The spa, which has been called a “hidden treasure on the island,” has earned the trust of many loyal guests. Here’s a glimpse of what customers have to say about spa:
“This is a hidden treasure at the back corner of the Metropole Market Place. We had Ramona and Ashley who gave really good massages (and I’ve had a lot!) The ambiance was nice – stylish decor and great sound system with soothing music, plus the sound of the fountain – truly relaxing. So glad we found this place – it really made our day and turned us to Jell-O.” -Andi D Yelp
