This place was great. Everyone was friendly and professional and made me feel comfortable being my first time basically nude in a public place! Would love to do it again!

This is an authentic experience, but may not be the modern spa-like feeling that some travelers expect. Also, you will be briefly naked in front of a same sex staff member who helps you move from each location (eg. bath to steam area). If you...More

This was my third visit over about a 15 year period. The first two visits were fabulous and well worth the fee. This time I felt the ladies who work there were rushed and overworked, definitely not a relaxing experience. The interaction was less than...More

Yes, there is an elevator. There are also some ramps. The largest question I see is how are you going to get in and out of a large bath tub? I recommend you call them at 501-623-2308. If you are male, it is on "street... More

We did purchase the full experience and my husband just told the attendant that he didn't want the back scrub. Also, he kept his swim trunks on. He did not find it uncomfortable. The room is semi-private, although a curtain... More

They give you a sheet to wrap yourself in if you do not wear a bathing suit. I'm sure you can wear one but I didn't see anyone doing so on the men's side.
