If you need/ want a good facial and don't want to go far, this is a good bet. Clean, lovely facilities. Soundproofing is a problem, though. They have a lot of services here, and a knowledgeable staff.

This spa offers a variety of wonderful services. I have been many times and love the serenity one feels the minute you enter the spa. The relaxation rooms both before and after offer an added bonus to superior staff services. I highly recommend this spa.
