Getting the Most out of your Sanibel Day Spa Treatment

Appointments are recommended to avoid disappointment, especially during the busy snowbird season from November to April. Arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time and enjoy sitting in the fragrant waiting area, absorbing the peace and tranquility which is all part of your pampering beauty treatment. Help yourself to complimentary refreshments which include filtered chilled water, herbal teas, coffee, cappuccino and chai tea. Indulge in a few healthy snacks to nibble while you relax, such as dried fruit and nut mix or decadent butter cookies. If you have scheduled a series of treatments, lunch can be ordered optionally.

Apart from your purse and a good book, the spa provides everything else you will need, such as a soft robe, slippers, and a secure locker if you are booked in for spa services. Some things to leave at home are young children, cell phones and beepers which are likely to distract and spoil your spa experience, and that of other clients too.
