Our Subterranean Treatment

This is your skin softening, sensuous and subterranean journey, that’s so much fun! Descend to our secret cave and be painted neck-to-toe with a warm aloe vera, coconut oil, eucalyptus, shea butter and lavender masque. Then warm your body in the gently heated cavern where this silky formula can soak further into your skin as your body heats up and your pores open. When you’re ready, step into the next room to rinse off under cascading water before moving into the final, cooler grotto to relax with tea, water and fruit.

You can also continue to massage this moisturizing masque into your warm skin as you journey through The Grotto. Take as much time as you like. We recommend 30-40 minutes. Unlike most spa treatments, the Grotto can be enjoyed in a group or with friends. It is a treatment, though – we ask that you keep your voices to a whisper in the Grotto.

As this experience is very popular, please book early.

Reservations required. $35 per person (The Grotto is not included in the Taking the Waters admission.)
