Description of service

The services were provided by one of the top-end day spas in Scottsdale, so the prices are higher than what one would see at some other spas and salons. I received a facial, which included cleansing, masking, and serum treatments specific to my skin. While products were being absorbed into the face and neck, I received a scalp massage, foot massage, and hand massage. The fee also includes a day pass to all of the spa and exercise facilities, including yoga and pilates classes, from 6am to 7pm. The total fee includes an automatic 18% gratuity which is added to the bill. I did not buy any additional products.

Review of Service

It was truly a unique experience. The day spa has sauna, jacuzzi, cold plunge pools, a therapeutic waterfall massage, and an aromatherapy room. There is also weight equipment, cardiovascular equipment, and classes. Organic tea, muffins, cookies, and fruit are provided. Thus, although it is expensive, you do get a lot for your money.


I would look carefully at what exactly is included in the service. Initially, the fee seemed high to me, but I was told by friends that I was getting a lot more than a facial. Although it is too expensive for me to do this very often (!), I do think that it is a good value, in that you have access to so many different activities and services.
