- To maintain the Guinot sanctuary ambience we kindly request guests to mute cell phones prior to entering the spa and refrain from cell phone use during a spa visit.
- To reschedule or cancel an appointment please provide 48 hours notice. This is a great opportunity to call a friend and let them enjoy a quiet touch of beauty therapy, if the appointment goes unfilled there will be a 50% fee of services scheduled. We truly appreciate your understanding.
