How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was my first Goldstar experience and I have to say it was awesome. i got this for my high maintenence sister as a birthday surprise, just to do something different other than the usual restaurant and spa stuff that she always has a "been there done that" attitude about. We did the whole day of treatments together, so we could talk and hang out while we got foot baths, reflexology and sauna detox sessions. The main area was a big relaxing room with natural lighting and a view of a pretty water garden outside that even had ducks frolicking in it. We noshed on a variety of tasty spa salads, which were all crisp, colorful and refreshing, and we had a few fruity cocktails loaded with chunks of fresh mellon, pinapple and strawberries that you could have with or without organic vodka. My sister went for the vodka, I had the non alcoholic version, after we hung out and chatted in the far infra red sauna together. My sister loved the sauna which doesn't get super hot like regular saunas but you still sweat and detox more comfortably. We hadn't seen eachother in months and doing all the treatments together gave us our quality gossip time and much needed laughs. The staff were cool, fun people who made us feel at home, and happy. They explained what all the detox treatments did, and they gave us deliciously relaxing foot messages and lymphatic massage on the face and neck. What I also loved about the spa day was the loungey casual atmosphere. The smooth, hip background music in the main room gave it a festive atmosphere that everyone there seemed to be pleased with. I was tempted to steal the hot rock message bed. I warn you it's highly addictive and insanely relaxing. I left feeling like I had a mini vacation for my mind and body and soul. We found out how to recover from fatigue and burnout, and my sister had a blast. My only problem now is..how do I top this? I would definitely do it again for myself , and make it a default party spot for all the 'been there done that" people in my life who need a shot of fresh and different.
