Facility is great… if they’re open
Jul 2021 • Family
Facility is very nice. Clean, comfortable. A variety of gym equipment available. Unfortunately, several times we have gone to use the pools/hot tub and have been turned away for numerous reasons. There are two outdoor pools and one indoor pool & hot tub. Yesterday afternoon we were told the “tranquil pool” was closed due to a pump issue. Yesterday evening we tried again and were told the pool was closed due to a “foreign substance” in the pool. I asked to use one of the other two pools and was told that they just closed those, too. Currently it’s raining and we attempted to use the indoor pool and hot tub. We were told they are closed due to a “tornado warning that’s been going on for several hours”. There is no tornado warning. We’ve monitored the weather closely. The remnants of tropical storm Elsa are rolling through but it’s just rain and should have no bearing on an indoor pool that is well protected from the elements. There is no thunder or lightening and zero wind. It seems that spa staff just doesn’t want to accommodate pool guests and closes at their discretion. Highly disappointed.

Heavenly
Apr 2021
We were staying at the Williamsburg Inn. The Spa is on the grounds. It was much appreciated after the 4 hour drive down. Nicole has the best hands. We scheduled the Nirvana Stress Relief Massage and I could have fallen asleep I was so de-stressed. You have another hour after your massage to enjoy the spa but currently the steam rooms are closed due to the pandemic.

Always The Best Facial
Dec 2019 • Solo
Need to do this more often, but had my semi-annual facial at The Spa in Williamsburg. Ambiance wonderful & relaxing. The place smells heavenly & the staff are great. Tina, who has done my facial in the past, was my aesthetician again today. I would recommend you ask for her. She has a natural calming manner & is one of the best. I will ask for her my next visit. Just a note to the nice manager who gave me a refresher tour & got me settled in: time to get new robes; I think the one I had was what my Late Mother would describe as, “this is shot!”

Terrible Customer Service
Nov 2019
I have gone to the Spa several times and until recently have always had a great experience. However, now making an appointment is not only difficult, but the staff who answer the phone are rude and unhelpful. The online booking is not comprehensive, no one returns emails to the spa, and a phone call yields nothing but attitude.Since Williamsburg now has many spas to choose from in the area, I will not return.

Wonderful Spa Experience
Apr 2019 • Solo
I have visited the Williamsburg Spa on several occasions over the years and it never disappoints. The facility is clean and has the best fragrance noted the minute you walk in; an absolute oasis of calm. I was lucky to receive my facial during Wellness Week so I received a nice discount. However, considering the cost of a spa experience in most spas (& some disappointing visits), the Williamsburg Spa gives an excellent value always with a great experience. They allow you to really spend the day with any spa treatment. If you want to have a facial, massage, body treatment, or any spa experience, save your money and go here.

Great day with my mom!
Mar 2019 • Friends
I booked facials and pedicures for my mom and I on a Sunday afternoon. We had a great time! Neither of us had had facials before, so it was new for both of us. My aesthetician was wonderful - she designed an experience based on my skin. The facial included an arm and head massage. I was so relaxed I fell asleep. I really appreciated that she wasn't trying to sell me on the products she was using and my skin looked great afterwards. My mom also loved her facial - she had a totally different experience than I did (which makes sense since we have very different things going on with our skin!). Pedicures were nicer than what I'm used to at home - great color selection and really nice beauticians.

We didn't have much interest in using the steam-room/whirlpool, so I can't rate that. The locker room was really clean and beautiful. Actually the whole building was quite lovely! It's expensive, but it was a great treat for both of us.

Day at the spa
Jan 2019 • Couples
As much as I enjoyed my visit to the spa, there is definetly room for improvement in my opinion. Upon entering the building, you are greeted and signed in. A different person escorts you through the facility. Nothing is well labeled where it might behoove them to give you a map or have better signage. (We went to use the the indoor pool and gym, have a light lunch and booked a massage then facial.) There’s are a few elevators - none telling you where you are let alone on the wall directing you. Many times I ended up in the men’s locker room. I was also humiliated to sprint through the main entrance in a robe soaking wet from the pool in need for the ladies locker room.

As we found our way to the lounge, we had a light lunch waiting for us as we requested. There is a delivery charge for each meal. My salad was overly globbed with dressing that I couldn’t eat it.

As for the treatments - I booked a hot stone massage. She asked me if there are areas to focus on and what type of pressure I like. She neither focused on where I asked and it was the wimpiest massage I ever had. Plus I froze in the room. I can even say she used hot stones - warm at best. This was very disappointing considering what we paid.

As for the facial, this gal gave me a better arm and face massage that the massage therapist. Even a few days later my face is still silky smooth. I would go again for the facial and use Michelle. The massage I would go elsewhere.

Upon leaving, the receptionist never reviewed the products that my therapist recommended for my skin. She did the facial person wrong - I even went back the following day to see if I could buy something and they said they do not keep record of product recommendations. I left a note for the esthetician to call or email me and I’m guessing they never followed up with the facial girl. Too bad it was a sale lost.

I can’t say it was a bad experience but it was not a great one for the premium we paid to be there.

Disappointing Facial
Jan 2019
My husband got my daughter and I gift certificates from Groupon for a facial and massage over her holiday break. While my massage was fantastic, my facial was very disappointing. Fortunately, my daugter’s facial (her first) was great. The only machine my esthetician used on me was the steamer. She massaged and steamed my face and that was it! She didn’t bother to check for blackheads or do any type of looking under the magnifying glass. She wrote something for about 10 minutes. Not sure if this was because I had purchased the service through Groupon or if this was just the service this esthetician offered. Have done the Williamsburg Spa several times in the past and will probably go again but at this time, very disappointed.

Even better now!
Nov 2018
I have been coming here as a treat for years when I pass through Williamsburg. I especially come for the facials. I was there for Thanksgiving break and I was pleased to see them back in the swing of things. The service on point and the little updates to the decor is a big improvement. I was getting worried the last time I was there as you could feel it needed more love. IT GOT THE LOVE! Book a service and give yourself extra time on the front end to enjoy the steam and jacuzzi. Not to mention the lovely teas and dried fruit and nuts in the relaxation room. On the back end you'll need time to wander the lovely curated spa boutique. I did some great holiday shopping and the manager couldn't have been lovelier. I come from that business and I'm telling you they are doing it how it is supposed to be done.

Thank you for your review of the spa. We are delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us. As we move into the new year, look to see more improvements and updates in our spa locker rooms, and the conversion of our indoor pool to a salt water pool. We've also added several new product lines, so I hope that your facial was "new" to you! We hope to see you again! Happy Holidays!
