Enjoying a Spa Getaway

Planning a weekend escape that includes a day at the spa? First time to a spa? Not sure of the proper etiquette? Follow these guidelines and you are sure to enjoy your visit:

  1. Pack a small bag and bring with you your make-up, brush, deodorant, and any other toiletries to prepare you once you leave the spa. Towels and washcloths will be provided and most spas will supply shampoo, conditioner, and hair dryer.
  2. If you are going to a full service spa, arrive at least 30 minutes early. You will then be directed to the locker room where you will be given a personal locker. Inside the locker you will find a bathrobe and slippers.
  3. You should shower before your first treatment. If time allows you may then proceed to the sauna or steam room.
  4. During your treatment it is up to you if you prefer to be chatty Cathy or enjoy complete silence.
  5. After each treatment, you should be offered a bottle of water and if not, feel free to ask for water, tea, or juice. If you have multiple treatments, you should be offered light snacks.
  6. When you leave, ask the receptionist if the gratuity is included and if not, at your discretion it is suggested to tip 10%-15%.
