Stayed there for a business meeting but managed to use the Spa (a lot less than I wanted to)
Excellent massages and even a la carte (most of the services are usually offered in packages) is not overly expensive by good massage standards ($120 or so per hour)..best deep tissue massage of my life.
Food is fresh and very varied especially if you stay for 3-4 days.
Very quiet and peaceful and relaxing even if not much to do beyond relaxing and the spa.
Not very convenient to get to as in an hour's drive from nearest airport.
