With saunas, spa rooms, pools, massages and more, it’s no wonder Spa Castle has become the choice for bachelorette parties and other group luxury events . For only $35 on a weekday and $45 on a weekend, you get all-day access to the indoor and outdoor pools, saunas and showers. Other services such as body scrubs ($110/35 minutes), stone therapy massages ($160/90 minutes) and hand-and-foot massages ($70/60 minutes) are also available. You can even order cocktails or a beer – just avoid the steamrooms while drinking.
