You question indicates you think this is like a time-share holiday place, which is not my understanding. They take guests for a few days or a week or more, and you pay for that time plus whatever treatments you want. Please call their front desk and ask your question-- they are always helpful and will let you know if investment or time share is possible. Regards. Chris1557

All the rates are polished on their website, and if you are unsure just call them and ask. They are very helpful and obliging and will not try to pressure you into anything.
