First, a mystery guest comes to the Spa for two days. In fact, this is a visit from an incognito inspector. This person gets a sample of our reception and the treatments and services we provide. Next, an announced visit is made by a judge. This second visit lasts several days. The judge inspects the site, analyzes the offerings, evaluates the services and activities, and meets the directors and personnel.
