Frequently Asked Questions
What is Crystal Life Spa doing to keep guests safe from germs?
Crystal Life Spa follows strict guidelines in accordance with State Board, CDC, OSHA and other state/local agencies.

Team members will reinforce social distancing guidelines and guests may also notice that availability of self-serve items, previously offered (i.e. trail mix, snacks, fruit, infused water) may not be available or offered in a prepackaged manner or by request.
