None of the treatment rooms at Mayflower Spa have windows. They are purposely cavernous, quiet and dim in order to promote deep relaxation (with the exception of the more energizing Thai massage, which may take place in a room with windows). The large treatment rooms feature soundproofing and soft lighting; there are lamps made out of Himalayan rock salt. In particular, the Forbes Travel Guide Soon-To-Be-Rated spa takes pride in its air handling system, which is museum-level, so you shouldn’t be able to smell the aroma of the treatment that came before yours. You’ll have a fresh supply of air, but you won’t hear or feel it as it moves slowly and silently through the rooms.
Several other areas of the Connecticut spa, such as the indoor pool and the Garden Room, showcase stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The view from the Garden Room, which overlooks the Blue Heron Pond, is without a doubt the best. Park yourself in one of the super-cozy plush white chenille lounge chairs in front of the entire wall of floor-to-ceiling windows to best enjoy your surroundings.
