When contemplating a visit to a health spa there are so many factors you should consider such as expense, the caliber of the facility and the various treatments offered.
Of course, something else to think about - as they say in Hollywood - is: location, location, location.
If you're visiting the area and you happen to be staying at a hotel such as Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club, Loews Don Cesar, or The Vinoy® Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club, all you have to do is slip into their posh spas if you want to be pampered. If you're an area resident and want to savor your spa day beside the sea, these - and others such as Opal Sands Resort and Sandpearl Resort - are excellent options.
For a quicker - but equally wonderful - experience, the smaller, welcoming Tranquility Wellness Spa or Marilyn Monroe Spas are excellent options. Smaller day spas may not have all the trimmings such as steam, sauna or Jacuzzi's, but then again, they're probably more cost-effective and produce equally pleasing results.
The savvy ancients were really on to something when they indulged in those long ago therapies!
