Fantastic experience. My wife and I scheduled a couples package with an hour in their Spa Room and the 90 minute couples massage. The Spa Room was amazing! We arrived and the staff was friendly. Filled out the required paperwork, was offered a bottle of water and escorted to our room. The room was clean and nice. Spent the hour transitioning from the hot tub to the sauna with rinsing off in the shower in between. It was so relaxing just sitting in there together. If anything you should try the Spa Room. After our hour, we transitioned to the massage room. The therapists were great. They were a little older (not teenagers or lower 20's like other places we've been) so that was really nice and added to the relaxation and legitimacy of the entire experience. The massage was great and we left relaxed and ready for a wonderful nap. Take time afterwards to relax and wake up. As we left the staff was extremely friendly and provided another bottled water for the road. If you are looking at spending a nice romantic night together, plan on going home and washing/changing before you go (you??ll have massage oil all over you and the scalp massage messed my wife??s hair up). Great experience and definitely recommend! They also offer military discount for those in the service.

Zero Star Rating!

This was my Christmas present from my boyfriend. He finally got around to scheduling my spa day which included manicure, pedicure, facial, hair coloring, and a massage.

The pedicure was a slight let down because she didn't have a massage chair like the other places I have gone too but the quality of her work was fine.

Next was the facial which was great.

Next the hair stylist. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! She was incredibly slow in everything she did. She completely messed up my color. She had contacted me the day before asking what I wanted, I tried explaining that I wanted all over blonde with copper highlights. She apparently did not understand so I sent her pictures of what I wanted.
When I got there she asked if I wanted to be as blonde as the picture - I said close to it but not as blonde (I had platinum blonde hair in the picture) She said okay.
She was horribly slow with everything she did, the whole time it felt like she had no idea what she was doing - even putting clips in my hair seemed like a struggle for her.
She was about half way done foiling my hair when the receptionist came in to tell her her next appointment was there - then she seemed rushed and I was nervous because she was scrambling. She set me under the dryer and it didn't seem like I was under there long enough for the bleach to reach the color I wanted. But she took off my foil saying it was ready, washed my hair but did not blow dry my hair - she didn't even offer.
When she spun me around I could tell I didn't like it - it was not what I had asked for at all. So I told her I thought there would be more blonde all over. She said it looked dark because my hair was wet and sent me off to my massage.

The massage was fine - the floors were so creaky though I never did relax.

Afterwards, I told the receptionist I didn't like my hair and asked to use the blow dryer I had seen in the restroom. The colors were hideous. I can't believe the stylist messed up my hair despite having sent her pictures! All she did was add blonde and RED highlights to my brown hair. I asked for Blonde all over with COPPER highlights.

Now I look like a 15 year old skank. Not only did she ruin my hair, she didn't offer to fix it. When I asked her to she said she had no time. I asked if she could make time. No - but you can wait until I am done for the day for me to fix it then. Terrible service!

If she didn't understand my request, or felt like she wasn't able to carry it out she should have told me instead of letting me deal with the product of an incompetent stylist.

Not only did it ruin my day but I don't even feel like I got a massage.....or any kind of relaxing day.

DO NOT GO THERE!!!!!

Do not go to serenity retreat if you are looking for a relaxing day.

Perfect date. My wife and I did the couples package for our anniversary. The spa rooms were immaculately clean and the massages were, by far, the best we have had in Boise.

Looking for something special for a date or anniversary?? Serenity Retreat will TREAT you (or both of you) to a special 2 hour escape!!! My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and it was awesome. You get your own private hot tub, sauna, shower, and star lit ceiling to relax for an hour and then you get a massage for the last hour. It is a wonderful experience!!
