Our mission statement is based on healing and wellness, so we do like to try and educate guests on the importance of healing and wellness and food and drink is incorporated. We discuss the importance of spa cuisine and healthy eating and juice and water and herbal teas to flush out and keep your body healthy.

If we have pumpkin services, we may have a pumpkin soup in the spa. They do the same thing for Christmas and try incorporate some fruit and vegetables of that season.

In the summer months, we have a rotunda bar Infinity Edge bar that serve food and beverage. In the relaxation lounge, we have our spa menu featuring spa services and seasonal services and signage. If clients are staying in a suite or villa or they can reserve a seat in the rotunda. It is important to tie in seasonal promotions with seasonal services and tie in a seasonal food and beverage with it.
