Any budget can be maximized with a little creativity and a lot of hard work. We solicited help from our spa staff for many of the labor-intensive tasks, such as painting. This team-building adventure made the project a point of personal pride for everyone. Their massages, facials and pedicures have always been amazing, so I want to make sure the place they work in is as good as they are. When estheticians, massage therapists and nail techs are eager to show off their spa, you will have achieved something that no amount of money can buy. The real reward comes with client comments like this five-star review posted online by Carol G., a happy client: “What fun it was at the Lamar Spa. I went for a facial and was able to utilize the beautiful spa for the whole day. The facial was so wonderful. Carvel did such a great job. I swam in the sparkling pool, enjoyed the lovely sauna and steam room, and had some healthy snacks from the cozy spa café. I had such a relaxing day, and it was such a great deal, too. I can’t wait to go back for another day at the Lamar. The location is close to Fashion Square Mall, so I can see this being a regular part of my week!”
