Though it's connected to the KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort, the calm, relaxing atmosphere within Paradise Mist Spa makes it feel miles away. The spa's decor transports guests to a beach in the tropics, with palm fronds in front of walls painted sky blue and sunset red. Eight treatment rooms lie beyond the waiting room with a team of licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians soothing visitors with services from body wraps to facials. The tropical theme even carries through to the spa’s products, which contain ingredients such as coconut milk and Fijian honey.

All About You's relaxing environment and stellar customer service provide a peaceful escape from the hassles of everyday life.
