Be careful with the prices...
First, let me say that the staff conducting the services at Markus Spa are very nice, and most are quite good at their jobs. However, I would like to caution anyone going to Markus to be very conscious of the prices they are paying BEFORE their services start. My hotel got a quote from the spa for a full day of services - yes, it was quite cheap, but that was the quote that was given. When I went to pay, the price was double the quote.
This clearly could've been a misunderstanding between the spa and the hotel, and could also be the hotel's fault. But I would've expected a more meaningful gesture from the spa given the amount of money I spent there. I went back planning on a 2nd massage, but when they offered me just 25% off for the problem of paying DOUBLE for services a few days before, I cancelled.
I would also add that the 7 hour spa day could and should be more like 5...there was a lot of time waiting around, and some of the smaller services like the exfoliation and vinotherapy were a bit unnecessary.
