excellent retur visit
I recently went back for a much needed R&R. The massage, thou pricer than normal spa, was excellent. The clean, yet inviting setting was amazing, which was a perfect setup for the relaxing swedish massage. Will def visit again. Not your everyday spa, but, worth the price for special occasions.

Wonderful Anniversary
My husband and I stayed at the Carriage House to celebrate our anniversary and I received two glorious spa treatments while there. The first one I scheduled was the 50 minute Kohler massage. It was fantastic! I was given a choice of massage oils (I chose lavender) and music. My massage was so relaxing, but the time went by too fast (they are never long enough!). I came out of the treatment room feeling like jello and went to my next treatment, Lavender Rain. I had never gotten a hydrotherapy treatment before this one, so I didn't know what to expect. I would absolutely get it again. I loved the lavender and eucalyptus scent combination and the scrub (which I purchased at the spa boutique afterward) was fantastic! I came out exfoliated and so relaxed, without a care in the world! Both of my massage therapists were excellent also! I found the spa itself to be a little confusing to navigate, but it was my first time at the Kohler Waters Spa. The place to stay for sure is the Carriage House, since it gives you direct access to the spa and has decadent and luxurious amenities ! The room was fantastic, as was the service. I can't wait to go back and be pampered again!

Wonderful addition to a wonderful weekend
My other half and I decided to celebrate 10 years of being together by taking a weekend getaway. We decided upon Kohler and I am so glad that I did. After booking our stay I found out about Spa Wellness week and was able to book two services for myself and other half. We had the Sea Lime Sigh and it was well worth it. My esthetician Maddy was wonderful. She exfoliated my entire body, and did wonderful work on my feet and head. The facility was wonderful, everyone very helpful and friendly. I can't wait to return.

Great Find on Spafinder !
I have heard about Kohler for years and decided to check into Spafinder for more info. Boy was I glad I did ! Definitely stay in the Carriage House which is above the spa. The rooms were absolutely wonderful completely decked out in Kohler fixtures. The shower and tub was top of the line. I actually would of been happy to never leave the room. ( In your robe ) It's a quick trip down the elevator to the spa. My husband and I both had massages and enjoyed the other features of the spa. Pool is small but has a great waterfall. The staff was very attentive to our needs. There are many restaurants to choose from. We ate dinner at the Golf course. It was fantastic! Also don't miss the brunch on Sundays. Best one I've ever been to ! Creme Bulee french toast !! Yummy. Don't forget to visit the Kohler Design Center. It will inspire you to redo your bathroom into your own private spa.

pretty nice, crowded though
I enjoyed the facial and massage, as I very much so needed a lil R&R. The treatment rooms are good sized with 3 different music selections, so, you get to pick. We went on a weekend, and it was pretty crowded. I am surprised by the amount of people in the facility, given the price of each service.

Beautiful facility, crowded, expensive
I was there with my husband on a weekend about a year ago. The decor was beautiful. However, it was too crowded--hard to find a place to sit and relax next to one another. I guess that's too be expected during the weekend. However, we did enjoy our massages although they were more expensive that any other spa I've been to in Wisconsin. We liked our room at the Inn on Wood Lake, and it was nice that you could stay there and use the spa.

Great Mom/Daughter Retreat
Wonderfully relaxing! Excellent services for price and room. We are planning another trip in 2011.

Great Getaway
My soon to be wife and I stopped at the Spa on the way to our destination wedding in Kewaunee. I had bought the Spa services as a gift for my bride to be, and I of course treated myself to some relaxation the day before the ceremony. I can surely say that neither of us was disappointed. Everyone greeted us with a smile, and the service was top notch all around. The surroundings were peaceful and beautiful and well maintained. I have been raving about it to everyone since the day I was there. Definitely a 5 star in my book.

Great Massage
Visited Kohler Waters Spa since my preferred massage therapist also worked there and found the experience okay. Nothing really bad, yet nothing mind blowing. Wanted to bring a friend and her daughter for their first dose of pampering but the daughter was a tad too young per their policy so decided to forgo the "spa experience" for a day spa in Milwaukee.

In my visit I recieved a facial. The facial I had was fine but I felt the service was a but over priced I could have gotten the same treatment for much less. The spa area was beautiful and everything seemed well put together but not for that price.

Very nice!
Wonderful facial and pedicure!

Nice Place
The Waters Spa was nice, but I had to get my money back for my Ashiastu massage, the girl had such long toenails, I had scratches over my whole body. The robe they gave me was dirty, I couldn't find a clean towel in the whole place (I understand I came after 5PM, but I should still get a towel?) Also, there were a lot of people making a lot of noise (groups, etc) I mostly enjoyed their facilities. It was nice that they had an apple to munch on, but it was hard to find all of the ammenities as nobody tells you much about the place, they just send you down the stairs and off you go. I would go again, and just be sure to try another service. Maybe I'll go earlier in the day and try the therapist my friend was in love with, Terry.
