    I've heard raves about the spa in Rosemary, not sure of the name. I've been to Spa Blue in Grayton...great marketing material got me a gift certificate there, but facility and service are average at best. I won't go again.

    I thought the Rosemary Beach spa was ok, at best. The massage was fine, though it seemed there was little effort put into atmosphere (e.g., no candles, scents, etc., in the massage room) and the masseuse seemed pretty distant. Three of us went together and 2 out of the 3 of us felt this way.

    The place itself is very nice and the staff that welcomed us was good (though they made a mistake on our reservations and had to scramble to get us a masseuse which could be why the masseuse didn't seem too happy).

    As always, that could have been an exception to their regular service. We spent close to $500 there that day (3 massages and we bought some huge bottles of shampoo and body wash because we loved the smell), so it was an expensive exception for us!

    So, my plan is to go through 30A over the next year trying out the different spas. I head that Watercolor is very good as is the health place at Blue Mountain Beach. And I'll eventually go back to Rosemary Beach's spa as well to see if it was indeed an exception but I'll try out a few others first.

    I've had great experiences at Solace - Rosemary Beach's spa. I've been a few times -- as have family and friends. And everyone has been really happy. But I can't wait to hear about your other spa experiences. Please report back!

    For the Health of It is great for a massage.

    Serenity by the Sea is the place to go for a spa experience. You have all day access to jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, etc; and you can have lunch in their comfortable lounge area. It's a very relaxing environment.

    K, Serenity seems to be too far and male and females are seperated, so that won't work. Want to be able to enjoy time with my fellow. I'd like a good atmosphere with great treatment technicians. Is for the health of it a day spa? I can't seem to find a website for them. I heard there was another one in seaside. Aquanis?
