“Extremely Expense For Mediocre Treatments”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

My daughter and I both had massages in the afternoon and the feeling of relaxation did not last long. The person who gave me a reflexology massage did not know what he was doing, no firm pressure on the feet. The staff are not quiet in the resting room they talk at normal levels which ruins any post-massage atmosphere.

“Manicure overpriced”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

The spa had a very relaxing atmosphere. I only had a manicure, which was very overpriced compared to prices of other services. The manicure was good. Checking out took over 15 minutes because of the person in front of me.

“A nice oasis by the ocean”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

When we have relatives visiting, we generally treat them to the Spa at the Amelia Island Plantation. I've been to many upscale spas and facility-wise, this certainly rates up there with the best of them. Beautiful decoration and it's built around a tropical courtyard so the views while you're waiting for your aesthetician or masseuse/masseur are Zen-like and beautiful.

The attendants are all lovely and very solicitous of your needs. The only complaint with the place are the aestheticians themselves.

I realize that this is the South and it's Southern hospitality and all but I've learned the hard way not to ask ANYTHING about the person giving me the massage or facial. I have been "treated" to a litany of personal woes -- the masseuse's pending divorce, the son in prison, the sister dying of some rare tropical disease, the late-night car wreck, but wait, there's more....! while trying to relax with a massage.

My advice is breathe deeply, smile a Buddha-like smile, and under no circumstances, ask anyone how they are.
