Thank you J - Yes, our staff is really what makes us special. The grounds without an attentive and caring staff is not enough and we agree that our massage therapists are some of the best in the country!

You can soak nude in the women’s only or men’s only bath. For the communal one, you must keep your trunks on. The water only comes up to your waist in the tubs.
