Tips For A Successful Spa Experience:
Your trip to Spa Mizan should be a relaxing, rejuvenating experience. The suggestions below will ensure that you get the most out of your spa experience. However, please call ahead if you are unsure of anything.
Reserving Your Appointment
Peak hours are late afternoons, Fridays and Saturdays, so be sure to book as far in advance as possible in order to ensure getting the particular time, day and service provider that you want. If available, same day reservations and walk-in guests are always welcome. Multiple appointments are reserved with a credit card or gift card. If you will be attending the spa with a gift card or promotional card, please mention this so that the spa concierge can advise you of any policy that may affect its use.
Guests are asked to arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. First time guests are asked to complete a questionnaire in order to provide your service provider with important medical and contact information. To save time, these questionnaires can be downloaded from our website and completed in advance of your arrival. Late arrivals will result in a shortened appointment time so as not to inconvenience our other guests. After your treatment, you are invited to spend additional time unwinding in the comfort of our meditation room, our men's lounge area or our women's lounge area. For your convenience, showers are available in these areas as well.
In order for you and all of our other spa guests to enjoy a relaxing spa experience, we ask that all cell phones be silenced and not used during your spa time with us. Emergency calls will be taken at our front desk and referred immediately if necessary.
If you must cancel your appointment, a 24 hour cancellation notice is required on single services and 48 hours for two or more services. This gives us time to replace that appointment for our commission-based service providers. Cancellations without sufficient notice will be charged full service prices and charged to your credit card or deducted from your gift card.
Gratuities are personal decisions and left to your own discretion and level of satisfaction. If you choose to tip, spa tipping follows the same rules as restaurant tipping. The average is between 15% and 20%. On parties of 5 or more, 18% gratuity will automatically be added to your bill.
Please mention any medical conditions or concerns that you might have when booking your appointment. Certain spa or facial treatments may not be advisable. It is advisable to remove contact lenses before a facial, massage or other body treatments.

On arrival, our spa concierge will enthusiastically give you a tour of the spa prior to your treatment. The tour will acqaint you with your surroundings and introduce you to additional spa facilities.
