Customer Reviews for Sense® spa at Rosewood Sand Hill (4)

I love this spa!
I love this spa! It is spacious, welcoming, calming, and pampering. Located right off 280 at Sand Hill, parking is easy. A relaxing mood is set the minute you walk in past a gurgling fountain. Inside the large reception area are beautiful flowers arranged by Rosewood's floral designer, and you smell that wonderful spa aroma. The spa staff really listen to what you are looking for and recommend a therapist to meet your needs. The treatment rooms are gorgeous. Before or after your services you can sip herbal tea while nibbling on almonds, cranberries and chocolate - and - have a steam, sauna and whirlpool. There are separate lounges for men and women, and a comfy cozy indoor/outdoor coed lounge with a large waterfall fountain. Better yet - did you know you can join Rosewood? I did 6 months ago and luxuriate and rejuvenate in this atmosphere every day. Members get to enjoy the beautiful swimming pool and whirlpool where the wait staff bring you ice water, complementary treats, and offer you drinks and meals from their poolside menu. Members get 24/7 use of the gym with top of the line equipment, and a monthly free session with a personal trainer, free facial or massage every quarter, discounts on services, events, dining/drinks, etc

Top-Notch 5 Star Spa
This is a high-end spa with gorgeous decor and a relaxing ambiance. The locker rooms are spacious and well-appointed. All the staff members, from the front desk to the practicioners, are all friendly and professional. I've had 3 facials here and they were superb - the best I've had anywhere. This spa definitely pampers its guests. The only negative is that it is so expensive!

Peaceful Retreat...
The Sense Spa at the Rosewood is pricey, however, they do offer a full suite of facilities: outdoor whirlpool, sauna & steam room. The waiting area for the women is a bit small & dark (some may say cozy); however, the co-ed area, is very open, well lit and a nice place to hang out. The indoor area opens into an outdoor area where retreaters can bask in the sun or shade. In the several times I've visited, it's only been women in the co-ed area. Ethan & Ken are great for deep tissue massages...would recommend either of them for those who like strong pressure. :)

Great Spa
Although it is a little pricey, it is well worth it to treat yourself to a great experience. The nicest spa on the Peninsula - beautiful locker rooms, relaxation area. Have been there twice and was always happy with the practicioner. Excellent and friendly customer service. You cannot use the exercise facility unless you are a guest which is kindov a bummer, same with the pool. The restaurant is not as good as the spa. Food quality nothing special and expensive of course.

Rooms & Dining

Most of the guest rooms and suites are housed in 13 stand-alone cottages, surrounded by manicured gardens or the hotel's swimming pool. Designed to "draw the outside in," accommodations offer private balconies or terraces that make the most of picturesque mountain or garden views. Interiors feature original artwork, marble baths, and high-tech touches such as flat screen TVs, sound bars with DVD and docking stations, and wireless and high-speed Internet access. The two-bedroom Presidential Suite Villa boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, a fireplace, and a private lawn.

The signature Madera restaurant serves American cuisine that blends bold flavors and the region's rich bounty with a hint of local culture. Madera, or wood in Spanish, centers around its artisan wood-burning kitchen, and both indoor and outdoor dining options allow for scenic views; two dining rooms outfitted with terraces and fireplaces are also available for private functions. The alfresco Pool Bar & Grill serves light fare, including crisp salads, made-to-order sandwiches and ceviche, along with desserts and cocktails. There is also a to-go menu.
