The Retreat Salon & Day Spa
Classical touches add a note of elegance to the luxurious spa experience at the The Retreat Salon & Day Spa. Wearing decadently fluffy robes, guests wander from candlelit massage rooms to relax with fresh-baked cookies and homemade yogurt-and-fruit parfaits topped with granola in front of the spa’s crackling fireplace. Elsewhere, expert estheticians treat fingers and toes to nutrient-rich manicures and pedicures, utilizing wonders such as almond butter, oranges and honey, mineral salt, and distilled whisper-concentrate.
