I booked a 80 minute massage and was able to use a coupon, which reduced the price nicely. I went early and took advantage of the facilities (e.g., steam room) and really enjoyed myself! I usually get massages in town but their "quiet room" option after the massage was worth the drive and price. Beautiful space and friendly staff. I highly recommend it and I'm very picky.

I really expected them to roll out the red carpet for me being so expensive. I would have gotten a better deal for the money anywhere else and I mean anywhere! I could have gotten a year's worth of massages for those prices!

My husband and I went to Chateau Elan for a special weekend a few years ago and got massages. Although the facility is nice it not quite what I had envisioned when making the arrangements. We also took the wine tour but it was very disappointing. I would suggest maybe reynolds plantation or some other spot.

A Lot of reviews are done by workers/employers..this place honestly is a good place to get away but that is it. Food sucks..staff very nice. overall spent $500 at the spa alone and tried different massages..each day.. they all suck..facial definitely waste of money..do not get caught fall for the product buying tactic. i fell for it $200 she got me for.

Our visit to the spa was less than enjoyable. They herd you through like cattle. We had long waits in between services in a room with 8-10 people at any given time. The day we were there my massage room had construction going on outside the window. The facial was horrible and focus was on selling you Jurlique products. Not a relaxing visit. Won't be back.

I live in Flowery Branch near Chateau Elan and as I drive past it every day, I get to see the grounds that are one of the most beautiful in the state. Last year, I attended the spa on the cheapie day package and while I loved every moment of the exquisite locker room, the full access to the sauna and whirlpool, and included lunch at Fleur-de-Lis, the actual treatments left a little to be desired. The facials are marvelous - the best I've ever had - and the pedicures are relaxing and entertaining. However, the massage was not what I was expecting. I got the Swedish Massage and even while the therapist was telling me "I'm going so much deeper than normal!" I felt like I got more benefit from the chair massages offered at work. Everyone was very friendly after you made it past the somewhat stuffy front desk. Also, it is very odd to notice that everyone who works there is either foreign or from the deep South. It's like a job requirement is that you have an accent. The waiting room for the massage was full of business travelers from other states and while it was entertaining to watch the differences in culture, it did break up the 'spa experience.' Overall, I'm planning on going back in March with my sisters and I can't wait! However, this time, I'm making sure to shell out the extra bucks to go a'la carte and get the upgraded treatments. My advice: go with friends and don't skimp. You'll have a great time!
