Does the Green room have a spa bath/hot tub?
Hello Vivien, no our Green Room does not have a hot tub / spa bath. Just our Alpine Villa has it own private out door spa bath over looking the mountains on a private decking. We offer the Villa and Spa with Breakfast or we offer spa escape packages to also include 1 hour massage x 2 people in separate rooms or couples room. Check out our Vibrant Living website for more details. I am not allowed to post links here in my response. Warmest Regards Mary jo & Steve
