The waiting room is great complete with coffee, treats and refreshing cold water. The only bad thing about my experience at the flowering almond spa was that I didn't... More

My wonderful experience began with initial contact Chris when I called to schedule an appointment for my much needed manicure and pedicure. Chris was patient, pleasant, and professional! Chris' demeanor really set the tone for the spa... More

First time here . It's nice . I've been to various spas and it's not exactly at the top of my list for various reasons; specifically in terms of the "spa" environment. However, customer service was excellent. Thank you Chris for the prompt customer service from the moment I walked in the door. & Thank you Mrs.Tracy for one of... More

Today was my second visit. In 2014, I brought several co-workers as a thank-you for a job well done. From mani/pedis to massages and facials, everyone enjoyed their treatments. Today I went solo to Flowering Almond, nearly 2 years later, and I enjoyed a facial, lavender scrub and hot stone massage. Again, the specialists are superb at what they do.... More

We stayed at The Founder's Inn on the 11th and 12th. On the 12th we spent 3 hours in the spa for couples massage, manicures and Pedicures. Noriko was wonderful. Went and sat in the hotel indoor hot tub and watched the snow start to fall outside. Beautiful.
