Thomas Jefferson was a "spa lifestyle" advocate believing in natural and preventative healing through plants and herbs. To pay homage to the founder of the University of Virginia, our spa combines some of the same plants used by Jefferson with the latest in technology for a complete spa experience tailored to your needs.
