Spas on STX
Is anyone familiar with the spas at Buccaneer andr Carambola? Do they have pleasant, lounge areas to chill between services? I'm thinking resort versus body worker that would come to the beach or my house so my friend and I could hang later by a pool and lunch.
My wife has gone to the Buc. and was very happy.
I just had a visit at the Carambola spa. They do have a meditation room with really comfortable lounge chairs. It's pretty small, but comfortable. I have been to spas in the states where the meditation rooms are quite plush and the Carambola doesn't match that. However, the beach area is a short walk away and there is a little bar (with decently priced lunches) near the beach, both of which I have enjoyed while waiting for my husband to finish his massage.
The staff at the Carambola spa is small, but quite good. The massage therapist is great--Mrs. Gloria King. She gives a really nice deep tissue massage. I really don't like facials because I get a little claustrophobic, but once I get past the steam/hot towel part, she does a nice facial. The woman who does manicures & pedicures is also very pleasant and good--I forget her last name, but her first name is Maria. She also does a good job. My only caution is that the polishes have a tendency to thicken up, so I always test the bottle I choose to make sure it isn't gloppy. I guess that's probably a side effect of the humidity.
This is probably more info than you wanted, but it sounds like from the post above, you can't go wrong with either place. Kim
I'm not very familiar with the Carambola spa, but I've been to the Buccaneer. They have a private pool directly off of the spa where you can go to relax between/after services. I found it to be very pleasant and relaxing.
