How to make the most of spa treatments

Not all spas are created equally

Every spa has something different to offer and the services or the fashion that the services differ from every place. You need to clarify clearly of what you need or expect in order to make the most of the spa that you are about to visit.

Take a tour

Once you are at the spa, ask what all they have to offer and choose your service accordingly of what you exactly need.

Prepare a list of questions

Do your homework before visiting the spa, and prepare a list of questions that you need to clarify before the treatment, so that everything is clear. There might be certain things that you wish to be excluded, and you may end up paying extra for it.

Ask if there are existing promotions

If you are staying at the same resort, ask in advance about the package that they are about to offer you. Do not be hesitant to ask for some special discounts. If you don’t ask, you don’t get them in most of the cases.


If you are uncomfortable about anything in particular, or are experiencing some discomfort or pain in the service, ensure that you communicate clearly.

Don’t be late

Most of the spas ask you to arrive 30 minutes in advance, so that you can change and take a shower before the therapist is ready. If you are late, you may not be able to enjoy the experience in calm and end up hurrying in the entire experience.
