This resort is GORGEOUS, from the elegant furniture and decor to the beautiful land and location. However, what makes this resort even more gorgeous are the people that run it!
Upon arriving you're greeted outside. We were welcomed by an exceptional man with a genuine, radiant, beaming smile. Every time I saw him he was upbeat and happy the entire day. What a gift!
When entering, there is a lady that greets you at the front desk named Gemma and her name suits her well because she is a true GEM! She is full of love, kindness and true sincerity, kind to every single person that walks thru that door and so hospitable to us and our little two year old.
Every person we encountered working at this resort did such a great job greeting us, smiling, just being sweet and going the extra mile to be kind and show sincere goodness to everyone! We have stayed at lots of nice resorts and are truly amazed by this one!
And only God knows how many times, since this resort's inception, I have said "thank you" to Him for Sheila Johnson creating this resort and having a vision for it! It's wonderful to come and experience it's loveliness and beauty first-hand! I was thrilled when first hearing about the resort because I have a huge passion for spas and this beautiful facility has exceeded my expectations! I'm super excited because it's right down the street from my house! It's the BEST spa around!!! SO THANKFUL!!!
The spa is beyond excellent with it's jacuzzi, phenomenal heated seats, lovely lounge, and the genuine sweetness of the ladies at the front desk and attendants.
My masseur, Marion, was amazing! She was pleasant and is great at what she does! I'm very picky when it comes to my massages, having them regularly every week for years, (sometimes even twice a week before kids :D), I know exactly what I enjoy and need and she definitely exceeded my expectations!
There was a boy named Corey that was beyond helpful and was very considerate. We wouldn't be able to say enough kind words about him. He brought us room service and was just exceptional! I mentioned I loved flowers and he came and dropped a beautiful little bouquet of roses at the room for us! So sweet and generous!
It's nice touches like this that make an experience especially enjoyable! When the beauty of a place is enhanced with the kindness and sincerity and love of the people on staff, then you have one exceptional experience awaiting you! I definitely recommend the Salamander Resort!!! I love this place! Thanks everyone for making our stay wonderful!!
