The spa at the Standard is a once a year treat for me and my friends. Once upon a time we thought about trying somewhere new, but the experience at the Standard is so great we always return. We agreed that this year was even better than previous years. The services are pricey, yes, but you won't get a spa experience to complement the services like you do here. The spa is worth paying extra for your services for.
This year my massage was given by Barbara. She's a slight woman and I confess I originally thought that it would be a light massage this year. Don't let appearances deceive you. Barbara had amazingly strong hands and she did wonders for my tight spots, reaching places that had tension that no one had worked out before. So relaxing and yet I walked away loose limbed.
I had a facial with Liliana that I enjoyed immensely. A very sweet woman who clearly knows skin. The facial was relaxing and she gave a wonderful head and shoulder massage while I had my mask. She used these cold globes on my face that felt amazing. My skin felt terrific after.
The spa itself is so much fun to hang out in. The hamman and steam room are so great for relaxing after services. Then we go and have lunch by the water and use the pool and rainfall hot tub. Our lunch was delicious--the Peruvian grilled shrimp salad was very tasty. The drinks are great and they'll serve them poolside.
We make our service appointments for the morning so we can spend the entire afternoon at the pool. We never want to leave and count the days till our next visit next year.
