The spa customizes every wrap or scrub the client chooses. “Our menu is customized so each client receives exactly what is chosen,” Conte says. “And we have a beautiful garden on property that we share with the restaurant for herbs and botanicals.” The spa also uses seasonal ingredients for a variety of wraps, scrubs and facials.

Spa personnel are briefed on the uses of assorted herbs so they’re comfortable explaining the properties to clients. “All the therapists go through training with experts on the herb garden, so they can learn the benefits of each one,” says Conte.
