A spread of custom spa and salon services foster aesthetic peace in a relaxed, homey setting. Skincare treatments are tailored with Dermalogica's brand of highly customizable products and special salves made in-house to prevent curfew violations.

Paul Mitchell and Awapuhi Ginger products help stylists wrangle unruly halos in an intimate salon room with baroque gold mirrors and pink-on-pink stripes. Each treatment is given a heavenly name to emphasize Helle's good and evil theme, which is echoed in the spa's crimson paint job and matching velvet tufted couch.

During the Swedish massage, your friendly and licensed therapist will carefully craft a custom muscle-mellowing formula using long strokes, both strong and gentle, to encourage blood flow and loosen long-clenched limbs.
