When Camille and
Roy Malcolm met in the spring of 1990 at the Esalen
Institute in Big Sur, California, it was love at first
sight. Soon it was apparent that in addition to a
mutual attraction, there existed a common vision between
them. "We were both very much interested in health and
fitness," recalls Camille. "Roy opened a Spa at a four
star resort in Big Sur and I joined him in running it while
we also both performed services and taught Yoga."

Dear Mr. & Ms. Malcolm,
I want to thank you for a spectacular spa and the
services provided. I visited your spa for the first
time today and have never had a better experience
than at your Spa on the Plaza.
I am visiting from Chicago which has thousands of
places of what people call spas. Nothing compares to yours. The atmosphere was
relaxing, beautiful, serene, refreshing, and smelled
I had a wonderful pedicure with Sue Ann. She was
professional, warm and friendly. My feet have never
looked and felt better.
I also had a Botanical hair treatment with Lehea.
WOW! Does she know how to roll out the red carpet.
Lehea did and outstanding job on my hair. Lehea was
knowledgeable and very talented. I have had
thousands of blow outs and no one has done a better
job than Lehea. The products she used on my hair are
amazing. In fact the qualities of all the products
used on me were outstanding.
Both Sue Ann and Lehea made me feel important and
pampered. I will sing the
praises of Spa on the Plaza all the way back to
Chicago and I will make sure I tell everyone to come
to Spa on the Plaza when in Monterey.
I only have one small complaint, Lizzie, the girl
at the front desk could not break a twenty dollar
bill for me so I could tip. I had to buy something
with cash in order to break my twenty. I thought it
was unusual, but I did not let it spoil my
experience. In all fairness every single person I
encountered there was very nice.
Again Mr. & Ms. Malcolm, thank you for providing
such superior spa services. I now understand why it
was voted best spa in Monterey County for the last 5
years. I will definitely be back.
"I took advantage of a package that included the room rate, a facial
and a massage last month. It was definitely worth it! My esthetician,
Vanessa, was very friendly and my skin looked and felt fantastic
afterward. I think it actually glowed. My massage therapist, Roy, is
also one of the owners. He was absolutely amazing. I have had many
massages at spas and I honestly must say that was the best massage I
have EVER gotten. The next time I visit Monterey, I will definitely book
an appointment with Roy!"
|"This was the first spa I have ever gone to. I got the India Spa day,
and I spent about three or so hours. I cannot remember who massaged me,
but she was the sweetest woman, who made sure I was very comfortable and
let me talk about all the stuff that had been bothering me... so not
only did she get all the knots out of my back, but she helped me get a
lot off of my chest. The facial was amazing. The complimentary milk
lotion smelled wonderful. The only thing I didn't like was having to
"I was battling shoulder/trapezoid strains all week.
Lawrence made them disappear with some excellent kneading
and pressure-point work. I ordered the Symphony massage,
and it was music to my ears, shoulders, neck, etc.
I will keep this short so all those pains, which come mostly
from being at the computer all day, don't resurface now...
the Spa on the Plaza is a two-hour car drive away. :-/
The spa itself is lovely (Do remember to bring your swim
suit so you can dunk in the jacuzzi...the wet sauna in the
Women's section is fantastic, too.)"

"I love this place. Everytime I go to Monterrey I come here to chill out at the pool. They have a hot tub and an air temperature pool. The staff is great and so is the owner. I also attend a few of the classes they have there. Overall a great place at a great price."
