As a first-timer to the Dorchester Spa, I was really looking forward to this experience. I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and laid back the staff seemed to be. The esthetician was professional, nurturing, and cordial. Absolutely loved the heated bed during the facial. And my skin is still glowing 2 weeks later!
Though for the money I was paying, I was disappointed that there wasn't more pampering before and after the treatment. I was pretty much left to figure things out on my own. It would have been nice to been given a brief orientation beforehand and offered a drink or some fruit. I kept wondering if I was even in the right area at given moments.
The ladies powder room was tastefully decorated, but the can of Lysol on the floor of each stall kinda ruined the ambience. The blaring rock music from a nearby room interrupted the tranquility of the waiting area with the fountain.
Upon my departure, I felt relaxed yet not pampered. I would consider returning for the wonderful facial treatments, but will surely continue my search for a truly serene and comforting spa environment.
