Preparing for Your Spa Treatments

Thank you for considering spa treatments with us. Our goal is to make sure you have an enjoyable experience on your visit. Below is important information about your upcoming visit.


We recommend you make a reservation for spa treatment at least 24–48 hours in advance. This helps ensure the spa treatments you desire will be available.

Spa appointments must be reserved with a credit card to secure your reservation. You can do this online by clicking on Make a Reservation above, or by calling (775) 783-0788. With services of 50 minutes or more, you are free to enjoy the hot springs and all rituals available.


You may cancel or reschedule, without charge, up to 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. Appointments cancelled between 24 and 12 hours prior to the appointment are subject to a 50% charge of the services scheduled. Appointments cancelled less than 12 hours prior to the appointment are subject to a 100% charge of the services scheduled.


Please arrive 15–25 minutes prior to your appointment to become familiar with our spa and to prepare for your services.


Children under 10 years of age may not receive spa treatments. Children 10–15 years must have a parent or legal guardian present during spa treatment.


Tipping is customary. An 18% gratuity will automatically be added to your final spa services UNLESS you instruct us not to do so. Please inform the spa receptionist if you would prefer to leave your own gratuity. Envelopes are available at the spa reception desk for this purpose.
