Boutique spa price means more expensive than the average deal... environment/ambiance was good though therapy room is on the 2nd floor... massage therapy was polite and skillful... there is hooks to hang your clothes but no table or area to keep spectacles/jeweleries...

My husband and I had the best hour massage we have ever had at this place. It is 1/2 the price of the 5 star hotels and much better. The kids had a foot and calf massage which was real treat for them.

My sister and I had a Body Escape Package, which included Harmony Body Scrub and Wrap, followed by an Aromatherapy Massage. It lasted 2hrs and was great value and with excellent therapists. Would definitely recommend this Spa.
