Menu of Services
As a guest of the Umstead Hotel & Spa, we want to ensure you are totally comfortable and all your needs and personal details are met in a friendly and professional way. Our associates will ensure that your visit to The Umstead Spa is a relaxing and beneficial experience during your stay in Cary, North Carolina.
The Umstead Spa is an adult enclave; therefore, we kindly ask that you be 18 years of age or older to enjoy our spa services and facilities. However, children under the age of 18, when accompanied by an adult, may receive a manicure or pedicure.
If you are receiving a facial, body treatment or massage we ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Allow enough time to familiarize yourself with all the facilities we offer; change into your robe and slippers; warm your muscles, open your pores and relax in the steam, sauna and/or whirlpool; cool down with a shower and rest quietly in one of the lounges at the Umstead Spa in order to receive the full benefits of your treatment.
For nail care appointments, please arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time. As a courtesy to our guests, all appointments begin with a brief consultation with one of our massage therapists and conclude at the scheduled time.
If you need to cancel or re-schedule an appointment at our Umstead Spa, please provide us with at least 24 hours notice in order to avoid being charged in full for your scheduled spa appointment. "No-shows" will receive full charge to your room or credit card for the reserved services. We request 48 hours notice for cancellation of any Spa package or appointments for parties of three or more.
Please respect the tranquility of the Umstead Spa by not bringing your cell phone, PDA and other electronic devices. We are however, "iPod friendly" and invite you to bring yours to your treatment room if you want to listen to your own music.
