I will first disclose that I write a blog on spas. It was for this purpose that I visited this property. I also visited another property that I was not so impressed with but that is another review. Sandy Lane Spa is certainly not to be believed. From the moment you descend down the double staircases to the curving reception desk you know that you are some place special.
I work in the spa industry myself and have never experienced the level of treatments offered or the esthetics of this place. The treatment room is probably the size of my living room with en suite bathroom. Many of the rooms have a private plunge pool and it was my first experience seeing an "ice cave" and rhassoul-a kind of mosaic tiled steamroom with Eucalyptus. They offer a fabulous array of water treatments from scotch hose (the first I've seen since my academy training) to a futuristic hydrotherapy tub which changes colors according to your chakra. I would highly recommend that anyone who loves spa-ing and has a few bucks to spare take advantage of this property. Oh and the staff is wonderful too.
