“We had the pleasure of meeting Norman over 10 years ago when he frequently visited the Cabanas for vacation. One day in passing, Norman asked us if we have ever thought of opening a Men’s Day Spa at the resort. We jokingly said yes of course but we are not going to do it. Norman explained to us that his was his line of work in Canada and the rest was history. Over the years, our guests and locals have enjoyed the award winning services the spa has to offer. The relationship between the Spa and the Resort has been nothing short of amazing. We look forward to spending many more years together offering our guests and clients the continued level of professionalism we have created together over the years. Congratulations to Norman and his outstanding team for 10 years of service.”

“A few months ago I discovered The Spa at The Cabanas Guesthouse. Luckily, I live in the area and am able to use their services regularly. Upon arriving, Clint at the desk always sets the tone with his warm and friendly welcome. The treatment rooms are peaceful and relaxing and immediately help me de-stress. My massage therapist Christian always make me feel at ease with his positive and caring attitude. In my opinion, Christian is an expert at deep tissue massage. Always professional, Christian is very knowledgeable about the body and addressing specific issues. I leave each session feeling awesome and totally relaxed. I highly recommend Christian for your next massage.
