What are day spas?

Day spas are places that offer services that help renew the body, mind and soul through personal care treatments such as hair, massages and facials. They are different from beauty salons as they contain facilities like sauna, pool, and steam room that guests may use in addition to their treatment. A good day spa should see guests leaving feeling refreshed, revitalised and totally pampered.

Days spas offer a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. However, unlike destination spas, the guests do not stay overnight.
