I have to tell you that when you first step into Ole Henriksen Spa, the scent of the spa is amazing. You really feel relaxed as soon as you enter. I forgot that I was in the middle of Sunset Plaza with all the hustle and bustle outside! I would really say that your experience at the spa starts at the door. My first treatment was the Moroccan Bath. I never knew they had…
