The Sweet Escape Spa is operated and managed by Virginia Loo, a wonderful lady, who, when I went to visit her spa for this article, didn’t just make me feel at home, but made me feel like I was on vacation! Her treatments are for both women and men!

Virginia offers a wide variety of treatments. Facials include Aromatherapy ($65.00), Hydrating Paraffin ($80.00), Gommage Peeling ($75.00) and Mud ($100.00). She advises that you choose a facial to match your skin type. Although her Aromatherapy facial does not cause redness to the skin, she advises that you not have a facial too close to a big event, just in case your skin should react. So book a facial at least a week before your wedding date to give your skin time to adjust.
