This spa is in a beautiful location and is close to town but has the feeling of being quite removed and quiet. The massage that I had was excellent. I opted for the aromatherapy massage and it was wonderful and I completely zoned out during and left feeling refreshed and relaxed. I had asked for my lower back to get... More

Four of us booked in for treatments, we needed to go two by two so the person taking the booking said the pair who were waiting for the others could have complimentary use of the hotel's hot tub. When we arrived, the water was being changed in the hot tub, so instead we were offered complimentary use of the flotation... More

The selection of spa services here is exceptional. There are traditional massages, facials etc but also more unique options. I had a fantastic deluxe pedicure with Pam upon our arrival at the Inn. The next day I had a massage with cranio-sacral work by Shakira and it was exceptional. I have plenty of spa experience to base my assessment on.... More

Pam the esthetician that performed my facial was amazing. So friendly, knowledgeable and skilled in her profession and Jessica gave my husband and I the best deep tissue massage we have ever experienced.

Ocean views and vibrant flower gardens. Spacious and comfortable. The spa is an ideal setting for chilling out and leaving stress behind. Loved the location.

We would love to share photographs of our Spa here in the reviews, as it is a very special place. I am so pleased you loved the setting. Our spa-going guests tell us that many spas are in the basement or 'back' of a hotel. We have kept ours literally right on the water, and set in lovely gardens, with... More

I had visited the spa with the intent to destress. I was not disappointed. I started with the 30 minute Eucalyptus steam and the scent wasn't over powering. It was great to feel my muscles loosening. Afterwards, I had an hour in the floatation pool. It took me a few minutes to get use to floating in the salt water.... More

The spa area is in need of a serious face lift... beautiful garden, but the facilities are definitely old and dated. Hot tub was broken and the patio isn't the most attractive. As for the massage, unfortunately both my wife and I had a terrible experience with the RMT that they brought in. What a shame, definitely has the potential... More
