Channelling your best self at your favourite luxury spa – spatiquette (spa etiquette) rules to live by

When visiting a luxury spa, there are certain etiquettes that should be observed to ensure a pleasant and respectful environment for both yourself and other guests. Here are some of the most important etiquette guidelines to keep in mind:

Arrive on time: Punctuality is crucial in maintaining the smooth functioning of the spa schedule. Arrive a few minutes early to allow ample time for check-in, changing into a robe, and relaxing before your treatment.

Respect the spa’s ambiance: Luxury spas often prioritise tranquility and relaxation. Maintain a quiet and serene atmosphere by speaking softly and turning off or keeping your cell phone on silent mode.

Dress appropriately: Most luxury spas provide robes, slippers, and disposable underwear for your comfort. Wear the robe provided. You may be barefoot or wear the spa slippers while inside the spa areas. Remove any excessive jewellery or accessories.

Communicate your preferences: Before your treatment, communicate your preferences, concerns, or any health conditions to the spa staff. This will help them tailor the experience to your needs and ensure your comfort and safety.

Hygiene and cleanliness: It’s essential to maintain good personal hygiene when visiting a spa. Shower or use the provided facilities before using common areas, such as saunas, steam rooms, or pools. Always use a towel or sit on a clean towel when using shared furniture or loungers.

Mind personal space: Respect the personal space of other guests by keeping a reasonable distance. Avoid talking loudly, and if engaging in conversation, speak softly and considerately.

Maintain modesty: While in common areas or during treatments, be mindful of your attire and behaviour. Use appropriate wraps or towels provided, and only undress to the extent necessary for treatments. Avoid unnecessary nudity and maintain modesty for the comfort of others.

Tipping: It is customary to tip the spa staff for their excellent service. The standard tipping rate is generally 15-20% of the treatment cost. However, check the spa’s specific guidelines as some may include gratuity in the service charge.

Feedback: If you have any concerns or feedback regarding your experience, share it with the spa management in a polite and constructive manner. This allows them to address the issue and ensure ongoing improvement in their services.

Remember, each luxury spa may have its own specific guidelines and expectations, so it’s always a good idea to familiarise yourself with their policies when you arrive. By following these guidelines, you’ll contribute to a harmonious and enjoyable spa experience for everyone involved.
