Along with a variety of massage therapy options, including couples and pregnancy massages, the spa treats guests with body wraps, face and body skincare treatments, and nail care. Makeovers with mineral makeup, as well as brow and lash tinting services, make features pop so much it might be hard not to slam into your reflection when you gaze in the mirror.
