Here are some Spa etiquette tips to help you make the most of your visit to the spa@Highgrove:

  • Please turn off your cell phone while you are here.
  • Arrive at least 20 minutes before your spa appointment so that you have time to check in, change into your robe and slippers, and relax. Get here even sooner if you would like to use our steam room, sauna or Jacuzzi. It will help relax you before your massage. Shower off the Jacuzzi’s chlorinated water before your spa treatment.
