankets for coziness. I feel so pampered... More

Once you arrive at the spa, you never want to leave. It is tranquil, beautiful, and has the best staff available! The massages are amazing!

The hotel, grounds, and staff were amazing. Jessica at the concierge desk was beyond helpful. She essentially planned our entire stay in Raleigh. From dinner at Cameron Village, to touring the chocolate factory, and setting us up with bikes to go through Ulmstead park. Our only negative was the service at the spa.

Looking for some pampering and relaxation -- this is the place. From the minute you walk in and take the tour you will never want to leave. The facility is beautiful and completely tranquil. On my recent visit I had a massage and a luxury pedicure. I have also had a facial. With a service you can stay for the... More

This modern gem of a hotel is a welcome respite. The surrounding woods and pond make a beautiful back drop to the luxury hotel from the Soft Wear giant SAS in Cary, North Carolina. (The near sighted city fathers of Raleigh convinced the founder of SAS not to build his company in Raleigh) Minutes from downtown Raleigh is The Umstead,... More

There just isn't a comparison to the posh feel and services at the Umstead Spa. If you want to relax, get pampered and feel you are the most important person, Umstead is where you need to go. Service and products are second to none.

I have been to more than my fair share of spas all over the United States and I can honestly say that the Spa at the Umstead Hotel is one of the best I have ever been to. The ambiance and tranquility is far superior to any other spa in the area. After you check in, a host gives you... More

Visually stunning! Everything was 5* across the board and I would absolutely return and indulge in both the spa and hotel again. They are the perfect 1-2 punch to knock any stress out of your life, even if just temporarily. Convenient to Raleigh, but far enough out to not be "busy" it's the perfect weekend getaway or honeymoon spot

The Spa at the The Amsted hotel is absolutely the best place not only for locals but if you have people visiting from out of town. It is luxurious and pampers to the senses with its relaxing lounges and the amenities from the heated spa and steam room. The facials are sensational. Gratuity is included with the check out.
