Overall the spa day was very good. Loved the use of facilities and the views were amazing.
I was a little let down by the therapist and massage itself. I wasn't asked if I’d had a massage previously, when I said that I usually have a knotted shoulder which I would like worked on, she didn't seem interested. I wasn't asked if everything was ok during the massage or if the pressure was ok (which I felt wasn't, having had many massages I would prefer a little firmer). My knotted shoulder which I had previously mentioned wasn’t really touched. Half way through, the music turned off. About 5 minutes later, another track came on for about 5 seconds, and then a different track came on for about 10 seconds before going off completely. The massage room itself was very dark, which I didn’t think was an issue but I couldn’t find the chair to put my robe on. After my massage the therapist got a glass of water for me, turned the light on and waited outside of the room, so I felt I had to rush. There wasn’t anything placed on my back to remove excess oils either (my friends had a different therapist where they had a warm/damp towel). Having turned the light on I noticed what looked like robes/towels on the floor next to the chair in a messy pile.
I just felt, little things could have made the treatment experience much more positive. But unfortunately they let the day down.
