Calistoga mudbaths were recommended as a must-do activity when visiting wine country in California. We made a reservation for a couples mudbath midweek which, including a 1 hour massage after the mudbath/shower/jacuzzi/body wrap, cost $144 each...a great deal in our opinion. I agree with the other reviewers that it isn't a luxurious atmosphere but it is clean, welcoming, and the staff is wonderful. We had Sara as our mudbath attendant. She was very attentive to us, happy, and seemed to enjoy her work very much. She explained the entire process to us, introduced each step, and then left for awhile so that we could enjoy ourselves. She would knock and wait for us to invite her back into the room before coming in to place a cool cloth on our faces and necks, apply the facial treatment, or tell us how to prepare for the next step. We chose to each have a massage after the mudbath. My husband had Angela for his massage. He had never had a massage before and enjoyed it so much he is ready to sign up for another! I had Betina who I thought was WONDERFUL. I will definitely request her on our next trip. So...from the point of view of two novices I would say this was a fantastic experience and a tremendous value for the price.
