Brief history of the business
Getaway Day Spa has been in operation for 21 years. We started with a very simple setup in space adjacent to a working avocado and rhubarb operation, and gradually built from there.
We have trained some wonderful staff over the years, expanded our space, and are proud to offer a full range of day spa services, including spa/ mineral pool/ infrared sauna/ steam room, and ice plunge.
Our spa packages are always available as private bookings for either yourself, with a partner, or with a group of friends or family. The setting is beautifully relaxed, away from the hustle and bustle, but perfectly located as part of your visit to the Mountain.
