Integrating the natural elements of sea, and elements found in our coastal region, Ocean Crest Spa , a member of the SpaFinder community, creates a journey for the user from constant stimulation to a restful and peaceful environment, a true Southern sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

If you have booked a treatment, you have full access to the amenities of the resort for two hours after your last service. Avoid getting into the swimming pool after your massage, however, because chlorine will strip away the oils that have just been carefully massaged into your skin. Let the oils soak in for at least a few hours to receive their full healing benefits.
Tipping is at your discretion. If you do wish to leave a gratuity, the industry standard is approximately 20%. You can add the tip on your credit card, room charge or leave it for your therapist in an envelope at the Ocean Crest Spa front desk.

To get the full benefits of your treatment, we suggest that you avoid eating a heavy meal beforehand. However, if you are very hungry, it’s better to have a small snack so that you aren’t distracted by a growling stomach during your treatment.
