COVID-19: ACTIONS WE’RE TAKING
To our Valued Guest, During these past months of uncertainty and change, we have been looking forward to the day when we can welcome guests back to Spa Castle. We are excited to announce that we are NOW OPEN and will operate based on elevated cleanliness standards to safeguard the wellbeing of our guests and staff. Our top priority has always been to bring an unparalleled safe experience of healing and rejuvenation to our guests, both mentality and physically.

These procedures will be updated and monitored regularly to reflect the most current science available.

- Providing all guests with masks to wear while inside;
- Stocking extra hand sanitizers and alcohol sprays throughout the facility;
