“Review of Yoga with Guy on Sunday mornings”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Such an enjoyable hour spent on the outside deck of the hotel, facing the pool below and the beautiful ocean & islands in the distance. Guy's gentle and encouraging instruction led us from meditation, mindfulness and relaxation into energetic poses, challenging athletic exercise, and back to introspective deep breathing and full relaxation. I highly recommend this offering by the hotel's spa facility, it's worth every penny for this unique self-care, joyful practice. Good bike parking available in the underground parking.

“Seaside spa”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The location of the Boathouse Spa & Baths is fabulous - nestled on rocks that jut out into the Pacific. A soak in the pools before a treatment is very relaxing. The spa's facilities are classy and the staff courteous. More could be done to ensure consistent communication (e.g., e-mail reminders for appointments aren't always sent out; therapists are sometimes changed without notice). A number of innovative treatments are on offer and products are first class.

“Spa Experience Needs Some Attention”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

I arrived at the spa at the end of a tough work day for a pedicure. The wellcome was warm and the space inviting. I settled into the "waiting room" to find only tepid tea on offer... the pedicure was professional and competent, but the treatment room was cold and waiting for the polish to dry was a chilly experience... I would say the staff don't focus on the client's comfort - they get the job done and that is it. The chart of polish colours is tacky - the samples are chipped and broken - it doesn't feel like a first class experience. The colour I wanted was not available (why offer it?). When I got home, I realized I was supposed to get a complimentary Spa Cleansing Therapy which was not offered.... I will give the spa another chance, but it does need some work.
