Do you have a checklist for good spa?

A good spa is not necessarily a very expensive spa, and an affordable spa is not necessarily a bad one.

1. A spa should have a relaxed and positive atmosphere. Staff should be polite, friendly and attentive. They should be professional at all times, and focused on you and your spa experience.

2. You should expect booking to be efficient and confirmed prior to your arrival

3. You should expect a very high standard of cleanliness at a spa

4. It is the job of a spa to make you feel relaxed - friendliness and courtesy is where this starts.

5. Therapist at a spa should be sensitive to your mood and pick up on whether and how much you want to talk.

6. You should expect information about the spa and the treatments available to be forthcoming, meaningful and accurate

7. Good communication makes a big different at a spa, in terms of treatments, facilities and your whole visit

8. Charging less for a treatment is not an excuse to give you a bad one.

9. You should expect the standard of facility to live up to what the spa tells you

10.Availability of water or tea anytime are really good indicators of a good spa.

11.Attention to detail, it's really about what whether the spa has thought about the little things that make the difference to your visit

12.Whether you paid a lot or a little, do you feel you're getting your money's worth? You should. If you don't, tell them.

13.A good spa should let you know what products they use, but you should not expect any kind of "sell"

14.It is normal to tip at a spa if you felt your therapist did a good job. But you should not be expected or pressured to tip; your therapist shouldn't linger around you as you're coming round from your Balinese massage.

So wherever you go, enjoy your spa, and let us know what was good and bad!
