Bridal Services Fell Flat. Like My Hair.
I have spent years coming into the GTRSpa for various services and sadly will not return. I am incredibly saddened with how different my wedding hair turned out from my trial run. I took an entire day to travel up to the Spa from out of town for my hair and makeup trial, and fell in love with the way it looked. I’ve reflected again and again on pictures from our July nuptials and cannot believe how vastly different it turned out day of. I tried to guide my stylist to our original plan but the Spa was running behind and there was not enough time to fix it. We were instead, ushered out quickly so they could begin on the next party. Poor hair styling is a small detail in the grand scheme of our marriage, though it has been unfortunately captured in photos I had hoped to cherish. I wish I had enjoyed a different experience.

Exceeded my expectations by a long shot!
This is a GREAT place. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable, and the staff is so kind and knowledgeable! There are many great amenities offered along with the spa treatments: Fitness facility, mineral pools, jacuzzis, and dry sauna. Also we were able to order food and drinks during our visit. I will definitely be back here every time I come to Traverse City!

First Timer
I received my first spa finder gift certificate from a friend, this was my very first ever spa experience. My massage therapist was so phenomenal. For my first treatment he was very educational and now I can say that I am hooked! I believe his name was Kenny, HIGHLY RECCOMMEDED. When I made my reservations, I was told I have full access to the work out facilities & pool area. I did not want to leave the Spa portion because of how peaceful, beautiful, and the delicious snacks were (this homemade granola) but it was a day of great weather so after relaxation I enjoyed the facilities. I am getting married in the upcoming year; I am really looking forward to (despite the drive, ITS SO WORTH IT! ) to making some plans for my wedding party. Very Excited.

Excellent place to relax and recharge in beautiful northern Michigan!
Spa Grand Traverse is a must-visit location. I have experienced several treatments here over the years, and every one seems better than the last! The variety of services and products is ever evolving and never fails to impress. The staff from arrival to departure was genuine, courteous, attentive and professional. I was completely at ease and felt pampered the whole time. I would highly recommend the 100-minute Body Renewal treatment. This treatment was like a full body overhaul and left me feeling completely refreshed. This spa alone is worth a trip to the area!

Too Expensive for the Quality of Service
I live in the Grand Traverse area, but this was my first visit to the Grand Traverse Spa. My husband gave me a 3 hour spa visit as a gift. The massage was the best of the 3 services I had done. The therapist was very friendly, professional and attentive. No Complaints! For the facial, the esthetician was incredibly condescending, insulted the product line that I use, and made me feel really uncomfortable about the condition of my skin. For the "Ultimate Pedicure", the manicurist was friendly, but came across a little scatter-brained. She admittedly forgot to massage my feet, but only after asking me if she had done so! And the nail polish application was TERRIBLE! Paint all over my toes that she did not remove and the polish was streaked. I could have done a much better job myself. To top off my experience, I was the last client of the day. So my manicurist was in a hurry to go home, along with the rest of the staff that were loudly cleaning up, changing garbage cans and wiping down equipment while I was getting my pedicure. This spa claims to be exclusive, but it's OVERPRICED for the average service! I've had much better experiences at other spas that were cheaper and friendlier. I will not be going back!
