The $10,000 package includes a full day of spa services, appointments at a local hair salon, limousine chauffeuring, dinner and theater tickets in Boston, a diamond pendant and more. “I haven’t sold one yet,” laughs Onges, “but people know us as the spa that offers the $10,000 spa package.” Colonial House Day Spa also offers a $5,000 package, as well as diamond, platinum, gold and silver options, but it’s still making people feel good, no matter the price tag, that really drives Onges.
To ensure quality service for each treatment, Colonial House Day Spa offers a guarantee: “Our expertly trained staff will provide you with the best facials and spa services available. If you do not agree, we will re-do it. If you still do not agree, it’s free.” This is something Onges feels is imperative for basic business. “You have to have that great, conscientious service,” she says.
And this dedication hasn’t gone unnoticed. Colonial House Day Spa was recognized with Repêchage’s Spa de Beauté Award of Excellence in 2006, 2007 and 2008, and now, in 2009, it has been named the Spa de Beauté Skin Care Spa Center of the Year. Onges says the awards are one of the things she is proudest of in regard to her more than 20-year skin care industry career.
However, its obvious she has a lot of to be proud of when it comes to Colonial House Day Spa, and the spirit of generosity and goodwill Onges has been able to impart through the treatments and relationships at her business all make for an interesting new chapter for this historic home, which is now experiencing a new type of family.
