We booked prior to reading up on all the reviews on Trip Advisor (NA Spas 2012, etc) and Conde Nast - Old Edwards Inn definitely deserves its rave reviews!
We were warmly received from the moment we arrived, with champagne, and given a tour of the main building and the building our room was located in. Prior to arrival, I did not fully understand that the property is comprised of multiple buildings, but I must say that I think that this added to the charm. The buildings were indeed cohesive, but also were connected through numerous gardens, patios and special little private hide-aways - often with outdoor fireplaces, fountains, etc.
Our room was gorgeous and immaculately maintained, however it was the bathroom which drew immediate raves from my wife. I had thought that the notion of heated floors was frivolous - but even I loved it after experiencing it. It piled on from there, heated towel bars, Molton Brown products, beautiful tumbled marble and so on..I have already been asked to recreate this bathroom at home (yikes)
I must admit that I am not usually one for stepping foot into a spa, but after my wife raved about her experience and the shower - well, I had to try. Best shower of my life to date, period -
