Little Spa, Big Relaxation
Having gotten a gift certificate for my birthday, I went to visit the Spa on a Friday in January. It is located inside a hotel which is easily reachable by car and conveniently has an underground parking garage. The spa is tucked into the middle of the hotel building which means no outside windows. The greeting area, the changing room as well as the steam rooms (there are 2, to be fair) are on the small side. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. There are, of course, separate changing areas for men/woman but from there on you are in one lounging/steam/sauna area for one and all. It seemed that locals come for sauna/steam/relaxation. My services were great: massage, facial and a steam-scrub for which they have a little suite with a private little steam room which I found very relaxing. You apply your own body scrub (they will help you with your back if you wish) and the steam is timed so you know when to exit and take a shower in your private shower. Drinks have to be purchased, no freebies. All in all this is not your spacious, soothing spa but it was relaxing and has a very warm atmosphere.
