I always love a good spa treatment, especially a massage. I tried a hot stone massage for the first time and it was very relaxing. The heat of the stones definitely added a nice dimension. I would love to go back.

Have been lucky enough to attend over the past 4 years. Many treatment styles and packages. Relaxation area and access to the indoor pool/spa and sauna/steam rooms is always a great addition to extend the experience at Elysia.
